A little update for you guys. I am slacking a little bit and taking it slow during summer. I haven't been playing too much volume, but instead putting a lot efford and hours in coaching, studying, watching vids, making notes, running SIMs. Definiately my overall game is getting better and my understanding about ranges correlaction, equities and frequencies is stronger then ever. I started to really enjoy working with theory and solvers and I hope that it will pay off in the near future. This month I will still be focusing on strategy and reviewing hands. From September onwards, I will start putting more hours into grinding and all.
This is results since last post:
It's been a swingy month, in both MTTs and MTSNGs, but I feel like my overall game is constantly improving. I have been working on my BB game recently, and I found out that I was underdefending by a lot. This week my plan is to continue creating defending ranges vs variety of sizings and positions. When I have all ranges done, I will start creating reshoving ranges. It's been going really well working with a group of guys from my discord to have better understanding of BB defending and overall gameplan.
I have been coaching weekly and got 2 new players to coach from Standard Backing. We have only done few sessions together, but I feel like my coaching skills are also improving. It's getting easier for me to explain my thought process etc. It might be also because of the fact that 2 new players are on a decent level, understand strategy better then average and are willing to work hard.
I have also been a little better with scheduling and using my time efficiently. This is very important when I have to combine coaching, playing and reviewing my own game. The latter was lacking a bit, but I felt like coaching is improving my performance as well. So it's all good.
Fitness wise, well. It's my life leak. It's getting warmer right now, so I will put my running shoes to use soon, I'd imagine. Gotta join the gym as well soon to get that blood flowing.
Results from February and EV from 2019 compared with February. BB and SB still need a lot of work, but we're getting there :)
Hello again guys. I forgot to summarise my November, so there it is. I was a little lazy compared to previous months, but happy with it anyways. I have been discussing hands more and more on discord, meeting like-minded grinders this month. The group is growing and we also filter and kick inactive players, as we feel that sharing and not getting any value back is wrong. Hopefully in a couple of months we gonna get a strong, hard-working environment built by people that want to improve. I recently started thinking about my complete transition to mtts, as the bankroll is growing. I think I will play daytime mtts on different sites as a start and still adding some $3.50+R at the end of the session. Still waiting for the bankroll to hit that $10,000 so I can play $20 ABI (very conservative).
I also had very good start in December on sngs. Really happy to be back on track after pretty bad November. Gonna start adding $7.00 on demands and $11.00 KOs to my sessions.
More updates soon 🙂
october 2018 summary
October was good. Grinded hard, worked my ass off both indivudually and with my discord group. Mtt sngs are going very well, I feel like I have a massive edge over the field because of the hard work I put in recently. I am also very happy how discord is growing. We started with a group of about 10 players and now It's 50 of us with new players joining eveyday.
At the end of October I decided to add some mtts to my sessions. I will continue adding more in November as I feel that I gain a lot of experience which will help me to transition to grind them full time in the future.
I also review a little with a cash game player, and I really like his approach. Cash game players think a little differently and I believe that it is a correct way of analysing hands. He seems to be very professional. Because of that, I want to add some cash game sessions (probably zoom NL25) to learn deepstack poker and to gain more experience thinking about postflop ranges etc. I really enjoy it.
I believe that even if $ value in playing zoom is not that high, the value and experience that I will get will surely pay off in the future. Same goes for learning ICM in hypers. I think I might add few sessions of hyper 6max in November too.
Some graphs and numbers below. Peace!
