heya Serpang, um ive been all over the place lately with my game but i am still min cashing just nothing big. Was felted final table yesterday with AA. Just to let you know how ive been running.

No i dont always make videos because they take up so much space if you record 3 hours of mtt play. I used the cam program in dozn01's video thread. I called it quickcam but it may be hypercam2. Sorry if i caused confusion.

I am using Camtasia right now when recording but its a trial so i may have to either pay or go back to hypercam.

I would not continue with that program and try the link dozn01 or icefingers posted.

Thanks for dropping in.

Woot Woot.

I was in such a foul mood but today was the turnaround. I should say again the cards were heavily against me and no hand was safe. Id flop trip 8's with 88 in the hole and my villain would have nothing but overs and suited and they would perfect perfect. Flush. A hand that likely shouldnt even be in the play but then getting there. Was tough. I couldnt focus on percentages in the heat of the beats. I was tilted.

So today i fully expected i would once again run into beats. I had fully expected if anything could be gained today it would be learning how to lose without getting tilted. I join my warm-up 50 cent mtt and twenty minutes in i get QQ and face an allin. I make the call and i face Ax. A on the flop and im out. Meh. Thats understandable in that stake. Right when it happens i am loaded onto my next games table.

the $400 gtd Dazzler rebuy. I enter and my first hand get QQ. Hmm maybe my luck is better today after all i think. First hour goes by alright and im sitting around 7500 after addon at break. Second hour i get below 2k. blinds are pretty cut throat so i face one flat call from early and dive. Button calls my raise and the limper gets out. AKc. I cringe. Ive been looking at the percentages lately more then the flops in those spots since merge places them up in allins. I look to the villain and booooooom. 0% omg i just flopped quads. It just felt so good to have that 0% up on the screen. More importantly i took that hand to exclaim the run bad was over and i had weathered the storm.

Still super short stack at 5k it wasnt easy but all i did was wait and shove. wait and shove. Holding was glorious. I almost even became confident again in my play (when u run bad play less hands. all im gonna say). I ended up hu but fell short and took 2nd.

Then right as that ended i was feeling a break but the 100 seats to the 100k started up. 4.5 hours later i was in 30th when the 101st player dove allin with KK and promptly felted by someone with questionable intellect and a j9os.

Hands down way easier compared to the other two. Maybe super hud was a bit of a special case as its not yet used on merge but pt3 was almost work to figure out.

I am currently only using hm2 for money tracking in sessions and in cash primarily. for mtt's i do use the hud but since im not sure how to process the info yet i dont use it other then to giggle at the awesome puppets they put up.

------------
Oh also ive been recording but w\out a mic right now i dont see much point in rendering them and uploading them. Ill be recording this match for my own purposes and maybe ill speed up hands im not in and showcase the ones im in and upload that.

Really recording and then watching the game again is really beneficial.

Thanks for the encouragement Mac!!!!

Ill be keeping a brief synopsis of my play in the 100k sunday game today.

first hand i made a super bluff with K10 diamonds on a river to put me up to 6k early.

AQ cutoff raise to 90 pick up utg limper for a call. flop gives A i cbet, he tags. turn 2. He opens for 160 i reraise to 380. He flats. he cbets the river for 160 i call he shows a2

KK utg+1 i 7 bet with next to act and ends in allin. AA for villain door card K A 10. omg. though i had my suspicions. QJ chop the pot. phew.

------------
blinded down to 3900 and find 89c in my hand in high jack. open to 450 and get flatted by bb. flop comes k Club k Heart 10 Club . bb bets 600. i bet pot. rake the pot and sit with 5100 and fingers crossed.

------------
JJ in the bb. early position player calls along with sb. i raise the 75/150 blinds to 600 and both fold. i show. Havent other then that time.

button same rotation get A10 spades and open to 300. both blinds fold.

------------
77 in BB. button raises the 100/200 blinds to 500. i flat flop comes KQ low. i check. he cbets i stall and show. he shows right card K.

