    Default Alexos' Adventures in Donkland

    Yeh yeh, I've been thinking of doing this for a while, and I think the time is appropriate now. I've been on my worst downswing ever recently (like everyone else except Zook, ya?), having dropped about 33% of my roll (40k downswing, but dont worry ive recovered some:P) at a certain point. I took a break and traveled to Australia for a month, followed by a week in St-Kitts for the Carribean Poker Tourney which was a blast. Now I'm back and I really want to work on my game and turn things around.

    My main game has been 6-10 tabling 500nl, and I've been playing/running great over a significant sample size. But as soon as I move up to 5/10 I've just getting destroyed, and im not even kidding you (Stats at bottom of this post). I'm definitly not playing scared money since I'm always decently rolled and have come to the point that losing 5k pots doesnt really bother me that much? I think that is part of the problem, sometimes I just spew so horribly and make utterly dumb plays at lower limits because "I already lost a 10k pot, so 500-1k$ is nothing" which is stupid. Anyways...

    My goal are the following:
    -Talk more about poker with buddies..I'm probably the guy that talks to least poker through IM's, even though I have plenty of resources available.
    -Do sweat reviews or vids/get coaching/coach someone
    -Get better at note taking (notes have done me more harm than good)
    -PLAY more hands, I want to get in 50k hands/month w/out going over 8tables
    -Stop when I feel tilty/Never play tired
    -Table select..I dont need to sit with the regs, at least not until my game is back on track
    -My monetary goal remains at 20k/month incl. RB + bonus

    Oh, and in case you were wondering, I used the word Donk in the title not only because I want to play vs them and profit, but because I am a donk myself sometimes (often). This thread will be used to post my donkish plays of the day, and hopefully entertain a few of you.

    These are most of my hands at those limits:


    I withdrew a bunch and I'm left with a 8.4k BR, but I'll still play both 200nl and 500nl for now. Here we go!

    I guess I could coach you. I'm pretty expensive though.

    You are really beating up the 500NL games for being a fairly heavy multitabler - very impressive!

    good luck w/ 1kNL!!!

    I decided to create a new PT database for the operation, as the old one was lagging badly anyways. I played a mini-session, saw some donks with double stacks at a table and we played 3-handed for a while. Here are the highlights:

    1st three hands are almost back to back.

    1) Standard

    Blinds: $2/$5
    3 players
    Converter

    Stack sizes:
    Button: $763.31
    SB: $1121.50
    Alexos: $500

    Pre-flop: (3 players) Alexos is BB with
    Button raises to $20, SB calls, Alexos calls.

    Flop: ($60, 3 players)
    SB checks, Alexos checks, Button bets $40, SB folds, Alexos calls.

    Turn: ($140, 2 players)
    Alexos checks, Button checks.

    River: ($140, 2 players)
    Alexos checks, Button checks.

    Results:
    Final pot: $140
    Alexos shows 7h 7s
    Button mucks Ah 3s


    2)Here I figured he saw me call with 77 the hand before and check it down, so he would figure i'd fold to double barrels. On the river I just didnt think he'd value bet Jx this strongly, and he fired pretty quickly. I'm a station.

    Alexos checks, Button bets $75, Alexos calls.

    River: ($252, 2 players)
    Alexos checks, Button bets $185, Alexos calls.

    Results:

    He has A7o


    3)I got TP, stackadonk! I got berated for the 66 call obviously, so I figured he could call with worse here

    Results:

    Alexos shows Qc Kh

    4) Villain is a 24/15 reg. It was pretty clear he has an overpair here i think. How is the betsizing, I thought maybe I should make it 200 on river instead.

    5) Me getting owned. He was definitly bad, but this was the 1st time he 3bet pre. I should fold pre, but I woulda made a move on many flops, and he was so bad I couldnt resist.

