      I am going to start this thread because I feel it will help my poker game out. I have blown many accounts because I play poker with my emotions and not the skills I have learned. By me posting my result I believe I will play a more disciplines poker game. I see it as accountability in a sense.

      I currently in school so I will only be able to play about 2000-3000 hands a day(ZOOM) My goal is to be a winning player over 100 000 hands at at NL2. When I succeed I will move up to NL5. My current strategies I am using is from a book I read called "Crushing the Micros".

      Hi noname81,

      Good luck with the challenge and use those skills, it's what you spent all that time learning them for! :s_cool:

      Try not to take it personally when someone gets lucky and we'll see you at nl5 very soon. :)

      Best regards,

      Mal.

      That graph looks nice, not so many hands, but well. As he told you, be patience, when you lose, accept it, dont get tilted, and you ll be playing higher stakes in short time. Nice book you purchased, by the way.

      This last session was a great test of my emotions. I had to stop playing. I felt those emotions creeping in. I posted the type of hand that usually sets me off. Basicly the turn card comes and he donks into me. He could have hit his flush with the turn card but at this point I am getting 5.5/1 odds. I also could catch up with a full house.

      Day 3


      I found my self in many situations were I had a flush but the board paired and my opponent hits his full house. One thing I have eliminated from my game is playing big pots with one pair. This was my down fall. I lost a few big pots but I lost with flush and straits.

      A very wise idea!
      Big pots require big hands,

      Looking at your graph you can spot the places your flush loses -- the green goes down and the yellow goes up.

      Those suck!

      Overall its looking good though -- keep it up!

      All the best,

      I have not been able to play last couple of days. I am having computer problems. I may have to restart my graph if I cant get my Poker Tracker 4 database off my old computer.

      Hi, Noname81...
      If you need help with moving the database, drop a post in the PokerTracker forum

      There is a PokerTracker staff member who monitors it.

      Best of luck,

      I ended up creating a new data base. I didn't have much hand history in the old database anyways. I was able to play a few hands over the last couple days.

      I had a great start to day but fell apart. I turned into a huge fish and gave back a portion of what I won. On top of that variance was working against me near the end of my session. The green line and yellow line are getting closer together.

      I played 20 000 hands at NL2 and decided I would give NL5 a shot. I am using the exact same strategy I was using in NL2. I will have no problems if I put my huge ego aside and play with the skills I know. For me POKER+EGO=LOOSER.
      Sometime I feel I don't put up enough fight but I am winning so I guess it doesn't matter. According to pokertracker leak finder all my numbers are in the correct ranges.

      This is the start of a new NL5 ZOOM Graph. I got my old computer back and did not move Previous Data Base. So fair it is going good in NL5. I have had a lot more swings in NL5 compare to NL2

      Oh that is a shame, it seemed to be going so well to.

      Well I hope there is nothing too untoward stopping you and it's just a time management decision, that way (hopefully) we get to see you back in the groove soon? :heart:

      Best regards,
