Re: MicroFocus and MacroPatience - (NLHE cash games poker)

Tonight is the gambling night.

Pokerstars again does it with tempting and annoying promo. This week there is a Full Ring challenge about playin 2k hands on NL200. Already took a part in it in the past and grab some profit so... I can't let this opportunity pass by. Of course it is well out of my BRM. Good that I had a nice start so far in 2018 and despite bad EV booked some profit, so there is some room to play. That doesn't eliminate a big risk of solid bankroll demolition. Not a pro approach, but I'm superconfident now, that:
a) in case of bad run I can and will rebuild;
b) it is EV+ spot (high variance thou).

I love playing solid, professional approach poker. But I also like gambling. Tonight I give myself a permission to do so. Most likely it gonna hurt, but... It's my way on a high way.

So, yesterday I request to take down my limit restrictions. Only for this promo and maybe the aftermatch tilt I finish the promo (and day) and set the limits back on.

Not an ambitious plan for tonight, I know. Sorry (not really) for not being solid, instead going cheap and doing slightly spewy degeneration. Actually, it is really not that big a thing for me compared to some of my past rage-tilts.

Let's roll

Re: MicroFocus and MacroPatience - (NLHE cash games poker)

Fortunate for me, the gamble and run for promo went relatively smooth and painless. Whole 2k session was within comfort zone. There was a moment I had a nice profit, then lost favourite spots and finished with small profit and unfortunately minimum from the promo. Still a good result thou.

Due to PCA stream, this week I run on a big sleep deficit. Watching the live tournament poker is more like a entertainment than education for me, so it is kinda waste of time and focus but... i really love the game. Playing, talking, reading about it, watching it.... I hope soon I would be able to add: writing about it.

The whole week my poker education sucks, therefore I plan to do more Lab work during the weekend. Currently, as already mentioned, I'm analysing teunuss RIO videos. Great regular tables (sometimes ZOOM) action. Really like how he talks and explain game. Good for my skills at the tables, but good for mindset as well. Highly recommended.

Re: MicroFocus and MacroPatience - (NLHE cash games poker)

When I work, I'm thinking about poker.... (ssshhhh don't tell my boss about it)

When I play poker, I'm thinking about partying...

When I party, I'm thinking about sex....

When I'm having sex, I'm thinking about... well sex , but right after - about work.

Something is wrong. Looks like it is some kind of suboptimal phase shift between my thoughts and executed activity. How to fix it?

Spoiler:

Looks like I'm gonna have another "under-EV" month, although situation is not as bad as in December. Pokerstars definitely see that something is wrong about my run and deciced to give me "the chest" as a recompensate:
