I still feel much, much better than I ever would have in the past after a day like this. It's because I've improved myself and my life significantly in the past year - which is great. Poker's definitely aided me in that hugely. That also needs to be taken into account.

I understand swings and I'm ok with even today. The problem is that as I'm moving into this further but also getting older, I just don't see how this is enough money for me. No matter what I do. I've become more ambitious again in the past few years and I know, based on past experience, how much more I could be earning than this if I worked this hard. As said, I'll have to make some decisions but sooner than later at this point. I guess the worst case is that I go back to doing something else and just play poker as a hobby when I have a chance. I just had a nice past week, made a few hundred dollars ...say "here we go" and then boom. Downswing. They're just too frequent.

As for the hand originally posted in this thread: Villain went on to 4bet 20-30% in the two sessions after this, and then 0% in an only 86 hand session I have on him. Really? 20-30% 4bets? Same thing, constantly see the guy with 2-3 BI stacks but yet I have him only losing 2 BI's total. These guys are obviously well rolled because as I posted earlier, they clearly don't care about even 10-20 BI losses.

My other problem is my lines. All of a sudden today, this 25nl pool is filled with 22/22/10's and 18/17/11's, etc. I don't see how you can possibly keep your vpip/pfr that close in these games. A lot of these guys are folding to like 85-95% of steals. They literally never play from the blinds unless it's a 3bet. I'm already 3betting like 7-10%. Unless I just start chopping out standard calls from the BB vs 2x opens, I don't see how I can tighten it anymore as that's where the calls are coming from. My last few sessions are like 24/12/8.

April 19, 2019 | 3:15 a.m.

As usual, you're spot on and 100% correct in what you're saying. Of course I should move back down to 10nl on this site and then I guess stay @ 20nl where I haven't hit a downswing yet. Just really, the thought of grinding more 10nl is really unpleasant. I mean, do I have to take 80-96% beats in the first few hundred hands of moving up, every time? Of course not. And what's the sense of complaining? None.

For 25NL I'm playing significantly under rolled if guys are playing with 100+ BI's. I have to take aggressive shots because the time it takes to build a bankroll at 10nl is just so unbearably long that it's not even really viable for me. If I was fine with just not earning very much money for perhaps months or years more, I'd keep doing this. I need money at this point and if this isn't going to produce, I literally cannot afford to keep spending this much time on it. I'd love to but ...I can't.

I'll have to make decisions. There's nothing I ever have tried or ever will try that will be this inconsistent as far as earning. That needs to be taken into account at my age. The fact is that I consistently look like a jerk to everyone around me when I spend another few months on the game, earn virtually nothing, and they say "I told you so. Nobody ever wins in the long run". And yet I know they do.

Everyone tells me "play live poker instead" and talks about how much softer it is. It's still poker and if the RNG's online are in fact replicative of what's dealt out in a casino, losing with 90% equity regularly, going card dead for long stretches of time, and having to move down would all be part of the deal. I don't think I can legitimately go through that at 1/2 and 2/5 in the casino.

If we're saying to basically grind out 50-100 BI's for 25NL @10NL? I'd be 100 years old by the time I got there, if I ever got there. It's insane lol.

April 19, 2019 | 2:44 a.m.

I looked - It's 5+ BI's in about 1k hands today and again, all I could have done was fold out even more and just lose a little less. That's a joke. And then just watch other people literally get handed $100? That's never happened to me.

I have to move back down because of variance? That's bullshit. I'm not going through that. I honestly can't go back and grind 10nl anymore. It's such a shame that this is how it keeps working out because I do love the game and it really has helped me as a person but this seems inevitable no matter how hard I work, no matter how many hours I put in, no matter anything. And I can't play live because that requires setting aside thousands of dollars up front and I don't have that, either. I can only imagine what the average person with no hud, no studying, just playing completely recreational goes through.

Why I've stopped playing in the past is that once these downswings start, when do they stop? Nobody knows? I can't just pour money away on that. Then watch some other guy sit down, get handed multiple BI's, get up and leave. Wtf is that...

April 19, 2019 | 2:09 a.m.

I'm hanging in there but today is totally carbon copy the same as every other day when I've started winning on a site. Nothing I can do to just lose BI after BI. Nothing hits the board, everything is marginal, villain sucks out on the river 5x an hour, absolutely zero action on AA, KK, or QQ but any time it's a marginal hand, massive 3/4bet. Dozens, upon dozens of pocket pairs without hitting a set. AA loses to KK. ~5 BI loss day at 25NL and the best I could have done was only lose ~3 by folding even more than I did which is ridiculous.

Then? I see some other guy, seems like a reg. Just sits there and has fish hand him 3 stacks in 3 minutes. Literally. Out of the clear blue guys just start stacking off with Ace high (on the turn), middle pair on the flop, 99 pre. I really don't know what to say.

To work this hard at the game and start winning and then boom, every single time for years. Just absolutely, positively only allowed to make pennies. At best. Win $200? It's coming right back and there's nothing I can do about it. I don't even want to play anymore on any site now. How many more BI's can I lose today? Yet, I'd like to keep working and trying to earn money. This is my dilemma with the game every time I grind away at it and this time, I don't know what to say. Can't be having 5 BI loss days. I just can't do this if this is going to be that erratic. Again, once in a while? Fine. As often as it is? No. I can't make this little money spending 100+ hours a week on something.

