Thanks calvin.


I haven't read this whole thread yet, so sorry if these have been asked.

What are your thoughts about coaching, and is there any coach(es) you'd recommend?

I've heard there's this irish guy who is excellent, old something or, can't remember . No but coaching i think is sometimes overpriced but can be a very effective kick-start to a players game. If you are finding your game is getting a bit stale, it can't hurt to get someone who's been through everything you have to give you their thoughts on your game.

I've been playing on FT for bout a month or 2 now, and still dont have PT or HEM. I just ptr people lol. Am I at a huge disadvantage for not taking advantage of a HUD?

I think that as long as this is not your long-term plan it can be a very good thing. You don't want to get too dependant on your HUD.

I think my biggest problem is when I play poker I'm never focused on it, and autopilot too much. I'd say 90% of my sessions I play too many tables while doing other stuff. For example, I'm typing this while 10 tabling. It seems like I'm always browsing 2p2, watching sports highlights, ect while 8-10 tabling, but I just cant seem to focus on just poker for more than 30 mins or whatever, I think I just get bored of it. How would you recommend I fix this massive leak?

Sounds like you may have lost your hunger to grind, maybe taking a little bit of time off and then when you get back, grind fewer tables and be more disciplined about not multi-tasking.

Thanks again, and dont forget to post pics of your new house!

If i get it, there is a bidding war on ATM, we'll see.

Calvin

Edit: I also like never pay attention to other players tendencies =(

=(

I'm assuming the order you got coached by these was 3, 2, 1?


If recently, I assume the Jungleman coaching was pricey, do you think its worth it(for him, or for any coach charging a very high rate) ?

Yes but i don't know how long it would take, it would also depend on the players willingness to broaden their thought process. You'd be surprised how many players are constricted from advancing just because of their closed-mindedness.
I'm guessing you probably don't want to go into too much detail on this ( by essentially giving out free advice/coaching I mean) but could you give a brief example of the kind of thing you mean here?

Great well, thank you.

quick question regarding caffeine and needing less hours of sleep: what is the correlation?

good luck with all and your house.

I don't drink caffeine, but i would be very surprised if drinking caffeine makes you need less sleep. I find eating whey protein snacks is the best way best energy boost.

Thanks, but i got outbid on it .

Re: The well, oldjude.

When and how did you approach learning HU? Were you already very comfortable with your 6 max game and crushing it or did you figure them out at the same time?

Did you just jump in and learn HU yourself or did you get a coach or try to do some other form of learning before you jumped in?

Would you recommend that microstakes 6 max players who want to improve and move up should try to learn HU as well?

Re: The well, oldjude.

Thanks again for doing the well, glad to see it's still going strong. I was wondering:

Which bothers you the most - making a hero call and being wrong, or having someone hero call you when you're bluffing and being right?

With a red line like yours, does the latter occur more often?

In your opinion what % of current 2/4 regs on ftp have the potential to succeed and win at 5/10+?

It was somewhere around august 2009, i approached it by starting out playing some good regs at 2/4 and 5/10 and was playing the better 10/20 regs by december. Yes i was already crushing 6max when i began playing HU(though i had started tables a lot beforehand so i did have some experience).


Did you just jump in and learn HU yourself or did you get a coach or try to do some other form of learning before you jumped in?

I got coaching almost from the start. I would recommend that you find an affordable coach if you are going to start any new game.


Would you recommend that microstakes 6 max players who want to improve and move up should try to learn HU as well?

I'm glad i did decide to learn since it has improved my overall game and just made me a more versatile player. Yes i would recommend that you add some HU to your game.

Np man.

Definitely the latter. I'm wrong about hero calls all the time and it rarely bothers me . But come on its too much fun to be right in situations like this


IPoker Network $5000.00 No Limit Hold'em - 2 players
The Official 2+2 Hand Converter Powered By DeucesCracked.com

BTN/SB: $16149.00
Hero (BB): $7168.00

Pre Flop: ($75.00) Hero is BB with 2 J
BTN/SB raises to $100, Hero calls $50

Flop: ($200.00) K 4 K (2 players)
Hero checks, BTN/SB bets $150.00, Hero raises to $487.50, BTN/SB calls $337.50

Turn: ($1175.00) 8 (2 players)
Hero bets $900.00, BTN/SB calls $900

River: ($2975.00) 8 (2 players)
Hero checks, BTN/SB bets $1487.50, Hero calls $1487.50

Final Pot: $5950.00
BTN/SB shows 5 5
Hero wins $5948.00
(Rake: $2.00)

(brag obv)


With a red line like yours, does the latter occur more often?

hmmm, not sure. I would guess it does.

In your opinion what % of current 2/4 regs on ftp have the potential to succeed and win at 5/10+?

Interesting question, i think quite a lot of them have the potential. Whether or not they go about fulfilling that potential the right way could be a different story. On a guess, i would actually say most of them probably have the potential to be winners at 5/10, so 90% or so.

Re: The well, oldjude.

Great well oldjude. I don't actually remember the last time on a forum I read through a whole 26 pages!

I've never played against you but would love to at some point because I have a feeling the way we play might be pretty similar. I'd taken a long break from poker but have come back a better player I think... I mean it says a lot about your game when the brit that finished 21st in the WSOP will sit at a table with 5 other regs happily but if I join will often leave without pos on me.

Anyway my question(s) are about tilt. how easily do you tilt on a scale of 1-10? And what tilts you more: Bad beats or just really bad play from you? Also if you don't tilt much, how do you stop yourself from tilting?

As you can tell from my questions tilt is/at least was my biggest flaw by far. I could crush every other reg except maybe one on the site I play but my tilting sessions always had a massive effect on my overall winrate. I think I've kind of got a hold more on my tilting now but then again I've been on hot form recently!

From 1 to 10, how famous do you want to be in the poker world? 10 is the most.

I don't understand what you're saying here.

I don't tilt very often anymore. In fact its very rare. Definitely the biggest thing that makes me tilt is when i run horrible. The best way to not tilt is to be amply bank-rolled. The best way to untilt is to make a horrible play but win a huge pot anyway.


As you can tell from my questions tilt is/at least was my biggest flaw by far. I could crush every other reg except maybe one on the site I play but my tilting sessions always had a massive effect on my overall winrate.

Re: The well, oldjude.

What's your biggest breakeven stretch and downswing in form of bi's?

What measurements did you take to better handle the psycholigcal effects of poker(tilt)?

How long are your sessions usually, and if you end up or down like 5 bi's in 30 mins, do you continue or take a break for some hours before returning? Also do you believe in rostuckoing if you're like down several bi's, no matter how long it takes?

I don't really go on BE stretches, my short-term graph is usually jagged peaks and troughs. The biggest losing streak i was on was around $100k.

Be overrolled.

My 6max sessions usually last about 60-90 mins. HU i'll just play til they quit, or maybe if i know they'll be back ill play til i don't feel like it anymore.
