Hi everyone.
After long thoughts I decided to created a blog here to track my progess and get more feedback from other players. Hopefully it will make me a better player.

Spade About me Spade


I am 26 years old currently officialy unemployed in reality playing poker for a living. It would be quite a great job if not my crazy monkey tilt. Lately I am quite strugling what to do next in my life. Hopefully I will be more sucesfull in poker so there won't be a need for a normal job.

Diamond Poker career Diamond

I was always pretty sucesfull full ring player. It was my main game for last 2 years.
Black Friday was really bad hit for me. I was playing nl50/nl100 fr back then on Ultimate Bet. Of course I kept my whole bankroll there so I was left with around 500$ in my pocket .
Given that I had to rebulit my roll+ pay all expenses in the meantime crying .
Thanks to Gerv who helped me back then I was able to rebulit my roll and start from scratch again playing fr games on Boss Media/Pokerstars.
After staking instead of playing fr games again I decided to play 6-max games with medicore sucess (I guess like 7bb/100). The problem as always were my expenses. I was spending all of my profit from poker on partying/random stuff/gifts etc. so never had enough to move up from nl50/nl100...

Club Future Plans Club


Currently I am quite frustrated with how my life looks like.
My biggest problem is volume. I am 18 tabling nl50fr on pokerstars yet I play like 60k hands/month.
This year results:




Hopefully this blog will motivate me to grind more and I will increase my volume enough.
I have also side project which is learining finally to play proper sh games (and not to spew like a random retard). I was playing sh exclusively between September and December last year with quite decent results but after getting crushed in 30k hands for like 25BI I deicided to quit and switch again to fr games which is the only game I beat for sure. Hopefully this time it will go way better.
Unfortunately I don't have enough to separate part from my roll so plan is to get staking on microgaming where I can get decent rakeback+ some coaching so I would have better idea how to play 6-max games. If not I will just grind fr games like crazy and hopefully will finally move to nl100 cause right now I spent more than I make playing poker,fml.

Heart Spewy monkey Heart


Todays session was the trigger that force me to create this blog.I hope that if I ashame myself here in public I won't do some stupid moves again.

Pozdrowienia ze Stanow smile

It was interesting reading your blog and hearing you describe yourself as a crazy tilter. Your graph seems to tell another story. Your NSDW are positive in Full Ring which is rare. It seems like your style is very aggressive but there are good reasons behind your actions.

The main thing that drew my attention was your comment about withdrawing frequently to go partying and buying random gifts. There is nothing wrong with spending money on that, but it also sounds like it's getting in the way of your growth as a player and costing you tons of EV.

You don't have to give up partying or gift-buying, but if you want to maximize your potential as a player, poker will have to become more of a priority. I wouldn't give this advice to 95% of players on this forum, but if you want to support yourself from poker, your priorities have to be different.

I wish you lots of luck and hope you update regularly - your story is interesting!

Thanks mate. The reason I am frustrated is that year ago I was playing same games so nl50 on UB(nah it is even worse I was playing nl100fr back then before some retarded cashout that force me to go back to nl50). Basically I haven't made any progress in a year fish cry which is ridiculous given my winrate etc. Just I am quite good poker player but in real life I am just loose passive fish splashing money away, FML.
It has to change.
What is your nick on Pokerstars if I might ask??? I recognize someone with similar nick just can't find in my database....

Thanks Danny. I wish you good luck too. Hopefully we will meet at nl100/nl200 tables in no time wink




This month is pretty bad for me. I just have problerms with concentration and I play my B/C game. I can't focus properly:

Hand against fish. It become quite common for me lately. 18 tables and some retarded misclick while using table ninja (just had action on another table where I wanted to raise but here I wanted just to call)that commit me into the pot (Villain was the mark on the table, still when I see it know I should just fold on flop cause I could get away from that pot).
My EV winrate is in this month like 7.5bb/100 which is the lowest I had on full ring games on stars. The problem is it isn't because my opponents became suddenly better just because I am not focused enough.
Same spot here vs fish:

It is the easiest fold in the world on the River especially given his sizing which mean pretty much please,please call, yet I just can't find the fold button shark evil

I am loosing a lot of small to medium size pots where I had really big edge before. So from tommorow I will start work heavily on my game again
if anyone wants to do some session review/sweat session etc. let me know (let's say nl25+)
I am kinda struggling now but I have been like 10bb winner on nl25/nl50 for 300k hands+ so I know sth about the game for sure.



