Ok, ive watched some high stakes today and it seems like overbetting is the way to go for me. So next XX days i will spend on developing turn overbets.

Ok, so after 115k hands it looks like this:

2.35 bb/100 Poor winrate even nowadays, right?

I recieved another 400$ bonus from Stars and with that my bankroll is now around 2750 $ big.

250$ more to shot nl50 but idk if i will.

Any ideas on what to work to destroy these games? Years has passed and poker is changed now. I know about range betting.

So September was disappointing (it may be slightly different since HM still doesnt support cashout hands from PokerStars)-:

And swingy:

Ive made lots of mistakes. These which im aware of:

  • calling too wild underbluffed line hoping to see a bluff
  • not bluffing good spots thinking that villain will call me anyway with 2nd or even 3rd pair
  • playing while cannot focus

After each 1h session i have like 40-60 marked hands. This shows how many spots i have not figured out it. Bought pio and work on some simple spots like 3bet Co vs UTG. I know that everyone recommends to focus on most common spots like BB vs BTN but my computer is bit too old and its impossible for me to run sim with more than 1 sizing on each street BB vs BTN SRP.

Also ive bought video course which dissapointed me very much. Basically it looks like this:
coach opens PIO, run sim and start talking "we should raise sometimes XX, and call YY, villain should sometimes 3bet ZZ but also fold it". Really? I can do it by myself. I wanna know why this happens, what will change after removing some hands from villain range, how big impact it will have, what if villain is more passive, more aggro? If he doesnt fold draws, how should we play vs him?

I dont have enough sample size on villains so locking strategy in PIO makes no sense. I do it only for training purpose. I really enjoy it.

Goals for this month and next untill year is over are to get to nl50/100 asap. I need 60 buy ins to take shot, and go back after losing 5.
I will move up only if i have 5bb/100 EV in previouse 50k hands. Nothing below 5bb/100 will satisfy me.

What i think about nl25 nowadays? It's damn tight. Really.

Hi. Thanks!
Actually it wasnt reload bonuse since i didnt have to deposit to use it. I recieved 2x 400$ bonus - one in September, one in August.

Oct. 1, 2019 | 12:17 p.m.

Thank you.

Inspired by Onkleb ive decided to open vlog and start playing poker once again after 2 years break. I quitted poker because i could not handle stress of swings and badbeats.
Deposited 1250$ (already doubled thanks to PokerStars reload bonus of 800$) to play nl25. Here i go:

My goal is pretty simple: destroy nl25/50 games and win around 5-8 bb/100.

Actually i won a little bit more but Holdem Manager support is quite shitty and they still didnt release update to solve PokerStars Cashout hands problem ;)

For now poker is my only job. Since january 2019 im learning Java to become full time programmer.

You won't see crazy hands because nl25 is HYPER nitty and i fold to almost any raise and vs underbluffed lines. I'm really happy to see some familiar nicks at nl25 after 2 years for it means that there's still money in poker ;)

Comment | FishPoker commented on AKo SB vs UTG nl16

I locked in PIO villain's strategy which you described and program shows that i should check turn 83% and bet mostly only AK and TT. To simplyfy this i locked checking 100% range OTT and it's ok without losing too much equity (41.97 EV vs 41.77 EV).

I should x/shove turn 28% QQ+, AK, KJ and fold the rest hands.

If you are right and villains is betting all his nuts two pairs+ OTT (which is 41% of his range) then i should bet 100% OTR after turn gets checked back.

This month:

Haha, i am so tired!!! I take 2 dyas break, and will come back to lose unlucky even more!! HAAHA

After a few days of running good, i am back at that point where i lose everything. 5th day b/e.

Kill me. Such big pot happens once in half year and ofc i lose with 96% equity.

June 5, 2018 | 11:18 p.m.

It acutally took mi one day

18 buys in up today... :)

May 31, 2018 | 7:08 p.m.

im playing 50/100 and i want to join!

May 31, 2018 | 7:07 p.m.

For every 3 bad beats and unlucky spots i lost 1 buy in because of mental issues. Thats pretty bad ratio and i should definitely work on my mental game. I just bought "The mental game of poker" and cant wait to read through it!

May 31, 2018 | 7:05 p.m.

Wow, guys, this game is super sick. In just 3 days my results went from this:

to this:

27 days i was running extremly bad, i lost every bigger pot, and since i opened this thread im winning everything :D Thanks RIO God!

May 31, 2018 | 7:03 p.m.

korn1337, thank you so much! Thats a lot of a good advices and i am more than happy to read them! I just added you on skype>

Im using GTO+ instead of PiO

May 31, 2018 | 12:16 p.m.

Im really tired of this shit:

I mean... WHY? Why would anybody call my cold 4bet with 98s? I would understand it if i was super crazy with million % 3bet and stuff... but my overall 4bet range is like 3%? Yes, i know, i should be happy and i will when i finally win against such hands.

May 31, 2018 | 3:36 a.m.

CO was a reg with 80%+ fold vs sqz as PFR + BTN was a whale. Actually BTN called with a worse hand 98s. Im not saying that i sqz this range in every possible spot.

May 30, 2018 | 9:07 p.m.

Real live example:

May 30, 2018 | 8:53 p.m.

The thing is when i work with solver (GTO+ from Flopzilla's crew) and lock strategy most regs play at nl50, solver suggest me usually to have around 20-40% raise cbet strategy and no cold call :D

For example: i squeezed BB vs CO with this range:

BTN calls with this range:

I locked strategy for BTN after my check like this:

And solver told me to play like this:

29% x/shove :D

Am i doing something wrong?

May 30, 2018 | 8:49 p.m.

3 zoom tables. I dont know if that matters but my cbet succes is 32% and fold vs cb is 50%.

So i played in a more agro style and... it didnt workout too well for me :D I found myself in few tough spots. My stats:

May 29, 2018 | 5:52 p.m.

You could adopt a non-cold call strategy from any pos other than BB, with the exception of few spots.

Only 3bet or fold? Can i read more about it somewhere? Could you explain what the pros and cons are? :D

May 29, 2018 | 11:10 a.m.

Could You recommend me a good coach? Which Nick Howard's movie you mean? Thanks!

May 28, 2018 | 9:58 p.m.

Tcalls, i am using solver to lock strategy and find out these spots :) I am not trying to play GTO at these stakes :) Thanks for your advice! I will try it!
