      Hello everyone !


      The purpose of this blog will be to track my progress for the next 24 months.

      Long story short :D : I used to grind 25 & 50NL ring game tables for a living in the last years, now I switched to zoom after I joined BsB Team on the 1st May 2014, withdrawn a part of my bankroll for living expenses and left 50 buy-ins for 25NL.

      Short term goal : improve as much as I can and play a minimum of 50k hands/month.

      Mid term goal (until the end of 2014) : 5bb/100 at 100NL ZOOM on a decent sample & shoot 200nl.

      Long term goal : establish myself as a good regular at 500nl ZOOM.

      Below you can see the graph since I started this cool deal.

      It's actually quite funny how his hand actually is within 1% (equity-wise) of being an ok call here vs your particular hand :f_biggrin:
      Obviously it's not doing so good vs ur entire range.. :P

      Yesterday I was too lazy to post update :D



      I need to play shorter sessions because this is a pattern: in the last few months I lost ~70% of winnings in the last few hundred hands.

      Here is a silly hand :f_cry: .. I was 100% sure he's betting 6x otf since he has a high flop cb so I got a little bit too creative :

      Today was a good day ! :f_cool:

      I played 6 short session with short breaks in between, still making silly mistakes but overall i'm happy with how i played.

      GOOD/BAD fold vs relatively unknown 22/13 after 20 hands, resteals 1/2 from sb, 0% flop cb 3b pot (hidden from search feature)?

      Short update for today, this is the first session.. not the best start but what can you do ? it's part of the game, the hands below might be considered coolers or I can't find the fold button :f_biggrin:



      BB seems to be a weak reg, CO&SB look fishy after a small sample.. given the texture of the board I expect them to raise flop with big hands & flop FD missed

      I like the lead. Pretty much any SD value w/o Tx is mostly checking back. Can't see him have a lot of air -except for some busted FDs.
      So I think your donk provides the best value.

      Im not sure I like the call though based on how much more it is to call vs what you've invested. I dont see many ppl shoving Txs here when its not the nuts. At best they might minraise.
      Unless you think he is capable of doing this w his busted FDs or some weird air hands?

      Gl w the grind. Expecting more interesting hands :D

      If he's a nit don't see him shoving busted draws, although I've never played nl25 zoom so not sure! Rake is also a consideration when calling to split.

      I hated the lead when I first saw it, now I think I just hate your sizing lol. I'll need to think about it a bit more... When I commented I was thinking 'hero can't have many Tx combos in his range so villain might value bet some sets etc'.

      Can you explain a little bit more please ? my reason for leading was that he doesn't vb thin so I wanted to get value from 2p/sets.