    6) Very tricky spot. The initial raiser is a laggy reg, kinda spewy. Against this guy I probably RR AK only 50% here, I know he calls my 3bets like always but is a good hand reader. The shortstack was mad aggro and terrible so I prolly flat AK 80% of the time in this situation. His RR to isolate shorty can mean anything from AJ to something like 88, maybe worse, since he knows SS is bad. I think it's an easy push vs this guy, against others I could fold this.

    1. I bet river pretty much always
    2. nice, this is a spot where unless the guy is vbetting thin you're going to own him. If he insta bets the river snap it. Timing is very important here.
    3. I threebet here almost always, as played on the flop I lead. C/r overreps your hand a ton.
    4. This is just pretty dependent on how you feel about opp.
    5. I don't normally see a cbet with air here. there are a lot of slow down cards so i just take my SD value and call the flop.
    6. I'd reraise AK here much more often than 50% of the time, especially given description of opp. As played yeah get it in.

    ISF:

    1) What worse hands do you expect him to call with when we bet river?

    3)I 3bet as well, but I just won 2 big pots off of him and didnt want to play OOP but still felt my hand has good value and a good kicker. Very good point about the c/r, I should def lead. Although I still dont mind getting in it he was def tilty.

    5)It's just that I hate calling with marginal hands on super drawy flops, there are so many bad cards for me. The only good thing we have is position. This might be a leak of mine right here.

    6)Against a decent laggy player I prefer to keep the pot small with a drawy hand...this guy will never 4bet crap, and pretty much always calls cbets. With the aggro donk behind me I still prefer flat calling against that guy. edit: basically i thought it was a good time to mix it up

    I played 2k hands today and I won 2.5k, playing 1/3 500nl 2/3 200nl...I played 3.5 hrs and im pretty much burned. I really don't understand how some people play 8hrs+/day

    Interesting hands of the day:

    1) Scandies are such big bluffers, I swear I need to let them bluff more often I miss so much value Hey Halv!

    Goddamn, someone still plays at Crypto, Poker's equivalent of a rock garden!?

    Here my 2 cents worth:

    Hand 1: I am surprised button didn't push the river. Unless you have been known to him to check/call with TPTK his bluffing was bad IMHO. Would you have called a river push?

    Hand 2: Is that sexy coldcalling here with AA in position? Or was SB a push happy shortstack? But I understand you not wanting to blow CO out of the pot.

    Hand 3: TT is right on the edge to take a stance here. If I push this turn is dependent on what my image is here. If you have been playing weakish against his 3-bets I like your line.

    Hand 4: If its the first time you have been tangling against this regular in a big pot then I would lean towards a fold. However, isn't your 3-bet a little bit on the small side? OOP I like to make my 3-bets closer to 4x opening raise.

    Hand 1: I am surprised button didn't push the river. Unless you have been known to him to check/call with TPTK his bluffing was bad IMHO. Would you have called a river push?

    I called pf since I had raised the last few hands vs him, and knew he would eventually come back at me the next time I did it. I was pretty sure I had the best hand and could possibly have him dominated. Flop came good for as only AK/AA beat me and not too drawy either. I was intending to call a river bet as well.

    Hand 2: Is that sexy coldcalling here with AA in position? Or was SB a push happy shortstack? But I understand you not wanting to blow CO out of the pot.

    I think its fine if the 3better is known as a tight guy. If he's laggy you can definitly 4bet this hand more often, but in general it often means QQ+/AK. And yes it is sexy.


    Hand 3: TT is right on the edge to take a stance here. If I push this turn is dependent on what my image is here. If you have been playing weakish against his 3-bets I like your line.

    I like my line pf and flop. On turn I regret pushing here, this guy will never fold a J or better here, and if I just check he'll surely check behind 88 and 99. I dont see what else he could have here other than 88-99-Jx or set...c/f turn (not results oriented)


    Hand 4: If its the first time you have been tangling against this regular in a big pot then I would lean towards a fold. However, isn't your 3-bet a little bit on the small side? OOP I like to make my 3-bets closer to 4x opening raise.


