  • My blog about my road towards the top

    Hey guys I invite you all to read my blog if you are a cashgame player. I'll be regularly writing blogs about how I take poker and improve my play aswell keep the mentality up.

    First 2 blogs should be out. For sure 1
    Talking about my downswing of over 20buyins. and how I'm grinding it up again at lower stakes.

    I'll discuss:
    - ranges I open
    - when and why I call
    - How to take a downswing
    - How to take reads in zoom and abuse it from just seeing 1-5hands of a player.
    - And open for a lot more if you guys want it.

    Together we improve!

    Blog1: The downswing... What to do?
    Blog2: The importance of NOTES... in zoom
    Blog3: General approach with opening ranges
    Blog4: Calling ranges & postflop play with bet sizing.
    Blog5: Extra side motivator at my cashtables
    Blog6: EUR banking | bluffing | PLO grinding and comparing it with NLHE
    Blog7: The zoom Upswing!
    Blog8: Playing all the Pocket Pairs. Easy, fast & profitable
    Blog9: My last month + finally NL10 (again)

    I will stop posting my blogs here. Only the real followers of my blogs will get to read it. Or if it gets featured.

      Hey marvinsytan I seen you around on this foruma nd see you are MTT SNG player.
      I actually also come from that background. Now last year I fully put my attention to cashgames and such. More like deepstack poker.
      Last month I lost all of my bankroll due partly not efficiënt bankroll methods, and not dropping down. Which I paid the price for.

      But working my way up again, and i feel the need sharing the story and how I play. With the info's you'll read you'll be able to abuse and beat me in zoom.
      (Until I notice that you abuse me and make a note about it.)

              And my 4th blog is online! Calling ranges & postflop play with bet sizing

              Hopefully you'll all have a nice ready of my 4key blogs for NL2 how I beat zoom 6-max. Obviously there are way better ways of approaching. But this felt to me the easy and fast way to beat it with a low variance.

              On avg I had 20-25BB every 100hands. I'm also confident this play has major leaks in it. Or missed value due my strange bettings but hey. It's how I feel I get lots of safe & good value from them.

              I'm currently looking for a new theme to blog about for NL2. Else I'll soon start my transition blog towards my NL5.
              I might also add a blog about playing drunk and how to optimize that. I played while being toxicated Some people can't help it such as myself. But I made myself some basic rules, which I can easely follow during that time. Avoiding a huge dumb in my stack the next morning Somethimes even a decent raise.

                And I added another blog. Hope you like it.
                This time its more of a motivator tactic which seems to be working well for me. I think it can also be used in MTT SNG's. with some variants of it.

                      Cannot get the PLO one to open I think the link is incorrect?

                        Strange, for me it is working fine. However that blog isn't really giving much info over PLO. If however you are intrested in starting to grind PLO I must suggest you go to:
                        Videos => advanced: lessons & omaha => search

                        You'll find only 3videos. Those 3 will let you beat the PLO microstakes without a problem! best of luck.
