      Unfortunately yeah since the rake is esp bad@micros ... so you have to go with the biggest platforms in the micros coz they have lowest rake ...

      So it has to be FT/PS/Party ... Party won't give me FDB so yeah it has to be PS sadly :tongue:

      But hey, you play FR anyway, no?

      Anyways, had some NL10 fun and ... well this is my fav hand of the day :f_biggrin:

      Ty, and btw this NL10 fun session started really gruesomely ...
      Like in 500 hands I flopped or turned trips 4-5 times and every time the other guy already had a set/boat or 2outered :D

      But ... I manhandled this minidownswing like a pro :f_cool:

      Hehe, you mean you reached your stop loss limit and stopped or smth?
      I've never set those for myself coz I don't tilt that way ...
      Usually I play as long as I feel I'm in control and when I notice
      emotions taking over and I start making spewmoves then I just stop & re-evaluate after some time whether I'm in good enough "shape" to return to the tables or call it a day ...

      That way I've had many days where I lose ~10BI's and climb back
      out of the hole =)

      It's just that I told TT I'd try to get in 20K hands per month (I know it doesn't sound like much, but I don't have a lot of spare time), so I set myself a target of 20 1K hand sessions per month. Playing 6 tables, that's about 20 2 hour sessions. I have to go to bed after that as I am fat and old.

      I also just play whilst I am still "into" the game :) Somestimes if i'm not feeling it my sessions will last 30 minutes, other times i've had my sessions last about 2.5 hours.

      If you insist. I await my training plan with interest. As you can see, I already have some cycling experience.

      Just finished my NL50 shot ... nothing spectacular happened, but it went well I guess ... ended up 1bi , first two hands HU I was really liking my run, first hand flopped flush (though unfortunately fish just called down and shoved river 4th flush card, so fold there) ... and immediately the next hand flopped nut str8, but he snapfolded that one :f_biggrin:

      Didn't notice much difference from NL25 so far ... the hardest part for me was to 6 table, coz after having conveniently played 3-4 BIG tables of rush ...

      Suddenly 6 small tables were getting the best of me a bit and I was timing out on some tables from time to time ... playing rush has made me a multitabling fish :f_biggrin:

      And to get in decent volume, I will have to be playing like 9 tables at least and I HATE small tiled tabled (cascaded is NOT an option, dunno how ppl play that at all :f_biggrin: ).

      So I guess I have to scrap up like a $100 and buy an extra (used) screen.

      Graph for the session.

      What is it with moving up & runbad always going hand in hand? :f_biggrin:

      Anyway, I feel like I'm perfectly capable of beating this limit ...
      As soon as I adjusted to the new stack/bet sizings etc etc,
      there was nothing new about the limit for me.

      So hopefully I'll run decent enough that moving back down
      won't become necessary and just ... grind it out til the next one :)

      From tomorrow I'll be moving to Stars though for a while to
      boost my roll with the FDB ...
      Gotta use all the edge we can get and since the bonuses become
      less and less important/attractive in relation to the growing BR ...
      Now is the time to whore it up =)

      Some of you were interested in my FT layout stuff ... so here it is

      http://allislost.eu/up/uploads/StaticMoth Custom Layout.rar

      As for instructions ... C:\Program Files (x86)\Full Tilt Poker\Graphics

      There you will see a folder named NewTable ...
      just make a backup of it just in case and then copy/overwrite my version of that folder ...
      Simple as that (unless latest updates have fucked smth up, though it still works smooth as silk for me :) )

      NL50 shot so far ...

      Hands: 4340
      Profit: -$154 [3.5BI under EV + some coolers]

      So still hanging in there and trying to do my best to not have to move down.



      This hand I played horribly coz he was an unknown & new to the table, so I got all paranoid that "he must be cold4betting here coz he's unknown atm & thinks he can get away with it" ... though this is seldom the case here obv.

      So I wasn't thinking str8 there and totally fucked it up ...
      @flop I was still in that paranoid mindset "ah, perfect flop for him to cbet, I might have the best hand + gutter, gotta call 1/3 PSB".

      Though in reality if he isn't a COMPLETE monkey, this hit his cold4bet range sooo haard ... JJ+/AK, turn he snapshoved and then obv fold.

      Now the gay part ... like 3 hands later, I get QQ again ... and yep, you guessed it, 4bet me again.

      So obv get it in coz:

      a) seems to be a monkey
      b) might think I'm tilt 3betting him

      aaand heelloooo ... nice setups for him if he had the nuts in the previous hand as well. Bastard even slowrolled me pre :f_biggrin:
