      So I took a break from poker for many months, but now I'm back.
      I restarted at .25/.50 and won at 12bb(blinds)/100 over a few thousand hands.
      I just moved up a few days ago to .5/1 and have been break even due to variance.
      If you want graphs I will be happy to show some.

      Anyway, I'm starting this blog to document my journey of moving up and improving my skill. Since I started again I have an anti-tilting method I've stuck to. I only play 20 minutes and record the amount I won or loss so I can get an idea of average amounts won and lost in that time. I play better using this method and am more aware of table selection.

      I will pick one hand out of each session I played starting today.

      Today I played 1 session and ran extremely hot hitting quad 9's and up 66bb so I just stopped since I have other things to do today, otherwise I would have played more.

      Play hand

      $0.5/$1 Fixed-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q, J.
      2 folds, BU raises, SB folds, Hero calls.

      Flop: (4.5 SB) 5, 3, Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets, Hero raises, BU 3-Bets, Hero calls.

      Turn: (5.25 BB) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      River: (5.25 BB) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets, BU calls.

      Final Pot: 7.25 BB.

      Results follow:

      BU shows two pairs, aces and queens(Ac Ad).
      Hero shows three of a kind, queens(Qs Jd).

      Hero wins with three of a kind, queens(Qs Jd).

      Now I new this player was on the loose passive side, but at the time I thought he would bet the turn. After recognizing the potential for a check there, I should either bet out the turn or cap the flop, and I think capping the flop is the best since I get the extra small bet in and he will probably call down. I think it's just too unlikely he will get scared and fold, even if he does I have to get value from hands that will call.

      Capping flop is, of course, the best if you know that the queen is coming on the turn. :D

      You're right, I only have tpgk and I'm 3bet by a passive player, so I should just bet out turn with improvement to avoid check.

      I think it's played well. I think you can't expect a passive player to stop betting once he starts swinging.

      The good thing about short sessions like 20 min sessions is that you can review even the smaller hands after the session to find some leaks there.

      However I don't recommend recording win/loss after every 20 min session, that will just fuck your head up more cause you won't be able to keep money out of your head which could make you vulnerable to tilting. I'd rather recommend looking at profits or losses only after extended periods of time so that your play isn't affected by results.

      Be process oriented, not result oriented.

      So I played 3 sessions today and ran about 12bb/100

      Here is 1 hand from each session.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.5/$1 Fixed-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, J.
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises, 3 folds, Hero calls.

      Flop: (4.5 SB) T, 2, 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets, Hero calls.

      Turn: (3.25 BB) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets, Hero raises, MP3 calls.

      River: (7.25 BB) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      Final Pot: 7.25 BB.

      Results follow:

      MP3 shows high card ace(Ad Qc).
      Hero shows high card king(Kd Jd).

      MP3 wins with high card ace(Ad Qc).

      I wasn't sure about raising the turn but had so many outs, I think betting the river would be bad, but I could be wrong. So I don't like my raise anymore, fold equity is just too low.

      Hero shows two pairs, sixes and fives(6s 6c).

      SB wins with two pairs, kings and fives(Kd Kc).

      I don't like this calldown, I know better. Especially against a 11 pfr player that 3bet me.

      Hero bets, BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: 3.25 BB.

      This hand I really misplayed for sure. I need to check-raise the flop oop, I don't know why I tried to wait until the turn.

      I like doing this also because it forces me to find hands that i might have played bad and review.

      I find that knowing my largest loss and win and average actually helps me tilt less because I am more comfortable with whatever happens because it fits with the averages.

      Hi overson!
      Gratz to the nice restart! Subscribed. About the raise with KJ on T9xx: if you do this I think you must barrel the river too. But semi bluff usually don't work on that limit. If you have shown only winning hands in the session before, it works a lot more though.

      Cheers

      I'm not sure about barrelling the river with KJ is a good idea, the board is absolutely not scary, and what we're represeinting is so small part of our range that we're going to get called down by ace high almost always. I might be wrong though.

      I will submit that KJ hand in the hand review forum. Today I ran badly and played 3 sessions. I'm noticing I tend to call down more when I'm running badly.

      Here are the hands.

      Final Pot: 10 BB.

      Results follow:

      MP3 shows two pairs, queens and fours(Tc Qh).
      Hero shows two pairs, nines and fours(9h 5d).

      MP3 wins with two pairs, queens and fours(Tc Qh).

      This guy only has aggression of 1.1 so I think I need to respect his turn raise and even against most opponents I should fold this hand.

      The passive player with 0 pfr check-raised the turn in a multiway pot. I believe this is one of those rare spots where I should be folding my overpair.

      I think he would have bet many K or J so I can narrow his range and should have bet river for value.

      Hi!

      95o you should fold pre, A9s hand you should 3bet pre. A9s I like the check on the river, Ax is probably c/folding anyway and if he's fishy/passive he can easily check Jx or even Kx there.

