Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

H1 looks waay too thin otr. I would probably start checking flop or turn too, as this board is pretty good for IP i think. i would check the turn mostly. otr you have a whole bunch of better hands to vbet, and villain has a lot of hands beating you as well. targeting the QJs/T9s/QTs is bad imo, because he has so many better hands like AQ/KJ/KT/KQ etc. I would def check and probably fold tbh, but I guess you can find an argument for calling with no Ad, villain dependent.

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

Bankroll is at $1900

Today I coolered so many people that I started tilting, was feeling really bad knowing I had the best hand and that the guy was almost never bluffing and I was going to raise-jam the river. It's really weird when I win and get lucky in poker, I feel somewhat empty. I've been a breakeven player for so much in this game that I'm used to watching myself fail. When I'm losing also I get super pumped up for the next round and to do my best and beat the games. In this month I won't put work outside of the tables because my focus is on volume, but next month I'll do my best to work and improve my game, will try to stay humble and do my best. Will take a shot at 100z during the weekend if I reach a $2k bankroll. Probably somewhere around a 3-4 BI shot.

The more I play this game, more I think about how it impacts my life, and how poker actually is a great opportunity to improve ourselves in areas we are weak. When we come to this world, we get here with tons of weaknesses, problems and tendencies we had from our lives, like being overconfident, underconfident, with lack of discipline or with excess of it. Basically these traits are those that make ourselves play poorly in many situations, like when an overconfident person is always bluffing, someone with low confidence is a weaktight player, very disciplined players usually lack creativity and are super straightforward and players with lack of discipline suffer a ton from FPS and always try to play the hand as fancy as they can even when they lose EV by doing that.

A good poker player has to overcome those weaknesses in order to play well, and I've seen that by playing poker, I turned out to be a way more disciplined person(which was my biggest leak). Having the discipline for making those tight hero folds OTR vs a nit is the same thing as going to the gym when you're tired. I wasn't making exercises for around 4-5 years and in the last 3-4 months I've been going to the gym with a medium-high frequency(3-4 times/week). This is such a good game and I'm enjoying it even more the more I play. I think this volume I'm playing is good enough to stay sharp, get some good sample size in a reasonable time frame without any kind of burnout/losing the magic of the game. I see myself playing in this rhythm every month for the next 10 years.

Some hands from today

H1: vs the best reg of 50z(imo). Good fold OTR? I've been super stationy vs him on most streets, but I'm pretty sure he still bluffs a ton vs me. My idea for folding this hand is that all gutshots got there OTR and that he is checking most of his range OTF, specially sets. I think he raises most of his sets OTF, but he could get some to the turn, also he is x/c 22 OTF. Villain knows how to valuebet thin, so he should have Q2 in his jamming range OTR.

H2: vs same guy, happened some minutes after H1, good fold? My idea is that people almost never fold river when they called turn, so he shouldn't bluff a ton there, right? Also most of his draws got there OTT.
