Played a little bit NL, but it's not my game. Started at PLO4, but moved up when I felt I was playing by best game and I was winning (also a little bit when I was stuck, I'm trying not to do that anymore... :-s ) Lost the most at PLO100, where I should not have played as my bankroll was never >$700, but the tables were good and I was shortstacking so... nothing bad with a little gamble from time to time... I put most of my volume at PLO4, but it was where I run worse, so in the last days I didn't even play it, even if my roll was small... A lot of rake, but I got a good part of it back, so it's ok. I'm actually sorry that I only deposited $40, Ladbrokes is really great, the software is better than other poker rooms, the games were fishy and the support was fast.
I only lost when playing with >150 bbs, which really isn't my game, so I guess I should just quit a table when I hit 150 bbs, I am now playing full stacked and quitting with 200 or 250 if the table is really good.
This actually made me think that I should 3bet more with high connected cards, even if ss. I'm still now sure about ace gap wraps, because if one gets 4betted it's mostly by aces and the equity is terrible. This is one of the spots that kinda gets me into trouble/lose money/not know what to do.
This are the hands that I lost most money with. Middle gap wrap I guess are not that good because they often flop wraps that are dominated... I should also play less pocket jacks and tens, eventually just overlimping in lp, if they don't have connected/suited cards.
Quite strange that I lost money playing 6handed, would have expected to love more when shorthanded (3-4 players), but whatever....
It's logical to make money on the button, but it really amazed me that I'm losing that much from the SB (LOL with a 37.7 VPIP I guess it makes sense). In the future I will try to tighten up in the blinds, because it also sucks to be OOP :(
Last one :) I made most money with a flush, full house and straight, which makes a ton of sense in PLO. Would have expected to get more with sets, but I think I lost a lot in some set under set situations, so I shouldn't play medium pairs to set mine or shouldn't stack off with middle/bottom set. I lost a lot with 2 pair and one pair. I guess I overplay aces a lot (used to overplay kings too), so I have to be more careful, especially with big stack sizes.
Next should be big/interesting hands, but I fell like that's so difficult to do because I have to analyze my play and reveal my mistakes :-s
