Thanks for the comment - appreciated man. I wouldn't say I was on a good path, just a typical micro Nit who would have been stuck in the micros forever.

I think my comment in regards to kind of unexplainable, in hindsight now - I have realised how bad of a rec-fish I was and interestingly, under the CFP programme..... I am now killing 25NL with a vision to hitting high stakes by the end of the year. Quite an amazing feeling as I was playing 2NL in November.

Though I would add a little update.

Loving the CFP programme and was hard at work last month studying and making some big changes to my game. I played 30K hands last month and finished 10 Buy-ins up with a positive red line and negative blue line mainly at 25NL.

Here is my graph before joining CFP:

Here is a small sample graph from this month, yes there is some clear run good here, and the sample size is tiny! - but the main thing that sticks out for me is that my red line is positive rather than heading to the South Pole. In terms of results, I am not too bothered at the moment as I am focussed on applying the correct strategy. Most of these hands are mixed between 25 / 50 NL.

Thanks for the Comment and feedback.

I have been super lucky and been accepted into an amazing CFP programme so now my poker journey starts now and in a new direction. I cannot thank the NachosPoker team enough for believing in me. I am hoping to see the light real soon. I am super excited about repaying the faith and belief they have placed in me through hard work on my part, study and determination. I am a big believer in you 'reap what you sew' so now the hard work is down to me to realise my poker potential and demonstrate they made the right decision.

I received this news yesterday - so last night I celebrated with my good lady with a nice bottle of wine. This is huge news for me and I am so excited I will not be grinding the Micros for life.

Now time to adjust my mindset and Study !!!!!!

Thank you. My strategy is kind of mixed and unexplainable at the moment and lacks focus and direction, but has got me to here so far. I am mindful that there is some serious run good here so it cannot all be attributed to solid play. However, since being an extreme NIT at 2NL, I have seen my game develop into something close to sounds pre-flop ranges etc and have just started work with solvers to understand solid GTO concepts, but struggling how to turn this into an applicable strategy.

I am hoping to secure some coaching or a CFP programme in the near future to speed up my progress up the stakes at pace. I feel without this, I will bounce around 25 / 50Nl for the next few years.

Hi all,
I am currently enjoying my essential membership and trying to improve my game. There are some killer graphs and results so feel a bit of a noob posting my results. However, you got to start somewhere. Hoping to update my progress weekly.
I feel like I have been running hot for the first 50K hands and looking for some advice really from the RIO community grinders and sharks. I have posted my 2NL, 5NL, 10NL graphs below and have around $630 bankroll. I have run hot at 10NL and thinking of taking a punt at perhaps 16NL or 25NL but don’t want to mistake a heater for beating a few stakes and false confidence. Fully appreciate my sample size is mega small. It is just I am mindful of the rake being harsh at 10NL and wonder if I should take a shot a little higher or grind out a few thousand hands more at 10NL? If I commit to a little higher, I am quite comfortable losing 10 – 15 buy-ins
Appreciate the feedback. One thing I am trying to work on is opening up my ranges, figured some of my stats are rather nitty?

Never really pushed past 2NL or took poker seriously. However, figured I would put some time into study and trying to catch a slice of the pie. Figured while registering as an essential member, why not track my progress - this will keep me motivated.

I started with 2NL, which i found to be a punt fest with a few 2NL Regs farming the whales. Managed to grind enough Buy-ins to take a shot at 5NL.

A few thousand hand at 5NL, up around 10 Buy-ins and running well.

Hand History | zeraxer posted in NLHE: River Shove or Fold?
Blinds: $0.01/$0.02 (6 Players) BN: $2.39
SB: $3.43
BB: $2.83
UTG: $2.31 (Hero)
MP: $3.14
CO: $2.06
Preflop ($0.03) Hero is UTG with Q A
Hero raises to $0.05, 4 folds, BB raises to $0.14, Hero calls $0.09
I had no information on Villain. I decided to flat villains 3bet and play IP with my UTG range.
Flop ($0.29) 7 5 4
BB bets $0.09, Hero calls $0.09
I called his 1/3 pot bet, figured his range had more over cards than pairs and maybe should of re-raised to price him out of flush draws?
Turn ($0.47) 7 5 4 5
BB bets $0.30, Hero calls $0.30
Villain bets larger on the turn, it felt bluffy - not sure if my call was the right play. I was planning to Jam on most rivers to push him of AK.
River ($1.07) 7 5 4 5 3
BB bets $1.32, Hero raises to $1.78 and is all in, BB folds
Villain over bets the river leaving 50BB behind. Decided to shove and blast him of AK. Maybe his over pairs are betting smaller for value?
Final Pot UTG wins $3.58
Rake is $0.13

Yea thank you :) - I am going to work on opening up my range and look for spots to 3Bet more. Think I have been avoiding tough spots, epic fail.

Current Stakes: 2NL
Hands: 47,000

I deposited $50 on Stars 4 weeks ago and decided to delve into the world of cash tables. Generally played MTTs on other sites in the past, recreational play. I purchased from the ground up course and have learned lots from Pete, these video's were a real eye opener for a noob like me.

Rather than be results orientated, dictating when I move up / down stakes. I set myself a challenge to play 100K hands at each level before moving up in stakes. I have an addictive personality and see no issue with grinding out the hands on a daily basis. Anyway, figured I would track my progress and share my results.

I have played very Nitty over 45K hands. Largely because I have focused hard on table selecting to find the fish and whales and tightening my range which seems to be working well. I know my game is weak, but I joined this site to learn along the way and develop as I progress up the stakes.
