No reason to go into lockdown if the bad session are a combination of run bad and play bad. If that is the case it might be time for lockdown study time. That always helps me a ton. It gets me more focused on winning which decreases the amount of the downswing we encounter.

I am convinced that most of the downswings that occur in the micros are mainly due to tilt which results in bad play and spewage. We as players are chalking it up due to variance way more often than it really is. Sometimes its variance and sometimes its just playing off our A game. A lot of the times it is small amounts of variance resulting in knocking us off our A game and playing sub par fishy poker. This results in turning normal 5 bi downswings into 10 bi downswings.

We need to focus on our play from an objective point of view to make sure we are not putting leaks into our games that are only there because we are thrown off our game. The best players in the world don't necessarily not tilt as bad as us. They just know how to identify when they are not on their game and have the discipline to quit and take a break. Do some sweats and do some HH reviews and it will do a world of good for our games in downswings.

Not saying this is the case for you just making a note of it.

Re: ***Official 2009 Micro Stakes FR Full Tilt Regulars Thread***

no problems...I sometimes overthink things when I play...and I was like "this is standard, what the heck are you thinking about" so I posted it. I wasn't insulted.

I should of posted the chat afterwards. Villain started to berate me for my play, then other players started to berate him. So I start piping in that He played it right and I played it wrong and go lucky..So I was defending a fish who was berating me for being a donk.......

Edit: I usually try to sync my FT notes and HEM's HUD note feature. This way you only lose the color coding in the lobby in case something goes wrong. Main reason though I do this is that I like to have my notes and color coding in the HEM replayer whenever I review hands.
I don't like the fact that if you use color coding in FT, you don't know if you have an actual type written note on someone unless you hover over there name.

So now what I do, is I put my written notes in HEM, that way I can tell without moving if I have a note on them.

I have to agree with this 100%. I used to pound up 1200-2500 hand sessions 8 tabling but latley I have been trying to keep it to 600-800 hands and play a few sessions a day and I am having MUCH better results. If you can get your mind fresh you will play better. Long sessions SOMETHING is going to happen to tilt you, by breaking it up you save yourself money.

Re: ***Official 2009 Micro Stakes FR Full Tilt Regulars Thread***

Can someone do some math. Suppose you are a 70% favourite and you decide to run it twice. Suppose the first time all of your safe outs hit. With those outs now gone, are you still a favourite to win the second run?

I agree. I am not a big fan of long session. It is pretty tough to play your A game for that long. That is why the same pros make it deep in the main event a lot more than others. They just have a higher stamina and endurance level for long hours of play.

Very good point. Not all losing during a downswing is just variance. Bad run results into (sometimes) bad play aka spewage at least by me. But it is although true that variance should not knocking us off our A game because it is only part of the game.

Ugh

Guess ill actually have to try and get 15 days in this month instead of trusting the FT store. Though I have a feeling Im gonna get like 12 in then have to suffer Mpethys nightmare. Thing that really irks me though is that Id rather just play 1.5k points in a day and take bronze for the month.. I know what the system is trying to do but I really want some more flexibility in there.

It would be easier when I had outs rather then percenatges. Do you mean 70% pre? My stomach said yes but not sure about it.

think of it like this, say you get it all in on the flop and the villain has 8 cards only that allows him to suck out on for the next two streets. (no chance for resuck out or split pot to make the calcs easier)

so on the first "run" his chance of hitting are 8/45+8/44=36%

for the second "run his chance of hitting are 8/43+8/42=38%

I haven't had a problem, but I usually buy early. Like say its the 29th and I think I may need 1 or 2 days, then I will buy them on that day instead of waiting till the end when all the "system problems" seem to occur.

Re: ***Official 2009 Micro Stakes FR Full Tilt Regulars Thread***

Is there etiquette regarding playing with 2p2ers? Like is it rude for me to join a bunch of the same tables as another 2p2er (not because of the 2p2er, prob because of the soft table)?

Just please dont sit directly to the left of a 2+2er if there are other empty seats at the table. When i join tables with a known 2+2er i try to be respectful and sit directly opposite then i dont effect the way they normally play at a table (stealing etc)

I don't think so. In any case, the higher the limit, the more regs are at any given table, so it's pretty much unavoidable to sit with other regs or 2p2ers. Only thing I'd consider rude is sitting HU to the direct left of someone starting tables you know as a reg/2p2er. Sit across from him imo.

edit: lol yeah, what El Nino said ...
