    where to start

    On the break even front, already over $100 down for the year, but then playing too many tables, 16 at present and pushing too hard with weak hands.

    will reload tomorrow, invest time and money in tracking software, need to sit down and find a niche?

        playing 2NL,

        Going to have a 100 Dollar bank roll, plan is to double that up then move up to 5 NL.

        At the moment working through the details of playing a winning style.

                      It was a mixture of everything that I loath about my game,

                      I want to run before I can walk!

                      Playing top pair, top kicker against obvious trips or an overpair, trying to slow play made hands which are easily vulnerable then not passing when I know their beat e.g. nut flush against a double paired board on the river (why am I all in when the villain obviously hit trips on the flop). River gives FH and I'm still betting.

                      Playing with kids running about, playing hungry, playing tired?

                      One thing I've never done is played with scared money so that is where i am, a break for a week (next pay day) reload and take it easy.

                      The week gives me time to formulate the plan and play in more PSO league tounreys' and privilege events.

                      On a positive note did cash for 6 dollars in silver vip 30,000 tourney although blew it on tilt?

                      The week without cash I will study hold em manager database and look at where it went wrong? This one of my weak areas reviewing the session. Hope to post in the blog something a bit more indepth with some real analysis which wouldn't put people to sleep.

                        all in hands

                        What is clear from hold'em manager is when to choose to go all in.

                        I will learn how to post hands later but I'll give some examples.

                        Hero hold KK on the BB and is facing a raise from the button. Could be just a steal so 3bet and you face a 4 bet all in. Call or fold. You note villains vpip is 67% on 100 hands and has a re-steal of 40% so all in. Whether win or lose every time hero in this particular situation its +EV (can anyone give link to detailed article on EV)

                        Second example is the same cards and position and action but the numbers change so villain vpip is 10% and no figures available for a re-steal what do you do? I have to say it's safer to pass and wait for another opportunity which will come.

                        Third example is all in on the flop with pocket 7s on a 556 board with two hearts on the board. Hero was facing an all in bet from EP and calling is -EV, over pairs, trips and big draws. so small over pairs proceed with caution?

                        any comments would be welcome

                          Hey man, interesting read.

                          As for the hands in the last post i feel like i may have missed something because in both situation you mentioned with the KK i am never ever folding? Even if the guy had a VPIP of 10% get it in. If he has AA move on the next game. If he has AK i want him called and drawing to 3 Aces, if he hits move on to the next game. In most situations i think you are going to run into a pocket pair or A weak Ace either of which you are dominating.

                          If you are ever thinking of folding KK you are probably playing with too much money on the table.

                          If you really are worried you could always call see a flop with no Ace and then try and get it in but then your chance of getting his whole stack are shortened.

                          Maybe this is not what were trying to explain though?


                          • #14
                            I think what I'm trying to say with the second example is that HM is giving you a read on a NIT or a TAG and thus reducing your losses in this situation (a big pair faced with an overpair).

                            This is important when multitabling.



                            • #15
                              KK is +ev against a 10% vpip nit - if he wakes up with AA so be it - surely if your mass multi-tabling, hands like KK are the easy hands to ship it in with preflop if villian wonts to go to war?

                              Im not a cash game player, so you can kick me in the balls im wrong lol.