    You're right I should of made it bigger, I usually make it 50$ for 15$ raises, 55-60 for 17-18$ raises and 65 for 20$ raise.

    your comments are appreciated thx

    I suck, you know this, so take it for what its worth:

    1. I think this is good and the best line. He could show up with a K here but meh you have showdown value.
    2. Fold preflop =)
    3. I like pre. Flop looks good. With his stack and the pot size I think turn is ok but I think he has a J here a lot. You only really get called by 88 or 99 that you beat and I don't think they do this much. I guess c/f but what about c/c to induce more air?

    Holy fuck. I'm so tilted right now, I just dropped about 3k in 15 minutes, putting me at -500 for the day. The tables were insane, with 4 tables running and 3-4 deepstacked fish on each tables running over 50VPIP....paradise, right?


    Nope...As it turns out I lost a 3.5k pot (700BB) with a FH vs quads against a guy running 67/13. In another hand I pushed with QQ on a 2234 board to rep a bluff and go instasnapcalled from a donk with AK, I shoved pot (330$). WTF!!

    I'll post some hands tomorrow as im on life tilt now. Nite.

    I think your looking at this hand from a very poor perspective. Stop thinking about bad cards for your hand for a second. There are too many turn cards that are great to bluff on, there are too many turn cards that allow you to suck out because they force him to slow down, our range can hit much harder on the turn and river than his, and you are playing for stacks with the worst hand 90% of the time.

    I played a shittton the last 2 days, I cant even believe it. I moved my laptop to my room where I can fully concentrate, and it seems to be working as im focusing a lot more even if im multitabling heavily.

    Here are the results of the past 2 days...I think I've run about avg as well, the fish have just been ridiculous. I also shortstacked some 5/10 as regulars were going at each other with deep stacks, but everytime I shortstack I get bad beat so much for some reason...maybe its karma..



    I have a lot of hands to post, hopefully ill do it tmr its too late now..GN

    asasfasfasfasddd...now i understand why people stop posting in their operation threads when things go bad!!!

    ya so I dropped a few buyins during the week including flush over flush vs whale at 2kNL. BR back to 10k now so no more shots at higher limits for a while. I need to get my confidence back and start grinding again...

    Too late to post hands now but I'll start updating this thing even if I'm losing $$...promise

    zzzzz thanks for caring

    I played about 3k hands and down 500$ today...I'm running sooooo bad, i can actually visualize the river fucking me over, and im getting pretty good at it.

    Here are some interesting hands:

    1) I'm not sure if I like this one. Villain is a mediocre player, like he overvalues AQ pre and stuff like that, but i wouldnt say hes terrible. I'm not sure what to make of his turn lead, but my guess would be AT+, 2 pair, 78, or clubs? When he checks river I'm pretty sure he doesnt have it, so I...value bluff? Likey?

    But first, here is the previous hand I played against him:

    Game #4651334253: Hold'em NL ($2/$5) - 2007/12/17 - 23:48:00 (UK)
    Table "Cheese" Seat 6 is the button.

    Hero collected $702.80 from Side pot #1
    rherman collected $595.20 from Main pot

    2. yep I like that, you should be good after that river card imo.
    3. I think I just call his minraise on flop and re-evaluate turn.

    hand 1) i think i just check through river, he has two pair a lot

    hand 2) I think i either push or fold turn, with pushing being more often. too many draws out

    hand 3) he's so passive, how many hands? Just call min raise on flop and revaluate turn. donk lead maybe and fold to raise, given how passive he is.
  23. #23
    Hand 1: Can he not fold better hands if we bet river, but also potentially call with worse? Hence the value bluff..

    Or am i wrong and should just check back?

    I played a bit more yesterday and ended up ~300$ for the day which is good considering how I ran.