      Happy to see a FL blog! :)

      with 95o I have about 20% equity vs an MP2 and wide sb call range and need 17% to call, but that's without considering position and up to 10% outs i usually won't get because of the need to fold the flop. So I think you are right, 28% equity would probably be a better calling range there. This is the range I calculated would be good to call in this situation: 33+,A2s+,K6s+,Q9s+,J9s+,T8s+,98s,87s,A8o+,KTo+,QJo

      In the A9 hand I had a flushdraw on the flop and had about 50% equity, so I think I actually should have check-raised the flop if I don't 3bet preflop.

      I checked in equilab and even if he folds Ace high and checks all Jx I still have 51% vs his calling range(its made of pocket pairs and small pairs that were picked up), but I think many players do call Ace high in this spot from what I've noticed.

      I played 3 sessions today and ran the worst I ever have, wiped out over 25% of my bankroll today. I believe a contributing factor was the tables were not ideal and usually aren't on sunday.

      Here is a hand from each session that I question:

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, Q.

      Hero checks, BU bets, Hero calls.

      Turn: (3.25 BB) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets, Hero calls.

      River: (5.25 BB) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: 5.25 BB.

      I know my turn call is bad, I don't have nearly enough outs. I think this illustrates my automatic tendency to calldown when I'm running bad. Really I think I just wasn't paying enough attention.

      Again, not paying enough attention I didn't bet my straight. I think i was too used to losing to easily notice a winning hand.

      and here I'm folding top pair too easily. It seems my mind was being affected.

      Ah, well, you have posted a selection of hands i recognize only too well from when i run badly, (like every time I play at Stars). Then throw in a couple of hands where you have second nuts (or any form of second best hand that is really worth a bet/raise) and face the nuts. Throw in a couple somewhattilty-but-not-totallytilty loose plays because you are frustrated. Then throw in genuinely bad play because of real tilt and temporarily damaged brain cells. Throw in, as well, people exploiting you. You know bloody well you are going to be check-raised on the river. Yet you'll bet because your hand beats his "range" (because it normally would) and checking is too weak. Then you call his raise (For the twentyfifth time that session and he shows up with nuts again, again with a check-raise on the river). People start flatting your preflop raises. They begin peeling EVERY flop and turn, ..., Every style works against you. The tight fish (33/2/3) has you beat every time with his kicker, The calling station hits his undercards every time, every normal player having a draw hits it, your AA (plenty of them) all get busted, you decide to play back at the maniac by re-bluffing him, ...,

      Then you are in for a real treat!

      Recognize any of this?

      I know what you mean about every style winning against me. But I don't think I've played really horribly that often. Just makes me question my skill when I'm running bad every day for days on end. But yes, most of the time my AA is beaten it seems. But I believe in betting the river as long as I estimate his range half decent.

      This is important. It's a good thing that you don't let it affect you that much. You will certainly win if you can sustain your A-game. I am, on the other hand, affected by losing pots. But that is my problem :f_biggrin: . Nice blog!

      I play pokerstars now.
      Even though I'm running bad now, my winrate is still 9bb/100 at .25/.5 over 7000 hands. This must be the variance trying to correct my winning streak. If I am comfortable at 10k hands I may switch my bankroll all to pokerstars and move up.

      So a few hands from yesterday:

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 Fixed-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8, 8.
      CO calls, BU raises, SB folds, Hero 3-Bets, CO calls, BU calls.

      Flop: (9.4 SB) 4, Q, Q (3 players)
      Hero bets, CO raises, BU folds, Hero calls.

      Turn: (6.7 BB) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets, Hero calls.

      River: (8.7 BB) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: 8.7 BB.

      This turn is ugly and I think folding wouldn't be so bad.



      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 Fixed-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8, 5.
      MP2 folds, MP3 calls, CO raises, BU calls, SB folds, Hero calls, MP3 calls.

      Flop: (8.4 SB) 3, 4, 6 (4 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets, CO folds, BU folds, Hero calls.

      Turn: (5.2 BB) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      River: (5.2 BB) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      Final Pot: 5.2 BB.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of fours(8h 5s).
      MP3 shows a pair of fours(Js Qs).

      MP3 wins with a pair of fours(Js Qs).

      Some may argue the preflop, but odds are so good that its at least close.
      I like betting out on the A with my strong draw or even raising the flop.



      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 Fixed-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K, J.
      Hero raises, 3 folds, BB calls.

      Flop: (4.4 SB) K, 2, 5 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets, BB calls.

      Turn: (3.2 BB) A (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets, BB raises, Hero calls.

      River: (7.2 BB) 7 (2 players)
      BB bets, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: 7.2 BB.

      I think I played this bad, I need to fold the turn, or calldown. Folding is probably better.
