Re: London Liveaments

Right guess i better update this

Feb:
- started off reallllyyy well
- ended veryyyyyyyyy badly
- spent 3 weeks losing pretty every big pot i played

However i have been doing lots of work online and that's going pretty well so my confidence is still high, i don't feel rattled to make a thin value jam etc, it's just i want to be able to have a decent session where i don't start off getting stacked and have to spend the rest of the night trying to get out of it.
I feel pretty confident in most 2/5 lineups but just imagine how soul torturing it is when you play 1/2 and lose there as well

It's ok boys! we will get through this!


Played an interesting hand vs a good reg at 2/5

would like to hear thoughts

I open to £15 with 78, Reg 3b me from the BTN to £60.
We start the hand £850 effective.

Flop: T 7 5
i check, Reg cbets £75, i xc
Turn: 5
I check, Reg bets £230 i xc
River: 8
I lead jam £485.

I have this epic lol one
1/2/5
utg limps, we iso to £20 with 88, straddler calls, and utg calls
Flop: J62
checks to me i cbet £25, stradddler calls and utg folds.
Turn: 8
straddler donk jams £300, i snap.
River: 7
straddler shows Q4hh
Not seen a massive rando spaz like that in a while ha

Can't remember any more interesting HH's, have plenty of online ones if you guys want them

Probably will go rot it off in liveaments tonight

Oh and march hasn't started off too well either

Pre, think its ok.

Flop, know its "villain specific blah blah", but I don't even mind just check-raising the flop (interested to know who it is!)

Its a rainbow texture/lacks a flush-draw, and on these type of textures I think getting check-raised is a really frightening experience for the majority of people who struggle to put you on a "bluff". We have better hands to bluff like J9s, 98s etc but if we take it down vs AK/AQ its a fantastic result (I think people over cbet AK in 3bet pots live IMO, from experience). Obviously its also a kind of sexy hand with all the backdoor barrelling possibilities too but thats fairly obvious.

Turn, fine. If you know he loves betting larger that is "normal" online post-flop, you could just gay-bet the turn for a small sizing yourself, especially if he's making larger-than-average bet sizes post. I don't think the majority of people will get out of line versus that bet size, and you also get to realise your equity cheaply/deny him equity if he has AK/AQ. IMO people overcbet AK on too many textures live, but again I dont know the particular guy.

River, O think its ok, but I'd be super-selective careful about who you're deploying this line against lol - you said good reg etc so imagine you're fairly confident you're not setting half a bag on fire, but wanted to point that out anyway! (i.e. people won't fold AA/KK, thinking you're jamming QQ/KK for some inane reason).

Re: London Liveaments

Forgot to mention that i was trying to spin for a macau package last month.
Got some coaching from Labax and this was the result:



Shoutout to him for putting together an awesome introduction session to spins. Was way more intense than what i was expecting.
They are pretty addicting but don't think i could grind these full time.
The addiction part for me is going all in and not watching the multiplier spin.

Didn't bink but at least i made some money!

May attempt Sochi but don't really want to go some where cold right now.

Re: London Liveaments

I really don't like your jam with 7,8ss. Your blockers are basically irrelevant and your range absolutely wants to check the river. It just looks too much like the sort of line I'd take when stuck 10 buy-ins in PLO to ever be good.

Re: London Liveaments

Currently back in the home town for my mum's bday and going to sort some business out in Nottingham.

Games here are good, there's A LOT of buttons being pressed but i miss the rules and nicer people in London.
Casino i frequent in Bham make Empire/Aspers look so professional.

Had this dumb ruling against me, i open to £10, two calls and there's been a mix up in the blinds as to who's cards are who's, manager rules it as a complete misdeal despite action being taken place. Such bs, i know that in London casinos the ruling would be to kill both blinds hands and to continue with the hand. Had nothing special in the hand but still just the crap management is fairly tilting.

Been going bouldering, think i may need to get a monthly pass as this is getting expensive. About £10-15 a go depending on which centre you go to.

I'll leave you guys with one fun hand.
UTG limps, MP limps, BTN calls, SB calls, i check BB with K5
Flop: KQQ
SB checks, i check, UTG bets £15, MP calls, BTN folds, SB folds and we xc

Before everyone says folds to the overbet and overcall both guys are fun players who clicks A LOT of buttons, hence why i chose the check flop line as i want them to fire away with a lot of crap they have.
The plan is to call one and depending on turn action such as sizing and card it'll be mainly to fold.

Turn: K
I check , UTG checks and MP checks

River: 4
I lead £55, both players call.
I show and UTG shows me Q9o (whoops) and MP snap mucks.
MP for sure never has a Q as he'll play it fairly face up by min raising otf so he musta hero called river with AT/AJ or something silly.

Not really been playing much liveaments as i have a normal sleeping pattern. Been seeing sunlight to keep me sane.

Best of luck in March at the tables.

