I think the problem with win rate is it really depend on opponent skill. In reality I should't be winning as much it just that people are literary making the worst kind of adjustment against me at head up on bodog. I didn't do anything special except try to play mix strategy gto( still mess up on turn/riv). My result has been meh on stars against other euro guys even though they still don't play "prefect pre". Natural I just have such a big advantage against U.S base player. Imagine waking up every morning at peak 8 am and playing against night time eastern time zone. By the time I take my afternoon nap and wake up people are just throwing me money when I sit. Another huge advantage is since I need to spend less time to "earning a living" 2.5k a month to survive here I can spend the rest of the time studying or reading to enhance skill gap. It actually not fair to the guys I am playing against but that the global economy we live in. Sadly this won't last long since I am moving back very soon. Dreading having to play night time and mess up with my sleep.

Btw how much would you guys be willing to pay for some lhe videos contend. I need to somehow make up for lost income once I move back.

very good book on sleep/affect brain/health recommend must read for any poker player https://www.amazon.com/Why-We-Sleep-...rds=sleep+book

You have do enjoy what you do or what's the point? You're clearly killing it so forge your own path. Someone once told me things actually get easier not harder in white chip land. I'm starting to believe that's true.

Edit: I wasn't planning on posting my 6 max stats for fear of being look down. But if 2+2 taught me anything it that you have to be willing to hear criticism.

Do you have a 50% vpip at 6-max or am I reading this wrong?

Also, please don't stop posting graphs.

Look at hands by position.

Re: 2018 NC/LC THREAD - are we ever going to get a title?

Not sure how much limit holdem contend is really worth these days, considering the (relatively) low earnings ceiling compared to other games. I would think your best bet for coaching would be to market towards either A) really good Stars 8g players who are weakest at LHE or B) really good online LHE payers who want to become great. So small volume, high price point, intense work w advanced players.

Maybe there would be a market for 40/80+ live players, but I'd imagine they are playing in games where identifying opponents' tendencies and playing in a lot of spots that don't come up at all online are the most important things that determine their success - that seems difficult to coach.

I don't think marketing to general LHE/poker population would yield great results.

Maybe a student or two could pay you to help them with NL or PLO as you learn it.

That sounds a lot more useful than learning top notch lhe

I will skip replying to other and do this first. I think this is where there a lot of misconception about how poker works. Let me give an example say there are two battling head up and you are an observing. You get to only see the rivers. The first player is a GTO bot and for some reason is malfunction and always fold river showing full house+ to a bet however otherwise play prefect. While the second player is regular pro but are very observant and can exploit river and for this situation always bluff the river.

Now my question becomes who would you pick in the long run? I would always pick the GTO bot because everyone is focus on situation that happen far less in isolate river spot. Ask yourself how many time does the situation you are frustrated over happen and why does it always is a river situation instead of bigger leaks in earlier game tree. It actually quite hard to overcome the mistake you make pre/flop/turn against someone who play prefect mix strategy even if you play perfect river. Think about it earlier situation game tree will always be bigger then river. Fix the biggest leak first and that what I mostly did to improve my game. I still awful on turn and river spot but that fine as long as I keep fixing common spot first and then work my way down.

There actually a way to play where you just figure the GTO of each position EV. And you just focus on max that +ev and pay no attention to how exploitative other are as long as you following the GTO strategy alone that way every time that other aren't playing gto you are +ev. So in a way it a short cut to never worrying about what other are doing but instead focusing on your non gto move. Also Lhe is probably one of the game that actually prefect to play this style since you aren't allow to mix up your bet size the advantage of playing max exploitation are overrate since you are kidding yourself to knowing all spot to do this and not play another game like NL/plo where reward are way bigger.

Bodog rarely runs full 6 max anymore most of the time it 3 handed. so this pic will show real stats.

Ok I'll bite.

How different are button, small blind, and big blind strategies in HU, 3-handed, 6-handed, and full ring games?

Given that preflop decisions are most common, do you always take that approach first and work downwards -> flop, turn river?

What's the best tool you've found for simming hands? Do you write any of your own software? I'm thinking about writing one for mixed games.

Why are you winning while others are losing?

Re: 2018 NC/LC THREAD - are we ever going to get a title?

only difference is hu and 3 handed+ it just the nature of the opening range which led to different strategy. Don't think there a better way to learn except pre-flop-turn-riv you start off with 100% action and work down ex. open X and then flop happen to have 100% of that starting and each action bet X or check X and the game tree get smaller. Like I said by the time river come the tree becomes much smaller aka rarer why would you fix that first? Monkersolver for solving for position +ev you then use that pre flop range and sim it with pio solver for visualize. No I barely know how to open excel.

I think I am quite lucky and happen to be able to take advantage of being able to play american site and earn more while playing less. Before that would led to slack off and wasteful spending and repeat process. Now I try to fix my life leaks using the same method that got me winning in poker. Basically what matter is your cash flow aka what you do with your time/free cash to reinvest in yourself to build bigger edge instead of paying yourself first aka life degen. You can't control your income due to variance but you can control your consistency in studying and learning. It kind of like the wheel barrel concept none of the little push is going to make the wheel turning fast enough for it to spin out of control you just push at it slowly every day and one day it just takes off is how I would say my poker/life philosophy.
