      Managed to move up to NL50 again - hopefully will stay there this time.

      Two nice hands, which scared the hell out of me :)


      Luckily turned my 30$ bonus that Party offered me into 300 in about 1.5h (these players are just shocking [ obviously I wasn't BRM'ing])

      Here's an intresting hand. Villain was 22/18/3. I think he was pretty good (so I assumed he knew what floating was)

      What do you think about my 3bet on turn. I think he could be floating me with 88-TT or something. PF openR is arguable but I wasn't getting many good hands and decided to change my image a little.

      nice graph !

      about that KT hand, I think he never has 88-TT because there is no reason he would minraise those hands
      tbh I don't really like your second barrel at all because if he is floaty he probably won't muck 88-TT or a 87-type hand, he definitely doesn't fold a jack, and 46 gets there. I am definitely giving up after he minraises, but nice soulread i guess (you should stick him a note saying he floats the flop and minraises what appears to be total air).

      Believe me, I've had a massive downswing. Thats why I won't move up to NL100 (even tough I've 25 buyins) before I've watched all SSNL videos @ DeucesCracked.

      for 6max I'd recommend 30+ BI btw - or more, if you play relatively loose

      I think youre right.


      Well. Today I'm down 6 buyins. 5 buyins I to 2-outers on turn or river. AA vs QQ pre twice. AA vs KK once. Flopped top set vs 34s flush.
