Re: Journey From 5nl to 16nl and back again or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the 30B

Home game went really well £50 max buyin cash game, blinds 0.50/0.50. The game started with 6 but different people came and went as the night when on. After just after an hour I was sitting with 110 with no rebuys, The next 3 or so hours every time I opened or raised a limper I would miss the flop so was down to about 70. Started winning a few hands again and get back up to 110ish.

At this point we had been playing about 5 and a half hours, I was really tired and talking about stopping soon because I had lost focus. Then this hand happened:

SB: Hero (£110)
BB: Seat 2 (£35)
CO: Seat 3 (£55)
BTN: Seat 4 (£105)
Hero posts the small blind of £0.50
Seat 2 posts the big blind of £0.50

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to Hero [QQ]

CO Limp £0.50
BTN Raises £2
Hero Raises to $8
BB folds
CO folds
BTN Jams all in.
Hero calls.

It was a fun evening now for today back to the online grind after I have done a few bits.

Very tempted to move my roll from Stars to Party after rake back changes and play 10nl FF there, kind of sucks as I just paid for stars helper...

Re: Journey From 5nl to 16nl and back again or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the 30B

Okay time to start taking poker seriously again, been off the weed for two weeks and life outside of poker is really starting to improve, exercising and eating healthier. Roll has been moved to party and the plan for now is 10nl zoom grind for the rest of the month but only 3-4 days a week and other days I will be writing to avoid burn out which I am prone too. Not going to look at results till the end of the month.

Re: Journey From 5nl to 16nl and back again or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the 30B

Not posted in a while, not going to do a last month recap as pretty much no volume online, stopped playing zoom and mainly just play reg on the weekend for fun and I am enjoying it more, poker is fun again.

Went Aspers In Stratford Friday with some friends was going to play donkument but ended up playing 1/1 instead as didnt want to play super nitty all night. Rake at 1/1 was killer but still didn't end up bad in for max £150 cashed out for £205. There was only one other player to my direct left that I thought was any good. Was hard to fight the bored but dont think I got out of line too much and played pretty solid. Only one hand I am not super happy with:

http://www.pokerhandreplays.com/view.php/id/8431524

Think flop plays better as check call, Seat 9 was agro fish with like 60%+vpip, so calling flop is easy as played as he has so many KX he does this with, turn makes it easy fold which is werid as table asked what I call flop with fold turn, I said AA and they was surprised I didnt pay him off 1/1 apparently softer than 2nl lol. After I said that He showed K9 for flopped full house.

I did find it really funny that everyone would comment on everyone's plays giving you a pretty soild idea off there thought process, the other player I thought was good stayed quite about peoples plays like I did. Was happy to chat just not about hands as I didnt want to give away free info and lose any EV.

Got some pretty good volume in this weekend for me, probably not going to take 20nl shots for a while as it was pretty bad for my confidence

    2017

    Been grinding cash games just over a year now so thought I would share some graphs; My game has come along way and would like to thank many of the forum members for this. I have learnt I am a really bad zoom player. I have done well in reg cash tables. And Done well in live (+£390 estimate as didnt track these)

    5NL

    10NL

    All Reg

    All Zoom


    2018 Goals
    • Keep winning
    • PLO
    • Have fun be happy

    GLHF all

    Uni Bet

    Due to only having access to a mac currently I have been grinding on Uni, started with 80 euro, got it upto 160 playing 5nl. Took some money off some other sites to focus on playing here so roll is currently 550 euro, going grind 10nl for about a month and after seeing how that goes think about moving up
