After looking at the database, I found out that I lost a lot by playing deep, so by playing with 100bbs I think I can win, if I had played only with 100-150bbs, my graph would look like this(+$600 rakeback)



also maybe it's possible to have a better winrate at NL100 than on NL50 because of the dramatic reduce in rakeback.

and also, even if I can't beat NL50 neither NL100, I'll take shots in those stakes.

I'll have to figure it out.

yeah, getting super lucky, so lucky that I'm losing with KK on NL50
5x KK x AA in 20k hands, + a lot of sets, people flopping flushes OTF

Overall lucky bell is unlucky for sets, flushes and straights.
what can I do if Villain flops a set in a 3-bet pot? If when I'm barrelling the turn and OTR villains completes his flush while we're both commited?

Luckly I'm doing well on EV, but saying that I'm a 9bb/100 loser and that it's normal to be losing with KK is retarded

KK on NL50



month so far

thanks

I'll stick to NL25 for a while, try to grind it out to $2k, losing $700 in a day was really tough. Also I saw that my game had a lot of flaws, specially vs NL50 regs.

Most nl25 regs are bad and keep calling you down with crap, while on NL50, I can't expect to triple barrel TPTK and get calls from worse vs a good reg

I think I'll make sure my game is fine before I move up, of course I'll still play 4-tables during the "dark hour" of NL25, but will have some sessions where I'll think more and try to squeeze the maximum value off each hand.

if I'm fine with my game by the time I reach 2k dollars, then I'll open 2-tables at NL100 and play with the assistance of my apprentice. I taught him how to play poker, he is really good, although he stopped playing(he was a NL25/NL50 reg when he stopped). But I think it's good to have someone with you to help with reasoning, feel more confident, don't tilt.

My strategy when I moved up was to play as crazy as I could, by distorting people's HUD, showing myself as a 40/30/20 donk, but when I started playing NL25/NL50 people started calling me down a lot. Recently I made a huge calldown vs someone like that, I saw why it's bad to do it vs better players.

maybe playing tighter is better, right? So I can find more info about villains?
what should I do when I move to higher stakes and have no info on players?

what really crippled mt was the amount of regfish that wouldn't fold on these stakes, making my strategy really bad. Also by having 0 hands on people, I ended up bluffing fish without knowing it.

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

Chelt is probably just making assumptions about you as a player from the hands you upload (Some of em are played a bit weirdly).

I don't really know why your losing deep, probably because you're getting punished for overbluffing. Deep is super super profitable at 25z and 50z alot of the regs are crap at it and the fish almost want to give you their money with crappy hands.

Your winrate would be so much higher if you didn't bluff so much tho.

Yeah, I stopped bluffing for a while, throwing some bluffs from time to time vs regs

And yeah, deep stack poker is awesome vs fish and bad regs, but I stopped because I was tilting a lot, losing stacks like crazy. Also I think I'm a fish compared to the better regs.
On top of that, it reduces variance, which is good.

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

I'm referring to hands you've posted such as ripping 73o pre. If you have 73o in any preflop bluffing range you will get annihilated at 50 and above which is what's happening, I'm not bitter just trying to explain why you aren't beating the game as you play higher. Fwiw I doubt you'll do better at 100 than 50 and probably worse as people get stats faster and adjust more.

I was tilted during the 73o hand, but sometimes it's good to 3-bet with anything vs an opponent who is opening 60% from the btn and folding 80%, and in a huge pool like NL25, you're not likely to see him again in the nest 20 mins in the same spot, so it's fine to rob him some cents from time to time.