Given that I don''t want this blog to become some whinning thread I will post some tricky hands where I think is still lots of value that people don't see:

Villian 1 is 12/10 with fold to 3bet 65%, cold caller pretty much the same nit (just 13/9) Squezzer play like 20/16 5.3 3b after reasonable sample. It is just perfect spot for him to squezz nits will fold everything but the nuts.
So after my cold 4 bet they just can't continue cause it looks so strong. Given how people play on nl50 I wouldn't be suprised if one of them folded AK or QQ.

OR plays super ABC poker with 83% fold to 3bet. SB is good tricky opponent (he owned me couple of times later cause of course instead of following my reads I was just clicking the buttons randomly)
So basically SB knows that I am full of shit when I 3b there (cause I would float most of my value range if not all given that OR fold everythig except premiums and never ever 4b blufff). So his cold 4b is almost never a hand. My hand is to bad to ship as a bluff (it would be better to have sth like Axs)
SO I am risking 13.5$ to win 16$ easy game. Just everything is based on assumption that he fold all of his 4b bluffs that he is full of there.

Villian is 14/12 with 48% of fold to cbet. His c/r doesn't have any sense of the flop. I could 3b him on the flop but I would rep pretty much same what he reps so nothing.However his nothing is most of the time better than mine (higher pocket pairs)
I am realy proud of my play there especially river cause basically my line is consistent and it never ever looks like a bluff. I would play Ax pretty much the same so I am balanced there.

this time spanish "pro" 19/17/41. Pretty aggresive reg. That's my bad just thought that he is better. Never expected him to have set here given that I ship pretty light. SO thought that He 4b/call JJ+ vs me and fold 22-66 vs 3b. Always thought that it is really stupid to call such a hand but hey he hit he is right.

FWIW, that AK in hand #1 is a snap-fold for me after a three-bet & call - even if both opponents are aggro. Hand # 2 is tough ... he should expect you to have Ax maybe even with a diamond often (AxQDiamond , AxKDiamond , etc). Meh.

I think its close with the 2nd hand but im confident he doesnt have naked AQo or AxQ too often nor a call flop, fold Turn range

The more I think about it, the more I think we are behind often when facing a flop raise and without a lot of history, I kind of like a b/f there. I don't see many players bluff-raising this flop with air at these limits or turning made hands into bluffs.

The raise screams value and we do really poorly vs. his value raising-range there.

Yeah - strictly referring to flop play.

The 1st hand is huge overplay for sure.
The 2nd hand is more tricky when I thought about his range. For me it was like 77+ QJs+ sometimes 67s+. So pretty much the only strict value hand I thought he might have ther is AJs and flushes that he hasn't that many cause I expected him to 4bet/call JJ+ vs me AK for sure.
So I thought that he might have a lot of draws there (but most of the draws have there like 50% equity crying )
He is fighting for the pots but in a passive way (fold to cbet IP only 20%) however he only raise cbet like 8% so it should be enough for me to fold there.

Villian is 12/10 with 6.6 3bet. I am really angry on myself because of that hand. I knew that Villian is just stupid basically he 3b completely depolarized range cause he don't know what to do and vs top 7% of the range I run pretty bad. Had a read that he floated 4b before with JJ so basically on the flop it is like TT+ AQ, KQ? nop point in betting cause if I am ahead he has likke 3-6 outs so I just tried to show it down.

Villian is 24/9/36 (VPIP/PFR/AFq) with fold to cbet 40% (Villian 2 the one that folded is 44/8/31). Flop cbet is pretty close but I thought that given that both Villians were fish I can value bet.
Now the Turn is really wierd. I thought that he might play draw that way (cause he wants to buy river card cheaply with his draw)
I thought that I have enough equity to call but maybe fold would be better??

Bluffing 12/9 with WTSD 24% didn't end well. Thought that he fold anything except the 9 but hey he had TP can't fold. This is how my "creative play" end up lately.

