fresh start and a new look at poker

so after a week of reading mental game of poker after the beating I took last weekend i am taking a new approach to poker trying to avoid getting upset and tilting

there was a few thing i had decided before i sat down how to approach the game they were

1) start at 8pm instead of 6pm as i get tired and end of session and make silly mistakes

2) every 45 minutes review how i am playing

3)eat at about halfway thought session

4) think about preflop/position/odds and mental strategy 

overall i felt that my play was a B+ A-

I didn't make many mistakes in the first few hours at all only 1 comes to mind that was being aggressive with a draw against a calling station.

took a big hit during the 5th 45 minutes session with AK off

utg raises to 20 4 callers

hero raises to 105

PFR shoves for 525

maniac then re-shoves for 600ish 

hero snaps calls

I think I would folded to the PFR shove just because I was at best flipping but with the maniac getting involved it was cost me 400 to 1200ish so there was plenty of dead money in the pot as it turned out PFR had KK and maniac had K 10 diamonds flop was 899 2 spades so I had an back door flush draw turn was 3 spades so on the river was any spade any ace river was brick but was not that tilted which kinda surprised me.

I went back to my mental game theory took my deep breaths and injected logic that I was happy to get my money in as I was getting good odds to win the pot and that it was only variance. Straight away i was back playing my game like nothing had happened which really shocked me as usually I would be tilting hard and thing would go off the rails was only down 100 from original buy in of 500 so was in a pretty good moved after losing a 1700 size pot.

got a big unlucky with AJ vs AK i think i played it well trying to trap and when i hit the river i was going to pay him off more often than not with 2 pair

got straight back into the game again and chipped up too 1200 K2 suit hand

mp raises to 10 i am in the BB with K2 spades after 5-6 callers I call

Flop 2 7 6 2 spades i bet out 35 1 callers

turn is a K 

hero bets out 75

villain repops it too 275 hero flats calls I think i should probably re pop it here as i am beating a lot of villains range but i elect to just call

river is a Q spades and hero shoves for 575 i thought villain is super strong here and would call in hind sight a bet of 400 would get called after he river 2 pair so i think i missed value there but is hard to villain on range since he plays so wide and aggressive

other major hand for the night was A9 hearts

lots of limps hero is on button with A9hearts i elect to limp i was temping to raise but decided not too thinking that there was some people waiting to 3 bet

both blind check 

flop is 10 7 6 2 hearts

ep bets out 35 

4 callers

hero raises it up too 225

loose guy calls for 70% of his stack 

maniac goes all in for 450

Lp folds 

hero calls 

Ep calls for rest of stack

pot is approx 1500

turn is 9 

river is a brick

maniac show 8 5 off for turns straight

other guy show A7 

so was a bit disappointed that i lost that one as i had heaps of equity on the flop going into that one

but again i didn't tilt hard that i usually would as i was happy getting my money with the equity I read my statements about variance take a deep breath then inject logic and moved on and continued playing. i guess with the fact that i was still up at the time might have played some fact in it. but it has shown that i can fight thought the tilting stage and play great poker straight after taking a big pot beating.

i was getting a little loose late in to the last few hours nothing too crazy trying to steal straddle of 15 and cold call with a 3 bet to 105 with 9 J off then Sb re popping it 225  i should of just given up there and then but elect to call.

I think i called as i was not really thinking that well as was getting tired and start to level myself but thinking that the villain know that i am trying to steal so that he will try to steal himself. hero calls

flop come 10 3 A

villain bets out 300 or so 

hero hollywoods and folds 

villain shows JJ

villain ask what i had i said QQ didn't believe me but i made a convincing story of that i wasn't beating anything KK,AK,AQ and TT had me crush

and this point they play last 3 hands i fold out and end up booking 42.7 win after nearly 8 hours of play.

I could of been up over 3k or more if i got lucky. 

I think that this session i play some of the best poker i have in a log while as i set out goals that i wanted to achieve before i played and that i did pretty well to do that

1) start at 8pm instead of 6pm as i get tired and end of session and make silly mistakes.

well starting at this time was great as i usually get tired about 1.30-2ish and struggle but today was playing up too 3 and was feeling great the games that start at 6 are not that great usually will have to review this every now and then

2) every 45 minutes review how i am playing

was a great, was giving my mind a rest even if it wasnt every 45 on the dot. great to review the last session rather than reviewing the whole night

3) eat at about halfway thought session

i didnt do this and maybe that effected me in the end as i was getting a little peckish

4) think about preflop/position/odds and mental strategy 

I think this is what i got out of the session most i was thinking about preflop a lot as this is an area that cost me money the most as i get in to tough spots i should not really be in. I thought i play position overall well there are time that i made a few loose limp utg or Ep and there was a lot of Loose button limps that didnt really do well.

the mental strategy was a great thing to see work in action and will become a staple part of my game. not tilting after loosing big pots feels great and is something that i can get used too but will have to keep working on

overall i think i got a lot out of my session even thought i was up at some point 700-800 i was playing great poker and learnt a lot about me, I will have to keep review my play and keep studying.