Get AJh in SB and early position comes in for a limp. i raise to 500 and bb calls. flop comes KJ10. i check to raise any bet from bb. bb bets 600 i bet pot again for 2800. he folds.

<i>ive been folding much more hands but i only comment on hands i play. ive folded A10 a couple times and low pp to a raise kind of thing.</i>

------------
sitting with 6380 right now.

------------
2nd Break just came. sitting with 5930 and an ante now present. Blinds will be hitting me right after break. Plan if any has been only to play good hands in even better spots. If i dont manage to pick up some action in those hands the plan will adjust as the blinds continue to raise.

Mega tight table with some weak spots. The word is out that im not coming into many pots and two or three players have 14-15k but nothing too crazy. Most are in my range.

------------
j2os bb. loose player flats in ealry. sb comes along. flop 783. i check after sb and early autochecks. turn 2. sb checks (tight player) and i bet 575 into a 950 pot. both fold.

------------
150/300 i get 88 in early-middle position. i open to 900. button dives. I fold.Next hand he dives again and has KK. gets felted by 1010 str8 on river.

sitting with 4780.

------------
55 in bb. early opens to 700 and gets insta called by next to act. button dives (button came to table with 1k and after 6 allins in a row with Q high now has 10k). I fold but i would have called the 400 more. early snap calls for 9k. early has QQ vs button Q10. Q on turn.

77 sb a hand later with a raise from hijack to 700. i flat and so does bb. all spades and im first to act with a spade. I bet half pot and with only a k low low on flop i take the pot.

Next hand get 99 and call a raise to 700 again on button with 99. flop comes j10 low and villain cbets 1/2 pot. i fold.

Sitting @5k

------------
1010 utg +1 open for 900 and take it.

------------
AQ sb. middle position min raises to 600. folded to me i reraise to 1200. Im torn between diving because im a fish here or str8 folding and come up with the reraise. He dives. Okay now what should i do? I can give the guy a bunch of hands most all of which kill me. I call. maybe its a race. 88....

Flop comes AQ5 blank blank.... Boooyaaaa. Sorry if my play offends the better players but im stoked.

Sitting with 11k.

Next hand i get AK blinds 2/400 i raise to 1200 and rake the pot. was with the mind i was betting into a looser part of the table with big stacks.

11935.

------------
AJ small blind. same guy as the AQ hand. min raises. i stall and flat. bb folds. flop comes KQx. i bet 1200 and take the pot.

------------
AJ middle position suited. same guy as before has been min raising everyhand. min raises utg. i reluctantly reraise to 2400. Im more worried about anyone else and the resulting mis read on my hand resulting in a 4 bet, then i am of the villain. folded by all

14585

------------
AQ on button. utg limp next to act raises to 1255. i fold. utg flats and flop is blanks 8 high. checked down AK by raiser QJ by limper. AK rakes pot.

------------
AQ button after break. short stack opens to 2k on 3/6 blinds. i think of reraising but decide ill just flat and move on flop if its the two of us. it is and flop brings Kxx. he acts first and dives for 3k. I call and hope im ahead. JJ. Turn Q and the hits keep on coming.

Im such a fish but i know im in over my head so i made the call to see 5 cards when i flatted so long as it was him and me.

------------
18665

------------
gosh darn the guy is back min raising and i get dealt AJ. i reriase and to 2400 and he falts. flop comes 8 high two hearts and me with clubs. i cbet and he flats me. I bet pot for 9k on turn and he thankfully goes away.

very next hand i get A9 in sb and with 4 callers i decide to join. who knows. i could trip over nines. flop comes AK9. first to act i open for 1200. utg +1 flats. rest fall away. Turn 9. i check. he opens for 3k and i reraise pot. silly move and he folds.

sitting with 28k.

------------

------------
table change and i decide to hide my stars and accolades since most seem to.

