      thx, i got overall 100 euros from stars freeroll and then from that chrome fpp tournament; there is no way that i could have moved so fast without those. i got a good run with those tournaments at the beginning:f_biggrin:

      i guess this on the river is such a sloppy stupid call, since he leads the turn and (almost) pots the river. So i guess he is almost never bluffing here and representing some strong hands on such a dry board like two pair or a set. I dont think he is capable of turning a busted draw on a bluff on the river. the guy being also a nitty player.

      I stole this from another thread it helped me too;


      On HM2 when you view a hand there is a way to save the hand in PokerStrategy.com standard format.

      To do so, find the hand in a report. Right-click it and choose View

      Now, in the view, you will see several icons on the bottom row.


      This brings up the pick list:


      After that,


      Enjoy,

      thanks man,

      so today i had a pretty bad session , cooler after cooler and so on. but i am satisfied because i did not tilt at all. Which is good, to be honest i also made some sloppy curiosity calls; it hurts to discover youre right but losing money lol

      i will study and probably play some more in the evening

      about the first hand i timed out beacuse i had not press the time button, and i had action on on other tables. I should have at least called with 10% pot odds lol.

      only 4 tabling at the moment while I refine my game :) anything more and I can't read players or recognize how they are playing I'll probably stick to 4 until I reach a roll for 10nl I should have a lot of hands under my belt then and know the tricks :f_thumbsup:

      This morning i had a baby 10nl session 2 tabling. I reached 300 bucks so i decided to switch to 10nl. I played not many hands because i am still not super confident, and in the past i had some down swings at this limit due to absence of a consistent game plan. I had some interesting spots to evaluate; i have to study differential equations today so i might play some more later on. I will continue 2 tabling until i feel confident enough to add the other 2 tables (i play only zoom now).



      §§ finally that red line is going up!! at 5 nl was hard because is full of calling stations so i found more usefull value betting then bluffing.

      some hands

      BTN vs MP too loose line?/good spot to bluff?

      I did not publish anything for sometime since i did not play much, also i did not moved definetly to nl10 since i like to multitable and i was not confident enough to do that on nl10. now i have a decent bankroll that can withstand downswings on nl10 so i will switch to that limit

      the graph so far (is mostly from zoom and regular tables on nl5)




      and a hand i am not sure about

      This week so far on 10nl has been good, yesterday i could not play i will try to catch up today. Running over EV feel nice:D



      I have to work on my af, and overall on my mental game. I feel too much anxiety some time, probably because i have to detached from the results, in the past i used to check the session earnings too much during a session. I am trying now to avoid that, also hiding the balance, and forcing myself just to focus on the game. I feel the mental game is so important since it prevent me to play my :Ad: game with some constance. I will work on that.

      my first 1 outer!! im such a luckbox:D :D