The other thing I want to know is this: Is seeing 1,000+ hands of virtual card death legit? Nothing to play back with? If that's legit (it would have to be b/c it happens to me constantly online) then what are people supposed to do? Sit hundreds of hours in live poker just losing money because they don't get dealt anything? That happens to people?

Absolutely terrible day. Beats, coolers, every decision wrong, just absolutely no way to make any money. I don't have a problem with days like this, but they do occur really frequently. I've been doing it but it's difficult to put in volume once you're winning because the ridiculous loss of 5+ BI's is always right around the corner. There's never a smooth week, just a smooth day.

Basically, today is just folding out a ton of hands and taking an 82% 100+bb beat. These are the days that I have problems with, especially when they occur so often and eat into your profits so much. Once again, six weeks of absolutely killing myself on this game and there is literally not one thing I wouldn't have earned more money doing during that time. That fact is just really difficult to ignore no matter how much I enjoy playing the game.

Made 5 BI's at 25NL, and then they were just taken back with virtually nothing I could do about it. Maybe I could have folded here and saved 3/4 of one. Really, really deflating to keep going through days like that this often.

This the right play here? HJ has been 3betting and 4betting relatively light and has also 4bet folded, iirc. I mean, how can I fold this?

April 18, 2019 | 10:48 p.m.

I'm shoving because, as you see in the last several hands posted, I'm trying to simplify the game, I guess. Getting into these larger pots on the turn and river, on tricky boards, is just leading to extremely swingy results and I think I'm trying to control them too much @ 25NL.

The thing is that I was up 5BI's in 2800 hands here. Just winning clearly. Then this 2.5 BI lost session (I know, it's nothing) but still - I can't afford to stay stagnant or even go days without winning money. I just can't and this has been my problem with the game before: Can't afford to only play 10NL and just can't afford to lose 10+BI's at 25NL. It's not bringing in enough money for the amount of time I'm spending on it.

I had that 50nl all in where I was at 92% and lost. I had this AA vs KK hand today @ 25NL and lost. I had another where I was KK vs AA at 20NL and lost. Obviously you do know very well how much winning it takes to make up for that but ...jesus. I guess you guys aren't kidding when we say that winning 2 or 3 bbs/100 is an achievement. So, $50c every 100 hands @25NL? While at times losing 3 - 5 BI's in a flash? That's really difficult for me to sustain financially and mentally.

April 18, 2019 | 9:05 p.m.

Then I don't think I can continue to play these stakes. I just can't be that loose with BI's.

April 18, 2019 | 8:49 p.m.

I was just trying to squeeze out some value but know I shouldn't have. Everything went wrong this past session. Terrible board runouts in 3 and 4bet pots and then AA vs KK all in and I lose.

There's not a lot in his range here that beats me but ...what else could he be doing that with? Some of these guys are stacking off super light sometimes and it's really making some of these hands difficult. It's like they don't care about blowing off 4 or 5 BI's but of course, I do.

April 18, 2019 | 8:27 p.m.

WPN is it's own animal. There's an overaggressive style there that requires you to play a high variance game in order to compete. Running well under EV is just part of poker but you could definitely try BetOnline or Global Poker. After that many hands on WPN, I think you'll be happy with your results elsewhere.

Like, that's just disgusting play by me. Pure spew. I know he's got 33. There's absolutely nothing else this villain would be doing that with there and yet ... I just couldn't find the fold button. I clicked call as I was thinking how beat I was. /smh

April 17, 2019 | 10:23 p.m.

I've gotten so much better with this and yet still couldn't find the fold button in several spots where I knew I should have in just the past few days. It's amazing how strong the compulsion is to do something we absolutely know is counterproductive.

April 17, 2019 | 10:21 p.m.

Thanks again for all the input on this, folks. I was just reading a thread on 2p2 similar to this discussion regarding cbetting % and range. I see I do have some leaks here and there's significant profit to be made by plugging them. I'm also going to begin employing a more frequent x/r'ing strategy against opponents who cbet range 50% IP.

RIO really knows how to pick coaches. These guys are so infinitely more intelligent than the coaches you see on the other sites available in 2019. You have a new follower, Darren, and this video is exactly the kind of thing I need to keep my mental game sharp on and off the tables. Who needs therapy sessions when you have RIO and poker?

One of the things I spent the first 35+ years of my life doing is being unhappy because I hadn't "become" who I was going to be yet. By 37 now, I realize that I've always been there and that it's time to start living in the moment, embrace who I really am, and work with the set of tools I've been given. Huge, huge life and poker upswing since.

Just to update: I took a brutal beat at 50nl this morning lol. $57 effective, AKo, flop is AK2r, I GII on the flop, villain shows JJ. Turn is a J. Then, I GII for $67 with the nut straight on 67o and villain had 67o, as well. I seriously never tilted, smiled, couldn't believe that I wasn't really upset with the beat and that I knew everything was ok because that game will stay super soft and I'll make money in the long run. Still, obviously I was disappointed to some extent.

Ate and got a few hours of sleep. Woke back up and was two tabling fast (not zoom but fast standard tables, almost like zoom) 25NL and won $50 in a 20 min stretch by hitting quads twice. 92%+ (at least) beat for that much, then a split on a ~$140 pot, and then quads twice to bring it back? Now I'm really into the game lol.

In the middle of playing since last night here and things are going great. The thing is that I'm playing in a very loose, aggressive, soft game right now. Can someone please direct me to some threads and/or videos that cover this type of play? Even if they're live poker videos, if you think they're appropriate. It's a 50NL game.

Thanks
