      This was the thread of my last summer grind which failed misserably. I was not in the right mindset back then and I put too much pressure on myself to move up and improve faster than I could cope with.

      I've started playing again this spring so this is the thread for my summer of 2015 grind! :)

      I will be posting my winnings, my losses, some hands and maybe a summary of what i study to share with you guys and also for me to keep track of myself.

      Was actually looking through my old posts and saw this one. Reminds me of my Failed summer grind last year, didnt have the motivation to play at all after running bad for a while. However! I've started playing again this spring and I am aiming to play quite a bit this summer so i thought why not post here? Pokerstrategy.com is my roots after all... :)

      So here are my results so far. (bonus is from live poker at casino)


      Today i spent some time analyzing my database and found alot of leaks in my game:
      1. Not 3betting fish enough for value.
      2. Not restealing/defeding blinds enough vs regs.
      3. My cbet stat is pretty low but within normal range, however I cf flops way too much as PFA.

      Now I'm looking for some material to study, I have had some coachings with w34z3l a while back and I liked his approach so I think I will watch his 6max walkthrough videos and his later stuff I will rpobably buy gold status so i can watch that.

      Today I have reviewed a strategy video on hand planning and cbetting (w34z3l) and trying to tweak my cbetting game. Reviewed 25 ish hands and posted 2 in the forums where i think i missplayed it or it was close. So far I've played 2hrs today and will try to play 2 more.

      Will update when grind is done, maybe i should start writing what i study here to remember it and keep it where i know i have access to it!
      Tell me what you think about that! :)

      So i guess i promised you an update so here it its :)




      Have been in contact with a coach and had one session so far. went really well. He told me I play solid overall but that there are some things i can change.
      1. I can cbet more in certain spots: eg. I can cbet OC or backdoors vs a 50-60% F2cb in genereal.
      2. I can potcontroll midstrength hands vs regulars. Up til' now my potcontroll line usually was OTR but if i check back some flops if i know im only going for 2 streets anyways i can get some bluffs OTR or some light calls.
