      Hi all, I am Busto

      Introduction

      I am 18 years old Customer service and Marketing Student from Finland. I will graduate 29th may and after that I am not sure what to do. I got few plans, but nothing is sure yet. But lets come back on this after this is topical.

      Why blog?

      Blog can help me to write up my ideas
      It helps me to control my tilt and bankroll
      helps me to develop my game
      Meet new people
      and lots of positive things, blog is fully useful


      Poker
      At the moment I am playing Short handed Omaha, but when got Bank roll biggier I am going to play Holdem Heads up also.
      I am going to take 1 step at the time and just building my bankroll. I will develop my game by all possible means. I have everything available to beat micro stakes at least. The rest is up to me.

      STEP 1

      10k hands in plo4

      At the moment situation is this;

      my fav from boyce avenue is:
      I think it will be my favorite now also :D :D :D



      I was shotting plo10 (Had information about very VERY aggressive fish in the table) after fish quitted I quitted. (I had loss limit if some suckouts comes so I wont bust my roll)

      and todays plo4 session went pretty well. Couple mistakes. Worst mistakes cost me 150bb :f_o:

      I think I have some kind of god run! I hope I wont be tiltin when DS comes. Have to prepare for the Downswing.



      Game analysis

      I have to concertrate more to 3bettings from IP, and less 3bets from OOP with marginal hands.
      Have to stop 3betting big dry pocket pairs from blinds.
      Also concertrate to change my game plans according the opponents.
      Need to learn fold more against players with semi-good hands


      in the day time didnt had feelings to play or study poker so I took a nap and after that I was like reborn. I did some session rewievs and watched 2 videos about 3bettings.

      Just wondering how I feel when I come up with DS lol, need to prepare that :s_biggrin: Now I feel perfect, but its normal after this kind of run.

      My worst mistake in todays session;

      CO JohnJumbal (€8.16)
      BTN BustoTinker (€5.91)
      SB humppasuti (€4)
      BB EnaBnena12 (€4.48)

      Pre-Flop: (€0.06, 4 players) BustoTinker is BTN Q:diamond: K:spade: K:diamond: A:diamond:
      JohnJumbal calls €0.04, BustoTinker raises to €0.18, 2 folds, JohnJumbal calls €0.14

      Easy raise. We want to grow the pot. blinds are nits, but if they pay we can flop monster nuts/draw in flop. And we can get values from lower sets/straights/flushs and we can hit top two pairs and get values from straight draws

      Flop: 4:heart: 2:diamond: 7:club: (€0.42, 2 players)
      JohnJumbal checks, BustoTinker bets €0.31, JohnJumbal raises to €1.35, BustoTinker calls €1.04

      Opponent is limp/calling (weak), but semi nit aggressive player. Folding
      64 % in c-bet in flop. But aggressive player in post flop so I though he is reraising me without hits or somekind of draw/wrap. What would you do in this? reraising villain in flop and when villain goes all in you call/fold? Or just calling and look turn?


      Turn: 6:club: (€3.12, 2 players)
      JohnJumbal bets €3.12, BustoTinker goes all-in €4.38, JohnJumbal calls €1.26

      Turn call was terrible. He is not enough aggressive to do 2barrel in turn without he is ahead of us. Cant say how terrible that turn is... its very terrible... FOLD FOLD FOLD! I aint even saying what hero was thinking in that turn...

      River: A:spade: (€11.88, 2 players, 1 all-in)

      Final Pot: €11.88
      BustoTinker shows a pair of Aces
      Q:diamond: K:spade: K:diamond: A:diamond:
      JohnJumbal shows two pairs Fours and Deuces
      J:club: Q:spade: 4:spade: 2:club:

      JohnJumbal wins €11.29 (net +€5.38)

      BustoTinker lost €5.91

      BB retross (€4)

      Pre-Flop: (€0.06, 3 players) BustoTinker is BTN 10:spade: 10:club: 3:diamond: J:spade:
      BustoTinker raises to €0.14, ButrosButr raises to €0.38, retross folds, BustoTinker calls €0.24

      If you are thinking about my call with dry TTxx it was just setmaining. we were both 200bb deep so I believe it is okay to call from IP.

