Hello i would like starting playing again after a long break and I wonder if it’s still worth playing pokerstars or it’s better going with ggpoker now ?
I am playing zoom NL50.
I already have tested both and I like pokerstars a lot (convenience, I feel a lot confident with the software, I am using starscaption which is great for customizing buttons etc)
However. I have seen that now the party seems going on with GG, a lot of players now there, much more than PS. Some are even saying that pokerstars is slowly dying and everybody is moving to GG, is that true ?
I am from Belgium so, as there is no rakeback for us due to legislation so I don’t care about that part

Hello, results have been great so far I will post my graph at the end of the week.
I have starting making French YouTube cash game video for my French forum community this is great I have good feedbacks for the first video and I just released the second one.
I would like to make subtiles for you but unfortunately it would take me so much hours... it s like 3 or 4 hours for 10 min video lol to create the subtiles

Alright played my first session yesterday evening, wanted to play 50 minutes only but I was very concentrated so I managed to play 1h30 without any problem of concentration, was great playing in the zone!
One of the first hand of the challenge was a royal flush, hope that's a good sign!

Hello Peter ! Awesome video once again thanks.
I do have pio pro + Simple gto trainer.
Do you think it's a good idea to generate 184 flops like this with a checking range for OOP and training in simple gto trainer? I mean, is it still good to study this strategy on 184 flops? I guess there's some board that SB wants to bet? Or we just don't care and simplify all of that by checking 100% for OOP?
Concerning the ranges, they look like "gto" ranges as we see from the frequencies that aren't rounded, is it really well adapted to the zoom 50 pool?
Is there a way you can post the screenshots of SB and BB ranges here because we don't see the first column on the video.
Thanks in advance!

GL dude, one advice should to not look at your results for one entire week for example, then you can only focus on your work at the tables and avoid posting future negative session results which could affects you and the way you would play.

Does RIO owns a discord channel or facebook or something to discuss hands?
I would like to share hands with people from my limit (NL50) or above.
Thanks in advance!

I've seen that in 5.14 with AKo and 8.48 with KJo you double barrel 1/2 OTT, is it kind of an exploit towards the pool because not really "gto", do you recommend to use smaller bet in these spots instead of at least 3/4 in value?

Awesome thanks ! Do you think this is a good idea trying to move up the stakes playing zoom (I am struggling to beat z50) instead of reg tables ?
Is it possible to learn and be successful in zoom and moving up the stakes or we should hardly stick to reg tables?

Hi Akshar, great video, any way to get your HUD?
Aug. 21, 2020 | 7:17 p.m.
I will play this challenge on stars, z50 only 2 tabling.
The plan is to really focus on A-game, think about the hands deeply and meditate 5 minutes before every session.
I'll make some updates in this blog to track my results.
Starting BR : 2,5K USD
Here are my goals:
[ ] Increase my win rate up to 5bb/100 in 100k hands sample
[ ] Meditate 5 minutes before every session
[ ] 2 tables max of zoom
[ ] Training with aggregated reports, pio and simple gto trainer 30 min per day at least
[ ] Make a 7.5k$ BR to shot NL100
Last 140K hands played:

On your post named:
"m2 - You Should Probably Stop Playing Zoom"
I mean, you said all which needed to be say.
Why people still play a HUGE amount of hands a month at NL2 to NL25 at a very small winrate or breakeven player?
Isn't more interesting playing 2 or 3 normal 6 max tables just to focus on A-game? This is more interesting to get a higher winrate, increase skill in general to reach higher limit step by step?
Even if you decrease your volume of hands played a month but gain some BB/100, is the choice not better to stop zoom?
Why everyone is making "blogs" zoom poker? I mean, 90% of the blogs I see on twoplustwo are made of zoom players.
What do you think about that?
Can we really consider climbing stakes one by one by making a less amount of hands in a month with a bigger winrate? Is it worth?

I'm living in Belgium and so the choice of the rooms are pretty small as we only have bwin.com and pokerstars.com which are active with a large pool of players.
Recently as you certainly know bwin (partypoker) has changed a lot of things and now the export of hand history is no more available.
All the trackers are then completely useless and the only thing we can check is our BR...
So I would like to know if you thing this is still a good idea to grind on this soft (I am playing NL10-NL25) atm.
Sure this is bad as there is no more HUD and trackers to work on my game but there's some good thing on the other part:
-Other players cannot exploit us neither on their proper HUD
-It's good to only focus on the action and to take notes, I thing this is another good option instead of checking HUD everytime
-Mayby more recreational players will come
-There's a better rakeback offer
I don't know If I should give it a try or staying on Pokerstars as always where there's no rakeback and of course pretty large pool with the HUD available

I just saw your results of the month so if you're playing z200, did you really lost almost 20 buy'ins in 5k hands at the start of the month?
How do you manage keeping a good poker/motivation even when being in a such downswing.
How often do you look at your results during the month?
Any tips how to keep calm when loosing so much in a short sample like this?
I'm 7 buy'ins down since the start of the month and I'm already frustrated.
my redline is anormaly tumbling down and I really hate that...
Aug. 5, 2019 | 11:21 a.m.
Could you please tell me why using HM2? Is it better than PT4 or H2N in term of stats, filter, etc...?
What BRM do you recommend playing at lower stakes (zoom 25, zoom 50) for a regular player (40 buy-ins, 50, 100?)
July 22, 2019 | 11 a.m.
May I please get any help about that?

Are you talking about the 50$ "from the ground up" course?
I think I'll get it too if you're telling this is the that good :)
