"Overlook",thats the word i was looking for :)
Yeah,i hope rio adjust this kind of things as they are always striving to improve
I literally stopped using TT as it wasn't working at all for me so now i became used to playing in currency..something unthinkable for me in the past haha

Nice to see you posting again RIT!
I didn't see your last entry (i took some days off during that time and when i came back i may have had too much)
-ps it'd be nice if notifications wouldn't disappear unless you enter all of them...as soon as i click on the bell all is gone haha
I think it was a good idea to reset your mind and change a little bit. Going to the live arena and chilling with some online small stakes!
I used to have table tamer but i think they stopped their support and never opened it again...i may have to switch to jurojin too :)

It was nice to see that scotland won that match! It was crucial for the WC classification, loosing would have been really tough to overcome.
Regarding to non poker related topics, it's almost ridiculous how the world reacted to this pandemic. Of course people have died but meanwhile politicians have taken over the freedom of their population.
Can you imagine "overreacting" like this for the chickenpox or the measles when it was first discovered and killed some people? Sometimes globalization isn't as good as it looks.
In argentina,ofc a 3rd world country economically speaking, the lockdown/restrictions started when there were less than 100 cases per day. Many people lost their jobs,other got depressed and we had a very very bad death ration per cases after all...but on the news you could see everyday italy,spain or countries near us getting overwhelmed by covid. The fear was spread.
Now the economy of the country is the worst in our history, the gap between rich and poor is at its peak and almost 120000 have died...a day will come were people will stop tolerating politician's ignorance and corruption all over the world.
Sorry about that but im a bit angry at our politicians :)
Hope you crush those mtt's...i haven't played them too much but i remember that on the online environment, grinding a lot of hours and getting a bad beat tilted me a lot more than a single 80/20 scenario on a daily cash game.
The opportunity cost that loosing those all in represented made me have to skip the day after...although in the live arena y also played very few but binked one haha.

Nice video !
min 13:57 what do you think about a check back with 98o on the river?. Capitalizing some of the Ax that may chBack for a little bit of showdown (if villain does) or then to bluffcatch those turned into a bluff .
I can see myself turning low Ax into a bluff as sb but using a regular sizing on the river. Trying to map our Qx value region (making him fold better Ax,7x and baby 8x if he folds them too...am i too off here?). Was turning 8x into a bluff a frequency play or it's the threeshold for bluffing this river for you?
min 26:06 what did villain showed up with that raise on the river when you had 95s ?
min 29:22 About the limped pot...what did villain showed up with that raise on hero's overbet stab R (after T stab)? Ignition randomness or something interesting to take note of if he was an aggro rec ?
Sept. 2, 2021 | 5:30 a.m.
Hope you are feeling better !
No need to worry as that sample size from last update is very very small...something like10k-ish hands if i am not mistaken and not even loosing but breaking even :)
You are right that those sizings were a bit ool mate! When you size up villain can overfold and you 'll be sacrifizing some ev with the nutted portion of your range.
The sizing you choose dictates how many bluffs you can put into that range besides the value part which will be easy for the pool to find a 4b with
In case it helps, my sizings are 2.3 IP and 2.8 OOP.

Awesome results demon! Took a week off so i'm catching up on some entries you made on the journal.
It was great to follow your day to day on this challenge and getting to know your insights or point of views on a lot of topics, poker or not poker related!
Hope you keep posting and have some well deserved weeks off :)
Aug. 3, 2021 | 3:39 a.m.
Thank you RunItTw1ce but sometimes writing in english takes me sometime (googling some word i may know from hearing or even saying it but not knowing the correct grammar ) so i don't see that happening very soon haha althgough i appreciate
I really love hearing about poker and if i see someone active in this community (RIO) who tries and works hard id be following and giving support :)

