Re: ScottyCorbett: 2019 500z Grind and Beyond

MARCH

Poker Study

total = 120/1200 minutes. Welp. Very poor effort here. Not much to say other than I got slack. Generally I find it much less productive and far more boring to study on my own. So, as Skuz and Kieran were AFK for a ****ing month I only did 2 brief sessions. I continued on BvB stuff. Overall, disappointing here.

Meditation

total = 0/280 minutes. N/A. Didn't even make an effort this month.

Mobility

total = 20/420. Again, didn't even make an effort here. I got injured in the start of the last week of March. I did my lower back playing soccer. Went to the physio who diagnosed it as an acute lumbar disc injury (however, given rapid recovery I only think the injury was musculature).

Weight/Gym

total = 100.4 kg (221lbs) --> 102kg (224lbs). Avg weekly increase of 400g per week. Happy all round here. Solid gym progression too, untill I got injured. Hopefully I will be back in the gym roughly a week or so from now. Lifts in march finished off at:

- Weighted dips 5x5 (10kg belt)
- Squat 115kg for 6reps
- Deadlift 125kg for 15reps
- Bench 87.5kg for 4reps
- Overhead press 60kg for 3reps
- Pull-ups 5x4 (Bodyweight)

Poker Earnings

total = $18,517.77 AUD ($13,122.2 USD). Another really solid month! Continued to run well in weeks 1 and 2 with the heat slowing down in weeks 3 and 4. Pretty disappointed with my over monthly volume of 66k hands however. I set out to get at least 80k hands this month and fell short.

MARCH RECAP

Mixed feelings about March. Fantastic financial month with solid progress in the gym. However, it was just a month were I got distracted by a lot of events and commitments outside of poker. Potentially a little to lenient with my flexibility and failed to catch up the hours missed. Felt a bit burnt out in week 3 and slacked some volume here too. Getting injured in my last week of March and being unable to train in the gym and play in my soccer cup game was a very disappointing way to end the month. Also, not putting in the effort to study leaves me feeling I didn't maximize my learning off the tables. Level of play was respectable but I am keen to put my head down and get at least 80k hands in April!

$53,604.71/$150,000 AUD Lets get some filthy volume and profit in April

Hand 2 COvsBTN 3B pot. Does villain blocking the nut straight make his river shove better or worse?

Are you going broke with AJ?

Thanks, I dont really know when to start I am a bit stuck on this. I leave for Europe July 27th so I want to be shredded for that but at the same time I dont think I have gained enough lean muscle mass for a 2 month cut to be worth it. I am probably 21% ish BF so I will definitely cut before it becomes unhealthy (around 27%).

Thanks man. Lol so the way my strength program is setup requires the first set to be 5 reps minimal load, second set 5 reps of medium load and then your final set is maximal load with AMRAP (as many reps as possible). So, at this point when the deadlift loads are fairly light I get too many reps and yeah, it turns into a hefty ****ing cardio session XD

Yikes.. Very rough start to April to say the least. Day 1 went well, roughly 4bi up. Second session of day 2 lost approx. 9bi in 2 hours & roughly 4bi under EV. Hands down the worst I have ever run in one poker session. Anyway glgl, here are some of the hands:

Just simmed it. Mainly 2/3 turn but does overbet occasionally as I did (EV is very similar). Then river it always jams KQ but checks KJ. Guess the EV of getting called off by KJ when you have KQ sways it that much. So yeah, probably a bit too thin (however jamming is still super profitable, just less so than checking by a small amount). No days off here my man, we push forward ty

Hey! Thanks for simming that.

I diasagree that jamming river is profitable, what is your reasoning behind saying that? My thoughts are that once you overbet turn his range is narrowed to only a range that beats yours - you only beat the remaining Kx combos - even if you want to say that AQ calls turn (which I don’t think is true for a lot of regs) then ok include that, but I would say almost every reg in the pool folds that to a river jam. I’m not at my computer but I would guess that the number of times you get called and are beat greatly outweighs the amount you gain from the times that he folds, meaning that with (not that much) value we are essentially bluffing, which we obv should never do in this spot. But maybe I’m a fish


I guess my concluding question would be what makes a bet profitable if we are (most always) only getting called with better hands. I would say 2/3 turn, 1/3-1/2 river can be profitable, but not your line.

So basically the reason that this jam is still profitable comes down to the fact that we gain EV from jamming when 1) we get called by all his worse Kx (he isn't supposed to call any Ax btw see below). 2) We jam and he folds, so we pick up the pot. However we lose some EV the times we jam and get called by better i.e AA. Overall as a calculation the EV gained by getting called by Kx and making him fold over the few times he calls and we lose makes it profitable (see above pio screen shot). However.. as a whole, the EV of checking is higher because on this exact river card we obviously lose to a few hands now so the EV because worse to jam than to check back. But notice how KQ is always a jam, this is because its EV is swayed to prefer jamming because of all the KJo and KJs that now call and we beat. So very slight increases in combos is enough to sway the EV. Hope that makes sense.

His calling range on riv for reference:

Hey man, thanks! I play 500nl reg tables also if the zone games aren't running in my morning time. Only have about 30k hands there though, so tiny sample.

