Thanks man. Yeah seems reasonable, like i said just chucked a figure out there that was 500g a week. Ill have to stop the bulk if i get too fat. As for sleep and form, well im probably ****ed XD

Re: ScottyCorbett: 2019 500z Grind and Beyond

7th Jan --> 14th Jan

Poker Study
Exceeded goal this week which is sweet. Lots of focus on on blind vs blind play. Playing 500z pool often plays 3 handed and this spot comes up a TONNE. Feeling way more confident here and next weeks aim is to focus more on bb response bvb.

Meditation
Only meditated twice this week which is pathetically 1 more than last week.. so.. progress? Really enjoyed meditating this week however. It seems that I keep letting the days slip away by sleeping in and it leaves me at 11pm @ night with my dick in my hand not wanting to go to bed to late to **** up the next morning etc etc. Basically bad time management so next week need to work on this.

Mobility
Did a few mobility sessions this week but was heaps sick thurs-sun so died off towards the end of the week. Still can't even body weight squat without my back rounding and falling over smh. Will get there eventually.

Weight
96.2kg --> 95kg. Lost weight this week like I said because I was sick. Could barely reach 2500calories these days and didnt gym at all. Feeling better now so gym volume and diet should be on point.

Poker Earnings
Played roughly 16k hands with net loss of $-1978.88. Leaving us @ $2,256 heading into week 3 of 2019. Got mauled at 500nl reg tables this week. Had really poor distribution all week so not much to be said here. CRUSHED 200z this week though. After studying so much 200z population stuff my game is feeling insanely comfortable here. Running @ 6.18bb/100 last 100k hands.

Week Recap
Sickness caused me to miss volume on some of my lifestyle goals however managed to study well, play adequate poker volume and felt like i played very well despite the run bad.







Some Hands

H1)



Assume this is almost a pure call on turn at equilibrium. My assumption of 500nl pool is that this turn is overbluffed by oop and overfolded vs jam so I think that that this improves this hands EV as a jam over a call. Although both options are completely fine and both wont differ massively in EV. Fwiw unknown reg max time bank called this off lol.

H2)



Really interesting spot. Call pre is marginal in these positions usually favouring heavy 4bet or fold strat with few calls. Flop is pretty standard on first glance. Given villains 1/2 pot size on flop he isn't likely to ever have Jx in range so I think we have a very clear lead for a small size. River changes nothing and i think we have another clear value bet for a small size. As for bluffs looking at some A10s & AKo. So after this hand I tried to pio this spot and the tree was extremely hard to gain anything from as IP should be checking range here with the ranges I inputted. So i tried node locking IP to bet all sets and some other bluff combos and the response was for oop to just over fold like ****ing crazy given how strong IP range is now. So my combo wouldnt even be a float that often which was odd. So was difficult to see turn and river strat to see what im leading and for what sizings. As played i think intuitvely this line makes alot of sense from my end. When I get shoved on river obviously in a disgusting spot as I dont think he jams AA or KK thin for value. That being said im losing to so few combos + thought it would be unlikely top set is getting bet on the flop here. Tough to fold but also tough to see him coming up with enough bluffs given a line his probably not use to facing to often. *Shrugs*

H3)



Nothing special here. Just wanted to show me punishing Brokenstars for being a drunk spaz on stream. Bout time I win a pot against him, guy runs so ****ing pure XD

H4)



Obviously very standard line untill we get 3bet jammed on river. After it checks through flop I think its super unlikely villain has 33, 23, 88 and 44. Usually the former are 100% bets on flop for value and protection. Given these assumptions I think I have to stack off on river. The paradox here is that I dont think he has any bluffs but also doesnt have any value. So maybe he has pocket jokers and I just call the river? sound logic?

H5)



So being roughly 150bb effective threw me off a little bit here postflop. Generally I would be check shoving this combo almost 100% freq on flop at 100bb effective vs a 1/3. However, villain choose a 1/4 sizing (which is fine), leaving my shove to appear massive over his bet. So I end up flatting and jamming turn to deny equity from his range (villain folded AK with Kc). I pio'd the spot afterwards and basically it jams 100% at 100bb effective but still raises this hand on the flop just for a smaller size then jams most turns.

