    It's 8am, I've been playing all night long. There is still a huge whale with a deep stack on the 20/40nl table. I was deep too. But this is enough, i'm exhausted.

    I won 33k today.

    i'm impressed, stopping when you're becoming incapable of playing your A-game - even in these circumstances.

    So I went deep in a tourney again, FTOPS ME, 74/4880 for 3.6k. I somehow luckbox my way to the late stages, but can't go past that point. It's pretty frustrating, but I guess that's what donkaments are about right?

    As for cash games, the road has been pretty choppy since that huge day, ive pretty much broken even. I started out shooting for a 100k month but that's unlikely to happen at this point, since I have about 40k to go with 12 days left.


    Here's a fun hand from today, don't take this line with AQ imo:


    $2/$5 No Limit Holdem
    6 players
    Converted at weaktight.com

    Stacks:
    UTG ($52.60)
    UTG+1 ($421.60)
    CO ($904.13)
    Hero ($543.15)
    SB ($979.94)
    BB ($276.05)

    Pre-flop: ($7, 6 players) Hero is BTN
    2 folds, CO calls $5, Hero raises to $22, SB raises to $50, 1 fold, CO folds, Hero calls $28

    Flop: ($110, 2 players)
    SB checks, Hero bets $44, SB calls $44

    Turn: ($198, 2 players)
    SB checks, Hero checks

    River: ($198, 2 players)
    SB checks, Hero bets $75, SB raises to $885.94, Hero calls $374.15

    Final Pot: $1533.09
    Hero shows:
    SB shows:

    Hero wins $1093.30 ( won +$550.15 )
    SB wins $436.79 ( lost -$543.15 )
    CO lost -$5.00

    You're a sick man Alex.

    Congrats on the deep FTOPS run, congrats on the 7k session and congrats on inducing a river c/r bluff from AQ there

    Damn yo, that sucks hard.

    3 buyin stop loss!! riiiiight.. I don't think you'll ever put that in effect.

    And yah I think thats pretty common type of bad session:

    <insert solid play>
    small Brag
    small Brag
    Beat
    Beat
    Beat
    <insert Tilt here>
    Bluff
    Beat
    <omg insert mega Tilt here>
    Bluff
    Bluff
    Bluff
    Bluff
    <holy insta quitssss>


    Bad session WITH some kind of stoploss:

    <insert solid play>
    small Brag
    small Brag
    Beat
    Beat
    Beat
    <holy insta quitssss stoploss>

    Money saved:

    Bluff
    Beat
    <omg insert mega Tilt here>
    Bluff
    Bluff
    Bluff
    Bluff
    <holy insta quitssss>


    It's hard to stop loss and I used to be really bad at doing it. Cause you always wanna make your money back. But in reality, it's probably always best. 3 buyins might be too small, but 4 and at most 5 is reasonable. Even if its only a 30minute break to clear your head and comeback, it's probably enough to avoid a big tilt.

    You know who suggested I stop loss in the first place? It was a very wise man who wins lots of moneys.....

    Truth is, i feel like my vids would suck. I also have a few stalkers reading my blog that are also crypto regulars, and I wouldn't want to teach them how to win at 7ptbb over 200k hands, imo.

    So today I play good and get some 500bb stacks on a few tables right? I'm up 4k in my first sesh, awesome. Play a bit later, down 4k.. okay lets make it back.. Play some 10/20, get coolered here and there, tilt, and booom down 10k.. fk me

    I sometimes justify idiotic plays by saying I just run bad, ohh I run bad, so lemme shove this hand without FE, and blame it cuz i run bad. OHH, i just sucked out, i deserve it, cuz i run so bad lately.

    NOOOO!!!

    FUCK YOU, STOP FUCKING COMPLAINING..STOP JUSTIFYING BAD PLAYS AND SAY U RUN BAD, WHO THE FUCK GIVES A SHIT, YOU GOTTA TAKE THIS SHIT SERIOUSLY ITS NOT PLAY MONEY.

    /rant Having a good month despite these last couple weeks of run bad/play bad. Need to get my shit together tho.

    Hope ya'll are doing good.

    I have a montreal hockey jersey that i won in a Lucky dip competition at Some gay Flea Market/exhibition. I didn't know it was a hockey jersey until just now.
    Hooray. Go montreal.

    Ohyeh....I have a question. How long did it take for you to go from 25nl-1000nl. ? How long have u been playing.

    Damn right, GO MONTREAL!! Give it to me when I make my return to Australia? kthx..

    I started playing back in August 2006, started with SnG's and ran my BR up to 3000$ within like 4 months of playing. I then switched to cash games and started at 25nl in December, and quickly went to 200nl (within a cpl months) because I already a healthy BR. In February of 2007 I was already playing 400nl, and by June 2007 I was taking shots at 5/10. I then had a 40k downswing which scared the shit out of me, went to Australia , got back, and been playing 2/5 and 5/10 to get my confidence back, with some shots at 10/20++. I'm a BR nit, so hopefully you can move up quicker if you put in the hands!

    Gl mayyte!

    I'm such a nit! This is gonna teach me to make dumb folds, EV wanted to make up for making me run horrible for past 3 weeks, and I pass up on the opportunity by making a dumb fold !!!

