Hi guys, like the title says, i'm gonna get to NL5000, hopefully quickly, a little background, i'm from argentina, i'm 19 yo and i've been playing poker for a little bit more than 1 year, started with fullring at nano stakes with a free $50 promo, then made the switch to 6 max when i got to NL10 and then after several NL200 shots in 6 max i tried HU and obv fell in love, climbed from NL50 to NL200 with the help of walkoflife as a coach, then got another coach and got up to NL600, not bumhunting, and then.... i got a foot surgery witch frustratingly enough was to fix a previous surgery that hadn't healed properly :P
The main problem of the surgery was that poker obsesion+ having to stay at home to recover turn me into a bit of a hermit haha so after i was ok i started just bumhunting only 1 session per day so i could do other stuff and not focus as much on poker, and that's what i've been doing for the past 2 months, mostly just bumhunting NL200-NL600, taking it easy and doing other things that i like. but now it's...... OBSESION TIME AGAIN!!!!!!! so i'm gonna stop bumhunting, start to not only accept regs on my tables but also sit in their tables, looking to improve fast and move up quickly, obv i'll analize my game a lot and stuff like that. i'll start just playing NL200 regs, always accepting them on my tables (or almost always cuz i might be playing with a bunch of fish already) and 1 session per day i won't even open tables, i'll just sit in some random reg's table and ask for 2 tables.
playing against a NL100 reg to get the ball rolling:
I'm pretty sure i had an edge on him, he was only playing 38% oop and i was minraising 100%, he was calling most 3bets and then calling 100% of cbets but folding 70% to turn barrel so at first i was 3betting just for value but when i realized this i started to 3bet wider and pretty much always bet/bet flop and turn, he was playing tight OTB, etc i mean he had a bunch of leaks like that and i think i had an edge imho.
He had a lowish WTSD, i had raised only 1 of his cbets in 3BP, i don't think he's just flatting a FD oop and i rep the flush well, what do you think?
neat hand imo, i had a high c/r and a somewhat low "lead against missed cbet" so imo he's not checking an A so double overbet against cap range obv (i overbet quite a bit as a bluff and for value/thin value) what do you think?
also played another session against NL200 reg, ended 4 buy ins down, he runned really hot but he was also good, put me into a couple of WTF?? spots.
