Shot-taking 50NL and Moving Up

Wsup 2p2, been posting on uNL for a while and decided to make a PGC to help motivation and looking for players at similar levels to sweat/advise etc.

Started playing poker like 8 months ago at 2NL with £20, withdrew my BR a couple times bc uni, then deposited £200 1.5 months ago and BR currently ~£1200 and taking shots at 50NL. Here's my wr etc for the last 6 weeks:


Just moved back to stars because traffic on ipoker was sh*t for 50NL and pool is pretty fishy so far. Here's my graph so far, it looks bad but been so many coolers (with a couple bad plays) that I'm confident it's just a DS:


I'll probs just post here whenever I want 1/2 times a week, I'm looking for someone 25NL+ to sweat or talk about hands/strat, hmu

Goals for this week:
Grind
Work on linear 3b/f ranges for MP-BTN
Work on strat for 3b/f ranges post

A2hh hand
What do you put him on after he minraises you? Punting it off feels somewhat wrong. Does he ever have a flushdraw or a weaker 2 with that line?

Gl to you, youll get through the downs.

88-JJ mostly, then 76s AA-QQ at some frequency. Shoving seems fine since draws are priced in and villain can definitely call with worse, + never ever folding rivers.

Re: Shot-taking 50NL and Moving Up

Shot-taking 50NL is not going well. Played another 900 hands today so far down 300bb lmao. Really frustrating, feel I do actually have quite a good edge vs pool and quite a few regs too. Just not making hands, or losing at SD when I do make them or not quite getting the bluffs through.

Missclicked call pre, absolutely shat myself as I really needed anything I could get haha, but worked out fine.

I guess so lol

Unfortunately, I think I'm going to move sites. I love stars software and the competitiveness between other regs but I feel it's smarter to move sites which are softer and with more RB. It'll help me be able to continue moneywise and hopefully give me a little expendable income which would be v helpful as a student. I'm down for being persuaded otherwise though.

I haven't kept this bloggy thing up since I struggled to handle uni + poker, but I've got a 5 week break and have been managing work/poker better the last couple weeks. Aims for these 5 weeks are to write up BTNvBB cheat sheet, and hopefully study and write up a MPvBTN by the end. Aiming to move to 100NL by end of the 5 weeks too. gl

oh yeah ran insanely hot last two days since switching site, up £300 each, so £600 total

Re: Shot-taking 50NL and Moving Up

Just posted this in a discord group I'm in and got me thinking.

Quote:
Just moved 1/2 BR onto Unibet and went well but I'm not sure what to do now. Here's my options as I see it:
1) Move BR onto Unibet, where games are slightly softer + better RB but I autopilot more due to worse software + no zoom. My level of poker stagnates but BR increases.
2) Move BR onto Stars, carry on learning + improving but BR doesn't increase as fast.
Now that I'm typing it up stars seems better, but feels I'm throwing away money from RB + fish by doing so?
After a little discussion, I came to the conclusion that it was short-sighted to try earn money now if I can put more hours into studying poker and earn more by moving up the stakes. If anyone actually reads this thread I'd like to hear some opinions because I'm still torn between to the two.

I'm going to keep my BR split between the two sites for the next week or so until I'm certain of my decision. Played for an hour or so yesterday, +£50.

Re: Shot-taking 50NL and Moving Up

21/03/2018
Screwed up my desktop ln after unplugging is cos the light was p*ssing me off lol, lost a couple months of hands + pokerstars notes.

Up $135 today after 1.2k hands.

Attempting to exploit pool by raising cbet as I think they overfold here. Dislike my river bluff, just doing it cos I have 7 high. Idk what value hands I have here, maybe some JT/A8/K8/84, maybe I should mix some sets in too. Obvs villains cbet is awful and river call is likely bad.

Re: Shot-taking 50NL and Moving Up

Midday 1k hands, up $26 EV.


This hand is that spike at the end, I tank called river lmao, feelsbadman. Turn should be just XJammed. River is so weird, lwe lose 6 combos and get called by maybe 6. Once we X I think we need to call for that price incase they're vbetting worse.

Re: Shot-taking 50NL and Moving Up

Pleased w grind today. Tried out 3 zoom for the first time in a while, felt decent but felt it slightly reduced bb/100. Think it's worth the trade off for more volume though. Was quite a swingy session, some nasty turns/rivers in 3BP and same for big SRP river raises where I have to fold.

