Another mediocre week in terms of volume and results. I had a good chance to win Belgian Poker Championship on PS, but came 3rd after loosing QQ to 99 in 3way all-in for heaps. We take it though.
Yesterday I started to play 16 tables while tiling them. I used to grind 15-25 and stack, but since Aurora and Stars Helper not working anymore I am tiling tables. Found it difficult to grind more then 9 at the very beginning, especially mixing 3-4 sites, but I feel like I'm getting better at it now. I played 16 yesterday for a while and it was fine. I strongly believe putting volume is very important, and I will try to stick to 16 tables in 2021. I didn't feel like I am leaving any EV on the tables. Early / mid game on mid stakes is not that important anyway and can be played automatically without paying too much attention IMO. Of course I assume that my autopilot is making more bb per 100 then my opponents A-game, which is mostly true, given how soft fields are these days.
On Monday, we have Christmas Homegame, it will be a lot of fun. 2 different tournaments, and cash game on the side. I can't wait to have Monday off and grind that while drinking couple beers.
Group studying is going well. We covered playing from SB vs BB, donk betting ranges on turns out of BB, 3bet pots both as BB 3bettor and BU 3bettor. A lot of new things/strategies came out. I am very excited about this. I think working together in more organised fashion has massive potential.
Today is a community coaching with Pokercode and Matthias Eibinger will talk about red line and how to improve it. Not something that I am struggling with too much, but I am still super excited as I am sure I will get tons of value out of it. Every session reminds me how little I know about this game. I guess it's normal when everyone doing a lecture is just a GOAT.
Because of pandemic, I am not sure what to do, but I think I will go to Cracow to celebrate New Years with my friends. It's gonna be tough, as the entire country is at lockdown and there will be police hour on 31st. No gamble, no future, I guess.
Partypoker left the market, we can't play on 888poker, Winamax. I think it's time to leave. I would be very surprised if i stayed in here in 2021. Let's play well, study a lot, run good, load up the truck and GTFO.