That's a lot of action for just one live session!
The live arena is unbelievable soft...cheers on giving the maniacs some action.
I've been on games,as you said, of people just waiting for his 5% top range to raise or to play against them which seem absurd to me.
I haven't played live in a while with the corona situation as my main place was Uruguay (i can't travel nowadays). I used to stay the whole summer there when i started so i know more or less what you are tlaking about.
Keep crushing mate!
July 27, 2021 | 4:19 a.m.
Oh be careful on acr mate...the last thing i heard about it was joey ingram talking about bots there (althought i could be wrong or outdated, so not trying to panic you out haha).Do you know up to which stake do they have decent traffic?
Yeah ignition has it own grinding schedule haha
I'm not a volume guy nowadays but i like that you try to prop bet in order to push yourself to grinding more :). I play 2zone or 4 regs,maybe two other regs tables from another site if i'm on fire haha
July 23, 2021 | 6:59 a.m.
This post made me remember when some time ago i was interested in hearing near dead patients and their last thoughts. Things they regreted in life or things they would have done,at least, differently.
I'm atheist too but i was that kind of curious about those last few seconds and the fear everyone has about it. I found a research that said that the brain segregates some kind of substance that makes our body feel calm and relaxed (even if our body is in great pain).That's why every person that was passing that threshold and came back to life has some kind of similar "story". Feeling as going through a white relaxing light even if they were hit by a truck on this earthly state...so nothing to worry but to live a great life :)
Sorry for the randomness of my post and if i did not make everything clear as this topic it's not easy on another language haha
July 23, 2021 | 6:50 a.m.
Nice comeback to live videos...it was so action heavy that i had to go back the vid a couple of times to recapitulate the action of some hands as they were happening all over the place.
If you grind another site and want to show a vid there i'm in too as RunItTw1ce says
July 23, 2021 | 6:24 a.m.
Lol beans on toast...and i thought some of my meals were a bit improvised :)
I love that mindset,staying humble will lead you to better places than arrogance.
Chess is one of the best games out there although you may find yourself "spending" more time on it...as long as you start learning some strat it gets really engaging!
July 22, 2021 | 4:17 a.m.
Yeah Messi won the gold medal in the olympics in 2008 and he's been almost cursed since then regarding to argentina's team.
We lost two america's finals on penalty kicks (both against chile that did not attack a single time in both matches) and one world cup final against germany on aggregated time.
Definitely a +ev spot if the games were juicy despite results :)
July 14, 2021 | 8:08 p.m.
Thank you very much demon!
I enjoyed it a lot specially for Messi,he deserved a title with the national team a long time ago and destiny rewarded him big time.
Brazil and Argentina have a big rivalry when speaking about football (just there,at least for me) so winning against them and in the Maracana was something really really gratifying.
Garbage session, although nice volume...the end of the challenge must be somewhat close
July 12, 2021 | 10:10 p.m.
I got some of them wrong and some of them correct!
Tbh i kind of cheated because i was studying defending vs big bets last month so i had some euristics like thresholds of defense for some of the boards that appeared on the vid.
My studies were against an overbet on the flop so not exactly the same but at least i had some guidance
July 12, 2021 | 9:58 p.m.
Yeah! del potro and murray seemed to be the ones fighting against the big 3 back in the day although both had a lot of injuries ( delpo is even trying to get back to tennis, he tried to make his come back in tokyo olympics but he already said he won't make it)
Really hard to justify those penaltys (like the one from today with Sterling) when we have the VAR available nowadays...you can "trust" a referee and maybe the lineman to make a mistake but those together and 4 o 5 more watching in the cabin seems a lot.
Thanks mate! The game is on saturday at 21hs argentinian time.
Esperemos que messi pueda ganar algo con la seleccion,se lo merece :)
Interesting thing about simplifying strat or study....haven't watched the vid but i'm sure it's a great one (as all of his).
Nuno Alvarez used to talk about simplifying strat and has acquired a great level of depth.
July 8, 2021 | 4:30 a.m.
That's a lot of hard work ethic related to the gym!
Hope you can sustain that kind of pace....i used to go to the gym a lot but then i got to a point were i was bored even changing my routines.
Nowadays i try to do exercises with the weight of my body for strenght (something like calisthenics) and for cardio i'm in for a football match whenever i can besides tenis class haha.
I guess you are rooting for italy in case england goes to the finals! Here in the america's we got to the finals with brazil so it'll be an interesting match i guess.
Nice tip about the wooden easel! Did you get that from luke's vid?
I have it marked to watch it later :)
See you and enjoy the euros!
July 7, 2021 | 7:12 p.m.
Thanks for the reply RunItTw1ce
I play zone 500 but i don't mix stakes thats why i didn't know what you were talking about (as if mixing stakes wouldn't exist :P)...i'm not going to go to nl1k yet but i noticed some months ago that those stakes were removed from bodog.
It might be something about my bodog version because when i see tyler's vids he is still playing nl500+...anyone experienced the same thing? i used to have 1k and 2k available to play in case i wanted.
