Last couple weeks were about studying a lot, trying to fix biggest leaks I have, increase and decrease certain frequencies based on some MDA work and less about grinding. When it comes to grinding we are moving up stakes and feeling more and more confident doing so. Some stuff I was working a lot on last couple weeks are:
- bvb spots (from SB perspective)
- turn c-bet and river arriving range on both bb and bx nodes
- BB vs IP
There is a lot of take-aways from MDA work that was done, that unfortunately I can't share, but what I can say is that people are better than I thought.
Work has been done, frequencies are getting closer to where I want them to be, the only thing that is missing is results, but as we all know it's a process and the results will be there eventually if we keep doing what we are doing.
I identified (with much appreciated help with others) some mindset problems I had. Most of it is pretty low self-esteem and undervaluing myself. This will need time to get fixed, we are in for a journey, but I think I will get there sooner or later. What was quite funny to notice is that, I'm not the only person having problems with that, and it seems like players that spend a lot of time off tables have lower belief in themselves compared to the ones studying very little. It makes sense, as why would you think about your skill negatively if you just don't know what you don't know :)
After Grindhouse 3
Last 30 days
I'm still too tight on higher stakes, which is showing in the red line loses. We need to grow bigger balls and stop being afraid of stronger opponents.
BLACK FRIDAY SALE - extended
We decided to extend our Black Friday sale until Friday 2 December 2022. Get that value!
Santa Mammoth - promo
Christmas is approaching pretty quickly and before I go to Prague for Eureka/EPT, I decided that I will turn myself into Santa Claus and I will do free seminar on Friday 2nd December 2022. It will be 30 mins long and open for everyone to join. This way, you can see for yourself how our seminars are hosted. Topic is still unknown, but it's very likely we will review some hands that I've tagged.
We will be running give-aways on Discord soon. You can win multiple things, such as free video or even entry to one of our live sessions. Stay tuned!
Mammoth On Twitch.
Speaking of give-aways, there is more! You can win 1 week access to seminars if you are lucky enough in the raffle on Twitch.
I will be on Twitch with Tiimeeyyy on Thursday and Ole will be live with Deckflow on Friday this week. More deitals on Discord in #events Good luck!
Hello guys, it's been a while!
I've been very busy working on my game lately and didn't have much time to be active on discord and no time to post an update in here.
During Grindhouse and after I got my game broken down into pieces and found very specific leaks in some areas that I wasn't even aware of. Long story short, I was still too passive, mainly preflop and too loose postflop from turns in both calling and c-betting myself. I created a study plan for myself and I'm working hard on fixing every leak from the list these days. I can't discuss this in detail and I don't want to expose myself too much, but what we figured out is that I was still too passive in check-raising, flatting IP and from SB as well as still 3-betting too little. Frequencies look fine, but we can be overly aggressive in certain situations preflop and on certain board textures postflop as well.
Studying and fixing those leaks and learning pretty exploitative strategies is my main focus at the moment, and I'm pretty certain I will get there sooner or later. It's very interesting how little deviation from optimal population need to do in order for us to become very aggro. I strongly believe I can get the red line winnings to break-even or possibly even positive without hurting blue line too much. This is EV graph after 20 Sept, which is the end of the Grindhouse 3. We are currently performing at -1.87bb/100 in red line overall. Very small sample size, as I only had 18 grinding days, so I don't want to say it yet, but I think I'm on the right track :)
I finally created my own bundles from seminars I did this year. I selected multiple videos and decided to go for two packages - IP and OOP bundle. Let me know if interested and if you have any questions about the content.
