      Hi PS.c community,

      Just a short history:
      1. started at 17 on pokerstars played NL2 FR 24-tabelling on 16" laptop
      2. playing 6max up to NL25 was small winner/be under a stake
      3. "Big" brake
      4. Got into PLO never beat any level all I got from it is monkey tilt and I become ultra tilting degen(never tilted before PLO) lost 3rolls because tilting on plo100/200

      What is degen??

      First u go on tilt than u start pushing any 4 than u just want to see 0 on bank acc and u are not happy or calm until u bust it. After u see 0 on acc u are happy(degens dont smash keyboards mouses laptops). Next day u are like :f_eek: -> :f_confused: -> :f_cry: -> :f_mad:

      Why blog?

      I want to be motivated not for volume not for $$ but to study. I bought gold status today so i can watch some whole series.

      I will update this blog with every article I read and every video I will watch. Dunno yet if I will update thread daily weakly or monthly with results as I DONT have HM2 (If anyone has second code not used I will accept it with open hands) so till than i will use Poker Debugger and because it has no graphs it wont be so interesting :f_biggrin:

      I will also track fitness and sleeping goals here.
      [] go to gym 5times a weak /I am in so bad shape and summer is here :f_cry: I will just lock myself in basement and not come out till next summer. Hope this blog will be alive for some before/after pictures :s_cool:
      [] go to sleep between 0-1AM wake up 8-9AM /atm its more like 3-5AM -> 11AM-2PM;


      VaaaaaaaaaaaaaMoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooOOOOS

      Welcome back! (As we degens say, you can't quit PLO - PLO quits you :f_biggrin: )

      Don't lock yourself, just find places where you can socialise with people who don't have high body shape standards :f_cool: I.e. pretty everywhere; just don't give a damn about females if they frustrate you - your mood depends only on your own attitude to the situation - that's what I've learned in the study of my sexuality over the last several days :f_biggrin:

      Oh wait, or did you mean that it's just too hot outside and the basement is the only cool (literally) place? :f_grin:

      See you at Kyyberi's live coachings! :f_love:

      Vvvvvvvaaaaaammmmmmooooooossssss!!1!

      So I made opening ranges and want some feed back (im am quite rusty) :f_biggrin:
      UTG

      MP

      CO

      BU
      well any 2 vs ultra tight :f_biggrin:
      any 2 suited vs tihgt + Kx Qx J5+ connectors; one gappers
      vs not so tight + fish; a bit more than CO
      Flat + 3b
      red- value 3b
      orange- bluff 3b
      green- flat or 3b


      Dont know yet how to play blinds? 3b its probably the same? how about callig range?

      When I looked at your opening ranges, I was stunned for like 10 seconds before I painfully realised that you're going to play with half as many hole cards :facepalm: :f_frown:

      I'm actually making the opposite switch and going play with twice more hole cards than in the past 5.5 months... at least until the Rio jackpot on iPoker grows back to €40-50K :f_grin:

      Hey man, I like your spirit, keep it up. :s_evil:

      The ranges look solid.

      I would do a few tweaks such as :

      UTG - open AJo for sure, consider removing lowest PPs, consider opening all suited brodways and T9s.

      MP - remove JT-KTo / add A4-A5s

      CO - remove A8o, 98o / add Q9s and QTo (how come u want to open QTo from MP, but not from CO? )


      Just my 2 cents after taking a quick look.

      Good luck and will follow :f_cool:

      OP, I have to admit that I can't relate to your situation fully because I've never been that broke, though I considered myself poor in the university years and have had psychological and physical problems similar to yours. But I'm commiserating with you as hard as I can.

      You seriously have to do something about your pessimism that, as far as I can see, applies not only to poker. Optimism is not something you had to be born with, it can learned like a foreign language, by looking at the same situations at different angles (say, every busted roll gives you a lot of food for thought, a lot of hands to review). Read e.g. Martin Seligman's book 'Learned Optimism'.

      I know that there are students of psychology (particularly psychoanalysis) who have to collect experimental material for course papers and will counsel for free or cheap. There are even attractive girls among them (but beware of getting unrequitedly infatuated, it's too easy to do so during psychotherapy; I prefer male shrinks for that reason). When you earn enough money, you'll be able to receive more professional help, but now freebies are better than nothing, and at least you'll get to talk to people this way.

      I decided to continue this blog here and not opening new one. I have quite a nice example of what I shouldnt do in future. In break months I recovered quite nice on my life roll(working long hours) so I can afford spewing new roll and add up new gif ending :D thats not the plan tho :f_grin:

      This time I dont want to start with poker goals but some life goals. Time off tables and poker definitely reflects on poker results.

      1. I am going back to school next month
      - that is going to be big jump/ challenge for me. I was never good at school always put just enough effort to pass it at the end :D And I wasnt in school for 2 years now so... I hope it will end up well

      2. Going back to gym
      +
      3. 150 crunches, 60 push-ups, 60 squats, 5min of planks, 60 leg raises per day (week1)
      +
      4. MMA big wish for a quite a long time now never kicked my lazy ass to start training
      5. No rice, pastas, potatoes, sodas, sweets(except 100g of 75%+ chocolate) 6days per week
      POKER

      Started again on 15.9 deposited 30BI for NL10 on 888poker. Need 50points to get gold and 19%[EDIT: its 9% :O ; platinum is 18% ;( ] cash back for next month(I think its decent). Next 9 days I am going to 6table; 2speed+6reg tables NL10 only!
      Off tables:
      1. work on ranges
      2. playing from blinds
      3. basic post flop plays/situations
      4. basic math

      I will probably give poker 2-4hours per day and every minute of free time like always :f_p:

      -I am going to do bigger updates every Sunday
      -Need new name for the blog(i dont like to be degen no more)

      15.9-25.9 +90d from NL200(small stakes HM)+140d out from first deposit bonus(160 left to clear in 78 days)