This is a hand that I don't know if I played correctly. Villian is 16/12/18 after 189 hands but 3b 12.2% which is a lot (sample though). Thought about 4b but wanted to keep his range as wide as possible and didn't want to 4bet/fold and 4b/call would be pretty retarded with no history.
Now the problem is flop decisson I think know that c/c would be better cause basicall when I rasie he folds anything that I beat so I am staking off with like 40% equity. So basically I just could call him down. Deffo would be better play.

5) I love when I hit my reverse outs,FML

Franeczek, I really like your thread. Your entire description of your poker career sounds a lot like mine. I too have haunted the nl25 to nl100 tables EVERYWHERE and have always done the same as you. Like, play solid and win at like 14bb/100 for 100k hands at all different places and then tilt like a retarded idiot. Spewing and not knowing why. Moving up stakes and 10tabling and not knowing a single player. Deposit at a new site and win 100 stacks at NL50 headsup. Then lose it in 2 weeks at NL200 HU. It's embarassing sometimes when I think of it. Maybe I should post all my terrible hands of tilt so I'll stop spewing so hard. I am already feeling better for confessing these sins, and I thank you for that. I'm back mostly at stars not getting tracked by pokerstrategy. Will be supernova next month I hope, I've collected almost 50k VPP. I'm going to be following you closely and I hope that you succeed in your poker career. As for your recently posted hands:
1. You already know with this one, just fold dude, seriously. I know he is stupid, he has no idea, you summed this up yourself with his stats. But you can read him like a book.
2. Tough one and I might have played it like that but there is also an argument for just overlimping and seeing a flop with 88. Flop bet is fine I suppose, but when he bets, sure he could have a draw which is why you call but I'm more inclined to think he has a monster. That's my read.
3. That is just spew. So so bad. It's so frustrating because villain is a douche. Your play let him pwn you though.
4. Depends on your image and need to balance. Sometimes I would just shove directly on the flop, the raise is awkward and pointless. Just call and look to CR later. Villain is a douche. He is 3 betting a ton and the proof is there.
5. This happens, I guess, i can't really find the fold v this fish and I would have probably been delighted to get AI with this player on the river figuring he was just being stupid with his limped KK

Thanks for kind words Dirtyibis.


Yeah it might be suprising for many people what kind of hands I post here given my winrate just there is no point in posting hands where I know I played well and owned fish or reg.
I guess that's my biggest problem is that I overetsimate my opponents skill and their ability to hand read.
Sometimes I make an assumption about villian hands range and at the showdown he shows me somthing completely retarded:

Villian plays like 12/7. Overall it is pretty bad given that his WTSD is 33% after quite a huge sample. Just He called my UTG OR with 96s OOP and c/c 2 streets with 3 pair to blink the river. Sure my game wasn't good, didn't have any really good read on him.


It is like that pretty much every session when I made some assumptions about Villian hands range and then I get sth like that confused .
Just people get bored,tilted or don't have enough discipline to stick to their game plan and start to OR/col call some weird stuff.
Same with bluff catching my current River call efficiency is like 1.75 or so. People just don't bluff enough and I offten level myself that e.g. he will be bluffing a ton in that particular spot cause it is perfect for that while in reality Villian is just smashing the buttons or is just bad nit (way more common in full ring games) that just doesn't understand gameplan and equity stuff.
I would save a lot money if I treat my oppnents like level 1 thinkers that they are in reality.

I started finally grinding 6-mac games on Prima due to my staking deal with Gerv. It didn't start well but whan can you do.

Villian was 24/11/39 (VIPIp/PFr/AFq) after 180 hands. He had 3bet like 9% sample though. WHen he called pre I don't know if I ever can get away with my hand with SPR like 1. Could probably just call OOP and try to hit my outs just doubt it would be optimal.

Didn't have any real stats on villian cause it was like 4th hand at that table.
Thought about folding the flop but with gutshot and backdoor fd I decided to call, blinked T with my reverse outs, called river when blank. I suppose that fold on flop would be the best.

Cutofff was a mark on that table so I didn't wanted to let him fold BB probably a reg. I guess I should ship the T. As played I didn't thought that I can ever call it cause there is many combos that beats me and I never win (the worst fo his value hands is AT too so I chop the pot)
