      Until now i have a good understanding of poker, invested a lot of time and energy.

      One year ago i wanted so much to be a winning player that i became depressed. I was studding day and night and playing day and night for 3 months that was all i did. Maybe i was not winning because i had pressure on me to win or get a real job. Now I am barely playing because i have a job.

      The problem now is how to choose between job and poker...
      How much time can i offer to poker?

      I can not make performance if i don't invest time ...
      If i have too many hobbies that i want to do performance in, i will do no good.

      played poker NL2 , 650 hands, 8 tables, winrate -67 bb/100hands



      In this hand i was vs a 21/17 oponent and i c-bet flop smallish and he instant called like his decision was made before. So it was a big chance he does not have an all in hand.

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      SB:
      $2.28
      BB (Hero):
      $2.03
      MP3:
      $2.26
      CO:
      $3.69
      BU:
      $1.34


      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, K.
      MP3 raises to $0.06, CO calls $0.06, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.24, MP3 calls $0.18, CO folds.

      Flop: ($0.55) Q, 5, Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, MP3 calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($0.95) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, MP3 calls $0.60.

      River: ($2.15) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.99, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.15.

      remember my goal is just to play 20k hands, result doesnt matter
      SMART STOP: do you have any idea how to win? If yes then continue playing. If u are sad then take a few days off.
      NL2 only, until i play consistently good over long period of time

      How do i plan to make money in this situation?
      Every time you act ask yourself this question. To answer evaluate both your equities (SD and STEAL equity)
      When the combined equity is worth more than what you have to risk to play on, the situation is profitable.
