      Played kinda average,i think i spewed too much people just dont fold. Got called 4 times by A high allin on the river when was bluffing 4/4 caught.96/100 i have a value hand there.. but.. yea ;D bluff 4 times get called what can u do.

      Overall i was running really bad couldnt really get a + net sessions during the month,at the End went down to NL5 did good for whole week, last day Oct 30 -29,60$ in 2,5k hands brutal beats :D couldnt win a hand although won 400bb pot.

      Heres the pathetic graph.

      Hey @nostic, was just having a mooch at yr blog. I've had a similar journey; made it to nl10 then hit an epic run of negative variance ( =spewtard play by yrs truly :f_rolleyes: ) and I've dropped back to NL2 to gain a bit of confidence/experience. I've looked at the hands yr posting and I can see a lot of areas you can work on. You seem to be raising in spots where you have a medium/weakish hand. In these cases nothing better calls and nothing worse folds so you are only betting to take down the pot, which is not necessarily the best play. You have also posted a few hands where you have caught villains bluffing but in my experience so far there is not much bluffing going on esp. in zoom. River bets from villain are usually weighted towards value. True, it feels great to soul read someone and win with 2nd pair but if you loose 5 stacks to value bets for each bluff-catch then it's not going to be profitable longterm. Also, you seem to have a lagish type of game and I don't think it's sustainable at the micros. If nothing else the rake will kill you. My take on micro zoom is that most fish are quite loose preflop (esp. when there are multiple players already in the pot) but they play quite a tight fit or fold game postflop. When I say fit I mean anything; underpairs to the board and gutshots included. So you get value by making weaker made hands and draws call. Don't ever try and fold a made hand. I just doesn't work often enough.
      I definitely think moving down is a smart move. Don't get despondant that you are playing for peanuts now; it's all just experience before the real gravy starts flowing anyway eh? :f_p:
      I feel yr downswing pain. Keep working and gl!

      @redrawstump

      Yea i guess playing tight is way better.Should definately do that..in last year i made +1,1k from rakeback from nl2-nl10 :D i raked in 6k~ sick :D D NL10 rake is the biggest it seems

      I dont think i really have a problem with bluffcatching,sometimes i get confused and call off a small value bet but usually i see bluffs from value bets cos of spots ,sizing,timing tells that most of players here have.

      It was funny and embarrassing to see why i am down so much after reviewing hands.Most of my losses are from bluffing,semi bluffing people just call 3barrels with 3rd 4th pair when the board is very wet

      November was just bad,so bad ;D 25k hands -43$

      Not really worth putting up the graph

      Played 100+ micro stakes tournaments ~+29 net

      Played quite big chunk of Super turbo 4max Double Ups on Titan site for the silver,like 7 bucks the down too,gonna go for Gold status this month started 2 days in with 50points sadly down 9 euros ,was just running horrible, people play so bad i was shocked,but they just kept winning what can i do.

      Reviewed my game ,made so much mistakes i mean when i looked through the history i just f***** laughed at myself ,i know how to play those spots, i thought that i was playing right but its just funny did not folded so many rivers where i was beating a lot,with overpairs,but beating nothing that calls 3bet,calls bet on the flop and then bets the turn and river when checked noone bluffs like that,i know that but i still called :f_zZz: too stubborn. ;DDD:f_drink: :f_drink: :f_drink: :f_drink:

      I hope being hard on myself will help me improving myself to not be ashamed here infront of all of u :f_thumbsup: :f_thumbsup:

      Somehow i thought i improved my game and started playing better, Sadly i played horrible,run horrible. Heres the graph im running ~500bb above EV so i guess it could be ALOT worse.

      I had showdown winnings turned off to not see red line everytime i go to hm2.
      Week into January decided to check hows redline doing.Yea basicly it goes straight down -1600bb over 27k hands where it supposed to be up to -400-0

      I dont think that i should continue playing it seems im just playing worse and worse.

      I am playing 26/21 and i am trying to play tight...but it seems its still too loose cause i just keep folding turns and river over and over.

      hi gl

      just to mention a quick something that you might not have given too much thought about... betsizing. there's a lot of money to be made in zoom micros by varying your raise/cbet sizings since villain ranges are often inelastic in a lot of spots (silly example if villain has 88 on AK3, does it matter how much you cbet? or do you take notes on villains raise sizings?)
      just don't get too paranoid and believe people on the river :P

      I cbet 38% 52% 64%. Sometimes overbet turn 2x if i see a very good spot.Up to today was going quite decent but today losing 560bb sux,most of them lost w 2pair.top pair top kicker on turns.some on the river.So much aggression today in NL5 was just not prepared for that.

      If i would have believed all the Turn raises an River bets i would been in profit for the day instead of a big loss.So yea need to improve massivly

      64% is too low for your value hands in a lot of spots. you might also profit from not playing with deep stacks

      January 8 :

      Played for ~4 hours + session turned out decently, still not liking the red line going down too fast.Started improvement style gameplay 3 zoom tables instead of 5(1 on 888 NL2 for Allingift tickets)

      Heres the graph for the day. Too lazy to put hands for evaluation and stuff.Maybe some day ! :f_thumbsup:

      January 9: For the sake of trying to run good collected 3 tickets from Jan daily 10k giveaways and registered to all 3 at Jan 9th !Hoping for some rungood ! won 1$ from giweaways as usual nothing for me

      Today is the day that the month turned red from green -740bb over 2,4k hands... just sets over sets... overpairs vs sets...everyone had monsters every time they checked to me.Lost 3 preflop allins AK KK even though i won JJvQQ KKvAA once

      Won like 14% of the hands played.. so that was a horrible session.Missing almost all the draws,when hitting everyone snapfolded.
