Of course almost impossible to estimate. Average reg profile is better at 500z obviously, but there is lots of deviation in skill level. Some regs are extremely good and play bigger stakes as their main game. And some are not so good.

Do you have massive sample on both environments so that you are able to compare results? Its quite likely that winrate differences can be explained by variance only.
I have never played in an anon pool so im not sure if i can answer to that. But i wouldnt change my game massively until i have concrete proof that some players are countering my strategy.
Vs players that try to counter your strategy you can either re-counter them or try to play more theoretically solid game.

Interesting to notice that even though graph looks like pretty variance free there is couple of 100k hand breakeven stretches. But that really shows how crucial it is to have big sample size before drawing any conclusions.

Im pretty sure i will still put some hours in. But i hit my volume goal for the month so time to post results.
Pretty much the same stuff as last month. Checked results once i think around 15k hand mark or so. Other than that things went really smooth.
As you can see still running pretty hot. Its nice to start new stake with an upswing rather than immediate 30bin downer. But its coming in future no doubt about that, so i have to be mentally prepared.
Games are still an absolute madhouse. Also its quite easy to put volume since there isnt that much to do irl because everything is closed. So plan is to grind it out now when games are good and take longer breaks on summer. But of course keeping stuff in balance so that there is no risk on burning out and having to take long breaks because of that.

- Me+study structure? Come on. But maybe start from most common spots / lines and go from there. And everything doesnt have to be perfect to get things started.
- I dont think its fair to start shouting screennames while not sharing mine (even though many do know my sn). But lets that there are some good regs for sure and some not so good.

Hmm hard to say. Maybe not trusting your findings in game. Its so easy to convince yourself in game that on this exact board, vs this villain etc. MDA doesnt apply. Thats always a huge assumption and should be backed up by something, other than your fear.

Id say take simple notes on common spots that come up regularly. With fish note what sizings they use with different parts of their range. For example its quite common to see funplayers bet small with bluffs and big with value. Also figuring out what they donkbet is really valuable. But just keep things simple. Ive done that mistake of taking too detailed notes that you cant really use effectively in game.

Yes and no. I reset my stacks after every hour or so, so that i dont know how my session is going results wise. 500z ive been ratholing around 200bb deep if i remember to do so.
Cool thing about playing deep is that hardly no one knows what to do. :D

Time to book yet another month. Was too curious and checked results earlier than i planned, so i should do month update here as well.
Safe to say i managed to run way too hot. Kinda shame that it ended a bit before the end of month, wouldve been pretty nice to book +30k month. But i take this nevertheless.
About quality of my game, overall i think i played ok. Nothing special, just basic abc poker. Im disappointed that i let my results affect my mindset. Was really focusing on short term results on these few last sessions and might even done some mistakes because of that. Really unprofessional and again reminds to me why checking results is just poison for me.
Games overall have been so juicy, especially this last week. Well probably anyone that has played lately has noticed that. Now is really great time to increase your volume, if you are capable of doing that. Not really advising suddenly double your daily hands and see what happens. But slowly add few more hands to your daily handgoal and work from there. Not sure if im going to do that, there is already added challenge from playing higher stakes that im used to.
This post ended up sounding quite negative, even though i managed to book my best month ever. But overall im pretty happy how im working on poker overall. Also im surprised that im able to play confidently my a-game at 500z, even though i just started there. Of course sunrun helps but still i have confidence that i can do ok there, even on meaningful sample.
Anyways, that all for now. Gl at tables (:

First of all i try to search other sites to play on.
But if im forced to play there id probably just play a bit tighter vs regs, but wouldnt change that much. Theres lots of solutions out there with different rake structures that tell how you should play.
I think rake is usually just an excuse to play nitty and avoid challenging / marginal spots. For example when i played 100z i played with over 30% VPIP and my wr was something like 7-8bb/100.