H6)



Preflop and flop are both v stnd. Turn is really interesting. Obviously quite a dynamic turn for both players. I ran multiple sims of this spot with different ranges for me as the OOP player. Basically, our ability to double barrel here depends on how condensed our range is pre. I was also under the assumption that when we bet its generally for a small size looking to 3 street game in these positions in a 4BP. This exact texture was just looking to jam turn to avoid EXACTLY THIS ****ING RIVER oh well win some lose some

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hope you guys enjoy the post! gl again next week for those grinding

Curious re this mobility stuff, what exercises are you doing? Is this for an injury or just general wellness?

Injury prevention and so I can actually perform the compound lifts safely as I progressively overload. Have terrible ankle mobility so for this im trying to increase ankle dorsiflexion by doing weighted ankle flexion w/ resistance bands & stretching gastroc & soleus. Have pretty pronounces ant. pelvic tilt so doing glute bridges and stretching hip flexors and lower back. Then fixing rounded shoulders by stretching pecs and strengthening rhomboids and mid back etc etc.

Good stuff mate, you seem to really know your ****! I have horrendous scar tissue on my ankles from my stint playing volleyball internationally as well as 15 years of basketball before that. So ankle mobility stuff I'm looking to do lots of too. At the moment I'm just really stretching out calves and tibialis anterior but I'm thinking of chucking some bosu ball/wobble board work too? I think increasing your "knee to wall" by stretching Achilles is a big help too.

The posture stuff for APT and scap winging is really important too so it's awesome to see you're doing that stuff, definitely have sounds like you're going to build a solid foundation for some serious lifting.

The other thing I'm doing ATM is foam rolling quads and glutes like crazy. Probably 30-40 mins a day. Its hell, especially with DOMS but makes a world of difference in terms of overall mobility and injury prevention.

Keep us posted with how you progress on all these! Glgl

In alot of spots this occurs but overall OOP and SPR isnt the determining factor of strat. With the narrow ranges I simmed here 1/3 turn is optimal (didnt sim for the 1/4 I bet which may be prefered), although nodelocking to 2 street game is fine. Can see turn strat on a multitude of turns here and as a whole most turns we want to be 3 street gaming it to really pressure edge of range.

Yeah did 3 years of musculoskeletal & clinical anatomy and physiology.
Yeah so the knee to wall exercise is basically my indicator of ankle flexibility improvement. I need to buy a really good chair for this year because all mobility work is probably ****ed from the amount of time I sit in **** posture. Agreed, foam rolling is hell XD

Re: ScottyCorbett: 2019 500z Grind and Beyond

14th Jan --> 27th Jan

Poker Study
Only did 1 session this week focusing more on BB defense vs SB in SRP. Useful session but failed to do a follow up session on wednesday.

Meditation
Meditated once. Really not forming a good routine with this one. Dont think its anything to do with the difficulty of meditating but my severe lack of time management skill :l

Mobility
Few session completed this week. Feel very small mobility gains but nowhere near enough to squat unassisted. Small progress.

Weight
95 --> 96.3 (weighed myself at night after a meal so probably a little bit less than this at current).

Poker Earnings
Amazing week poker wise, definitely my best week ever this far. Had great distribution at both 500z and 200z and also ran above ev which was nice. Still punished this week at reg tables. Had the infamous Kiebhoy over to grind this week which was fun and let me get a tonne of volume in. Total 19k hands with net profit of $11,320.49 putting us at $13,576.56 heading into the last week of January.

Week Recap
Best week of poker results to date. Poor consistency with training and eating this week. This cold has stuck with me for a few weeks now and im beginning to think it was a sinus infection given the symptoms but slowly on the mend. Mobility and sickness really feeling like its holding me back making serious progress in the gym especially in a few vital lifts (squats and deadlift) which is tilting. Just gonna have to mix in some lame accessories for legs for now.







