Thailand Adventure

Hi guys,

I've just moved to Thailand in order to concentrate on poker full time... whilst having a good balance

I want to use this blog to keep myself motivated to play and set volume/study/gym targets.

I was BE at 100z at the start of the year but with some good coaches I've managed to improve a lot and beat 200z over a small sample. I'm going to playing mainly 100z this month because of the Thailand outlays I've had so far so I don't have to worry as much about a DS.

My 200z sample


My 100z since coahing


These are obviously small samples but I'm hoping to keep pushing forward!

Volume target for October is 75k 100z hands
Study target isn't set yet
Gym target is set yet

October so far:


GL Me

Thanks - I think im going to avoid these for now at least until I settle in to Thailand a bit more, but thank you for the offer.

Re: Thailand Adventure

Ok so today started amazing! Won $450 in about 20 mins and I'm about to go have a wank over my graph...



Then the wheels fell off... I played fine in th enext session but got brutalised, could have save some money in some spots though -$650.

I took a break to refresh, wasn't exactly far from BE for the day.

I played again, started off mediocre winning small but then it went pretty bad also... I told myself I needed to man up and play better and I started pound away again... But then I made a huge error in a $464 pot! Where I over jam vs a whale with a flopped 2 pair not noticing the river had paired the under card meaning his OP beat me... I literally nearly threw my computer out the window in frustration lol. I then lost some flips and had some terrible spots and probably didn't quite recover mentally from that pot... and ended the 2nd session -$840...

Day 5 Graph:



October so far:



10.3k/75k hands 8.98BB -0.12evBB