    $2/$5 No Limit Holdem
    6 players
    Converted at weaktight.com

    Stacks:
    UTG ($500.00)
    UTG+1 ($800.65)
    Hero ($760.20)
    BTN ($780.90)
    SB ($152.50)
    BB ($480.00)

    Pre-flop: ($7, 6 players) Hero is CO
    UTG raises to $15, UTG+1 raises to $55, Hero calls $55, 3 folds, UTG raises to $160, UTG+1 raises to $500, Hero folds, UTG calls $340

    Flop: ($1062, 2 players)

    Turn: ($1062, 2 players)

    River: ($1062, 2 players)

    Final Pot: $1062
    UTG shows:
    UTG+1 shows:

    UTG wins $529.50 ( won +$29.50 )
    UTG+1 wins $529.50 ( won +$29.50 )
    Hero lost -$55.00

    Finally running good again, +13k today and catchin up on allin EVs slowly. Here's to running hawt!

    I'm also getting lessons from a sick poker player in the next few days. I've never got coaching and didn't really need it up to 5/10, but I'm sure its worth the 500$/hr if it helps me improve different aspects of my game that will help me beat 25/50+ next yr.

    lol I saw this hand while we were playing, but I didn't know that you had KK's during it! holy... nice fold. I probably would have just called for like pot-odds

    I'd say UTG+1's range is strongly AA or KK here. UTG can probably have like QQ+ sometimes.

    So you're getting 2:1 essentially if we assume that UTG will come along after you so you need 33%.

    equity win tie pots won pots tied
    Hand 0: 15.073% 12.15% 02.93% 13986174 3369912.00 { KcKh }
    Hand 1: 65.267% 59.60% 05.66% 68630262 6520284.00 { KK+ }
    Hand 2: 19.660% 16.67% 02.99% 19195062 3441642.00 { QQ+, AKs, AKo }

    Good fold, good fold!

    Sick 13k day. Yah you definitely need coaching imo lol I guess I need to get my act together if I wanna stay up in this bet!

    Still haven't got my coaching sessions yet, my coach is too busy beating up on durrrr at 200/400.. what an asshole

    I just had a ridiculous session, filled with tears, and pain, and agony, frustration.... but somehow managed to turn things around and managed to profit. Weird. I think play 6 tables + HU and shorthanded tilts me soooo much. I mean, no wonder why HU poker is sooo profitable, you're so prone to either DESTROY or get destroyed, unless you have incredible control over your emotions.

    All is good, gn peepz!

    Blahhhh tilt post!!!

    So I grind like 2/5 and 5/10 like a maniac today, end up 9k and somehow below EV still. Cool.

    I come back from a pub after a sweet victory for the habs in shootouts, fire up some late nite fishy tables and BOOOOM! Get sucked out on a cpl times and then I decide to play some 20/40 soft game with fishes and lose KQ vs AQ on Qxx flop for a stack. Somehow I lose 9k and back to zero for the day!!. So tilting to work your ass off for 6hrs then lose it all I feel like it always happens, and WE KNOW it's gonna happen, but we still do it and HOPE it won't happen. But it does, it always does. So don't move up to chase losses kids, it WILL happen.

    In other news, I've tried making a vid today but I'm really new to this and feel like I'm not quite sure what to talk about. I think that having a certain topic for the vid helps, so maybe I'll try that next time. Anyways I'll keep on trying and eventually I'll post the vid here when I'm satisfied with it!!!

    Nite

    If you're doing a training type vid, then I think having a bunch of notes written down on topics can help (its what I did when I did the SNG noobie vid for FTR). That way you can chat through spots etc while playing and fill in dead air with your preplanned talking points.

    Definitely! I have memberships to all 4 major training sites : DC, CR, Leggo, and Pokersavvy. These guys have coached me for the past 2 years, I def recommend everyone subscribes to at least one.

    I also think CR got their act together finally. Since the new website the quality has increased dramatically.

    Can you elaborate (if you are willing) on the benefits or perks that these coaching sites offer their instructors? It seems like they would be unable to give fair compensation to top notch players, especially given that they are already making so much playing poker...

    I'm not sure what they pay the instructors, but the high stakes guys have a piece of that company so that makes sense. I'm just offering my coaching services through CR to get more exposure, I'm not making videos or anything like that, so no perks for me They take a small cut.

    Things are going well, the month started with a few 25/50 and 50/100 (shortstack) shots gone wrong, but I recovered and I'm set to have another solid month in poker.

    I'm also 5-6k away from winning my 3rd prop bet vs Griffey, which is pretty ridiculous given the unfavorable odds I laid myself in this one. What a fish he is

    Also, here's an interesting hand from today that made me go "whatttt?". He's a good higher stakes reg..

    $5/$10 No Limit Holdem
    5 players
    Converted at weaktight.com

    Stacks:
    UTG ($990.00)
    CO ($2055.00)
    Hero ($2053.75)
    SB ($1149.00)
    BB ($868.25)

    Pre-flop: ($15, 5 players) Hero is BTN
    UTG raises to $40, 1 fold, Hero raises to $122, 2 folds, UTG calls $82

    Flop: ($259, 2 players)
    UTG checks, Hero bets $177, UTG calls $177

    Turn: ($613, 2 players)
    UTG bets $691, Hero calls $691

    River: ($1995, 2 players)

    Final Pot: $1995
    UTG shows:
    Hero shows:

    UTG wins $1992 ( won +$1002 )
    Hero lost -$990.00

    It's okay you get free coaching + moral support from me all day every day!!!! It's definitely worth a few -EV propbets per year, imo!