Some Hands

H1) BIGGEST POT TO DATE



Pool was playing short handed for a while and had a read on a few of the guys playing deeper who were spazzing out showing any 2 in alot of weird spots. Obviously unccomfortable to face a flop and turn lead but pretty standard to call and get to the river. The shove is disgusting but villain is essentially polarized to a flush or nothing given sizings imo and having the Kh removes almost all notable flushes that he would flat in sb vs my cold 4 and lead flop (K10h, K9hh, AKhh, K8hh etc). Obviously he can still have some nut flushes but the way the pool was spazzing I wasnt keen on folding this combo.

H2) PIO APPROVED OR STREET POKER???



Need to do some population analysis but it feels as if regs are x/r a little to aggro vs 1/3 so definitely going to be incorporating a 3betting strategy on flop. Seems like one of my best combos with BDFD, BDSD and bottom set blocker. Also think it sets up for a node on flop and turn in which regs will be uncomfortable playing and make mistakes.

H3) TRAPPY TRAPPY VS SPAZ REGS (broken is this you for second week in a row?)



H4) INTERESTING TURN AND RIVER SPOT



Vs flop size think its going to be mixed but bvb I think it will raise this combo very frequently. I think turn will be a very high check % so I will probably default and simplify strat by checking range. River is by far the most interesting street. I think I like going a really small size to allow my air to bluff cheap and place heaps of pressure on counterfeit underpairs (QQ JJ and TT) and then also less lose when im bluffing and he has Ax or KK. Havnt Pio'd spot yet but will be interesting.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Not too many interesting spots this week. Just a tonne of standard lines in which a majority of I got on the good side glgl everyone for the end of Jan

Then at the end of each month ill post a monthly recap with more graphs and results of all of the goals I laid out in my opening post. R.e my 2019 goals: I will start these and post about them from the 1st of Jan 2019.

17th December -> 24th December





Rough week. December started out insanely well, up almost 30biEv at 500nl in 20k hands and then the last 2 weeks have gone very poorly to say the least. Approx. 21 bi under EV so far of the 500nl shot, all of which are at 500z. Learnt a lot this week though and really confident going into Jan. Probably wont put too much volume in before then.

H1)



https://clips.twitch.tv/AssiduousOptimisticKalePupper not even that mad tbh

H2)



Actually think this is a pretty clear fold given size. Don't think villain (even unknown reg) ever jams worse and wont have enough bluffs given large river jam for us to even want to start consider bluffcatching here.

H3)


Think turn check is a mistake. I should just X/R triple here. I ****ed up because I didnt realize turn SPR would be so large. I think in a 100b effective spot I like this line because population will 1) bet jam all value and we can get stacks in 2) bluff aggressively vs this line in which population is generally so capped. However, when villain (reg) 1/3 turn its difficult for him to get it all in on the river and then he has a very easy bet fold exploitatively against the pool. I imagined that my check call would allow it so that all his value and bluffs would jam river and it would be overall higher EV. Given how deep we were I should deffs just barrel D:

H4)


Another interesting bluff catching spot. Again, I think that when villain uses this slightly over pot river bet he doesnt have the correct ratio of bluffs for us to want to bluffcatch here profitably, and ofc he is never jamming worse. So another spot that I am definitely looking to make and exploitative fold in the future

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Will try to post more hands next recap and go into a little bit more details on each but I just wanted to get a post in today. Merry Xmas and happy new year legends!

The 99 I would fold pre after we sq and get 4b vs sb. Being deeper its ok to call but it still a low spr situation with middle pair. Its tough to play post flop unless you flop a set. Pretty cool how you made the hands play out on the forum so we can see the action. I like your lag style. Your a nightmare for nit regs.

Better lucky than good, January graph thus far! XD Just winning every flip and distribution is outright filthy. Planning on hitting 70k hands before the month ends. Study has been slow but volume is really good at the moment. 500z has been running so I have been able to 4 table x2 200z and x2 500z, giving me roughly 750 hands per hour. $22689/$150,000 complete POGGS
