      - What do you play?

      Currently I play NL50L normal speed tables.

      - Poker history?

      I'm a micro-stakes player since forever :D (~ 3 years). The biggest part of my hands are at NL10,NL16,NL25 & NL50. From mid 2012 to February 2013 I was a staked player by cbiscuit stables, I played ~ 500k hands for them. This year I started to build my own bankroll but this was pretty difficult since I have to cash out almost all of my winnings so this is the first time I really have a chance to start shooting NL100.


      images


      I think the difference between reports winnings & graph is because HEM1 sees euro & pound winnings as usd.

      - Goals and aspirations for poker?

      SHORT TERM (1-2 months): - get the most of this bootcamp, start mixing some NL100 tables & make some $ to get a database review & a few hours of coaching.

      MID TERM (next 12 months): - establish myself as a very good regular at NL100, move to NL200 / maybe switch to zoom & grind 300k VPP.

      LONG TERM (12-36 months): - Grind mid stakes & get SNE.


      - What do you sturggle with?

      After I played so may hands at micro stakes I feel like I'm too value oriented and I don't 3 bet enough/ don't defend 3 bets enough, don't defends blinds optimally & give up too much against the better regulars. Also there are enough spots to steal pots post-flop that I'm not aware of. After taking a look at my winrates by position I know I suck playing from the CO.

      - What do you want to get out of the bootcamp?

      I want to get hints on how to fix the things I struggle with, play better from late position & the blinds, improve a lot in the 3 betting department both as the aggressor & the caller.
      Getting a skype group started with people from this bootcamp who play similar stakes.

      Hi,
      Im also a mico grinder since forever, for the same reasons as you, I cashed out most of my winnings. Now I found a real life job so I wouldnt need to cash out so Im able to move up faster.

      Good luck at fixing your leaks and boosting you knowladge.

      Hey Jachis!

      Thanks for stopping by, I hope you improve as much as possible and run good (not against me :s_biggrin: ).

      This is my 50nl graph:

      In the beginning I played 4 tables, now I play 6-9 and the redline dropped a lot. Is this something I should worry about ?



      Saw an older post on 2+2 and someone said that non blind win rates of a solid 6 max grinder look like this:

      I have SB:-19bb/100
      BB:-29bb/100
      EP: 10 bb/100 ------------>16bb/100
      MP: 14 bb/100 -------------->15bb/100
      CO: 26 bb/100 --------------->12bb/100
      BTN: 32 bb/100------------------>34bb/100

      Considering that I run above EV, the actual win rates are a bit lower & I'm sure I need to improve CO play. Can someone give me some filters (HEM1) to find my leaks for CO?

      December is not going as planned :f_cry:



      Played 3/4 days this month, yesterday was poker free. I reviewed almost all my sessions and marked some hands where I feel I didn't play well. Should I post them here or at hand evaluation forum ?

      Here are some hands from this month where I'm not sure I played well:

      1.) he's raising 60% cbet in 3b pots, it's fine to just shove over his raise or call raise & ck/r turn ?

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is BB with Q:club:
      Q:spade:
      2 folds, BTN raises to $1.50, 1 fold, Hero raises to $5, BTN calls $3.50

      Turn: ($101.25) 7:club: (2 players)

      River: ($101.25) 9:diamond: (2 players)

      2.) He's a winning regular, his raise on the flop looks very strong after I bet 4w, I guess he's doing this with slowplayed KK, JJ, 77, AQ, 89 & maybe some 2pair/pair+draw. Folding here is correct or too weak ?

      River: ($43.45) 2:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $30.90, Hero folds

      3.) he's a fish with high aggression % postflop 60% flop, 60% turn, & ck/r often. He's not repping anything on that flop so I decided to make a move on the turn after he's getting his turn barrel. What do you think ?

      Hey motanu89 !

      Welcome to the Bootcamp!

      I'll be on the coaching staff working on mindset, tilt, and a-game related issues. But also to set solid good goals for 2014.

      Is there anything mindset related you feel you need to improve to help you move up quicker?

      If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.


      Cheers!

      Hey motanu89 ,

      I wish you best of luck in achieving your goals. Theyre actually pretty similar to mine.

      Hand 1)I call this flop raise to let him the opportunity to spew.

      2)I think MP will often bet Flop with 2pair+. If he ever gets to the turn with a set he dont have an easy raise cause you can have AQ 89s. I tend to b/f Turn.

