      i used to be a bodog grinder but when they decided to stop my rakeback with my grandfathered account last july 1 i decided to move. I started with 100$ last jan 2010 and ran it up to 6,000$ with 20BRM last year but was hit with a huge downswing. I withdrew around 2000$ and decided to start allover again this year. No graphs for 2010 since i played withouth HEM

      I have been playing mostly NL5 and NL10 just for fun this year and with a less aggressive 40BRM hoping to get my bankroll to 6000$ again but with less stress. i decided to move to another room and be serious with poker after july 1. i made this blog to motivate me and to help me keep track of my progress. i'll be starting out with a bankroll of 400EURO and a 30% rakeback deal. will try to be a NL200 reg by end of the year.

      here is my graph for NL5 and NL10 on bodog since feb to june. mostly play 6max 4 tables but i think i can turn it up a notch and play 6 tables on my new room. i play mostly on my laptop and usually allocate around 1-2hours a day.

      still waiting for my funds to be transferred to my new room. will probably start in a couple of days from now.

      so i was able to transfer my funds now and will be playing on boss media. but i cant seem to get my Hud working.

      posted here

      http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/32...media-1071081/

      would appreciate if anyone could help. had the hud running on 1table and it was missing on the other table. don't know why, was only testing for 2 tables. played like 25 hands and won 1stack on the NL4 EURO tables. it was lagging at first before it could load properly on the first table.

      does this have to do with the different currencies on the table or am i doing something wrong?


      *PS* does anyone know if the HUD will work in auto mini view also?

      its been 4hours already can't still get my HEM hud to work properly. it lags a lot, sometimes only the number of hands i play will update and the rest of the table will be 0/0. sometimes it works for only 1 table. can't get it to work on more than one. this is so frustrating. i wanna play but not without a hud.

      on a positive note i played like 30 hands and was able to win around 10euros now. if i can keep up this winrate i wouldn't mind playing without a hud but we all know that's not possible. so FML

      hey man, maybe u use win7? if u do, there was an update few days ago to it and HUD didn't work properly cuz of it.
      u should go check software forums in here and there should be this problem, so just follow links and HUD will be fixed :)
      gl with ur journey to PP :f_biggrin:

      are you on boss media also? is your HUD working properly? i can't put in volume not until i get this darn thing to work. from the looks of it, its gonna be awhile. already sent an email to HEM support. crossing my fingers

      i need to be a nit coz i still tilt quite a lot and sometimes i end up flipping on NL400. working on my mindset right now, once i figure it out ill be back to 20BRM.

      still trying to figure out whats wrong with my HEM though. pretty excited to play on a euro site this time. too bad HEM is disagreeing with me

      so i tried to put in volume today but failed. have so many emails to do and a meeting coming up in 2hours from now. will probably play later at night, won't be going out on a friday night.

      been playing mostly NL4$ euro and GBP tables and NL10 of the same curriencies. roll is at around 450euro. will take shots and NL20 when i get 600euro.

      my graph so far since i started on boss media. hope i can keep this up :f_biggrin: :f_biggrin:



      don't have any interesting hands yet. mostly standard spots. im still trying to get used to the software. folded a straight on one hand because i was so confused at the other table. did not know who was in the pot or who folded. next thing i new i timed out on the other table. but whatever, its only going to take a couple of sessions before i get used to the software.

      been playing 4tables.

      played 1000 hands today. managed to be up with 2.5 buyins.

      some interesting hands

      villain is loose passive fish and 53/0/0 VPIP / PFR / AF over 100 hands wit a very high bet IP if checked to him. i decided to checkraise him and since he would be betting air most of the time and i get to take down pot if he folds. when he flat, thought he had 7x or a missed draw.

      played 2000+ hands so far for a profit of 27$


      had an interesting hand. im sure river shove was a mistake. still can't quite determine if river should have been a bet/fold line maybe 1/3 of pot or c/c 1/3 potsize bet and fold to anything bigger.

      betfold lets me get value out of his small pp 88-1010. cant still determine what hands i can get value of i c/c the river, all i have is a bluff catcher by then. will be thinking about it over coffee this afternoon. will try to put in more volume later. not much traffic on boss right now.

      villain was playing 28/23 vpip/pfr and was opening almost any button and defended a lot of 3bets, with low fold to cbet on flop. so im thinking he would be defending a very wide range of his hands.

      run good started to run off just when i played 2,000 hands more this session. results? 14$ down, good thing i played NL4 6tables. damage would have been bigger if i played on my usual limits lol

      not much i could do really, got rivered a couple of times, my made hands couldn't get paid, etc etc. just the usual. the old me would be tilting quite a bit right now. good thing about marathon sessions is you get used to break even hand stretches or small drops of buyins here and there afterwhile you get used to it and you tilt less.

      will be back tomorrow for another session. current roll is at 431Euros.

      hand an interesting 4bet spot not really sure what to do with it. too lazy to run the math on it. villain was very aggro and was playing 54/20/21.4/3 VPIP PFR 3bet AF over 43 hands, thought he was tilting because he lost 2 striaght pots to me. :f_biggrin: will be thinking about it for the next 3 hours.
