Yeah, I was kinda silly for being too conservative about playing 100z again, it's probably my 15th shot(when I moved to 200z just skipped 100z with some few sick sessions that went well). But I have almost a 5bb/100 winrate at 50z over 310k hands, there's no way I'm losing at 100z in the long run.

The thing is that when you get completely destroyed by variance it creates like an invisible wall in our minds, it's so hard to break it. I kept saying 200z was easier than 100z but the most atrocious plays I've seen in poker happened in there, while at 200z you don't see that many bizarre plays, so yeah, it's probably just variance.

Oh, so you defend rapid first, then you go ahead and troll him anyways. You're an odd one, sir. And when I say odd I mean slightly retarded.

i wouldn't really call it a troll lol. if it was it was pretty lighthearted. i was just joking that he's too conservative with his shot taking.

anyway, I can't call out complete douchebags and *******s who are ool without giving up the right to post anything in jest?

I agree, the thing about moving up stakes is it's easy to level yourself and make more mistakes than usual. so it's easy to go from a 3bb/100 winner at 100z to b/e because you aren't playing A game. I've definitely struggled with this, even being properly rolled doesn't prevent it for me. I just try to remind myself throughout the session, "this is the same game, these guys aren't that much better, I just gotta play my game and the adjustments will come naturally, don't force anything"

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

Don't think I've ever commented on your hands but the overall thought is...stop being an idiot and repeating the same mistakes, Your bluffing is very poorly timed mate, If you can't do something properly don't do it at all because all you're doing is destroying your winnings from other spots. At some point you got to honestly assess yourself and say ''Henrique we're ****ing hopeless in X area'' but we're still managing to win $...now I wonder if I improved at X area how much more $ I could make go from there gl. Don't give me some long response just read over this until it sinks in will serve you better than justifying.

H2. 4bet pre if hes so wide. Playing 7s oop vs a whale is not plus ev especially when it involves leveling yourself to calling off like that. Your flat pre was weak and pathetic. Deservedly stacked.

hahaha I always wondered what the whales that 4bet low pp were thinking. here it is.

i love that every bad player's solution to getting stacked is, "stop playing postflop man, just make a decision pre about whether your hand is good"

Its a fine play vs aggro opponents, unless your a sad nit like yourself. Considering the lul post flop skills you have exhibited I would suggest it for you especially.

As crazy as it sounds, yes. With that wide range and 0 discipline he will overbluff. I obv won't be right always in my calldowns, but vs people that overbluff gotta overdefend.
