Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

OP, idk if you are playing Poker for fun and not caring about the results or just trying to level us all with these ridic justifications/(potentially) faked HH's. But if I give you the benefit of the doubt in all cases and assume you are serious about Poker and about these hands, then you need to just stop it asap. You lost 50bi's in a week because of this.

I'm serious about poker. HH's aren't fake, and yeah, I was during a bad phase, playing like a monkey, but the KQ hand was fine, I was 2-tabling and tanked until the last second to make the call. I was in the top of my range, also people go nuts in 3-bet pots.

In single-raised pots people don't go nuts, but in 3-bet pots people go full potato a lot of the time, I'm a huge nit inside, fold a lot on these spots and I'm trying to force myself to make some hero calls, specially when I'm on the top of my range. I used to make huge folds, like fullhouses, even KK pre once vs the king of nits. But some guys in NL25 know this, so I can't fold like that anymore vs them.

My focus right now is not to payoff nits and bluffcatch the ones capable of bluffing(in the right spots).

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

Post some normal hands because I haven't seen one normally played hand yet. What are your stats as well? I'm presuming your flop cbet is like 70%? I just moved up to 25z and the games are ****ing crushable. That graph isn't pretty and you would have to be running bottom 5% to get a result like that when the games are so easy.

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

NL25 is crushable, but when you play like a monkey and turn yourself into a fish, it's impossible to even break-even there.

$380 bankroll, will try NL25 again, 3 BI shot today.

Will go back to the beginning of the thread: 15 BI shots, go pro or go home. Play well, don't tilt.
I think my fundamentals are ok when I apply them, my problem is when I slip in weird monkey-tilt territory.

Playing like a retard helped me like crazy, specially when running hot, robbing people and moving up with their money after they can adapt, but it isn't sustainable in the long term.

My graph proved that: even though I was crushing NL5/NL10/NL25(at the beginning of my time in that stake), when I moved to NL50 and had bad luck, my opponents had time to adapt, then my super crazy style turned out to not be profitable.

Then I had to go to NL25 and play like a nit, adapting to those guys who started calling overbets with A high, printed a ton of money vs them. Then tilt came with bad luck and gg, started playing terrible poker, even worse than that maniac style at the beginning.

I wasn't telling you guys in this thread about my strategy: I was abusing my HUD manipulation and trying to make the field play in some way vs me, then change my strategy into a totally inverse one, going from full bluffs into full value/merging. It came to the point that even merging, valuebetting middle pair was profitable vs those guys.

So why am I telling this to you guys? Because I won't try that anymore, it's such an unpredictable game which I started leveling myself into infinite and making it impossible to be consistent. Even though at some point I turned myself into probably a huge crusher of NL25(20bb/100+), this style of super adapting and playing hugely exploitative wouldn't work out in the long run.

Most guys will look at that graph and say that I was super lucky because of my all-in EV, but I'm pretty sure in non-all-in spots I got crushed pretty hard. It's easy to say that I'm a losing player because I lost money(well, I started with $50 and turned them into 580, so I rakeback grinded for a while). But the thing is: I wasn't the same player through all those hands, changed a lot, changed back, I played for some time as a 8/7 nit, for some time as a 18/16-20/18 TAG, 30/25-35/32 LAG, 40/35-70/65 maniac.

I'll focus on playing solid, real poker, not tilting, moving up, playing the best I can, not that super exploitative bull**** and mind games I was playing.

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

Good points of that run:
-Learned how to merge
-Learned a ton of spots to bluff
-Got better at hand reading
-Got better at knowing when to steal more/less
-Learned that my biggest weakness isn't strategy, but execution(tilt)

Bad points of that run:
-Less than $2/hour
-Super tired(played a lot of hours, more than 50k hands 2-tabling and 150k+ 4-tabling)
-Confidence is down
-Regs at NL25 are unpredictable, I can't understand how they will be playing vs me since some view me as a nit and some view me as a maniac, also some come with weirtd huge bluffs, thinking I'm always bluffing.


Even though I have less time, less bankroll, less confidence, I'll keep doing my best to beat the game. I don't go into stuff like this to end mediocre. In the worst case scenario, this time playing won't be wasted, after I take my break and get the government job I want(probably 2 years from now), I'll go back to poker and try to do well here again until I'm in the top.

As I told you guys, it's not about money for me, 100k/year is a joke, some peopke make 100k/year without even having to work. I would be better off studying investment(which I study for more than 12 years) if I came here for money. It's about being the best, to be the king of poker.

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

Nice fold on the river, you only beat a bluff when he shoves into 2 players like that. I guess you are capable of not playing like a tilted spazz-monkey.

BTN is a typical microstakes fish - can't fold an overpair and thinks everyone is bluffing with missed flush draws.

Thanks, man

doing my best, sadly I'm at $315, going back to NL16 again, but not giving up, focusing in doing my best and making as few mistakes as possiible.

Sometimes I feel I started folding too much, but I remembered the huge amounts of BIs I lost by calling people's sets with overpairs.

It's not that I can't fold, but I had an idea that people in 6-max bluffed like crazy, which isn't true, at least for the regs. Well, there are those aggro regs which should be called no matter what, but if a 1-2 AF reg raises you all-in OTR, he isn't bluffing.

I've folded even a set vs a single raise on a super dry board lol (full-ring skills, had 24 sets over sets in that month haha), guy was the king of nits, maybe it was wrong, but after getting coolered so much like that in 1 month, it's fine I guess.