KK on button. player b4 me opens the 500/1k blinds to 2400. i reraise to 5750. blinds fold and he flats. flop comes 2 Heart 3 Heart 2x. He acts first and dives. I call and feel so so. A10 hearts. XX no heart and im felt the player and take his 16k.

sitting 48804.

------------
not much to report. sitting with 38k after going thru 1/2k blinds. close to the money. will be maintaining radio silence for the next bit as i try and look for spots if it comes to that.

------------
76/124 top 117 itm. O lord i think id fold AA right now..... since this is a freeroll for me a min cash is preferable to going in ahead.....

save my AA till 116 are left o please...

------------
haha easy Aj fold to a 20k dive

------------
So i made it into the money and then continued folding. I got AQ and faced a 7k raise by middle position when i was on button. with 30k and a tight image i reraised allin and found myself facing AK. two hearts on flop gave me 51% turn Q.

Next hand i played was my last. with 44 in sb utg+2 limped. i called the 2500 with 24kish. bb checks. flop comes 1042. i check. bb raises 7500. other guy calls. i call. turn is 8 and gives the board two hearts. i check and bb send 7500 out again. other guy calls and i shove my remaining 14k into middle.

bb and utg+2 both call. river is a heart. bb dives for his remaining 40k and other guy folds. Villain shows A3 hearts.

Went out in 53rd spot. Overall i played the game exactly like i played the freeroll to get in. Just waited and played big hands only. If you read this then you know i got llucky on more then one occasion but i did fold many other hands along the way.

Well after yesterday my hopes are high for today. Reasonably high anyways. Since tomorrow is Valentines day (Be nice to your Woman remember Blink Ive decided to post my monthly update a day early.

Here is my first month of play. Starting from 0$. Dec 14-January 12.



The 2nd month went as follows.

Really fantastic achievement Micro Big Smile Big Smile , how can you do that ? almost everyday you win prize, wow...How many MTT do you play everyday ? I really want see your complete game via video, if you have please share with me for learning Big Smile Big Smile

Do you start play poker 10 years ago ? and.... how complete story ?

The complete video is over 5 hours Serpang. I couldnt possibly upload it all and expect anyone ever to watch it completely. I did how ever make a editted version with hands i played. It runs under 30 mins and its just finished so ill add it here.



As for the cashes daily. Its like fishing mate. You catch nothing without a lure in the water. In short i play 8$ worth of games a day. One of which is 3$ so thats 6 games. If i min cash in any i almost cover my expenses sans rebuys. This schedule has been one ive followed since my first major cash. Not the freeroll win but my first cash. Until then i was playing just the freerolls and the plo games plus a 1$ deepstack game as "taking my shot".

I started playing poker young enough and with it blowing up in north america in 02/03 i found myself playing almost nightly with friends i lived with. My biggest issue has always been BRM. when i first started on Stars i played on a friends account and he would give me half. He always told me i was a good player and as he was already i was confident in my self. I would win money. he would ship it to my account "inhumane" and i would quickly blow it all. Looking for the big score it was out of my head to even try and steadily build.

So if you ever go back to the blogs beginning you'll see i am trying to break the habit of being a perpetual loser and start making baby steps towards profitability. I now think of it like "100 pennies make a dollar" but if you keep throwing pennies away you never achieve that dollar.

Sorry, i wish i could explain better sometimes....

Here is my first month of play. Starting from 0$. Dec 14-January 12.



The 2nd month went as follows.


So ive been playing wuth some consistent results the past two days. Monday i went into the money on all the dazzlers i played in. I finished 22/279 for $5.81, 13/148 for $4 and 6/142 for $18.

I also finished late in 6/10 in total. Tuesday i continued the trend and went 6/7 finishing late and once again picked up 3 min cashes. 20/114 for $3.50, 17/275 for $3.30 and finally flirted with major cash in the Frenzy finishing 11/534 for $42.

