      I am watching to this video:http://www.pokerstrategy.com/video/10263/

      In 19.45 chenny has A2o in co and he says this is definitely a fold.Why he tells that?I put the hand in nash calculator and he says range must be Ax for shove.PLease someone to explain this to me


      In 22.00 he folds 78s from the button.Which hands you would have pushed there,so deep?

      1)I put all my hands in sit n go wizard for analysing. 9/10 of my hands are correct.The 1 that i make mistake is because i dont push J7 from bu or i dont push Q5o from sb.All my crucial hands are right

      2)Watching videos,taking notes but nothing helps the situation.

      Dunno what else to do.Gonna watch vampire diaries or some movie.I totally lost my motivation right now.Cheers

      Ouch!
      That sucks!

      Well it seems like you are playing in a right way( The EV line is going up) So you just need to be patient, keep reviewing hands and take breaks like you did when you need to :)

      Good luck!

      My graph for today: (no mood to play more):






      I had 7 heads up in 1v1 situation.I won only one with the following shit happened:


      1-A7 shove on A8
      2-A3 shove on A5
      3-88 shove on KQ lost
      4-A3 shove on K2 lost
      5-A2 shove on AQ
      6-A7 shove on A7

      How is possible to shove everytime on a bigger ace or in an ace generally when i am heads up?Hilarious :s_mad: :s_mad: :s_mad:


      My lifetime graph:




      I run -234.4$ bellow ev in 6.50$.Hilarious
      My ev adjusted for today 21.5%.My ev for today -6.5%.Hilarious
