Yeah, she's been amazingly supportive the entire time. She sees firsthand how much I want to succeed in poker and live this life where we have freedom. I can't describe how thankful I am for her, she put up with me being at the end of my rope often last year.

2/13/2020



In the middle of an unreal stretch and nothing to do but push on. I want to post in here to hold myself accountable and ground myself. Like 12k or so below ev last 5 days. It's not included in the graph because ignition won't import since the new update.

Just have to focus on trusting the process. I can't ever run at ev on my second site, it's just beyond my comprehension. It really affects my confidence there. For the time being I'm dropping down to 500 and just 4tabling on ignition until my confidence comes. back. Putting this graph up to remind myself that it's all good.

I'm so f*cking tired of talking about ev but every time I'm ready to break through at 1k and have a 40-50+ bi month I get completely smacked in ev. I was actually above ev for the first time the last couple months - about 10k - and bam just right back under. After working so, so hard for the last year, it feels so unfair to be where I am at in relation to my ev. I know how pathetic it sounds to talk about "fairness" as a part of poker, but it's the way I feel nonetheless. It makes it so hard to bring my A game/positive attitude every day.

I've been reading a lot of the PGC threads by crushers who have worked their way thru the stakes and it's comforting to know that everyone struggles through similar periods, and I know people who have had/have it worse, and I dont' want to harp on it anymore! I'm gonna hammer out 50 buyins @ 500 before going back up to 1k.

What's so stupid about all this is that I could go and make 20 buyins tonight and feel on top of the world again. I need to learn to not get so attached to my results. I've worked a lot on this in the last year and 90% of the time I am great about it - MUCH better than I was last year. But when I hit that bottom 10% of runbad I get really affected. As a professional it bothers me that it gets like that. I do think, though, that after another year or so with a good chunk of positive results behind me, that I will have made some significant headway in this arena.

I've gone through about half the Kanu course, if it doesn't improve it's a complete joke and a waste of money, it's nothing that a good 200 reg doesn't already know.

Don't set goals, make a system. Trust the process!

Amy other cash game courses you went through? Seems like most courses are mediocre at best, and if you want best coaching possible, you have to get cfp from really good player+play reasonable stake.

Solid results. Also cannot win flips (a lot) at 500z but gotta take it in strides.

Kanu course is average so far imo aswell. He does some weird **** aswell but nothing I havnt seen or heard so far.

Re: Success, Sobriety, and Financial Freedom: Out of Poker Retirement and back to Mid/Hi Stakes

Sorry to re-hijack this thread but would love an invite to that Skype group if possible or any update on the investigation.

Post Sept 1 I have moved from 5/10 to 2.5/5 and now to 1/2 and am still seeing much of the same stuff. The 1/2 games seem insanely good often 2-3 players VPIP'ing 75%+ but I have been barely winning over pretty sig sample.

I had chalked it up to variance but play styles have definitely changed among some regs. Weird amounts of time being taken to make all in calls in spots where it is a snap, almost like they are slowrolling flop spots in PLO. Showing up with absurd hands in 3 and 4b pots and smashing boards..idk something just feels off. Did anything else ever come out of this?

6bb/100 over 642k hands before sept 1
-3.4bb/100 over 90k hands after sept 1 (including lower stakes)

PLO & NLH dating back to Jan 2015

Nothing else came out of it. Maybe some collusion or whatever but mostly the games have just gotten harder. If anyone has a question like this, plz don't put it in here anymore.

Mid-Feb Update






Getting smacked still but rather than sitting there grinding out my B game and whining in here like I did in my last post, got off my ass and implemented positive change. Pretty tough stretch @ 5/10 and running p bad everywhere in allins but also I was playing really long sessions and getting tired towards the end & not playing A game. Last week I've been playing two tables of 500 and 2 tables of 200z to get some confidence back. Biggest swong this year in terms of $ but not much in bb's so w/e. Feeling very good about my grind/plan overall, playing well, studying.

I am back to scheduling my entire week out in advance, hour by hour with little leeway. I am 100% happier and more productive when I do this and don't know why I stopped.

I do have some exciting news tho, I hired a coach! Guy I've looked up to for awhile and I know I'll learn a lot from, so I am v excited for this.

Not much else, gl @ the tables everybody

Nice update. Big +1 to getting a coach, getting a player that is stronger than you to view your game through is a strategic lens is invaluable. I hope it pays off for you!

