Woah, the next session was +â‚¬80 and now I have just finished the last one. It started pretty bad, I tried to make it break even and finish it off, because I felt tired -> hand reading gets worse, can't play well without this. Here, I would like to tell you all something: I am one of these lucky ones, who don't tilt. I think it's because of my "calm" nature probably.
The whole grinding day was brilliant, one of the best in my poker career !
My stats always go: VPIP / PFR / AF / WTSD / W$SD / (Hands)
Fold to Flop C-Bet: 58
I decided to lead on the flop, because there are a lot of hands, that will come along, don't want to give any free card. Turn isn't bad, there are tons of worse hands = easy v-bet. River is OMFG / meh / lol. The only worse hands are two pair, but most of them raise on the flop. He could peel with set or with TT, but for sure he has a lot of 9x straights. I think I couldn't do anything more.
Please see the hand under this link, because it causes an error here.
I potted the flop because of the BU player - wanted to build the pot and shove the turn. However, after this action I tried to put them on range. I think that c/r'ser could have set/flush or A-high combo draw. Vs two players my 2 or 4 card draw is worthless. I am proud of my fold :)
Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is UTG with K K Hero raises to $2, MP calls $2, CO raises to $10, 3 folds, Hero calls $8, MP calls $8

Turn: ($113.93) A(3 players)
River: ($113.93) Q(3 players)
Final Pot: $113.93 Hero shows K K MP shows 9 9 CO mucks J J Hero wins $81.71 Hero wins $29.22 (Rake: $3.00)
Just because this fish I flatted this sqz - wanted to lure him to pot. You can't even imagine how scared I was about A-high flop - 99% of the time when I have KK, the have to fall...But this time flop is better. IMO c-bet 1/3 will be enough and can induce a spazz. I reached my goal.
Final Pot: $49.75 MP shows J K Hero shows 6 7 Hero wins $47.27 (Rake: $2.48)
This one is interesting. I flopped the nutz, so of course I am betting. When he c/c flop and donks flush turn, I put him on gutshots, some weak SD value hands and who knows, maybe on some flushes (there are some better ones). Anyway, I don't see any merit in raising, because I will either narrow his range to the better flushes or fold his worse hands. And ofc I want to keep them in pot and see the showdown, to make a note.
I decided to raise the flop, because he will have a real hard time calling this with AA/AK/KJ/JT and will fold 22-88/TT/JJ + other lower cards. The rest of better hands should raise 3-bet right now. When he calls on such a wet flop, I put him on weak SD value. At first, I also put him on FD, but look:
Every Ax FD has a combo draw here, so he should probably get it in on the flop also. And my line looks quite good like FD, so I decided to bluff the river. I am curious about your opinions.
I will come back to NL100 with 30 BI, I have to make 7 more buy-ins on NL50 ;)
I am a DC member for about one year, but you know, just for videos. I was a member of an another poker community, however, I decided find a new place. Hope that DC will be as good choice as the quality of movies here :D
I will share some more info about me. I am a 20 year old Polish student, who wants to improve his life and live in luxury and happiness. My main hobbys except poker are cars and Trance music. Actually I am a fresh fan of BMW, just have bought my first one (it is also my first car !), for those who are interested: it is E36 316i Compact, produced in 11.11.1999, so with new 1.9L engine, 105 HP power and 150 Nm torque :P
My actual goal is E46 Coupe, just look how beautiful it is:
And finally Trance. If I will receive some positive comments, I can post 2-3 nice songs at my every single blog update. For now 3, but I can guarentee, that I have a lot more ;)
1) Perasma - Swing 2 Harmony
2) Jo Micali - Beyond The Sea
3) Monogato - Miami Vibe (Omnia Remix)
Ok cool, now you know better who I am, time to say something about poker, so probably the most interesting part for majority of you. I am playing at NL50 @ Prima, I was almost one month @ NL100, but got downswing (and ofc some mistakes) and had to cash out some money for a car.
You can classify my to a "learner" category - I want to reach NL400/600 by playing 4 and sometimes 6 tables. I take part in poker coachings and generally try to improve my game as much as possible. This should be more than enough to convince you, that I want to be a decent mid-stakes player.
My results in September were "meh". I don't want to justify myself, but I will show you this graph:
Non SD Redline was my big leak in last few months, always about ~~ -10 bb/100. Now it is a little bit better, -4.98 bb/100. As you can see, I didn't play much this month, because I went on holiday for 2 weeks :P
But now I have an excellent schedule at university - 2 FREE days: Wednesday and Friday, so actually I am having a weekend right now :D Time for a real grind. Srsly, gratz for everyone, who has read this shit till this point.