      3)I like to checkback Flop and bluffcatch vs aggrofish.



      You mentioned earlier the CO gameplan. I think in the CO its very important to have different opening ranges and sizes to exploit the players behind. If we have 3 nitregs , I minraise smth like 45% . If there are aggressiv 3betters I would open 3bb 20-25% range and so on...

      Greetz!

      Hey Erik

      Mindset related advice needed :D

      I need to improve a lot in this area so I bought The Poker Mindset (red 60%), The Mental Game I (25-30% ) & The Mental Game II (5-10%).

      The problem is that I start a lot of things and after the initial enthusiasm goes away I quit.

      Hi Pumper

      Thanks for your thoughts on the hands above.

      Hands 1 & 2 I like your play.
      Hand 3 .. bluff catch vs aggro fish ?( he can have almost any2 so I don't know what turns & rivers to call or fold. Maybe bluff catch is better here with TPNK/2nd pair

      CO gameplan:

      CO range:
      22+
      A2s+ A9o+
      K9s+ KTo+
      Q9s+ QTo+
      J8s+ JTo
      T8s+
      97s+
      87s
      76s
      65s

      326 combos
      25%

      This is the standard range with 3x open but I deviate a lot from this. For example opening smaller with short stackers/aggro 3bettors behind or drop the smaller suited connectors and add stuff like K8s Q9o, J7s with loose passive in the blinds & open 3.5x strong hands.

      Nice to see that you already have some good books and that you have gotten started already. Do you tend to jump around a lot when it comes to what you should be reading and studying? Since you seem to be starting these books but never finish them.

      And what would you say is you biggest mindset leak right now. Apart from not being able to stick with one thing for a longer period of time, which is quite common but a separate issue in a way.

      Cheers!

      Hi motanu89,

      I'll be helping you out in this Boot Camp with topics like procrastination, motivation, laziness, productivity, focus while playing, putting in more volume/studying, creating habits that stick, etc.

      Could you please tell me:

      1) What is your #1 issue in those areas
      2) What did you try so far to resolve it?
      3) What worked and what didn't?

      Thank you,

      Like you said he can have almost any2 and AT has good Equity vs Range. So if we checkback Flop , I expect him betting Turn+River with a polarized Range of toppair and bluffs.
      On the Qc ,Qd runout I would snap 2bets. If the runout is bad like Turn 4s River 6s we may have to fold River.

      I think the biggest mindset leak right now is setting short term monetary goals because I need to cash-out (example: I need to make x $ until Friday ) which leads to tilt instantly when I make a bad play that I know it's bad. Also poker bad runs that last weeks or months lead to anxiety & depression.

      Hello Schnitzelfisch!

      Those 3 questions are really hard. :f_biggrin:

      1) What is your #1 issue in those areas

      First of all I think is important to say that I have a low energy level almost all the time. I wake up tired and I'm not in the mood to study / review sessions.

      I say to myself : "I'm going out for a coffee / play some Counter-Strike or Warcraft III " and then I will read The Mental Game for example but instead I go in the kitchen to smoke a cigarette or browse some forums / watch some videos on youtube / meet with some people and so on and try to delay the task as much as possible."

      During sessions if I feel bored I start listening to music / talk on the telephone / skype or quit playing earlier than I should.

      I have some generic goals every month like: play a minimum of 50 000 hands & study 20 hours. I usually play somewhere between 100-110 hours / month & don't study more than 5 hours.

      2) What did you try so far to resolve it?

      Be healthier & get more balance in my life:

      - I stopped smoking with Allen Carr's Easy Way but I didn't follow his advice and after 4-5 weeks I was back on 20-30 cigarettes a day.

      - Sleeping schedule from 2 to 10 in the morning, going to the gym & then sweat a friend or study for an hour and then start playing.

      - Going out less often -> drink less

      - Uninstall all the games

      - Drink less soda, eat a little bit healthier

      - Grind without music as much as possible, put my telephone on silent mode & browse the internet less & resist the temptation of logging on skype.

      3) What worked and what didn't?

      I think everything mentioned above had a positive effect.

      I learned something from your analysis, I'm going to bluff catch aggro fish like a pro :s_cool: . Thanks !

Also poker bad runs that last weeks or months lead to anxiety & depression.
      Ok so do you often need to cash out your roll as it is now? Do you have a set BR strategy moving forward?

