Lockdown went well. I managed to push in 12 hours before i was starting to lose enough focus that there was no point to continue. Ended up more or less break but would have been slightly up if i had played perfectly.
Im still fine tuning my barreling spots. Both when it comes to barreling other people and calling them down. Basically i havent been doing at all in 3 bet pots earlier but with the higher preflop aggression of 100nl its more or less mandatory if i want to play optimal preflop. Also people tend to have pretty obvious bet sizing and timing tells which obviously helps a ton. Something else i tried out is the check-raising marginal hands on the river against small blocker type bets which is also a very nice and nasty tactic.
The last area where i feel like i can open up my game is starting to coldcall a bit more preflop both in and out of position. It obviously makes postflop alot trickier but that works both ways as people seem to be really uncomfortable when getting played back at postflop. Also it should allow me to open up a bit more against steals which is always handy against some of the more aggresive players.
I will see if i continute the lockdown tomorrow. Might revert back to 8h day and go back to quality. Quantity was nice for discipline but in the life long session its hardly optimal. I hate failing at set goals though. We shall see.