Re: ScottyCorbett: 2019 500z Grind and Beyond

Flop was KK6 not KK7 in the KJ v AA hand fwiw. Difference is probably non-negligible due to having less natural turn bluffs. Also highly doubt that anyone is finding the Q7/J7 call downs in your sim.

Nice results btw, subbed.

Thanks man. Our flop raises are Kx blockers (QJ) and back door open enders (like 78s on KK6). So I think the 7 isn't too significant and the sims would be similar. But after reviewing I agree that KJo should 100% be a check because 7x is also never being called so we aren't gaining EV from that.

Re: ScottyCorbett: 2019 500z Grind and Beyond

1st April --> 7th April

Poker Study
1.5 hours. Did a late Sunday study session this week. Continued on BvB stuff, focused more on turn and river nodes today. Learnt some small nuances which was good.

Meditation
So this was the first week were I tried meditation w/o a timer, recommended in this thread. I enjoyed the session way more and couldn't tell you exactly how long it was for but roughly 15mins. I am no longer going to aim for a minute goal each week rather just quantify volume by sessions done per week. I will 100% continue to meditate w/o a timer.

Mobility
N/A

Weight
102kg --> 101kg. Being injured and unable to train + house sitting atm so my calories have definitely been low has caused me to lose some weight. Physio cleared me to go back to the gym and do everything except for squatting and dead-lifting just for another 2 weeks or so untill full recovery.

Poker Earnings
$6,183.39 AUD ($4,394.73 USD). Super solid week. Had one of the worst 2 hour stints on my second day of the grind but brought it back strong later in the week. Happy with my volume of 20k, on track for 80k hands in April, just need to keep consistent and get these 6 hours a day!

Week Recap
Motivation was strong this week. Probably due to the start of a fresh month and a new office set up at my sisters place which we are house sitting. So it was something fresh and exciting. Think I played solid and glad I finally meditated and studied again although only 1 session of each. glgl lads

2019 = $59,628.52/$150,000 AUD







HH

H1) lol


H2) Somebody get that boy some milk


Many assumptions about villains turn range and river calling range which led me to believe that x/r turn to x/c river would be highest EV and got my mans to punt v hard XD

H3) River Hero


Flop mixing between all options but favoring 1/3 or x/c. Turn seems like a clear x/c vs size. My assumption on river is that he doesn't jam thin enough (he should be jamming almost all 2 pair +). Not only that I think he raises most sets on flop and might only shove top or second set which we block heavily. We also block 108s and A8 which is the bare 8x which I assumes takes turn size to jam river.

H4) cheeky 1 outer

Re: ScottyCorbett: 2019 500z Grind and Beyond

8th April --> 15th April

Poker Study
4.5 hours (270mins). Really happy I motivated myself to study this week. Focused on BvB exploits and nodes.

Meditation
First whole week with untimed meditation sessions. Had much greater success. Meditated 3x which is a solid improvement.

Mobility
N/A

Weight
101kg --> 99.6kg. Had a few light sessions back in the gym but nothing major. Not training hard I dont want to be in a caloric surplus or I am just going to get fat w/o the stimulus. So unfortunately have lost a couple of kg's the last few weeks. This week ill be restarting the bulk and hopefully back into the gym at full strength.

Poker Earnings
$7,490.97 AUD ($5,370.64 USD). Sick week AGAIN pog. Ignition had a complete UI update which was super irritating to begin w/ so couldn't get as much volume in. Table Tamer has come through w/ the fix though so next week should be better.

Week Recap
Really great week all round. Disappointing to have been out of the gym for so long and not to get my 20k hands for the week but injury and UI changes are to blame so not much I can do about that. Really pleased w/ study and meditation. Almost half way of our 2019 goal and only 4 months in LFG!

2019 = $66,533.08/$150,000 AUD





HH

H1) River hero 3BP


Generally a position and board we want to be predominately going large or checking flop. Having a club would be nice but combo still seems decent. Turn mandatory check and river when he polarizes so hard he cucks himself because he realistically has little Kd so pretty easy snap call.

H2) Another victim to slowplay


I mean ridiculous set-up obvs but just comedy how print flatting pre is xd

H3)


Interesting spot on turn whether we want to x/r or x/jam or just keep betting. Pio'd it and almost a pure bet on turn. Unblocking his draws means we want to keep barreling whereas checking bottom set is better to protect range because its much more likely villain bets his Ax in theory. However, I do think turn will be bet too much by villain with all draws which should check back as we are perceived to be very capped. So overall check probably outperforms.

Re: ScottyCorbett: 2019 500z Grind and Beyond

I either bet large or overbet turn with A9 there idk how much of his range is bet/calling, and I think especially THAT turn needs to be bet instead of checked.....but honestly I donít really know bc I virtually never play that turn as a check - so maybe I am missing smthg.

Nice results as per usual, gonna be hard to outpace you this year

Yw for the no-timer meditation advice

what do you mean you never play that turn as a check, what if you have AT, AJ, AQ? or 23cc or other baby flush draw?
