      Hi Ive been playing poker couple years now. The main thing about my poker life is I always never play within a BR...I guess the degen in me is very strong haha.I mean I would say deposit like $25 , hop on the $25 PLO zoom table ,double up and jump on $50 zoom and so on.I think there is 3 instance where I got to $5k doing so..1 time I cashed out and the other 2 time I tried go one step higher and get rivered brutally both times..

      Well the main thing is Im going to start from scratch this time..Im planning to do it the right way..at least try.using the PT4 trial version and playing $2 NL Zoom 6 max mainly..will see how it goes.

      Hi everyone,

      So far so good. It took me a while to adjust to $2NL zoom as I was overplaying some hands (and too fancy at times) and called down on river too often. I realised my Fold to Cbet is too low as well (roughly 50%) which i see the regs on this level tend to have a bit higher.

      Well, this is my play so far since restarting:


      Not running that good obv but still showing decent winning as I tend to just go to showdown with good hands :)
      I am not too sure having a big negative red line is good or bad? Maybe someone can help me out with analysing this graph a liitle will be greatly appreciated :D

      Aik

      SO......OBVIOUISLY I WENT BROKE AGAIN AHAHAHHAHAH

      Long story short..My degenness caught up with me..AIya cant stay away from PLO500 lolz. I start to focus on Tournaments and had some good runs from April coming 2nd in Hot 5.50 for 1.6k(Last hand AA <1010 for 80% of chips...o well) , and just this Monday I came 9th in Sunday Storm (out 1st hand in FT...the host didn't even finish introducing himself. Cooler spot really but started FT shortest stack with 12bb anyway so no complaint) for $1.5k and also Qualified for ANZPT Melbourne this coming Oct thru a sattelite on Stars (Had 2-1 chip lead heads up and wanted to make a deal to take 2nd but stars did not allow deals on that tourney :( Had to ship it)..So life is looking good at the moment!

      GF started to show more support ( result orientated b*tch hahahaa) as she can see me not just gambling away.. Gonna grind micro stake tourney and save up for ANZPT Melbourne!!

      Good luck with your new start on the tournaments :gl:
      Hopefully you make more deep runs like last week.

      What kind of bankroll management you will use so you don’t get broke this time?

      Cheers,

      Hi guys,
      Been a while...Ive been making some decent scores on PS ..but old habit don't go away.. mid stakes omaha gambling gets me again..

      Here are the Tourney results so far , from when I start to use PT, roughly 3 months ago.



      Not too bad considering the buy ins are like $5-$15 tourneys mainly...some $22 and $44 occasionally...but alas...my prone to gamble gets the better of me..

      Hi guys have been away for a while but Im ready to get going again!! New year new me right right:f_cool: :f_cool:

      Anyway after negotiating with the gf, I was ALLOWED to put in $250 but in stars but no more deposit for at least half a year. She is the kind of girl that is a keeper and looks after money very carefully(very good bankroll management IRL) so when I first suggested this to her she wasn't too keen as she view poker as gambling (plus I haven't shown big score to keep her happy- super result orientated ). I can understand that though as I actually attended ANZPT Melbourne via a sattelite 3 months ago. Blew off a few thousand over there with side events and cash games (Ahem and mainly table games T.T). Was a good experience, but the that wast the one time that the missus allowed me...so unless I bink it and make it to $10k + probably don't see myself doing this for a while..

      Anyway back to this thread, I really want to stay motivated and focus this time. I propose to do so by having following plan:

      -Wake up , Review session for at least half hour. Make note of good/bad plays made.
      -Play within BR this time , so that means $1-$3 MTT max with the 1 $5.5 shot per day allowed. Will play Sunday storm(sattelite or buy in) every week though as made it into FT last year but out 1st hand as shortest stacked :(
      -Go to Gym at least 3 times per week to get physically more fit as well


      Starting BR :$250


      Peace,

      SO..1st day in and didnt start off too well. Got it in a couple of spots but variance wasn't quite on my side today. It feels different though as now that I am playing within BR and playing multi table (instaed of 1 tabling most of time) , bad beats are easier to get over with :) Hopefully my will stay strong as I knw the bink is not far away as we have done it before!!

      Today's result : -$ 29
      Bank roll : $221

      Going to review and do some studies and also hit the gym!! Gonna keep my chin up and stride through!!


      cheers