    Today I grinded out 1.5k hands for a profit of 2.1k dollaz! There was a mega mega whale that started out with 400$ at 2/4, luckboxed it to 4k on that table. Then he moved up to 80/160NL and won another 20k or so. Then he started with 800$ on 20/40 table and cashed out 30k, for a total profit of about 50k in a few hours. He was playing 78/10/1 and just the sickest sickest plays ever, god I love interpoker sometimes. I played 20/40 for a bit shortstacking, and would have continued if my BR was what it
    used to be. Here is how crazy he was:

    Just finished another 500 hands session for 1.9k. Obv I broke my rules and played some 1knl but its hard to resist when the tables are soooo soft.

    Nothing interesting, just value betting the hell out of them for the most part. Going to a christmas party, peaace and gl.

    SB is all-in $148, Hero ??

    4)Villain is 40/17/3, previous orbit he shoved a flush river card after c/c flop and checking turn, I folded.

    Hand 1 - weird... I guess you're beat with his min c/r. I call here too often though cause im a station.. but I'd imagine im almost always beat here.. but want to get shown the quads

    Hand 2 -ul

    Hand 3 - I think I fold this turn. He expects you to call, so I'd imagine you're beat with a flopped set/two pair

    Hand 4 - I think you're beating 8x hands, but losing to flushes obviously. Flip a coin I feel like

    Hand 5 - check/bomb if you think he'll bet a mid pair, bet if you think he'll check through

    My last 3 sessions went something like +3k, +3.7k, +1.5k...i feel like im playing good, but most of the profit is due to great table selection.

    This was a sick sick month. I started with 8.3k on Dec 4th, got it up to 19k within a week, only to drop most of it the following week. Went to NY for a few days to freshen up, came back and had my best week ever.

    Last week (mega-tabling):



    Got 2nd in a rakerace for 3k, and 6k rakeback on top of that for my best month ever +$28k.

    BR 36.5k

    My goals for the next few months is to get better reads on the regs and own them in 3bet pots. I will play a lot more 5/10 as I am now comfortably rolled for it. Happy new year!

    Somehow I keep winning. I've been table selecting the 5/10 games and ive been doing good. I did a prop bet with Griffey24 that the first to get to a BR of 100k gets 1% of the loser's BR at that point in time. He started at 61k and I started at 39k, even though he plays alot more 5/10 and 10/20 than I do. I think I got owned by taking this bet, but ill try to put in some more volume and somehow catch up. After today my roll is 50.4k and his is around 70k i think, so we're both benefiting.

    Stats from january 1st! Wheeeee heater



    Peeeace!

    oooh.. how I miss the days of 70k

    Its a tight race now!

    Sup guys,

    Poker is going steady, up another 2k today in a non-eventfull session. I almost feel bad that I got ahead of Griffey24 in our 100k bet, its never fun to see someone lose that much, especially since i know how it feels like to be in a sick downswing. Oh well, I hope I win our bet by like only a few thousands, 1% of 99k is better than 1% of 50k anyways,,,heheh!

    I also found out about GrinderSchool today while talking to Jyms. Although training sites are nothing new, i still think its a good business idea and wish them the best of luck. I always wanted to start a business and the money gained from poker certainly gives me more options, hopefully i get some bright ideas in the near future

    I'm off to bed, gluck all.

    Things have been shaky since the last update, i think ive been breakeven in poker, thx to winning a VIP freeroll for about 2k. I shortstacked 10/20 a bit yesterday and lost two 70/30 "flips", then lost another 1k playing full stacked:P I don't think I'm ready to play those Scandinavians at 1o/20 yet, they're just way too crazy for me.

    BR 54k, so its still good..my goal is to be at >60k at the end of the month.

    Kinda got bored with poker these days, maybe it's because of the sick amount of hands ive been putting up last month. Anyways, I started playing HU 100 and 200nl on PS just for fun, and the games are so good its amazing. Maybe it's because I havnt played any regulars up to now, but the play seems very bad even for a HU noob like me. HU is just a sick sick game though, i think this is the REALest form of poker ever.

    My stats seem insane but I was playing this guy HU and the match was totally nutz.

    yeah ill post them in a bit if no one has anything to comment...again im still unsure of how light to get it in HU and while it probably has everything to do with the flow of the match, im not certain of relative hand strengths yet.