I don't know what the effective stacks are, but I'm assuming we're not short stacked. I don't love the check there on the turn. I'm betting turn and river to get value from a Q and possibly a stubborn draw on the flop against fun guys. Another line I've played with is a make a smaller bet on the turn like I'm trying to represent the K and then bomb the river like I'm trying to get a Q to fold. Live poker is so much about the patterns, but those are 2 I'd consider in this situation. When we check the flop, I don't see why a Q would bet here.

Enjoy the sunlight, let me know if it's as bright as everyone says it is.

yeah, i was expecting him at the time to carry on betting a Q, he's made some interesting turn bets so i assumed he'd carry on in this spot.

Turn: 5
I check, MP checks behind.
River: Q
I check, MP bets £350, we snap xc
MP shows 69


HH2:
This is a fairly interesting one. Do we vbet or river no and if we do what size?

UTG opens to £20, i call UTG+1 with JJ, SB squeezes to £100, UTG folds i call.
Flop: AQQ
SB checks, I check behind.
Turn: J
SB leads £170, i call

Re: London Liveaments

What stakes are you playing where you open, get two callers and pot is £110? 2/5/10?

JJ hand I think we have to valuebet? I don't see him shutting down with AA to get you to bluff when he might perceive you have have a lot of worse flushes and full houses. I think in this spot villain should be continuing to be all his value hands so when he checks we can but a bet in ourselves? (Or is that what he wants us to think.....)

First instinct is bet and I'm sure I'd bet in game. Having looked at it a bit more, it's closer than I thought but still a bet. You're only really going to run into AA that traps and can get value from AxKs and random hero calls.

Yeppp, do you not think the tendency of live population bets XxKs otr?
Still think it's pretty close, fairly hard for him to have much worse.

HH1: Blockers are overrated!

UTG opens £15 and we defend BB with AJ
Flop: 9 A 8
UTG cbets £25, we xc
Turn: T
We check and UTG xb
River: 7
We lead £50 and UTG raises to £200

Super aids spot, QJ is out of range, so villain is repping Axcc and 8xcc.
But we got Jc in our so can flush combos can be discounted.
We call and get shown KQ

HH2: Blockers are not overrated!
Probs clicking far too many buttons in this hand.

UTG opens £15, We 3b UTG+1 to £55 with A K and UTG calls.
Flop: JTT
UTG checks, we cbet £45, he xc.
Turn: K
UTG checks and we xb
River: 9
UTG leads £60 and we raise to £320, UTG tannnnnnnnnnnnnk folds.

HH3: vs same guy from HH2
UTG opens £15, we 3b UTG+1 to £55 with AA and UTG calls.
Flop: Q97
UTG checks, we cbet £45, UTG xc.
Turn: T
UTG checks and xb
River: 7
UTG leads £110 and we snap call.
Shows T9

urh nice bluff. Don't know what he's trying to achieve with river sizing/lead. Have heart and xj.

Re: London Liveaments

Hand 1, I haven't played in this game so hard to have a more specific population read ok how it plays but this line doesn't feel bluffy to me. Not sure how deep you were either but I think I'd struggle to find a call here, even with the blockers.

Hand 2, I quite like your line here although I think it's quite high variance. I've only just woken up but interested in what he might have had. I don't know much and the field or player but is he ever folding something as strong as QQ here if he yanked that long?

Hand 3, lol live poker

Keep up the good work!

That JJ full hand, I agree with Lucas in-game I'd probably just have bet. With that said, I agree with your analysis that its probably a check.

I don't know the guy but IMO live players are super capable of trapping with a flopped/turned boat like KQ on KKQ, and considering the hands we're trying to get value from I think it is a check.

Hand 3 standard just misread his hand I'd say!

Looks like its going well up there, shame you missed the meal on Monday though : <

Re: London Liveaments

Better update this:

Spoiler:


March Cliffs:
- started off really bad
- ran really well in bham/notts
- really turned it around in the last week of march and got out of it for the month, ~6k in the last few days.
- Moved to online.

April
- Currently punting around on msnl online
- going okish, been swingy last few days for me and have not been running well but still up a decent amount.
- not sure when i'll make an appearance in live pokes again.

Even skipped the megastack series.

Currently enjoying this life of playing online, it's nice to have a normal sleeping pattern seeing some sun light. Generally feel so much more productive and healthier.
Lets see how long i get to keep this up for.

That said i don't know the direction of where this thread is heading if i'm not playing much live. I've played once ever since i came back to London and that was only to so that i could see a friend.

Went to the coffee festival on the weekend and it really opened up my eyes on how little i knew about coffee. (and i thought i knew a decent amount)
After the event i have been toying with the idea of working part time in a coffee shop as it's related to my own business idea in the future so i think it's may be a good time to learn and gain those skills.
Don't know if i said this before in the thread but i don't really see myself playing poker long term and i think it's time to start that exit plan.

Anyways, i hope all the live guys are well! I'll leave my man cave soon guys.

Online grind lifestyle def more chilled/healthier/balanced.

You looking to open a cafe? pm if so, my family have worked in this field since forever (bulk supply of green beans and roasted/roasting). Possibly opening cafe with family where I am in the future.