      I cash-out ~ 800$ / month on average. I don't have a set BR strategy.. I cash-out only when I need money, for example If withdraw 400$, after 5 days another 100$ and after 3 days 300$.

      Could you please tell me:

      1) What is your #1 issue in those areas
      2) What did you try so far to resolve it?
      3) What worked and what didn't?

      Thank you,

      -Primoz
      Hello Schnitzelfisch!

      Those 3 questions are really hard. :f_biggrin:

      1) What is your #1 issue in those areas

      First of all I think is important to say that I have a low energy level almost all the time. I wake up tired and I'm not in the mood to study / review sessions.

      I say to myself : "I'm going out for a coffee / play some Counter-Strike or Warcraft III " and then I will read The Mental Game for example but instead I go in the kitchen to smoke a cigarette or browse some forums / watch some videos on youtube / meet with some people and so on and try to delay the task as much as possible."

      During sessions if I feel bored I start listening to music / talk on the telephone / skype or quit playing earlier than I should.

      I have some generic goals every month like: play a minimum of 50 000 hands & study 20 hours. I usually play somewhere between 100-110 hours / month & don't study more than 5 hours.

      2) What did you try so far to resolve it?

      Be healthier & get more balance in my life:

      - I stopped smoking with Allen Carr's Easy Way but I didn't follow his advice and after 4-5 weeks I was back on 20-30 cigarettes a day.

      - Sleeping schedule from 2 to 10 in the morning, going to the gym & then sweat a friend or study for an hour and then start playing.

      - Going out less often -> drink less

      - Uninstall all the games

      - Drink less soda, eat a little bit healthier

      - Grind without music as much as possible, put my telephone on silent mode & browse the internet less & resist the temptation of logging on skype.

      3) What worked and what didn't?

      I think everything mentioned above had a positive effect.
      Hi again,

      First of all congratulations on taking massive action!

      That's really interesting about your energy levels. I would suggest you track your energy levels for a couple of days (you can just set a reminder every hour or so and write down what you did during the last hour and how energized you feel).

      There are probably some activities that energize you and others that drain your energy. Figure out what these are, then simply focus on doing the energizing activities before you do something important (I would suggest in the mornings) and keep the draining activities for later on.

      Ok so do you often need to cash out your roll as it is now? Do you have a set BR strategy moving forward?

      I cash-out ~ 800$ / month on average. I don't have a set BR strategy.. I cash-out only when I need money, for example If withdraw 400$, after 5 days another 100$ and after 3 days 300$.
      It really helps if you have a strategy if you want to move up which i'm assuming you do.

      Calculate how much you can get by with every month. Maybe you can spend a lot less on certain things so you don't have to cash out. You can set a minimum BR of your stakes to 50 buyins and when you reach something like 60 buyins you take a shot at the higher stakes. If you lose down to 50 buyins you move down again.

      Having good BR management and having a moving up strategy will help a ton if not essential to moving up the stakes. You can do it by feel but imo it's much less effective and fun.

      HAND 1

      UTG plays 38/6

      BTN plays 29/26, super aggressive pre & post flop with flop raise cbet 63% over 335 hands
      Notes I have on this guy are not relevant for this hand but I feel like I need to post them :f_biggrin: : 3b squeeze oop 86s vs utg & co, bets 2/3 & calls jam T96r
      3b/5b 3x 100bb JJ IP btn vs co

      What to do in this situation against a loose aggressive player ?

      HAND 2

      BB seems to be a decent regular after 1.8k hands 22/17/ 7.7 3b
      I'm not used to HEM2 so correct me if I'm wrong.. FLOP vs CB OOP = check/raise ? .. he has 29% after 17 cases

      Post flop aggression FLOP 43%, TURN 39%, RIVER 27%

      It's fine as played or should I fold the river because of his small sizing ?

      BB bets $14, Hero calls $14

      HAND 3

      There I decided not to 3 bet because btn has a high fold to 3b. He plays 19/14 with a low aggression factor post flop (0.8) and 43 WTSD after a small sample.

      bb is a loose aggressive player after 205 hands. He plays 34/31 with 10.4 3bet (14% from bb) & 20% squeeze

      On the flop I decided to ck/r him because:

      1.) I wanted to build the pot
      2.) This is a bad spot to bluff so I guess he's calling here with any pair & even Ace high

      What do you think about my thought process & sizing.. overbet jam river was a better play ?
