The action went bet, raise and reraise from SB. 95% of players would jam those hands not 3bet which is the typical nutted post flop tell. Your other post I agree with. Reg battling mentality at these low stakes is pretty stupid and typical bad reg play. The smart regs just pick off the retards like that.

H4 - Think xjamming river is better than xc with this hand anyway
How did I miss this gold. You expect villian to fold his last 32bb to a xj? Lolz. If you want to bluff lead jam , you can't bluff him once he's bombed river.

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

Today I thought a little about my mindset and found some theories about why I'm always losing a ton after I win a bunch of money in 50z.

It could be variance, but it happened so many times with such a high consistency: every time I reach the 1200-1400+ bankroll line I almost instantly lose it back. For some reason I managed to grind it back from 700-800 4 times in my 85k hand sample. I think when I'm super down, risking to move back to NL16, I play way better and take it really serious, not underestimating anyone and making really tight folds when needed.

When I'm winning, I'm usually overconfident, thinking I could godmode anyone and make really bad calls like on H4. In the session I played, H4 happened almost right after h5, H5 is a really good call and H4 is good vs some players but I didn't have enough sample to make good assumptions, vs the overall NL50z pool, river bit bets(specially by fish) = very strong hands. I think I made that good hero call on h4 and got overconfident and then made that bad call.

Recently I've been able to deal very well with losing tilt, almost anyone with my poker experience that faced the amount of bull**** I've faced would go on a huge monkey tilt and spewing really hard, but I managed to suck it up and play it fine, even risking my bankroll several times. I think most of my efforts now relating to mental game should be to control winner's tilt, I should try to avoid being overconfident and to think I could godmode anyone. Some confidence is really good, but it can be really dangerous, I need to be more humble and cautious when I start winning.

When thinking about this, I remembered from a ton of things that happened in my life when I was younger that looked like "winner's tilt". On the second year of high school, when I was 16, I made the test to enter the universities, even if I passed I couldn't enter, it was just for training. The thing is that I scored insanely high for someone in the second year of high school(also my school was one of the best of the country), way better than good students in the last year(3rd). I scored way higher than anyone in the school in the second year, even a friend of mine that was the second in class scored below me(he scored 54 out of 90 and I did 60 out of 90, the average of the class was like 30 lol). Btw, the first of the class didn't make the test, I was in the middle, like with a 70%-80% grade.

So with that sick confidence boost, I probably didn't work hard enough and in the next year, I failed the test, got the same score of the second year. Also since I was a kid I didn't like to find coins/money in the street, I threw them away, I think I didn't like to "get lucky" or something. Also I used to destroy some toys that people gave to me for my birthday that I thought weren't very cool(but thinking a little about it, even though they weren't the funniest ones, they were fine and decent).

Will focus on playing my best and to not be overconfident. Thought a little about skipping magic on friday to grind, but I have so much fun in there with my friends that I think it's better than just being a degen and playing poker. Also in my life right now I don't have much time for social interaction, so it's good for my health to keep going there.
