Lol, tatsumaki was cbet and min 3-bet the flop always as a bluff in 3bp because I was overbluffing with my cbets and villains saw that and went for the overbluff raise too.

Whale move by me for sure, I was so retarded haha.

I remember when I read let there be range and the first topic was it explaining that play "what if villain gets smart and 3-bet us light otf?" Thought I was such a genius after reading that haha.

There was a hand that I cold 5-bet light at a deep nl10 table too haha. I uses to play tilted for 10h a day in those times lol

To me you should get in a decent study group and completely open yourself up to feedback. Read up on some Carol Dweck/watch some of her YouTube vids. You've got the passion for the game but you don't know how to learn.

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

I think he's already said he's been in a study group and done coaching. If none of those worked, it's unlikely anything will. Like someone else said, he's too stuck in his ways after 7+ years playing the game. He believes what he does is correct and will write pages of text to try to justify it.

It's a shame to see, because in poker, you really have to be self-critical and open to new ideas/approaches in order to improve. He seems unable to do that.

Why shouldn't a player "defend [their] own plays"? That is how you learn in a public setting.

Blame volum and rake. All of us has those problema you blame for being stuck.

You are very arrogant and tilting. USE your 2+2 volum around the tables instead of being a pussy and hide behind excuses
This guy is so clueless, it's not even funny anymore.

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

You guys talk like my game is completely off and that I need to change everything about it, I do a lot of things that are good and improved a lot last year/this year so far.

Obviously if you look at my $ graph it's very ugly



If you look it in BBs it isn't as ugly(still not great though)



Now 50z since september 2017



And last 100kish hands at 50z



It's obvious that I need to study and keep improving, learning new things, but the changes I need to do don't need to be that drastic as you guys say. I also listen to a lot of advice here(I'm betting more imbalanced vs passive players with value for a bigger sizing again) and started making more calls, making less explo folds.

The thing is that you guys get tilted when I don't agree with something and forget the times I take advice, also I'll always make arguments of what I think is right until proved otherwise, that's how argumentation works and how discussion can lead to improvements/learning.

Contemplate on the words "accumulative mistake".
You misplay one street, and then continue playing badly on 2 others. If you made the "whatever tight fold" and lost -9$, it's so much better than -60$.
I think you can get away with more stuff at 50z but not anymore at 100z. 50z could also be where your comfort zone is. Always tempting to play fancier when playing higher.

Yeah, I have to say that I didn't play my best at 100z, people in there are better but not that much better. After getting owned so much at 100z I don't know what to do, I'm thinking about increasing to $500 every shot I take at 100z until eventually I could just skip it if I didn't win in there.

You multiply BB/100 for 2 to get to bb/100, not sure why would you think I would post in BB/100 when I play NLHE and it's 2019 lol

My volume is very low, I play 400hands/hour and on average 2.5h/day this year so far.

Btw, decided to play 100z, was feeling confident, this was the second hand haha. Was like "jesus, impossible for me to beat this game, so retarded" OTT, then came the river haha vaaaamo!

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

Roll is at $4.5k! Had a very good day, sad that I had like 15 breaks because of lag and decided to quit when it became terrible. Brazilian internet is so bad, could easily have played 3k hands today. Will take the last hours of the day to study for the government job.



Month so far



Some hands

H1: vs reg, should make it bigger pre, still a bit lost with sizings while changing from 50z/100z. Turn is a check in pio(and flop too I think), but since 100z people are more on the spazzier side I prefer going more aggro with my value, they love defending those gutshots IP and bluffing when checked to. OTR I block his calling range and if I check I still make the same vs his sets, so obvious check by me. Take that!

BTN: 91.38 BB
Hero (SB): 102 BB
BB: 80.08 BB
UTG: 243.16 BB
MP: 106.27 BB
CO: 139.92 BB

Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has Q Q

UTG raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 11 BB, fold, UTG calls 8 BB

Flop: (23 BB, 2 players) Q 5 T
Hero bets 11.36 BB, UTG calls 11.36 BB

Turn: (45.72 BB, 2 players) 2
Hero bets 22.58 BB, UTG calls 22.58 BB

River: (90.88 BB, 2 players) 8
Hero checks, UTG bets 88.38 BB, Hero calls 57.06 BB and is all-in

Spoiler:


H2: vs reg, these guys hate so much to fold, no wonder why nits still exist at 100z, you get so much value by just playing tight and stacking these regs that play like whales out of nowhere if they think you're bluffing a bit more than you should

Spoiler:



I feel like playing 100z from now on unless my roll drops back to $4k (weekends only and if I'm in a good mental state)

Do you consider yourself a poker pro? Do you work or study on the side? I know married people with FT jobs who play more volume than you...

Also your graph does say BB/100 lol. Considering your insanely low volume I don't think your graph is impressive at all tbh. You are making 4cents a hand so ~$16/hr before RB...$40 a day is nothing. I had a roommate with a $20 hourly on nl50 on ignition back in like 2014 (and no games were not particularly tougher then or anything).

I play poker as a hobby and I know my results are bad, I posted those graphs just to show I'm beating the games and that people are overeacting when they say everything I do is completely wrong and should change the way I play a lot because it's bad.

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

I'm going to be honest with you Rapid that's ridiculously low volume for nearly a year and a half of play. I don't think anyone questions your ability to beat 50z. You've shown a decent winning sample repeatedly. But since you barely put in volume, youve made what, 5K over the past two years? What else do you do in your spare time?

I study to pass a test for a government job here in brazil to become a taxman, I study around 4-6h/day, I was doing 8h days in 2017, but subjects are very boring, so couldn't keep that volume.

Sure that it's small money, but I have fun playing/studying poker, love the game. I tried 4-tabling and playing big sessions, but after I play a lot of hands in a day I just can't think anymore and become a zombie. Also there are internet problems and I go to the gym a lot.

Considering how much poker you've played and how much you study you shouldn't make these mistakes and should be beating the games for more is what me and everyone else is saying. I don't think anyone thinks you're a losing player.

It's easy to say "just play solid, make no mistakes", in poker you can easily cost yourself a 4h session in less than 5s by making a stupid play. I try to not butcher hands, but it's hard, specially after I started making more aggressive exploits this year.

When has he ever said that he's a pro/crusher/volume grinder? He's always stated that this is a hobby. Get over yourselves.

Also lol at thinking anyones graph would be in the old BB/100 and then thinking that you divide it by 2 if it was.

You idiot, I know he's not a "crusher". But with the amount of time he spends learning the game/playing/writing strat I think this more than a simple hobby. Name me a hobby you spend ~4 hours a day doing.

And @rapid you've been studying for that test since you started this log. Just pass the ****ing thing.
