      Woohoo, time for a new blog!

      For reference, my old blog can be found here... it's old, and i haven't really updated it in ages, and it was back when i decided NL2 was easy to beat ;)

      So, quick update about me...

      I'm 25 years old...


      I'm an aussie...


      I run a pub poker company in Newcastle, NSW


      And i drink southo ;)


      i currently grind NL25 on pokerstars...


      and i'm a dirty dirty shortstacker ;)


      and i play 6max SSS, a game which many believe to be unbeatable ;)



      -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      So, after taking a break for a while (my last serious grind was around june/july this year, just after coming back from vegas) I have decided to get back into poker in a big way. thanks to an anonymous backer, I am now super rolled for NL25 SSS SH on stars. I will be using a conservative BRM to move up, and my backer and myself have decided that I am going to crush souls and win teh monies ;)

      Thread Saver:


      I will be posting regular updates on both poker and my 'real' life stuff, and obv lots of titties ;)

      Hey,

      Nice to see a new SSS BLOG! May be we will meet at the tables. Once in a while I play NL25 at Stars (my main platform is FTP) ;)

      Why did you call the AI with AJo btw? Reads?

      yeah, sick reads ;)

      first guys open raise is fine, i thinkat this limit AJ is usually ahead of most open raise ranges so i dont mind 3betting him and getting it in.

      the shover was playing very loose, i'd seen him do similar moves with KQ and other hands where our AJ is just super juicy, it was pretty much a snap call from me, obviously we should fold out the open raiser most of the time unless he has somwhere in the range of top 5%, but in this situation he decides to juice the pot for us, so we say so long, and thanks for all the fish ;)


      just finished my second session for the night, ran super bad, -$26.63, EV was -$10.90, so well under EV, just kept running into the absolute top of players ranges, i'll be doing a thorough session review tommorow and i'll post any interesting/weird hands (of which i'm certain there is a few)

      as for the threadsaver, i want to share a really funny youtube vid i found the other day...

      that is all ;) big update of today to come soon, i'm currently 2nd in chips in a RCOOP depositors freeroll on stars ;)

      so i ended up somthing like 70th in the RCOOP freeroll, won a $22 seat, not sure what i'm going to do with it yet, probably just sell for T$ if they will let me do that.

      yesterday i managed to put in 3671 hands, at a mix of both SH and FR SSS (table selecting FTW!)... didn't really do me much good tho, as I managed to run 10BI under EV...

      so, since my 'comeback' i've put in a total of 5931 hands... here's the graph



      i know the downswing at the end of yesterday was 50% coolers and 50% tilt, but come on, that ev is just so fucked...

      in yesterday's first session, i had AA<KK, AA<99, KK<QQ, KK<AJo, AQ<AA on a QQA board... so fucked...

      i'm working my real job today, but tonight i'm going to go back over alot of hands and try to spot any leaks in either my FR or SH game...
