      To make things short my NLHE results for the past few months suck big time, had good run on September but apart from that other months didn't bring me much profits. This month so far sucks even more than previous ones, because I'm down quite a bit of Buy-ins, garf: (all NL)











      Ofc, the volume is pretty low since I'm a bit demotivated to play and feel bored of poker. So to spice things up, I've decided to degen around in a game that I have no clue how to play - PLO HU. What I'm gonna do is basically start w 500$ at PL50 and move up w 10bi for the new level until I reach 10k or go busto. If I run good I'll play around 4/6 hours/day unless I don't feel like playing that day or have things to do.


      The upsides to this are:

      1) If I go busto early, then whatever, I saved myself some time and can go back to grinding.

      2) If I go busto late then whatever, at least I'll have some fun and gain experience in this game.

      3) If I don't go busto, well, it's whatever too, since I'll have made 10k+ :f_biggrin:


      Also if i'll run it up to 10k before xmas I'll donate some % of winnings to charity.

      That's all.

      K, think I'm done for today.

      Degen-O-Roll stands at: 747.12$




      Few hands from today:

      Stacks:
      SB ($51.15)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.75, 2 players) Hero is BB 10:heart: 7:diamond: J:spade: Q:spade:
      SB raises to $1.50, Hero raises to $4.50, SB raises to $13.50, Hero calls $9

      Turn: 2:heart: ($100, 2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: 3:club: ($100, 2 players, 1 all-in)

      A:heart: A:club: 5:club: 2:diamond:

      SB wins $99.50 (net +$49.50)


      Preflop call is questionable I guess, but this villain has AAxx here like 99% of the time so I thought just gonna hope to flop 2pr or big draw and get it in. On flop standard all in given that I have 48% equity vs his hand, tho I expected to have way less than that which makes this hand interesting because it shows that I suck at estimating equity in omaha.

      Hero lost $50

      Meh, villain was raising flops in 3b pots quite a bit tho I expected him to give up on turn w air so I could bluff ship river. Turns out I got owned this time. In this hand I actually thought I have tons of equity vs stuff like he had because of 2 bdfds and a gutshot, expected to have ~32% or so, turns out only had 23%.

      That's all for now.

      Yesterday was kinda busy so didn't play and today I played incredibly bad, fortunately for me my opposition played even worse and I ran good too. :f_biggrin:

      Main reason for playing bad is that I'm inexperienced at this game and every decision is far from automatic so playing not 100% focused leads to highly increased amount of misplayed hands. In order to increase my focus I should try to get into normal sleeping schedule as well as dedicate more time for studying this game in order to build stronger understanding of equity/ranges yada yada.

      Also think I might start grinding some NL 6m while waiting for action at HU PLO.

      Anyway, roll: 1,193.62$

      It's 9:40 AM here in LTU and I haven't slept yet, I rly need to do something about my sleeping schedule. :f_biggrin:

      Went to sleep @ 7 AM or so, decided that I don't want to and went to grind. As mentioned in earlier post, opened some 6max NLHE and insta got tilted, there's just something about that game that every time someone sucks out on me I get all EMO. Like this dude:



      So anyway, lost few hundo in NL and then won few hundo in PLO HU. End result, roll stands at: 1.493,42$

      I really hate 6max at the moment, why the f do I even bother playing it. So yeah, f**k 6max, I'd rather watch films or w/e while waiting for action instead of tilting myself.



      Oh and, SPEW SPEW SPEWWWWWW :f_biggrin:

      Siiiiick song :f_love:



      Today I woke up @ 5Am w no alarm clock or anything and felt completely fresh, so I insta grabbed my laptop and played til like 9 AM. Think it was my top performance this month when it comes to quality of play. Just goes to show how awesome it is to sleep like a normal human being. :f_biggrin: So listen to your moms and go to bed early kids!

      I won some money but then made another session not so long ago and got god moded big time. I'm rly mad at myself because as usual I wasn't able to force myself to quit. :f_frown:

      Still day finished ok, roll stands at: 1,452.52$


      Anyway, while browsing forums I noticed that today is miniFTOPS Main Event and after looking it up on FTP I also noticed that I have one 75$ tournament ticket left for a bad day, so my plan for tonight is to ship the ME. :f_biggrin:

      Let us gogogo!

      I'm not busto yet in case someone is wondering. Just been busy with all the xmas stuff etc. Played few short sessions since last update and been ~break even, roll ~1,5k. Obv I've been a bad boy and didn't put in as much volume as planned so my plan to donate some % of winnings from this thingy extends to idk what time, maybe new year or one week after that.

      Currently I'm back at my parents house and gonna spend xmas here.

      Just so happens that today I've found one of the best threads of 2+2 I've seen so far: Starting part time job as male escort

      Ok So a maybe two years ago, im out down town very drunk, I walk into a club and see some sexy thing, with tight blue hot pants and tight white top, Im like yeah mate check that out, now i was very very drunk, so (as i recall) i go over start chatting, have a few drinks with her, dancing around etc. good time.

      Next thing i know I wake up in bed, dying for a piss, I see that she is sitting there watching the tv, I think, ah nice considerate girl, watching the TV on mute so she doest wake me up (cus some of em will just blast mtv as soon as they wake up ****s) anyway I go into the toilet, sit down for a piss and realise I am very hang over with a throbbing head ache.

      I then notice about 3-4 big empty water bottels and my blue bowl, that only comes out of the cupboard when i have a serious piss session, result i think but didnt remember much of it.

      I then go the fridge and take a massive gulp of ice cold water. get into bed. Next thing i got that watery feeing in my mouth, run to the toilet and start throwing my guts up, puking non stop, then i hear this "errr er errr er errrr errrr!" im like what the **** is that, I look around and she is standing there, yelling those sounds deaf peple make, "errrr er ererrrrr" i throw up again thinking mate this is not good, my head is in the bowl with puke every where, i break into a hot sweat and she is still going for it, "errrr errr errrrrrr!!" So i start yelling shut up go to bed i ok shut up, but obviously she cant hear me, plus my face is in the bog and i shouting between puking, this went on for about 5 mins, but felt like a year.

      So i finally stop she calms down and goes back to bed, i clean myself up and think lol she is deaf and dumb, so i go back into my bedroom and she is dressed im like, hhhmmm i don't really remember ****ing her and now the sick has passed i got a bone on, so i sit down and do the only sign language i know, I start sticking my middle finer though the OK sign on my other hand and she gets the hint, strips and i **** it, lovely little body, so half way though doing her, i feel sick again, i have to stop and throw up, but all the sick has gone so its just that horrid reaching, with not much coming out, when i stop i just think better let her go, so i do my next bit of sign language of the day and point at her, then make a roof sing with my hands and then point to the front door, I then grab 1000B and give it to her,she smile takes the money and goes.

      I lay down for 5 mins then start reaching again, so Im in the bog being sick and there is banging on my door, Im like who is this, must be her, i don't have the power to go to the door, then i hear her going "eerrrrr errrrr eerrrrr" FFS So i drag myself form the bog and open the door, she starts sign at me, and im like WTF??? she starts screaming "errrrrr errrrr" then my next door neighbour comes out, he sees me in my pants, sick everywhere with some bird "eerrr errrr errring" we all look at each other and he closes his door, so she comes into the room, and goes to the side and gets her jewellery, then leaves. I was sick for the better part of the day.

      So in conclusion when you are drunk it is easy to converse with a deaf and dumb person.
      Living life to it's fullest. :f_biggrin:
