      Jesus, not that hole... What is wrong with you people. I was thinking about his bankroll hole not his ...

      Ok, if getting serious I'm 22 years old from Lithuania. Will be attending last course in University this year and im thinking to get master degree abroad.
      I'm writting here because I think it is great community and I want to develop my English. And I think i won't get any help in my language forums.

      About my poker carreer. I'm playing poker for 3 years now I think. Dont have any supercars or penthouses so still waiting for bigger hit.

      I'm going to play at Unibet. At first I'll be playing NL5 SH. I thought to bring 100 Eur when this happened.




      So I deposited 50 euros only.

      Goals:
      :spade: My main goal is to get money for master degree. Ofcourse not all of them, but some to help my parents.
      :spade: To be a succesful NL100 player
      :spade: Attend Gordons 6-max course.


      I will upload more goals later so feel free to correct my english and guide to become a better poker player

      Cheers

      Hey sentin1ty

      Welcome to the blogging section. Good to see another addition to this great community. Your English seems very good imo. Hope all goes well for you. Should be fine over at Unibet because from my limited exposure microgaming seems quite soft. Anyway all the best with your goals.

      Regards,
      Luke

      Sorry, for not writing here. Its summer and coudnt find free time to play because of leisure time, work and Dota The international 3 :D

      Well, I also thought at the time :D had first two sesions today. Hate anonymous tables. I can't win there at the moment. Maybe PS has some videos where coach are playing vs unknown players on anon tables?
      Here is my graph from today.




      Here is my most unprofitable hands.

      Prima, $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      CO: $10.24 (256 bb)
      BTN: $11.15 (278.8 bb)
      SB: $4 (100 bb)
      BB: $3.96 (99 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $4.88 (122 bb)
      MP: $3.80 (95 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K K
      Hero raises to $0.16, 3 folds, SB raises to $0.58, BB folds, Hero calls $0.42

      Flop: ($1.20) 9 5 6 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.60, Hero raises to $1.20, SB raises to $3.42 and is all-in, Hero calls $2.22

      Turn: ($8.04) Q (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($8.04) J (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results:
      $8.04 pot ($0.10 rake)
      Final Board: 9 5 6 Q J
      SB showed Q Q and won $7.94 ($3.94 net)
      Hero showed K K and lost (-$4.00 net)


      Did not wanted to raise preflop because of thoughts he was bluffing. On flop i gave him TT+. I'm only beatable by AA at the moment and rare sets.
      Please correct me if I'm wrong at this hand.

      Final Board: 4 Q 4 T J
      CO showed 4 A and won $7.92 ($3.97 net)
      Hero showed K K and lost (-$3.95 net)


      In this hand his range would be KQ, AQ. Didn't expected here to see A4.


      Aaand here is my hero call.

      I hoped he had AQ not AJ :( . I know i should fold here. But then ... Needed to reraise on turn

      Will try to search some videos for anon tables and read some articles. Need to improve and not to spare money.

      Hey guys, feeling terible right now. Don't know what it is. Ohh wait it's me. Can't beat NL4 on unibet. Now reached -11BI :D it's a joke. I'll try to restart reading verneer and strategy topics here. Couldn't find any videos where is playing on anon tables.

      Here it is my top range value generated




      And this is my all played cards




      Aaand yes. My most unprofitable hands are AA,KK,AK,AQ.

      I think i'm playing too wide sometimes there. But I've checked most of these hands and i would play the same 90% of them. Poker god is againts me.

      Will try to find motivation to learn more and beat this joker limit.

      :heart: Hey guys! :heart:

      New day new challenges! After terible yesterday I have a pretty good day.

      :spade: I woke up early. Did not need to go work today, because i've finished my summer job. Drank coffe and watched some videos and some articles.


      :spade: Tried to be more tighty player with less floats and so on.

      :spade: So on 1 table I had a big donor. He lost there about 5 to 6 buy ins. I won about 3 :D

      But from that joy i've made a terrible call where i lost a buy in to my self ;(

      Todays graph:






      I thought it would be nice if i could share a real good music from Lithuania.

      Enjoy

      So hello fellow pokerstrategy members. I thought I was not interesting with my micro on unibet because of the zoom/rush poker popularity. So in the end I quit Unibet and went for Pokerstars. Was swinging from nl5 to nl10 and back to nl5.

      Here is my all time graph on pokerstars.



      I'm confindent that I can beat nl5 zoom. I have 9/100 bb's on nl5 in 20k hands.

      :spade: Reblog reasons :spade:

      :diamond: Public shame
      :diamond: Bigger motyvation

      :spade: My goals :spade:

      :diamond: Reach nl25 by the end of the year

      (Will try to add more goals in the next update)

      So today was the worst day of my poker life. Can't win anything. Looks like pokerstars stations are going to ruin me even before I reach 50$ reward. I'm calm but those runner runner hits are really annoying.

      Still I'm not sure about some of the hands I played.

      So this guy is maniac with 16% 3bet over 150 hands and 50% squeeze.

      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      Reraised his flop cbet because of his flop cbet. I was like 80% sure he has something like AQ-AK hand.

      BTN: $13.20 (132 bb)
      SB: $12.14 (121.4 bb)
      BB: $53.10 (531 bb)
      UTG: $5.76 (57.6 bb)
      MP: $13.63 (136.3 bb)
      Hero (CO): $31.97 (319.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 9 T
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.40, BTN folds, SB raises to $1.75, 2 folds, Hero calls $1.35

      Flop: ($4) T 4 7 (2 players)
      SB bets $1.90, Hero raises to $4, SB raises to $10.39 and is all-in, Hero calls $6.39

      Turn: ($24.78) 7 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($24.78) A (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results:
      $24.78 pot ($1.12 rake)
      Final Board: T 4 7 7 A
      SB showed A K and won $23.66 ($11.52 net)
      Hero showed 9 T and lost (-$12.14 net)



      And in this one should I go broke OTT?

      this is a problem with playing maniacs, very often they will force you to play massive pots. in this situation your hand isnt great in a 3b pot. im not sure i'd want to face a 3b otf but im never folding so against a maniac i would flat and shove any safe turn. it should be much tougher for them to call with just overcards when you take away their hope of bluffing you.

      but i dont think your postflop play was bad if you were sure you wanted to play for it all, its just less likely they will abandon their equity this way if they have a fondness for bluff raising the flop.

      i think you played your set well. i would never fold the river given the amount of bluffs and worse hands in his range.

      btw im nothing special when it comes to no limit this is just my opinion.

      dont be annoyed about it though, just be grateful your playing someone so generous!

      1) fold vs mp's 4x open, specially if you saw that crazy guy behind. as played fold to the squeeze (speculative hands don't play too well against maniacs), as played ofc overs are the majority of his range... but he can have better and he should fold most bluffs when you raise, so i think it's better to just close your eyes and call down, even if an overcard comes
      2) either you calldown or just shove T, that sizing is the worst you could do. he seems pretty polarized when he c/r that board so i'd probably just call down to maximize value against bluffs, not much to be afraid of
