No i was playing my normal limits i just had that one horrid beat where the villain had just a couple dollars more than me and we were both 250bb+ deep so it was a huge pot for my limit and i just went on super spew mode.

Thanks for your post and ill keep my eyes open!

5/2/2014 update

As of today ive busted my online bank roll. I have nothing but myself to blame i had a big hand where i made a full house and the villain rivered quads and busted me then i went on from there to spew the rest of my roll off. I am taking a few days break to mediate and reflect. I am currently focusing most of my time on getting my mind in the right spot as well as increasing my focus and learning ways to not tilt at the tables.

Edit: I forgot to mention i have setup a training routine with my local Kuk Sool won Martial arts class. Im hoping that this training will help me get my anger undercontrol and allow me to learn how to keep inner peace and a higher level of focus.

Thanks for reading!

Have a great afternoon!

Im always betting this flop your getting value out all FDs and SDs as well as some smaller pocket pairs.

Just wondering what the general conseus was with this question. Im assuming PLO is a little bit softer seeing as NLHE is the big game on TV and as such has been played alot more.

Also if there are any Low-mid Stake players that would be interested in sitting in on some skype sessions with us and helping coach us a little bit that would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks! Yea me and my wife are very family oriented and enjoy our kids. I love poker so much beacuse i know that once i make it to the point i can grind out a living will open up so much freedom to me and my family as well as a great income.

Why are you checking your whole range OTF? I think this is a great spot for a check raise to fold out any straight draws and to get value out of any J maybe a T if he is lose.

What hands do you have in his range here that have us beat?

Are you checking your range here to get value out of his bluff range?

I think on the turn we would value your hand over a black KK or AA with the flush outs but they could be dirty.

Post | LucidDreamer posted in Chatter: My 2014 Poker and Life goals

Hello RIO!

A brief bio: I am 23 years old and i have played poker since i was 12 years old learning it from my grandfather and have continued to play off and on. I work full time and have a family. I am married with 3 wonderful children. ( Will  post pics upon request if thats something people would like to see ). I am new to ROI only have recently found it. Ive been on 2+2 for awhile always lurking never contributing so i decided i wanted to start contributing to a community and from what ive seen ROI has the best community to be apart of. The motivation and uplifting that is done here as well as all the in depth analysis and discussion has just blown my mind and i am going to be a RIOer (lol) for life.

I am hoping to find a "poker family" you could say in that i can find a support group and good people to share my life experiences with to not only help me grow but that maybe my story and my input can help another fellow poker play grow or succeed in some way.

I currently play 6man 25nl-50nl and have had decent success. I play on Bovada so i have no software to track but i do keep a notebook i am filling with my win/loss information. Its still a rough draft but im figuring out how to keep it pretty organized and informative. 

My Poker Goals for 2014

- Have a + win/loss for the year winning at least 10k

- Keep a good BRM and dont jump levels to quickly ( Ive not got a set guide line for when to take shots if anyone has any solid guidelines to follow im all ears )

- Keep a personal poker journal recording my thoughts to help me reflect and grow

- Eliminate tilt as much as possible

My Life Goals for 2014

- Pick back up on a healthy eating regiment as well as exercise.

- Join a Martial Arts gym and train 4-5 times a week

- Learn to enjoy life a little more with my wife and kids ( less stress )

- Invest more time into friends and family and build stronger bonds with current friends as well as find new friends to build bonds with.

- Volunteer some time doing something good for the less fortunate

Thats all i have for now. I will continue to update this weekly and i hope everyone has a great 2014!

Thanks for reading and for any input i recieve in advance!

April 24, 2014 | 8:48 p.m.

Watching the training Videos together is a great idea. I had an idea of finding some of the tougher hands posted on here and taking the OP post without all the feedback and having us discuss it together and see what we think vs what others think and see where we come out at.

I think i want to get a few mental poker books and assign homework to read x amnt of chapters before our next meeting beacuse the biggest weakness i know we all share is Tilt and a getting into a bad mental game and spewing.

April 24, 2014 | 8 p.m.

So me and a few of my life long friends are about to start a poker study group. It was my idea so i am going to be "leading" i guess you could say and i wanted to get some tips on how to have a successful study group. Im going to outline my general ideas how they stand now and hopefully with some discussion i can get a good sound plan put together for us.

We are currently going to meet 1-2 times a week to sweat each other playing online for x amount of time then change places. With the idea of discussing interesting spots, trying to find leaks, and learning how to control tilt.

I am planning on having everyone Record hands they have that they feel were tough spots or high pressure situations that we can go over later in a sit down discussion and play the hands out on my tv.

Going to put together a reading list of books for everyone to read depending on what were working on at the time.

Any other activities or tips would be greatly appreciated. Were all micro - low stakes players and our goal is to reach the mid stakes for now and eventually higher stakes as we improve.\

Thanks to all those who put time into helping us out in advance!

My Skype - Lucid_Dreamer2319

Skype Meeting Times: Tuesday/Thursday at 8pm CST. I will be adding more days as we get input from members when we can all meet.

During our skype meetings i will have an agenda for us to go threw for the afternoon and then we will go from there.

Thanks for all your interest

I may be reading it wrong but is shows the BTN folding.. In any case with such a tight villain this is a either your flipping or your crushed spot and to me its a pretty safe fold. With those stats in the BB to ship he is QQ+ AK,AQ.

April 24, 2014 | 5:54 p.m.

What kind of ranges are you giving the Villain in this spot? I dont see what he is shoving here for value pf other than JJ+ and AK maybe AQ. Even if he is shoving 88,99,10 some of the time were still only at best flipping and i dont think we have enough equity to want to flip for stacks.

April 24, 2014 | 5:50 p.m.

I think in this spot its a fold. He clicked back at you after you 4x his bet which his range most likely consists of AK JJ+. A good reg is never going to call off with anything worse than AQ so there is no reason to shove here for value.

I would have folded to his 4b unless he is just 4b you frequently enough for you to assume he has put bluffs in his 4b range AQo is just to weak in this spot.
