we are back!
WCOOP is finally over (except the main that got re-scheduled) and so is my Grindhouse 3 experience. Being in the house was great! I had a blast and can't wait for youtube content to be realised. Episode 1 should be up later this week.
I will very likely do a much longer post about the whole experience and take-aways and about my WCOOP, but for now you can watch the seminar I did this Monday with Fabi on 'Our main take-aways from GH3'. It's available to watch for our seminar subscribers, but also (as all videos are) available to purchase for $15. There is a lot of golden nuggets in there, so I'd totally recommend.
Speaking of seminars...
As mentioned already, we give you a chance to purchase single videos now for $15 per video. You can find the list of all seminars in #full-month-seminars on my Discord.
Additionally, I'd like to remind you that the WCOOP promotion is still going and will end on October 1st. You still have 3 days left to sub to our seminars for $100. If you do that, you will be paying $100 until the end of 2022 as our current subscribers are. If you sub from October, you will be charged $125.
By the way, depending on what day Episode 1 is realised, we may or may not have a 'watch party' on Discord open for everyone. The idea is to watch it together and have a chat as well. I will update you on this later this week.
I will also summarise my WCOOP/GH3 in next blog post in couple days when I'm done re-scheduling my week and building 3-6-12 month plan for myself. There is a lot that I'd like to change and a lot to blog about.
Last month have been packed with coaching and studying my game a lot to be max prepared for WCOOP grind and Grindhouse 3. I've identified many leaks in my thought processes and did in depth DB analysis to filter out my leaks that I will be focusing on plugging in next couple weeks. Biggest one being pretty low probe bet % still, which is quite surprising as I thought I play those spots quite ok.
Main findings from studies were how sensitive I should be to bet sizings and also I feel like I have better understanding in which spots we should be overfolding and against which positions and on what runouts we need to be hero calling like there is no tomorrow. It comes down to value to bluff ratios that people have pretty poor understanding off in certain situations imo.
On top of that I decided to spend some time during Grindhouse 3 and after on building and simplifying preflop strategies as well as build a database of sims from the scratch. I would like to have access to solutions with sizings that I am using in game and with some limitations in gametree for my opponents as well.
Not many games played, but I'm still happy with my volume:study ratio. I also added ACR to the schedule. Their tournaments have very good structure as you are playing pretty deep, but the games also take forever with 5 hour long re-entry period. Not great for us Europeans.
The goal for series is to take it slow this time. Will play 8-12 tables max, focusing on quality over quantity. I would like to improve as much as I can while playing and see if I enjoy the process of grinding more than normal. There will be a lot of hours played in next couple weeks mostly because of Grindhouse, so going for 12-20 tabling when we need to play every day can result in decision-making fatigue that leads to burnout.
Speaking of Grindhouse, I really liked the 'homework' Fedor gave us that was about drilling spots in GTOW. It was meant to prepare us a little and we were asked to screenshot every mistake and save it in google doc for him. I guess we will see what this was for while in the house. I definitely learnt a lot while doing those drills and realized how poor my strategy is in 3-bet pots OOP. This and all OOP spots in general are on priority list to study the most often right now.
I'm very excited for the Grindhouse! Flying to Vienna tomorrow already. We will grab dinner on Thursday and Friday and on Saturday morning we are already leaving to the house. Road trip time with Pokercode crew! :)
Best of luck to everyone during series!
