Btw do u have some tips where to start with crypto currency stuff? I bought some btc and eth but just because friend told me, but would like to learn more...
Thanks

PM if you want more info abt crypto stuff. I'm no expert by any means but I'm learning everyday and getting more knowledgeable at it.

Just chiming in here, I've been following crypto for a while now (held BTC since 2015, ETH since 2016.), and feel like I've learnt a bit in that stage. Think number one thing you have to be aware of is that recently we have been in massive bull market. This has lead to tons of confirmation bias, as basically randomly investing would have got you huge returns, it's easier for there to be random outlier returns convincing people they have investing strategies that 'beat' the market. So whenever you read advice or come up with strategy yourself, ask yourself why you're strategy is making beating the market. (understanding of how markets work is crucial here, even just reading efficient market hypothesis to put you on the most simplistic negative outlook as a basepoint is a good idea.)

I honestly think for vast majority of people best strategy is to develop a diversih portfolio with heavy exposure to btc for some lowish % of net worth and leave it in a secure location. Too much risk of diverting energy away from other profitable activities (read poker) and getting overwhelmed by noise otherwise. The crypto markets are young/ inefficient enough and protected from big money that it's probably possible for relative noobs to be +EV trading short term, but this will not be the case for long, and timing your exit is also a problem if you are going with a shorter term strategy.

Not a dig at OP at all here because I obv have no idea his trading strategy and what kind of data, algorithms etc his friends have access too. Just general advice for someone new trying to get involved here.

TLDR; Good opportunity to expose yourself to emerging potentially explosive assets, high variance, most alt-coins long term going to zero, trying to be too clever can easily result in owning yourself, technical analysis is primarily bull****.
Thanks for the kind words. I do not pool select although sometimes I must agree that the pool is rly grim, especially when comparing it to 200z.

And much appreciated the input in regards to crypto. I did a lot of mistakes while starting up and the advice you listed is v helpful.

Good luck in your coaching endeavor.

Thanks a lot Oro! Looking fwd to see you soon at 500z

As for poker, it's a slow start to the month with me moving and getting myself set up here. Been also hanging out a lot w friends that live here that I don't get to see often so that's been taking up some time.

Other than that, gym and tennis mostly. Been studying a lot too recently w PIO and Snowie. So there's that.


Probably not the most GTO of hands but who cares. If it can get people to call me more, why not...

    And here's a picture of me and my boys at our friend's wedding we had in August.



    Good times.

    Aight, so plan for rest of the month is just to grind like crazy. Haven't dabbled into 1k yet as I feel like I'm still making way too many mistakes at 500z. Like everyday, I realize there is so much that I can improve and such. So will try tweak my game a bit more before shooting 1k again. Also, I get to go see the habs next Saturday so that's pretty sweet.

    So, October didn't go too well to say the least...



    Obv jinxed myself after posting a decent looking yearly 500z graph the month before... sigh

    Really disappointing. First losing month since last December where I had lost 40+ buy-ins at 200z (that was ****ing unreal). Hmm so yeah, Obv not too happy about it. Did play some 1kz and 2kz when it ran but no heat on the very small sample.

    Also in October, I did play a higher style of variance of play, which can be borderline spewy I think sometimes. Not giving up on pots much and wanting to win every hand basically.

    So yeah, I'll need to correct this in November, Ohh well...

    Otherwise, I'll be playing 2 events in the upcoming WPT in Montreal next week; the 6max and the Main. So if anybody wants to meet up, lmk.

    As for crypto, the alt market is crumbling atm which makes it pretty good to invest in it.

    I've been looking mainly at Kyber, Everex, Neo, Ark, OMG, Zencash and Lumens. Will be looking to dump some alt coins too that have been under performing around mid-November. Have a lot of IOTA too, but that's mainly for long term hold.

    This sums it up basically. I hope November is kinder to me than October was. Will still continue working hard on improving my game.

    RIP October

    Glgl in November

    Cheers,

    I hope so. Following your thread as well. Too bad you're gone to the reg tables, we never got to play much vs each other.

    Then again, I think you're running at like 19bb/100 over there or smthg lol?! Insane

    Thanks for the feedback boss, always fun to battle against at the tables

    Again, not looking at results this month while playing. Think it's going okay for now, but could be wrong. Stacks are swinging a lot since I'm playing deep so it's always hard to tell at the end of the day imo.

    Did some spew here and there but rest seems ok.

    Will prolly watch the UFC tomorrow night. Never watched it before and nowhere close to a fan, but all my friends are watching so wygd?

    Glgl,

    How did you build them up that long? I cannot even finish a session without the alert icon pissing me off and forcing me to open and collect my 5 stars coin rakeback

    sidenote if you want that youtube moneyZ make a chest opening vid and maybe pokerstars will hire you

    Hey, taking time off from my sesh to open these annoys me way too much. That's why I just stack them forever.

    Lolly, I thought abt recording it but meh... Idk, it's attention whoreish a bit and like, I kind of have to feel excited during the whole process which turns me off lol.

    However, being a youtube celebrity seems kind of cool/okay. Maybe when I'm washed up, I'll try it. Only legit players I think that have decent youtube channels are ShowofForce and SinKarma.

    More of "can't be bothered" than "discipline" tbh but hey, will take the compliment .

    Results for this month



    Graph (All and only 500z)



    So yeah, rly ridic month to say the least; my biggest ever both in terms of EV and $ wise. Nice to bounce back after such a disappointing October.

    Irl stuff, played two events at the WPT series in Montreal that was held early November. God I hate live poker :/

    The 6max event was fine even though I didn't cash, but the Main was total bs. Lasted about ~2 hours in what was a 6 day event lol. Ohh well. However playing in that series was super chill because I got to hang out w a lot of my poker friends and online guys that I had never met. Shout out to no tank you?, ACNRULES, hopezACE, dujo123, NY17PATS14; was nice hanging out w all of you guys.

    And big ty to my PLO friend Galen and to one of my best online friends ggbruce for staking me for the Main Event.

    Anyhow, did gain some valuable experience and will be looking to play some more live events in order to get used to it for upcoming Summer in Vegas.

    Also looking to move somewhere else for mid January. Have some friends in Thailand atm, so might go there, or maybe South America. Need to make sure I buy my ticket soon-ish so that I don't convince myself in staying through the harsh Canadian winter.

    Hmm so yeah, will spend holidays here w family which will be super fun. I'm looking fwd at playing hockey outside and having board game nights w friends . Been blasting some Christmas music non stop while on the grind for the past 2 weeks or so to get in the mood

    Ohh and I forgot to add; me and my buddies, we've been playing this new board game, "Skyfall".

    https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/166384/spyfall

    Awesome game, requires a skill set that once again, kind of favors poker players. Like you need to balance your demeanor and actions in order to be able to pull off some wins when you're the spy. Super sick game. Shout out to bigje9999 and frankthetank99 whith whom I've been clashing against at "Spyfall"!

    On a more serious note, I wanted to mention that I've been listening to audio books about self improvement and stuff like that while at the gym, alongside some poker podcasts.

    One of them was absolutely mind blowing and might even say, life changing.

    It's this one

    I won't go into too many details, but basically, it shows you how you can live and see life in a different way in order to achieve your goals and dreams and that anything, if you want it, is achievable.

    Crypto wise, bought a bunch of ZenCash and Civic early November and sold it back like a week ago before the big btc drop.

    And lastly, shout out to my poker buddies theproksa, clanty and bonk30 with whom I study every now and then. Mad props

    Aside from the Holiday songs, I've also been grinding to this on repeat



    And this



    Aight, let's end this year on a good note.

    Cheers,