My goal since Sunday was to try and play tighter poker then usual. I have no problem clicking fold i just find the games so loose i usually fold a dominating hand. When in doubt fold. I am starting to really feel comfortable being able to find better spots. Sometimes i even fold AK to a raise and reraise and then just steal one of the next pots.


So ill nail my goals down once again for the next 30 days.

Statistical
Attain a ITM% of 16% or higher. (currently 14%)
Lower my MTT Avg Finish Early to <10% (11%)
Improve my OPR Merge Ranking (90.54%)

Decrease Loses in SNG's. (-121) - holy crap how did i let it get this bad....
Decrease Loses in Cash games NL (-10/4953 hands)

Thanks as always Serpang. I wish i played in Dozn01's tourny as it would have been nice to chat with you on a table one time.

The video is 5+ hours long so im a bit hesitant to upload it all to youtube. I can though, make a new video tomorrow of a Micro MTT i play in.

I find poker tournies are like bankroll management. When i have more chips (money in account) I can play more hand (tournies). When i have lots of chips in a tourny i can afford to make plays. In micros in late stage if i have 2nd place chips say 300k i call a dive of 60k with AQ. If i have 60K i may fold there. Luckily in micros AQ is better hand then average BUT its still only 60/40.

Early in games dont overplay hands. AQAKAJKKQQJJ all get you murdered early when one lost pot could mean death. Its really hard to play these hands early. Do you raise an absurd amount compared to blinds or do you play it properly and risk a 4 way pot on a loose table? Nothing worse then getting KK utg and opening for a 2/3 sized pot bet and having 4 people flat call you. The reason i said proper was because its just that. Proper. In the first example you over play the hand and A2 calls ur allin. Thinking you have KQ or who knows what but it happens. Ace on flop game over. Example 2, you do what you should do and 4 people flat u. flop comes K107. You check and the next to act dives allin. one guy calls and now you are forced to call and see the next guy had AA the other guy has 89. XX comes and u rake the pot. Hey its my story so i can make the examples lol. Seriously though if it comes A103 then be glad. Ace was coming and now ur lucky noone raised preflop. Either way in example 2 you have 0 zero getting felted.

In micros its amazing how many people dive non stop. If you ever get AA in the SB and noone acts, flat the bb and get ready to call his allin or raise his bluff. Or if you'r on the button underbet a steal with AA. Especially into a loose bettor.

Those who have seen me play know im guilty of overplaying hands all the time. So dont think im preaching. I say all of this stuff for myself first. Its just meant to be a peer reviewed journal really.

Ugh, those bloody sng's are impossible. It's way harder then mtt's. It never used to be this way. I swear i used to be able to play them.

In general ive been playing much tighter then usual. Ive hit some snags on the river but my game has put me in ahead much more often then not. Because ive played less hands then normal the grinders have noticed and dont sweat my semis nearly as much which is awesome. I am still having a hard time in some areas and likely always will. One question will always be difficult.

What do you do in a micro game with a strong holding to a allin by a unknown player?

In micros u can face any two in an allin. In my opinion if you hold AQAK 99 or better you are likely ahead. The query doesnt stop there tho. What if you have such a hand but are likely to be in a multy-way pot? Still you are likely to be ahead but now you have to worry about splitting cards with others along with overs, not to say you couldnt be behind the whole way.

The last 3 days i have been folding hands only to see i would have raked a massive pot. Worse yet when i have managed to find a call i have had bad luck with the cards and my dominating 99 gets KKrushed by 77 on the river. Which is hopeful because i know over time thats a huge plus for me.

My own conclusion to all of this is to continue to gamble in spots that dont threaten my game while folding in spots it does. This will lower my stack size significantly because i know its my readiness to doubt the players in that level that give me such a huge stack most times. Although my stack will be on avg smaller if i can find more steals (isnt hard im just lazy) it should parlay into deeper runs and more consistent results.

Now off to shovel the driveway....

Aww crap!
