Just finished playing for tonight (11:30pm) and reached my goal of 400 hands. It's tough to play as much as I'd like, # kids all doing remote learning at home due to the virus. My partner (their mom) has medical problems and is in and out of the hospital (she came home today after being in hospital since Tuesday). Anyway, I try to get as many hands in as can but it's tough sometimes.
Didn't play all that well tonight. Made some silly plays but was able to come back a little at the end. Was down over 5BI at one point came back to finish down under 2BI.

I know this is the cash forum but along with cash I played 3 tournies today as well.
Min cashed 2 of them (1 NLH and one 6-mas PLO)
and bubble the FT of another. Won a little in cash as well.
Tournaments are so frustrating haha

I think I'm raising id he bets flop.
I def need to get a better understanding of when/why to pot vs smaller sizing. I think i made a mistake by betting this river. Given he is so AA heavy and also some straights out there I think a check call would be better.

I'm honestly not sure if calling the 3 bet here pre was correct. Only had 11 hands vs villain.
I think my flop check was bad. Given he is weighted towards AAxx here I think he is calling on flop no matter what I bet. Calling here on river after he jams, knowing he is AA heavy... was this a bad call?

I know my path doesn't lead me to being some full time crusher based on how much time I actually get to put into studying/playing (work FT and have 3 kids so not much free time) but I'm going to just try and do the best I can.

So the From The Ground Up PLO course is great so far, but it's so hard to see what Emty is doing when he is using MonkerSolver which is a big bummer. Wish there was a way to soom in or something.
Overall though it's full of great content. Already gotten a lot of info I hadn't thought about before and i'm not even 1/4 through the course yet.

Post | Matt D posted in PLO: Getting back into the game

Hey everyone.

I used to play a lot of poker. I did very well playing live NLH & PLO at Foxwoods, was mostly breakeven at PLO online, was losing at NLH online. I did win a little bit in 8game but being from the US I don't really have access to those games anymore.

I stopped playing live right at the end of 2010. I stopped playing because I went through big life changes. Met a girl and we had a daughter (we have 3 daughters now). She really didn't understand poker at all. I used to go to work at 7am, get out at 3:30, go home and take a shower and sleep for a few hours, drive to Foxwoods and play all night till I had to leave and drive the hour back to work. I did that 2 or 3 times a week and went 2 weekends every month. the times I'd go and have losing sessions she just couldn't understand so I ended up stopping my visits to the casino. So I upped my online volume, but of course just a few months into 2011 black Friday hit and that was it for her. I didn't have a huge amount of $ online but it was enough.... So that was basically it for me playing. I took maybe 5 or 6 trips to Foxwoods over the next 9 years.

I really missed playing so last year i jumped back in. Deposited very little money on ACR to try out the micros to get my feet wet again and boy oh boy has the game changed.

I've played a total of 37,076 hands of PLO2 on ACR and damn I need a lot of work lol

I'm making this thread with the intention of posting hands and monthly, maybe even weekly graphs, and to hold my self accountable. I just got myself the FTGU PLO course and diving in.

Thanks for reading!

Comment | Matt D commented on Solver graphics

I completely agree. I even hooked my laptop up to my TV to see if i'd be able to make out all the graphics when Emty was using Monker but I still couldn't make out the cards other than what suit the cards were.