    Kmind - I'm almost never playing on Stars, but as long as I'm bored of 6max on Interpoker, I'll continue to play either HU and random sng/mtt on PS.

    Hand 1 - you can't c/r that small... with COMPLETE air lol Make it like $400 or something if you're gonna c/r bluff I think, that at least gives him a chance to fold.

    All the rest seem pretty standard. It looked like you were hitting the world against this guy from the hands you showed, trips magnet lol, so not sure if some of those were coolers?

    If not.. he musta been tilting or something

    Actually hand 1 why not just bet flop if you're 3-betting pre? Its not like you're afraid of getting raiased off some draw?
  52. #52
    Lol I actually lost hands 3-5 thats why they were coolers, to trips with higher kickers. I also lost another one with trips in a similar way. I suppose getting it in with trips is pretty standard though in HU?? Not sure if I can slowdown somewhere in hand 4 though?

    in an aggro match it's close to impossible to fold trips unless a bunch of draws complete or it's a limped pot 300bb's deep or something

    Wow today i played 5.3k hands in just under 8 hours for a grand profit of .... -200$

    yey, i feel like crap:P

    anyways, last 2 months have been great, i won 29k and 21.5k. I'm aiming for 40k this month, its what I need to get my BR to 100k and win my bet vs Griffey. It's probably not achievable since I still play mostly 2/5 for some reason, but maybe I'll step up to some higher stakes to give myself some chances. I'm up $2,300 this month so $38k to go.

    5.3k hands eh.. lol thats sick! You're gonna own that MPP competition though!

    good luck with your $40k this month! You can do it... the question is... can I do it faster? Probably not.. given that I haven't played the last like 4 days. I gotta get back on the scene before you get too far ahead of me.

    and yesss you should be playing way more 5/10 and stuff!

    OMG, my computer has a trojan virus. I was playing my usual 12 tables the other day and all of a sudden everything froze and msn messenger windows were popping up all over the place sending random stuff to my contacts. I hope u guys havnt downloaded anything!!

    This sucks even more since I had purchased a good antivirus protection software a few months ago. Anyways, I havnt played last 2 days because of it, and im not even sure when ill be able to play again, since its not fixed yet. I'm a computer noob so I gave it to my gf's brother to fix it.

    Not sure how a 40k month is achievable now but ill try my best anyways. Cheers!

    Time for a brag: Results and graph since I started this operation (2 1/2 months)

    Add:
    +9k conversation of pounds & euros
    +15k bonuses and rakeback
    =66k YEY!



    I havn't been playing a lot in terms of hours recently. I log in 2-3k hands a day at most, and most of it is 10-12 tabling. I'm running pretty hot, but I'm playing some of my best poker ever . I've loosened up a lot in the past months and I'm much much more comfortable with my postflop play. What I'm most proud of is that I havnt tilted in weeks, and it used to cost me at least a couple buyins here and there.

    Sooooooo my roll is at like 75k now, and I saidd I'd make 40k this month and ownnnnn Griffey24 in our bet. I'm +15k this month so I got 25k left to go including rakeback, which is definitly possible till the end of the month. lets GOGOGOGO WHY THE HELL AM I STILL PLAYING 500NL and lower though??? idontknow

    youll have to figure in the hit your br will take when you donk off stacks to my buddies in sketchy underground games.

    im coming up Friday the 29th and leaving Sunday the 2nd, we all need to hit up the casino followed by some intense ballin' out of control. especially now that my BR is in order.

    I need to update this more often! It hasnt been going great lately, despite winning about 20k in February, I just cant put in consecutive winnings sessions and am playing a lot less because of it.

    Today is a good example, sorry I couldn't convert them properly.

    1) Clicked it back bluffed this guy a hand ago when he c/r my cbet, and he folded...