231This conversation's grammar Air Jordan Retro Sale was defined in 1982 by Jon Postel, Chaussure Nike Air Max Pas Cher one ofthe Internet's heroic forefathers, who used to literally run Nike Shox Cheap the most im-portant servers on the scarpe nike net Nike Air Pas Cher under his desk at the The official UGG University of SouthernCalifornia, back in the paleolithic era.

Now, imagine that you hooked up a mail-server to an IM session. Youcould send Coach Bags On Sale an IM Cheap Michael Kors Tote Bag to the server that Nike Roshe Run said "HELO littlebrother.com.se" andit would reply with "250 mail.pirateparty.org.se adidas store Hellomail.pirateparty.org.se, Descuentos Nike pleased Adidas Shoes Discount Marketplace to meet you." In other words, you couldhave Nike Kyrie the same conversation over IM as you do over SMTP. With Nike Air Max Sale theright tweaks, the whole mail-server business could take place Louboutin Wedding Shoes inside of achat. Or Nike Shoes Online a web-session. Or anything else.

This is called "tunneling." You put the SMTP inside a chat "tunnel."You could then put the chat back into an SMTP tunnel TOMS OUTLET if you wanted tobe really weird, tunneling Cheap True Religion Jeans the tunnel in another tunnel.

In fact, longchamp bags on sale every Internet protocol Adidas Originals Superstar is susceptible to this TOMS STORE process. It's Pandora Store Sale cool,because it means that if you're Cheap Nike Huarache on a network with only Web access, youcan tunnel your mail over Air max dam it. You can Official Toms Shoes Outlet tunnel Pandora Official Website your favorite Timberland Outlet P2P Nike Online Store over it.

You can even tunnel Xnet — which itself is a tunnel Nike Air 90 for dozens of ugg clearance proto-cols Nike Air Women — over it.

Domain Name Service is Christian Louboutin Shoes Outlet an interesting pandora beads and Discount Ray Ban Sunglasses ancient Internet protocol,dating back to 1983. It's the way that Pandora Store your computer converts acomputer's name — like pirateparty.org.se — Michael Kors Outlet to the Cheap Air Max Trainers IP number that com-puters actually use to talk to each other over the net, like Itgenerally works like magic, even though it's got millions of moving parts— every ISP runs a DNS Toms Factory Outlet server, as do most governments and lots cheap uggs ofprivate operators. These DNS boxes Nike Air Sneakers all Adidas Superstar Sale Online talk Adidas Soccer Cleats Cheap to each other all the time,making and filling requests to each other so no Bottes Ugg Femme Pas Cher matter how obscure thename is you feed to your computer, it will be able to turn Nike Air Max Cheap it into Cheap Nike Free Run anumber.

Before DNS, there was Air Max Kopen the HOSTS file. Believe it or not, this was asingle document that listed the name and address Nike joggesko of every single computerconnected to the Internet. Every computer had a copy of it. This file waseventually too big to move Boost Yeezy Sale On Line around, so DNS was invented, Soccer Boots Outlet nike and ran on aserver that used Scarpe Air Max to Michael Kors Clearance live under Jordan Shoes Air Jon Postel's desk. If the cleaners knockedout the plug, the entire Internet lost its ability to nike shoes find Nike Free Run 5.0 Womens itself. Seriously.

The thing about DNS today

It was a board-room table in a Hugo Boss Sale small room with a mirror down onewall. I knew that room. I'd sat New Nike Shoes in that room, while Severe-Haircut wo-man Nike Factory Store had made me speak my password aloud. There were five Nike Air Max Goedkoop comfort-able chairs around the table, each with chaussure basket homme a comfortable person, all in DHSuniform.

The others Yeezy Men were new tome. retro jordans for cheap They all watched a video screen at the end of chaussure adidas pas cher the table, on whichthere ugg factory outlet was an infinitely more Mens Nike Air Max familiar face.

He was the man on the screen. He Abercrombie and fitch store was talking, and everyone else wasfocused on his screen, everyone taking notes Pandora Outlet as fast as they UGG BOOTS FOR WOMEN could type,trying to look smart.

"— ADIDAS NMD SALE ON LINE say that Air Nike they're angry with authority, but we suivre un envoi need to ugg store show thecountry that it's terrorists, not the government, that Canada Goose Womens Coats they need to blame.

Do you understand me? The nation does Nike Pas Cher Femme not love that city. As far asthey're concerned, it is a Sodom and Moncler Sale Gomorrah of fags and atheists whodeserve to Nike Shoes Sale Store rot Boutique Ugg in hell. The only reason the country cares what they think233in San Francisco is that they had the good fortune to have been blown tohell by some Canada Goose Online Store Islamic terrorists.

Ange and I sat nike sneakers on the edge of the bed, looking at the screen. Angereached Moncler Jackets Discount Marketplace out and Nike Air Jordan 11 started the video again. We watched zapatillas nike baratas it. It was worse thesecond time.

I tossed the keyboard aside and got up.
