Post | eyecedtea posted in Chatter: Breaking free from mediocrity.

I am tired of being a decent poker player. Long gone is the pride and novelty of being a winning player at lower stakes. One year to crush.
This is my diary. Any comments are welcome, but the journey continues regardless. Goal for the next 365 days: make 150k playing live and online combined. Optimize my fitness. Start coaching next year.
Base Daily schedule:
9pm-5am play live NL at local casinos
7am-8am yoga
8am-3pm sleep
4pm exercise
6pm-8pm study poker. Have received poker coaching from RIO pro. Currently use PIO, Flopzilla and Equilab.

My best month has been 11k, I can do better.
Play mostly 1/3NL, need to start embracing the variance of playing 2/5 and higher

Will post hands and general thoughts etc... on this thread regularly. Plenty of hilarious live hand stories as well.
I have received insight and inspiration from OTB Red Baron's 2+2 thread and Dekkers RIO thread. Perhaps my thread can help someone else's journey.

Opening for that size puts your pot geometry out of whack from the start. Fold PF

Take a 5 buy in shot at a higher level. Be disciplined about not burning thru more than 5 buy ins or you will be despondent while you replenish your roll at the lower stakes.

Could also,be a missed draw and a spaz on the river. Especially at these stakes.

The more you study away from the table the calmer your mind will be at the table. Put yourself in villains shoes.... this is a fold on the river. His K combos are not checking on the turn with a flush draw out there. Only his nutted hands and FDs are check callling the turn. Fish don’t bluff into completed FDs. Looks too scary.

Finding the right frequencies is tough when you call so wide PF. Too many junk combos to deal with.

For the last two months Dekkers has been my poker coach. Unbelievably great experience. He has made the game simple and beautiful. Much more work for me to do but his guidance has increased my win rate substantially. I play mostly soft BM 1/3 NL and 2/5 NL games. Everything we go over translates into live play as well.
. I am already on my way to learning on my own. With Dekkers help, he has walked me thru the use of different programs and how to think about the game. I am now one of those players that find interesting hands in every session, then takes those hands and analyses them with Equilab, Flopzilla, Pio etc... Simply put, he has stabilized my play and taught me how to get better.
I addition to the technical aspect he is a super chill guy who is enjoyable to work with. Flexible, patient and understanding. You pick up that he really is pulling for you.
If your serious about developing your game, Dekkers is the coach for you.

Think about if you raised pf smaller. And bet flop 1/2 pot, stack sizes would not be so awkward.
You want to keep your stack to pot ratio a little bigger with drawing hands, gives you more room to maneuver post flop.

Please raise flop.
Bottom set with a flop that connects to villains range, he has so many hands that will can a flop raise.
Set over set is a cooler.

You must stack off here everytime. At this level of play people stack much lighter than higher stacks. All over pairs are in his range, plus more.

Comment | eyecedtea commented on TPGK vs 3barrell

3 bet preflop. KQ is sweet to do this, he doesnt have many premium combos that can call pf line such as this.
as played, good fold on river, villain always has us beat.
think... whag does he put us on? A king!

Shove turn. Likely ahead and many river cards are going to be difficult to play.