      Flop: 10:diamond: 8:spade: 3:heart: (€0.80, 2 players)
      ButrosButr bets €0.60, BustoTinker raises to €2.10, ButrosButr calls €1.50

      Getting values from big pocket pairs and just value bet for him (he is a fish + got good informations about him)

      Turn: 10:heart: (€5, 2 players)
      ButrosButr checks, BustoTinker bets €2.50, ButrosButr calls €2.50

      So epic hand I didnt want to scare him to fold his hand. But I wanted to grow the pot so in river I can get rest of his stacks if everything goes great.
      I also bet half a pot in this kind of turn without trips in some spots.

      River: A:spade: (€10, 2 players)
      ButrosButr goes all-in €4.72, BustoTinker goes all-in €3.51

      A came river and he tried to bluff with that scare card. Thank you, I didnt need to think how to get most of your stacks in river :s_biggrin:

      Final Pot: €18.23
      BustoTinker shows four of a kind Tens

      BustoTinker wins €16.17 (net +€7.68)

      GAME ANALYS on 14.1 morning session
      Coolers and bad game cant say nothing else. But +EV games most of them :s_biggrin:

      new thing to pay attention is game flow!

      In next sessions just keeping concentrat to 3bet pot games, Playing from position and choosing hands in PF more carefully! NUT POTENTIAL HANDSS!!!!

      1 BIG and IMPORTANT is mathematic! Need to concertate equitys and Pot odds etc!

      I did some kind of tablet to myself. It gives me some 3BET game information how to play. And I got notes in it. And I can add new notes when I learn more heh :f_biggrin:

      I do table selecting, No idea sitting with nit Micro rollers. Not enough traffic in Entraction so I move to pokerstars! Next sessions will be there!

      Some hands that I played in morning. Didn´t had energy to look yesterdays 2k hand history. So Now 1. Session max. 500 hands. And no new sessions after I have done previous session review/analys. Maybe I look them over some day, but I dont promise anything about that.


      Hope my posted hands and comments can help someone of the readers find some of their own leaks! If some of these hands gives you some ideas/thoughs I really hope you give me a comment so we can think about hands more accurate and we can get into some calculations and/or just chat on some hands/spots and develop our game like this :s_biggrin:

      There wasnt any very special hands that was difficult to solve how to play that in morning session so didnt post any "special hands" just posted some big pot hands and I post my difficult hands to hand analys forum threads not here.

      Not able to tell anything what I was thinking. I was in tilt mode. I was playing plo10 stakes becouse didnt had good tables open in plo4 stakes becouse entraction traffic :heart: . After this I ended session like I do always when I find myself be in tilt mode. Glad I can do that :f_biggrin:

      But still :s_mad:

      Game Analys;
      Fold more marginal hands. Dont play so mutch marginal hands in flop, fold them! Keep the pot small with marginal hands, GROW IT WHEN YOU HAVE MONSTER! DONT OVER PLAY YOUR TOP TWO!

      Didnt remember its so soft games in pokerstars lol

      Entraction they never went PF all in with KKxx hands. In pokerstars they go and that means profit!

      This month I will be playing plo5 in Pokerstars. Next month I will move up to plo10 and hopefully we are gona raise our stakes in 2 months to plo20.

      We are gona play max. 2table at the time so we can do mathematically best decision. Our goal is to get notes from players and exploit them. Table selecting we are gona sit down on those tables, where are the biggiest fishs.

      We are gona move up to plo20 when we have 30bins for plo20.

      HOW?
      We do all our decision based on game flow, notes, hem and mathematic.
      And our main goal is to play mostly in position!
      We do session reviews and calculations!

      From now on we think everything on Big Blinds.

      I play when I feel I can do best decision. We are not playing for money. We are playing for build bankroll. And that will need excellent play, good run and supporting!

      Step 1 is almost done! Results at the moment is this;






      With Love

      Hi, nice to hear :f_biggrin:

      well I believe I can beat plo4 and plo10. After that I am going to follow this kind of brm;

      30bin for plo20

      50bin for plo50

      100bin for plo100

      100bin for plo200

      100bin for plo400


      maybe even 200 for next stake

      I have stop limit 3 bins per table and 6 bins per session.

      I am not sure yet, how I am going up and building this bankroll. I make steps that I follow. First step was to play 10k hands plo4. I am telling step 2 when I have done with step 1. What I benefit with that step 1? I find my biggiest leaks and can block them! Every step has something that benefit me. It´s not just playing 10k hands it´s mutch more. I will tell more about my steps after I have taken couple steps.