Keep up the good work

You are a steadfast dude. It’s cool because your one of those extreme personalities coupled with deep inner belief.

If you’re gonna party, you’re gonna party until the wheels falls off.

If you decide to succeeded, you will do anything to get there. Many people would have packed it in thus far. GL.

Yeah I don't ever give up, & I don't think anyone ever should either. Thanks. Also I don't want to give the impression that this has been one huge struggle, I had the extreme end of the variance stick last year but 2019 was still a huge success for me.

2/25/2020

My scheduling gets more effective as time goes on, I've started to color code things, for w/e reason it helps me to enjoy it even more.

I don't want to come across as too Tony Robbins-y, but if I could give one piece of advice to anyone trying to organize their lives or increase their productivity, I would tell them to make one of these and stick to it for 2 months. It won't be easy at first, I failed big time in the beginning, but I get better each week and now I adhere to it completely unless something comes up, which is clearly nbd. I like being organized but am not naturally good at it (every time I stop doing this I fall off), now I look forward to doing this every Sunday. It also makes my fiancee happier as we can schedule things together rather than have miscommunications about this or that. If I could put a number on it, I would say it increases my productivity by 70% and my overall happiness by slightly less. Hugely +ev

BJJ going absolutely fantastic, I MAY compete in a ATL area tournament weekend of 3/14-3/15. I could enter for both gi and no-gi and I really feel drawn to competing despite my age. We'll see



Bonus hand. He did tank the whole timebank before flickin it in:

Re: Success, Sobriety, and Financial Freedom: Out of Poker Retirement and back to Mid/Hi Stakes

Also wanted to mention that I’m right at 190, goal is to keep at my current macros and get to 200, then lean out again. I am @ 14%bf which is v high for me, but there’s such a noticeable difference fighting @ 175 vs 190, it’s been a lot of fun to see how big of a difference a little size can make. Idk if I have mentioned here but I train at Top Team Atlanta, it’s for sure one of the best fighters’ gyms in the SE United Stares (maybe the best), and it makes for a really great, competitive environment where everyone is always working hard. Our coach Roan Carneiro is one of the best humans I’ve been around in MMA, he’s like a dad to a lot of guys in the gym and still competing himself, so it creates this fun dynamic of teacher & students working together. It also makes following UFC/Bellator a little more fun, idk if anyone reading this is a fight fan but for those who are a few guys from my gym have had or have big fights coming up -

- Michael Graves just defended his Titan FC welterweight championship. He is top 3-4 toughest guys I’ve ever rolled with, he has W’s over Vincente Luque & Randy Brown and lost a close one to Usman. If he wouldn’t have lost his UFC contract he would be right up there w/ anyone in the UFC ww division, he’s a monster

- Anthony Rocco Martin has a fight coming up in UFC on 4/25. He’s a really good dude and a good fighter w/ serious bjj skills so I am rooting for him to keep up the w streak

- Douglas Lima is stepping up a weight class to fight Moussasi in Bellator. Obv can’t say enough about how talented him and his brother are but more than that the Lima boys are all around great kids, always laughing, always positive in the gym, full of gratitude, etc. They also work nonstop and are there every day all day. It’s a huge challenge to step up a weight class and I’m excited for the fight

I’ve also added on a wrestling class once a week, I played b-ball growing up and so never did wrestling as a sport (same seasons) but I’ve always wanted to get into it as my dad was a wrestler. I want to to get my takedowns dialed in, esp if I’m going to compete in the old man division coming up here. Mike Galitello is teaching me and I feel really lucky to have such a small class to work with him, sometimes it’s just me and one other person. I’ve learned a lot in a short period of time.

GL all

Awesome thread. Really cool to see you balance your passion for poker and mma. Wrestling was my main sport growing up and I was lucky enough to meet/train with some guys who fight in the ufc now. Look forward to following your success in poker and bjj/mma.

Thanks man. I played bball growing up in instead of wrestling, I wish they would have been during diff seasons so I could have done both.

MARCH 2020

POKER

Highlight of the month was how much I learned from coaching. I have a long, long ways to go, but it gives me a lot of hope for the future of online poker seeing just how much there is to learn.

I am putting the majority of my volume on an untracked site now, but action has been great everywhere; feels strange that we are the only industry that has improved significantly because of covid.

Running far below ev again which is laughable at this point but that will turn around, it just is what it is.

