      Hello everybody !
      My name is Razvan , I am 21 years old , student and I love fitness and poker . I haven t been playing poker for a while , but now I feel like I have the mood for it so I made a deposit of 20$ ok Pokerstars and I hope to make some money during this holiday .
      I am going to play NL2 6max for now because I have played 6max before and I know a few things here and there .
      My goal is to play at least 300 minutes daily . I know it is not that much but for me it is a decent objective. The more I can play the better will be.
      About study I want to read the following book „ The Education of a Modern Poker Player ” and I will probably reviews some hands and post them here to get some feedback from more advanced players .
      This journey began on 19-12-2015 so let s see what I did until now :

      • Game :
      19-12-2015 Session length = 283 minutes
      20-12-2015 Session length = 308 minutes

      • Study :
      19-12-2015 : Pages 1-44
      20-12-2015 : Pages 44-72

      That is all for now , I will keep updating this blog daily .
      Happy holidays !!!

      Graph



      Bankroll + 2.95$

      I am not happy at all about how I played yesterday but the volume . I made a mistake by playing 9 tables at a time from 6 that I was used to and this affected my postflop game and my thinking process . Not gonna do this again . At the of the day I played some zoom and I found it easier to focus only on 2 tables at a time while the volume is still decent in the end so for today I will only play zoom and I hope for the best.

      I just wanted to get the money IN OTF or OTT but when I saw that he keeps on calling I thought that I will simply burn money if I fire a third barrel, what do you think ? HIS went to showdown is 24 but only a 100hands sample..

      MP checks, Hero checks

      Do you see any reason in betting the river too ? I think a bet on the river could only get me value from AK only so I decided to x back .
      His range on the flop contains AK / AA / QQ / 88 / KK / KQ less likely as I have it . I don t expect him to bet that big with a draw hand unless it is a monster draw like JTs . Anyways I raise big OTF because I am ahead of his range most of the times here and I get called ( if he had a set here I expect him to come over the top and reraise coz the board is just so ugly even for his set ) . Now on that turn card I thought that bet/folding is the best play ,I can still get value from AA / AK type of hands with A of diamond and If I get raised folding no problemo. He calls again , if he had a made hand OTT I expect him to shove because he is OOP ,but cant be sure about that tho...

      Preflop I sqz as a bluff , I have A blocker so I think its decent .
      OTF I need 20% equity to call , and I have 22% equity after I give villain a pretty strong range so I called :


      Board: J:heart: 4:club: 5:spade:
      *******Equity*****Win*****Tie
      MP2****22.02%**21.95%***0.07%*{ Ac2c }
      MP3****77.98%**77.91%***0.07%*{ QQ-JJ, 55-44, AJs }


      OTT I guess I should have folded because I need 29%equity and I only have 26.87% but OTF I said to myself that I will call if I catch a club on the turn so I did ...
      Anyways what do you think ? I am pretty sure I messed up this hand but yea.. what can I do now ? :D

      UTG checks, Hero bets $0.58, UTG calls $0.58

      River: ($2.11) Q:heart: (2 players)
      UTG bets $1.10, Hero calls $1.10

      I block most of his FD combos that he can donk with OTR but still I don t see any reason why should I raise but neither I can fold ofc. Thoughts please?


      Thanks in advance !

      I like your play, am very impressed! Keep up the good work! Hand number 4, I would have made a thin value bet indeed since not many hands will call you. Nevertheless, I would bet very thin. However, I believe the book you are reading is arguing about our limited river experience/knowledge plus the amount of choices and factors that comes to it and therefore not always make optimal decisions.

      Looks good. I am not sure for the good fold-part. My thinking says that AK gives enough equity for a 4-bet, especially against someone with a wider opening range than average. A 3Bet stat of 7 is of course good but it shows that he may do it a bit lighter from time to time for stealing purposes. I think I would opt in for initiative and 4Bet. With a call and a K OTF you are drawing at worst (because QQ+ he definitely shoves pre). I don't know much about the equity you then have but I think it gives you a better opportunity to steal the pot IMO.

      Hope this helps, good luck at the tables!
