      No, it's just enough. I need to get drunk today! But I hate an alcohol. Why? Because I like whiskey too much :D Thats why I'm not drinking cuz it's hard to stop :s_confused:

      Whole week of downswing plus couple of my own mistakes caused by a moments of tilt.

      But with every day this starting to be more and more ridiculous.

      Look at this two hands:

      And the worst thing is that my money goes to some fishy players and they lost it after couple of minutes. :f_mad:

      Get drunk or not. That is an important question for today!

      I'm suprised too.
      Sometimes auto-rebuy works with dalay I think.

      I even experienced a royal flush today.....against me of course .
      Don't comment my call at turn. Normally I'd fold because I knew that I lost but in this case I just wanted to see his hand and it was only 5 pounds. :f_biggrin:

      But I'm loosing money with rly good hands and all my profit is going away - whole present week.

      Whiskey and ice is already waiting in the fridge.
      Not drinking when playing.

      OMG, another sick day in a row.
      I just started and I was on great table with 2 donks.
      I knew that cuz I played with them before.

      But today is: "Flush for everone day".
      And another day when I can't make any profit...

      It's a good advice but...I quit smoking cigaretes and now I'm affraid to smoke anything.
      I was smoking something like 40 cigaretes for a day. 60 during drinking.

      That was a hard battle, thats why now I'm affraid to smoke anything because I don't want to be addicted of cigaretes again. I don;t like to be addicted of anything. Except of gym. I'm addicted of it, thats why I feel like a shit now.
      I've got an injury and can't training from something like 3 weeks :f_frown:


      Alkohol is a sh*t, I know that. I know how weaker I'm on the gym even if I was drinking not much and 3 days eariel.
      But now when I'm injuried and I'm on downswing...

      The funniest thing is how I get injuried.
      On Iron Maiden in Nottingham....durnig moshing.
      I slipt and fall....the first time in my life. Normally I'm knocking ppl to the ground and helping them to stand up. What a shame! :f_mad:

      I hited a draw! Whoa! Something new!
      Maybe it's a beggining of the end of downswing? :s_confused:
      It was lucky - I call it only because it was 3 players still in play.
      If I'd be only vs 1 opponent - I'd fold.

      Perhaps, but don't ask me about that.
      My BR is from starting 50$ and 1st deposit bonus plus monthly cashback from my pokerrom.

      But you sounds like TAG who is waiting half of day for best hand. And at the end nobody want's to check you.
      That's why you're not getting to much SP.

      I prefer to play LAG.
      Mpre fun. TAG's hates you, nobody knows what're u playing.
      PPl are going on tilt quite often.

      As an example, a hand 1 minute ago:

      I was playing TAG for a long perroid of time too with good results. But on mid stakes LAG's was driving me crazy.
      Then I decided to be like them.
      I started to check many diffrient ideas on the table loosing (investing) lot of money and after that I found my own style.

      Being a LAG, u should rejoice at all the suck outs u have inflicted on TAGs like me, perhaps. Rather than moaning and groaning about the odd downswing. Get a grip old chap.....

      You've got me wrong mate.
      I'm not moaning at all.

      It's just my way to change potential anger which can change itself to a tilt into something else.
      In this case into text on forum :D

      Try to find in any of my posts that I'm talking about hating poker, saying that I'll quit or kill myself :s_mad: .

      I'm joking almost all of the time despite load of bad luck at this week.


      Hands like this one are make me happy: :f_biggrin:

      About why I like to play LAG.

      I've got something like 40-50% steal rate and about 20-30% pre flop 3bet.

      This hand was vs opponent with VP13, PR12. He had enough of loosing blinds:

      I've got a fun, because I know what to expect from opponents.
      Of course I'm still at the beggining of road to be a good LAG player.
      I'm learning every day during play. Changing plays that aren't working, testing new ideas.
      Another examples, this hands are from last 10 minutes:

      Like u can see, I'm not playing bad. Mostly because good reads.
      But I'm loosing most important hands. Battles for opponents full stacks.
      By bad luck.

      Alright, not always, this just happened a while ago.
      I knew that UTG will go with AT-AK that means I've got 55%.
      And it was a possibility that BTN is with Ax too.
      That could make my chances even higher.
      But I was wrong with that one :f_confused:

      I've read the first few hands but not all, and sorry but I don't think any of them was a bad beat at all. Plus I don't think they were well played.

      So I'm only looking hands from original post:

      Hand 1: sick slowplay, even if he does not hit you don't extract value. Just bet €7 or €8 there (mind it's even multiway) and you could expect a raise from his two pair - THEN it would be a bad beat if the 9 comes and you are both AI.

      Hand 2: against what range are you value-shoving here? You are turning the nut flush into a bluff. He's giving you amazing odds for the turn call (mind he can have a FH already) and amazing odds for calling again on the river and shipping an ok pot. By shoving he's folding trash and you're only leveling yourself.

      Hand 3: on that board vs. 2 limpers I'm not in love for the lead. They will never ever fold there and you are not leading for value. And even if you check, with a bet and a raise I'd just fold. You have a pretty strong draw but not even a nut draw (mind that BOTH for flush and straight they can have stronger draws), and against a set you're in bad shape because the board can pair. If money was invested in the pot before, I'd shove obv. But for a limped pot? Against those fish I'd think you can get better spots than *at best* flipping.

      Hand 4: again, against what range do you bet river? He's folding all trash and yet again you are getting levelled by straights and flushes. Just check and be happy to win a small pot with what was a very mediocre hand until the river, or check and bluffcatch with a set on that board.

      Hand 5: Wait a minute. Is this limit hold'em and I'm mistaken? Why on earth are you min-3bettting JJ from small blind? Either call or indeed 3bet to at least 3x (considering he has a small stack) and be ready to get it in with JJ. if you don't want to get it in, just call and keep him with whole range - even though more often than not I see those SS people getting in with AT+/88+ so I'd be happy with my JJ here (FE added). If you had 3bet then just cbet the flop and if 4th spade hit turn and you were AI that *might* be a *tiny* bad beat as it was a close spot anyway (mind that if he calls the 3bet, which I doubt considering stack, both A and K of spades are live and he can well have AK and the straight already WITH the flush redraw so you're spot is not exactly super-great).

      And so on and so forth, sorry for being lazy and not analyzing them all.

      I think you are pretty far off beat when if comes to relative hand strenght. I was trying to raise some more discussion about it on my blog, please feel free to join.

      Sorry if I sound a bit blund, believe me I'm just trying to be honest and help out as I appreciate when people do the same to me. If you think I'm just a fish completely mistaken, my apologies in advance as well as I'm learning the game and that might well be the case.

      I know more often than not we are just posting to steam off but you might as well just take the chance to plug what seems to be BIG leaks in your game.

      Sorry for my english too as it's my second language. Take care. And do get drunk, just don play poker afterwards (or, ahn, play on my table :D ).

      You're right mate.
      I played bad!

      I checked my earnings chart on PT3 and I'm playing worse with every day now.
      I see that problem is in my mindset.

      And it starts when I got injury and was unable to go on the gym I think.
      Now I'm loosing my patience very easly and I'm angry when someone bluffs me. I'm trying to win too many hands.

      Now 2nd day I'm playing with whiskey in my hand.
      Normally I'm against playing while drinking but now I'm looking for answers whats goes wrong.
      And I think that I've got an answer.
      During drinking and playing I'm listening to music.
      I'm totally chilled out and I'm playing automaticly.
      Now I'm playing well and I've got great results again!

      Now I need to find a solution how to fix that before I'll become an alcoholic :s_o:
