Are you flying into the UK?

Unfortunately most of my experience of UK outdoors is pretty far from London. Snowdownia and the Lake District are both awesome spots too, but Scotland definitely trumps all. Train to Edinburgh is 4 hours too, so probably actually closer than those two, but still a treck from London.

Incredible pics. Seems like so far youíre doing a pretty good job of appreciating why people find it so hard to leave Scotland.
Haha yeah that's a fair point. Yeah absolutely loving it so far, Edinburgh reminds me a lot of Vancouver in terms of all the benefits of a city, with all the easy access to the outdoors.

Nah, we're all English. I'd be coming from either the Midlands or London and the others would all be coming from London. I've hiked in both Barmouth area and the lake district before but I don't recall either being as beautiful as Scotland appears to be judging from those pictures.

It's possible that if we're already travelling 3 hours we might as well bite the bullet and just go to Scotland instead.

Yeah highlands is different gravy, just a shame it's so far.

About 2.5 hour drive from Edinburgh to Glencoe, 4.5 hour from Edinburgh to Skye. Make sure you bring midge spray

Re: Giving Something Back; December Charity Challenge with you-mad-br0 #2

Popped off a bit this month:





Ran fairly insanely this month, just coolering people everywhere, variance really is still sick that this can happen after basically breaking even for 100k hands.

I'm still working to improve every day though, probably discussing 5 hands min per day in the bitb chat and then doing a lot of study calls too with top regs.

Most important things in these stretches I think is too stay humble and grounded, recognise that I'm running like a god, and keep working on mental game/ technical game so I keep improving my base w/r so that these pop off stretches become more likely and major downswings become less likely.

Gl all in June.

Sick graph, what was your std dev, 10? very wp, glad youre shifting from zoom to reg tables, hope more top regs decide to do so.

haha yeah I did avoid the swings this month, think biggest was like 10bi only.

Thanks for the compliment, but mostly avoiding zoom in bad pools because I don't think I am a top reg, some smart guys in 200z now and my long term winrate is not crushing enough to be seriously considering myself one of the best (4.9evbb/100 over 450k hands, and that's including the recent heat)

Thanks, one of the great things with working at bitB is that through all the students you see so many random upswings and downswings that it really makes it crystal clear how crazy variance is.

Before I was much more liable to live my own hype when I was running hot, and lose much more belief when I was running badly. Impossible to completely avoid but I would like to think I've improved quite a lot lately at it, having given it a lot of thought and made a couple of videos on the subject. This game really will kill you if you ride the highs and live the lows too much - but we'll see how much I can heed my own advice when I start running bad again.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So I lied in the last update and found time to play a few more hands, think that makes it the best month I've had in terms of BIs for sure. And got dealt the elusive 2019 10evbb month:

Inevitable curse incoming but some nuclear heat over my last 100k hands on Stars
since I got back from Skye:



Hopefully it continues, had been trying to play a lot more 400 but not sure what I will do now it's all becoming 500nl. Will see how much the boys want the tables I guess.

Re: Giving Something Back; December Charity Challenge with you-mad-br0 #2

Hi guys - myself, Darrel (fourSixFour) and Donald recorded a podcast today across a wide range of topics, including dealing with variance, game selection, and being a poker professional in 2019 generally.



Would be interested to hear any feedback, as we'll definitely do more in the future if this is popular. All three of us have had 40bi downswings this year, with overall year w/rs at 4bb+, so it's a stuff we've been discussing a lot recently.

Really enjoying it, especially with how casual it is.

Only criticism would be mic quality.

Love Darrell's comment saying that he'd run from Negreanu to save an annoying convo

Theyve removed 400/600nl and replaced it with 500 at reg tables. So 200 -> 500 -> 1k now

Cheers, yeah I spent 15 mins searching for my headphones before and forgot to plug my good mic in - noted for future though, thanks.

Yeah they are both 500nl now, as psek said.

Re: Giving Something Back; December Charity Challenge with you-mad-br0 #2

Going to be streaming some of the RIO 101 week on the new bitB twitch channel here:

https://www.twitch.tv/bitbcash

Will post when streaming, probably 4pm London - 6/7pm.

Would advise any micro stakes guys to check this out, 100% rakeback is huuuuge if you pay 8bb/100 in rake, and I've had great fun and great results on RIO so far.
