Re: Let's grow ! Zoom 50NL - Blog.

So let's grind some volume on those micro stakes then...

Today:



Some hands from today:

H1 - Villain seems pretty aggro but still not sure this call is ok... thoughts ?

Poker Stars $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players - View hand 2823508

Spoiler:


H2 - Villain is aggro fishy... I think i still should value bet this river and give him money when he made a boat but still value his AA, AK, KQ... ?

Re: Let's grow ! Zoom 50NL - Blog.

H1 his action sucks and might be some spazz, but I do think this is a time to fold more often than not, there are better spots to get in stacks vs these players and have a higher EV.
H2 is close, might be better to x back tbh cus we block the hands we want him to call.
Rest is wp.

Re: Let's grow ! Zoom 50NL - Blog.

I'm playing well at those micro but I'm taking the bad habit of booking wins (2 days in a row). Let's try to not check results before the end of the day and keep playing my best for a full day.

Poker Stars $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players - View hand 2824314

BTN: $34.34
SB: $25.49
BB: $25.00
Hero (UTG): $25.35
MP: $24.30
CO: $26.18

Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is UTG with K K
Hero raises to $0.64, 1 fold, CO raises to $2.27, 3 folds, Hero calls $1.63

Flop: ($4.89) 6 A T (2 players)
Hero checks, CO bets $3, Hero calls $3

Turn: ($10.89) 4 (2 players)

Try to get into the habit of checking results once a month. It's one of the best things you'll do.

I know i would play a lot better + be a lot happier by doing so ! Problem is that being broke, i'm really result-oriented... My goal to go back to Thailand is also directly related to my results. But yeah, you're totally right and i know this is what i should do.
But bad habits are not easy to get rid of. But i guess that's just part of the improvement process, so I'll work on that !

Really gonna try to not check results for the whole last month of 2015. I really think this could be a game changer for my mental game.

ty for the good advice.

Finally running good, might be the end of the "complaining era". I do hope so.

Updates to follow.

Re: Let's grow ! Zoom 50NL - Blog.

At the moment, it seems like giving up on zoom and going back to regular tables was the best decision i took this year. I'm obviously running very hot and well aware that such winrate is not sustainable in the long run. Still, always nice to run good.





I'll keep focusing on improving and on playing my best. Focusing more on the process of taking the best decisions and less on the results is imho, the only way to go.