    3) Pretty sure I was beat here, this guy is pretty straightforward postflop. But can't fold on this flop and given preflop (dead money in the pot) , I prop fold TT though against him.

    Ugh I'm slacking off with this thread thingy Good news I finally won the bet I had vs. Griffey even though I was 10k away from completing it. It's nice to have won it, but really sucks that Griffey ran so bad during it. Until today that is... after giving me my 620$ we settled on (), he proceeds to take $3.5k ONLY FROM ME during our sessions today. How sick is that? God what an ass...:P

    Today I played 3.5k hands to end up +29$, sweeeeet. It even includes the $620 from Grif. Bleh. Anyways March is good and is gonna get even better soon! Here are some hands from today:

    1) Against Griffey, what a luckbox!

    http://www.pokerhand.org/?2267047

    2) Oh hey, I found another one vs Griffey!? My line is kinda weird but not rly, I guess it looks super strong but b/c of the lack of draws on board till river I was thinking a c/r would look even stronger. By river I just wanted him to think im bluffing the str8, im not sure if he calls AQ, if he does its good.

    http://www.pokerhand.org/?2267050

    3) Hand of the day, 300+BB deep vs our very own Griffey yet again. This is a tough one, and it came after all those previous hands and numerous 3bet bluffing etc. I felt like although sets are definitly in his range here, us being this deep is a very good spot for him to bluff, since I can't call with much? Anyways I shipped it in thinking I had the best hand and it worked.. I'll crosspost this to the other forums w/out the results.

    http://www.pokerhand.org/?2267066

    4) This ones funny, both are major donks. Flop is not super great for my hand but with the pot and stacks I felt like felting would be my best play especially vs these idiots.

    http://www.pokerhand.org/?2267070

    Now that the bet is over and even though I was leading by about 30k I feel a lot more free and not as worried to have losing sessions. I'll play a lot more 5/10 and 10/20 if the tables are good and slowly move away from 2/5, my bread and butter for so long. Cheers!

    lol oooooh man those hands are brutal

    2.5 months of a losing bet = ship Alexos $620
    2.5 hours of running hot = ship $3.5k back

    Good job again on the bet though, you play a lot more of a consistent/less swingy game than I do and you definitely own at it!

    I feel like I sucked out on you on all those hands (which I did) but they seem pretty close to me.

    Hand 1:

    Board: 5s 2d 3d
    Dead:

    equity win tie pots won pots tied
    Hand 0: 59.750% 59.07% 00.67% 25733 294.00 { TT-99, 66-55, 33-22, AdTd, Ad9d, Ad7d, Ad6d, 9d8d, 8d6d, 53s, 32s, 32o }
    Hand 1: 40.250% 39.58% 00.67% 17239 294.00 { 4c4d }


    Hand 2:

    Is just a severe suckout, but I'm not putting any more money into that pot with my hand after your flop call

    Hand 3:

    This hand obviously sucks once you shove, but pot odds call now getting 2:1!

    Board: Jh 6d 4h
    Dead:

    equity win tie pots won pots tied
    Hand 0: 63.820% 63.82% 00.00% 13900 0.00 { JJ+, 66, 44, AcJc, KhQh }
    Hand 1: 36.180% 36.18% 00.00% 7880 0.00 { AhQh }

    I have a new mini operation. Play 10k hands at 2/5 only and move up if my winrate is above 5ptbb while not playing more than 8 tables. If successful, rinse and repeat till 10/20. I just can't move up for some reason, although I probably have 70 BI for 10/20 I don't feel ready enough psychologically. This will force me to try it out, since I'll need to complete 10k hands at 10/20 before giving up on it!!!

    I started yesterday and had some pretty good results.

    good luck with the mini-op! I'm loooking forward to seeing this 10k hands at 10/20 go down!

    Played a nice little session again. I can already smell 5/10 coming! Also managed to get set over setted and KK<AA this sesh. I also cheated at some point and was up to 12 tables instead of 8, and I was clearly playing worse so I'll stick to 8 in the future.