Re: Shot-taking 50NL and Moving Up

Went for a 2hr run yesterday and ran 21km, planning to play poker afterwards but just ended up collapsing in my bed lol, so no hands today.

Here's a quick week review:
Unibet: Idk how many hands I played, played a couple hours over 2/3 days and ran very well. +£466.47



Stars: +$571.27


Very good week overall, I spent loads of hours previous to this week (40hrs+) studying and it's really payed off (literally ). Red line is looking v nice, at least in comparison to the very negative one I've always had prior to the last month.

Next week I'm trying to do more of the same, carrying on studying my uni + poker work, run 3 times and carry on grinding. BR is about £2k, debating taking shots on 100NL. I think I'll spend a bit more time studying and then I'll feel comfortable doing so.

Re: Shot-taking 50NL and Moving Up

26/03/2018
Not quite getting bluffs through/hitting hands today. I feel it affected my confidence but didn't actually affect my game too much, silver linings I guess.
The best thing about losing sessions is I lose my arrogance and realise how unbalanced I am in some spots and how weak my strategy is. However enough though I know my strats in lots of spots is v weak and often is done with incorrect reasoning, it is still better than majority of the regs in the pool. Just gotta keep improving, every day.


Gunna post some hands which are less BBEV and more hands which ppl can criticize,

H1: I think OTR it depends on what hands I BC flop. I don't think BC gutshots on the flop is going to be profitable vs pool who when they XR barrel at high freqs (vs better regs I'd do so). So I think this is my hand with best unblockers (i.e. non FD) to bluff with. I need to bluff with a club since I'll have quite a bit of value too.

H3: So my thoughts were villains cbet strategy is going to be very high equity hands and QQ+/JJ/KQs. So I believe our range should be XR only here, as I don't think XC QQ/AJ is going to be profitable OOP vs this range (as far as I've seen from PIO work so far). So if I'm going to XR, it's nice to do so w QQ since its got good equity + good blockers to the nuts. In hindsight, maybe folding to 3B is best since lets be honest, it's JJ/KQs majority of the time.

H4: I think the XR works as an exploit and perhaps theory wise also? Going to be wanting to raise quite a few hands OOP here and Q9s has some nice BDs to do so. I call turn as I feel they have some protection bets/weird stabs, but fold river as underbluffing mainly due to overfolding flop.

H5: This hand is possibly the one I am most concerned about/interested in. Early days of studying HJvBTN, but from what I've got so far ppl are very capped when they x back flop and we are uncapped (I x range), so we want to OB. Makes sense I think, but I feel 80% or whatever achieves a similar thing. I guess it depends if I want to balance, so maybe 150% is just as fine.

LOOKING FOR A COACH I'm considering getting a coach to try increase my efficiency in studying poker + playing vs players, and since I've earned about 1k the last week I feel I can financially sustain one for a bit. If anyone can recommend me a coach that they know would be suitable, it would be greatly appreciated <3

Re: Shot-taking 50NL and Moving Up

Terrible volume today since I went out to watch the england game in the afternoon, but 160BB aint too shabby.


H1: One of the easier river calls.

H2: Quite an interesting hand. Decided to OB river since I actually thought villain was quite capped (thought they would bet sets/flushes or XR on turns a high %, and has no Kd XCs) so it's nice to do it with what bluffs I have too (whether I have enough bluffs is another question).

H3: Not sure I'm a fan of this bluff tbh, in reality I only have Q5s/55 here so not much value. Blocker wise it depends if they have Q9o/99 in their range here, otherwise a 3 might be more relevant. 5 seems irrelevant but may be good to have as it unblocks bluffs. I think it's fine as long as I don't always do it.

Not too shabby, I'm liking the look of my red line. Did some more work on HJvBTN today, starting to understand new concepts and feel I'm going to play that spot v well compared to pool.

Re: Shot-taking 50NL and Moving Up

30/03/2018
Decent day, mixed bag of a session but happy to get another winning day


H1:Might be spew, I haven't actually worked on these boards yet but from what I've seen this may be okay. I feel we need some non club hands to find bluffs on four club boards, this makes sense blocking sets. OTR I felt I'll have no bluffs, so I put sets and even QJs/KQs/KJs in spots.
