Above is my graph for the last two weeks of playing poker. The first 600 hands or so was a super small sample size of me playing super-aggro and getting on the right side of luck, eventually I crashed pretty hard and really started concentrating on respecting villain raises, keeping sessions under control, etc. I was also watching the coaching kristy series and trying to apply that to my game. In turn my results began to rise and I saw a steady climb. That all came to an end after a bad play early in a session coupled with a bit of bad luck on a couple flips turned into full on tilt. This wasn't maniacal tilt. It was more like, let's to little dumb crap here and there to try to get my winnings back by being a hero tilt. The remaining hands were played the day after, and ended after I kept playing too long and eventually started playing bad because of tiredness.
I want to post the stats below from both normal play and the really bad (8 buyin) tilt session to see if any of you guys can notice any differences that might have led to my losses. The obvious one would be hand histories, but I won't post them because I can remember the hands where I just plain heroed myself into multiple large-pot losses.
I understand these are really small sample sizes but if anything can be gleaned it would still be helpful.
What can I glean from this?
I am going to play for about two hours tonight with a strong focus on balugafolding when the time comes and really looking for value. I'll obviously steal relentlessly when given the opportunity and cbet when the flops and situations call for it. Let's hope that I can keep my concentration, realize when I am losing it and sit out for awhile when I do. Grinder reminders, right?
Before I fire up the tables I'll post my poker (and fatass) goals that I made up a few days ago.