I won a BBJ for the first time in my career on 3/31; I won the pot plus the winning hand part of the jackpot for a llittle over 10k. All in all it's looking like 2020 is going to be way more successful from a $ perspective than I could have hoped for.

EVERYTHING ELSE

Not much else to report, I sure miss bjj, but as I am as antisocial as anyone these days I don't mind being quarantined. I'm sure I'd be singing a different tune if I didn't have a partner who I enjoy spending time with, though.

We've been working out a lot, a mix of yoga with trail running in the park (I've been running in those barefoot shoes and really enjoying it, it seems like it would be the best way to run). Then every 3rd day we do either an upper or a lower body workout with weights. Will come out of this in better shape than when I went in.

I have mixed feelings about COVID, though obviously not about the disease itself as this is terrible for everyone individually. But at a societal level, if there is any hope for humanity it will take destabilization in order for us to change the way we do things. I think it's shamefully ironic (but completely typical) that much of humanity largely ignores exponentially greater risks (our environmental crisis, our physical & mental health) every day, but all of a sudden we are up in arms about this. Although it's obv most likely hopeless, I DO hope that people come out of this collectively more aware of our fragility as a species.

GL at the tables

Oh, I am getting back into drawing. I drew a lot when I was young and I am really happy to be doing it again. Here's a leaf I drew, go easy on me lol as it's my first one in a long time.

Re: Success, Sobriety, and Financial Freedom: Out of Poker Retirement and back to Mid/Hi Stakes

4/16/2020




Time for the mid-monthly motivational post!

I started off the month up smthg like 40k and have hit an atrocious stretch of variance, just can't get anything going, ~20bi downer. I got really frustrated during it and had periods where I didn't play my best, but I've cut back on tables, done some sweats with friends, coaching every week (still the poker highlight of my week), and send/recieve a ton of hands back and forth between my friends, all winners in my games. I woke up today really motivated and ready to get after it, didn't go my way but was out of my control.

Just mainly want to post to tell myself to get after it, still 2 weeks left in the month and just feeling really thankful for how good the games are right now. I feel guilty saying it but this is the literal best thing that could have happened for online poker, can't imagine a single thing that could be better outside of US legalization.

Coaching has been a real game changer for me, just really thankful for it.

Not much else going on obv, sleep schedule completely insane right now, but I'm just going to take this whole time to get as much volume as possible within reason. Still working out, stretching, doing yoga. Doing some random zoom stuff with family and friends and zoom AA meetings.

I know a lot of people have it really hard right now, I'm thankful to have a job that allows me to work from home, I'm thankful for a nice home, for a fiancee I laugh with every day. I'm so thankful for her, even more than before.

I can't help but feel like we are in a science fiction movie and can't quite grasp how crazy this all is.

GL @ the tables everybody, and my heart goes out to anyone struggling during this.

Re: Success, Sobriety, and Financial Freedom: Out of Poker Retirement and back to Mid/Hi Stakes

^ ^ thanks guys

I listen to a lot of music, I have always been interested in Fiona Apple as a person even though her music was never really my cup of tea. I’m always drawn to weird, smart, sensitive, angry, damaged people, because that’s what I am.

Her new album got a 10/10 Pitchfork review - the first in 10 years - so I am trying to get into it. (Disclaimer: Pitchfork is way too hipster for me, and I disagree with their reviews often, but still, for it to get 10 is pretty awesome). She uses the sounds in her house (she lives as essentially a recluse) for a lot of the “instruments”, and her lyrics are full of meaning. I don’t imagine 2+2 is going to be the place where a bunch of posters are gonna find their inner Fiona Apple fans, but it’s just a really interesting album, I think it will take a bunch of listens to completely get into.

I absolutely love this song from it:

Re: Success, Sobriety, and Financial Freedom: Out of Poker Retirement and back to Mid/Hi Stakes

Great stuff, man! I dealt with similar mental/lifestyle-issues like you in my past and still do, so you are an inspiration to me. Your journey means a lot to readers like me, especially when one factors in the daily battle it takes to achieve all those things. Things, that in the end equal personal freedom. One of the few substantially worthwile threads in PG&C.

Big +1 on every word on COVID, probably the biggest black swan ever (so far ).

Don't know Fiona Apple at all, but it did (and your description of likes) remind of Soley, who is deeply melancholic and tortured (at least in her music/public persona) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLedNmfNu9s