      Omaha has crazy swings so if I go broke when I am playing plo4/plo10 I deposit more

      At the moment I am playing just with 2 tables becouse if I play more tables I am not good enough to keep my winrate positive. And with 2 table playing I can develop my game. I try to do my decision based on math, notes on villains, hem, and gameflow.

      I posted few hands "Don´t say he has it!!!?" and "Let´s flip, no? wtf man?"

      Firstly "Don´t say he has it" hand Better option would be shove all in in flop if we have 100bb stacks, but in this spot we have 200bb deep so only call would be better option. With call I am keeping worse hands in. If I raise they fold and 9 and 3 sets only continues.

      and "Let´s flip, no? wtf man?" another option to play that hand is only call him. We know his hand but he doesnt know ours. Turn check-call becouse we got equity. and if we miss our outs in river we fold. and if we hit, he is not propably folding his straight to 1 bet.

      I have founded way to have golden runs :s_biggrin: Listening great music and do mathematically correct decisions you will run golden all most every time you play! And sometimes when you dont run golden, you are not gona tilt and you are gona notice that you are very happy! :f_pleased:

      Every 1 can just try it out, and let me know how you did;



      Watched 1 video about 3bettings, and searched leaks from Hem

      Founded leaks!

      - I am doing too mutch c-bets on 2-3 way flops!
      - Less 3bettings from big blinds with marginal hand!
      - No set maining with 99xx type of hands! JJ/TT minimum depends the spot!

      Moves to add my game
      I am gona add 4bet against people who 3bet mutch more then only AAxx.

      What is going to happend when you sit 400bb deep in position to a fish who also has 400bb stack?

      you are going to lose with top set to runner flush :f_eek:


      What you should do? Leave the table. There is lot´s of fishs in internet poker. We are not playing for money. yet.

      after that you are not able to sitout that table and in pokerstars plo5 you can reload with 12.50$ and you are in tiltmode when you do this.

      Step 2 is about tilt and manage it. Step 1 is only for finding leaks.

      I am going to have couple days break on poker now. Can´t handle this right now :s_evil:

      We have no rush to complete our steps. But I think we are done with step 1 in this month. Next month we start our Step 2 and then starts the serious part and maybe the hardest part of this project. Our journey will be long and difficult!

      The most important thing is to find biggiest and dummiest leaks and then learn to manage tilt and how to prevent it!

      Everything is cool now. Tilt went over.

      I got few plans what I am going to do today for develop my game. And prepare for next steps!

      More about that ^^ in next update! This is going to be awesome!

      Why we are playing poker?

      Friend of mine recommended me to watch this series. Is it good? Should I spend my time to watch it?



      Omaha has so huge variance, and it´s possible that everything can happen so I will be little bit more tighter with my BMR.

      Our Stop Loss limit on table is 3 and our Stop Loss limit is 6 on session. If we win like 7 bins and then lose 6 we stop playing.

      I want to have at least 100€ behind bankroll for plo5, so we need to raise our bank roll to 150$ or 200$ to be able to take shots to plo10 stakes. So after we have done with Step 1 we are still going to gather up money in plo5 so we have enough roll to shot plo10 stakes.

      I will start playing plo10 when I feel right.

      We are aiming to plo20 stakes very fast. (with couple steps only). So our job with real money can start.

      After we have achieve stakes plo50 I have chance to grind my status to Diamond and join Pokerstrategy.com VIP Tours. I believe I will be joining for Barcelona, but I hope I can do it sooner.

      I have added new way to develop my game;
      - Following Omaha hand analys Thread!

      I am not going to reveal our next steps, I will do it when the time comes.

      These first steps are very important to us for achieve our goal (build our bankroll) with out these first steps we are not able to do this. This way our failures will be cheaper and we don't lose so much money on our leaks before we find them. We have no pressures with this. We modify our game all the time.

      I have to start search new laptop because I am moving to Spain for couple months and I don´t want to be away from tables or this lovely forum.

      Anyone of readers of this blog is from Spain? Or has been there?
      I would like to hear some opinions about Spain and places.

      Can you recommend me something that I could try out in Spain?

      Like some places to go?
      Restaurants? (for Spanish food)
      Clubs? (for partying)
      Beach? (to feed my eyes)
      Wine to test?
      Or anything?

      Hopefully I will be also able to visit Pokerstrategy.com headquarter. And have a tour in strategy.com premises.

      BTW; What kind of tricks are you (Readers) using to control tilt or prevent it? It would be awesome to hear how other players take care this "problem"

      with love
