      Hey Matteo,

      Good luck with the blog and challenge!

      You're not the first one to start such a blog, and looking at how others did it might give you some ideas for your blog, so that's definitely a good idea.

      Again, best of luck :)

      Kind regards,
      Tino

      if I wrote before the session review I would very because I was convinced that he was unlucky but after I changed my mind.
      honestly it was a bit that I do not a good session review, in game I thought was wrong a few spot after the bad beat but in reality I have did many errors in these sessions..
      For the rest I have respected the program..
      Now I'm going to post some hands on which or doubt..

      Many thank Rihard4a for the correction I hope you do it in many because it can be really helpful for me :D :D :D

      Good luck!

      If you are trying to learn English thoroughly, I suggest reading the more 'serious' English newspapers - Times, Telegraph, Independent, Guardian, maybe the Daily Mail.

      he got angry if we take a goal especially easy to match , he prefered win 4 0 that 6 1.
      next week between goal there is this not going to eat at fast food because his week are went 2 fois and is much for me..

      9 take a hand at random and create scenarios and write some here in the blog
      10 anlizzare equity of one hand respect another hand

      Today I I started to analizare equity preflop posterolateral a bit.

      I was surprised that plays equal 89s KQ vs aj

      Equity win draw
      MP2 40.17% 39.95% 0.22% { 98s }
      MP3 59.83% 59.61% 0.22% { AJs, AJo }

      Equity win draw
      MP2 40.54% 40.31% 0.24% { KQs, KQo }
      MP3 59.46% 59.22% 0.24% { AJs, AJo }


      A8svs88 34% vs 66%
      86svs79o 41% vs 59%
      99vsQTs 52% vs 48%
      A4svskJo 60% vs 40%
      KTovsQJs 56% vs 44%

      I'm going to better understand which hands are formed from the range of call 3bet 3bet 4bet in cash 6max with help of eqilab and HM2 so as to be able to exploited better my opponents.

      I had two bads days because I had a problems with my friends and this had a negative effect on my game...I just saw a video of strategy it where c is a Mental Coach where are importance of breathing before a session to isolate and leave out the problems and environment where you play...
      I'll try this breathing technique and will play at night when others are sleeping so as to have a clearer mind and a better concentration...

      Hey Matteo,

      I know exactly how you feel. I share a house with 3 other guys, so sometimes it's impossible to concentrate because of what is happening around me.

      Poker can be hard enough without the distractions.
