Has only been couple of days since my last update but since i'm riding a nice wave of upswing so far in june i feel a little bit moar like posting compared to wat has been there most of teh year so far.
Only 7 days into june but i'm already over 6k up and feeling that i'm playing very very well for teh first time since ages. Cannot really explain why but last sessions i could focus so much better compared to anything i can think of. Running good obv. helps a ton but still i'm supersatisfied.
Might've found something which was some sort of a leak which worked out fine 3 years ago but which just doesn't work today for me: putting in volume no matter what. Since i'm not doing SNE i should not really put volume in when i don't need to. It just doesn't make sense. Thought alot about it over teh last months and will now definitely try to play shorter but moar focussed sessions and more of them. So instead of playing 3 big ones i will try to play 4-6smaller ones and see how it goes. And i will not focus on how many hands i play in a certain session.
The big problem is once i'm down i try to get back to even and can play for hours without a stop - the game i'm bringing in those sessions is a decent B-Game at teh very best. Sometimes that's enough (if u still somewhat running decent even though you lost a bunch) but most of teh time especially in todays games it's not.
An even bigger problem though might be if you are up a bunch and force yourself to continue playing bc "you run good so why stop". While this is true i switch to my B-Game as well pretty quickly which results in folding moar and try to keep winnings or in some stupid stack-off's bc "i'm not losing flips" or "i'm not folding my AQ against tis moron". I will really try now to stop my session teh moment i realize i'm switching to my B-Game and losing focus and not force myself to play another 400 hands because i wanted to play 1.5k and am only at 1.1k.
While all that sounds pretty sweet in theory practise might be another story but i have to check it out to know moar.
Games were quite decent last days as well with teh 100 billion promo around teh corner so i hope i manage to dodge some parties this weekend and do nothing besides grinding, gym and good nutrition...
Finally i'm able to post some graphs which don't look like aids so here they are:
This is teh month so far, basically 3 good days and one breakeven, Played very high volume first two days but moar and moar i doubt that volume is really teh answer to my question.
This is teh one from today. Most likely my strongest day this year, not moneywise but playingwise 100%. Don't think in 5years of poker i ever had a positive redline over 5k hands which comes mainly from playing alot moar focussed than before.
Played a bunch of interesting hands as well of which two are those:
Riverdonkovership by Donk
- this one was quite std up to teh river where it became insanely ugly. Lotta people would say snap but guy was not insanely retarded plus he instashoved that river while donks take at least a couple of seconds before they decide it's time to bluff in general.
- probably teh most non-standard hand for my standards i played this year. Pre is questionable itself, you can 4bet/fold it and have an easy live, you can fold it and focus on better spots or you can click teh call button and try to maximise EV. Flop is not good but not terrible either with 2 over and a nice backdoor so i decide to peel and hit or try to take it away later. No reason to bet that turn and when he checks behind turn i might even have teh best hand and should get him from alot of stuff on teh river. River is where stuff gets exciting. I make my halfpot bluff and expect to take it down almost always but he timebanks and finally minraises. At this point i cannot put him on a single value hand he can have that is playing this way and decide to go for it... worked out and i showed him :P
That's it for now, hopefully post doesn't doomswitch me and month continues a little bit like that...
