      Learning day 1:

      Secrets of the Poker Millionaire Mind – through (many exercises to do, like it )

      Total learning today – 4 hours

      Tilt ( if you do something wrong and you know it ):

      Why i Tilt: When i loose a lot of BI-s, when waiting list bothering me, when something or someone bothering me.
      My Tilt looks like : I talk not so nice words, i hit my chair sometimes, i start calling Fish with wide range to hit and crush Fish, I want to be first who bust him !
      How to solve the problem : I win more than i loose, so calm down! After received 5 tables take waiting list off ! Learn more to be better ! Read from time to time Mindset Books!
      PRACTISE, RINSE and REPEAT
      Stop Whining Bitch !

      Nobody cares
      Everybody hates whining
      Its annoying
      Victim mentality is unhealthy
      OK, occasional Whining is fine

      Goals:

      From today on I stop complaining about anything, i do it 10 days first ! I write down all my Whining’s and i try to do the same when someone else is Whining !
      Each day, wake up, improve one poker skill
      Complete exercises ASAP and start Grind !
      Quit work to commit poker 100%

      Funny that i didn’t here anybody whining today, i try harder tomorrow !
      Tilt Free Today: worked through (Y) (I got many exercises, 5 )

      Started Grind again today. I played 15 minutes, then i “rolled the dice” on paper and i had 9. Atm I’m thinking dice have only 6 numbers :) Next time i will be smarter. Result was -3 BI. Had to do hard folds thanks to variance ! I all so use at the same time Stop loss exercise, its 4 BI-s today. So i had to make brake if dice told me or quit when Stop loss received ! I hope its fine to do so ?

      That’s an optimistic goal to be millionaire at the end of the year.
      If I would make a goal like that I think I would be crazy, because it would be a goal that’s not realistic for me and then I would make more mistakes than normal.

      Good luck with this goal and improving your game :gl:

      That explains a lot. I’m not so familiar with all currencies outside the EU, UK and USA.
      Then I’s a lot easier for you.

      8. Is it not that you have to calculate with 2 aces left?
      Then I calculate A2, A3, A4, A5, A6, A8 and A9 2 aces * 4 = 8 combo's each.
      That is a total of 56 combo's.

      There are 3 7's left. So there are 2 * 3 = 6 combo's of A7.

      So then I should think that we dominate 62 combo's TP.

      9. Villain from question 2 (TT+, JT+,QT+,KT+,AT+) goes to the flop. The flop is As8s9c.
      Does he have more combinations of made hands (and 1P+), or draws (any FD, OESD, GS)?

      He have no 2 pairs !
      He have 3 combos of sets !
      He have 6 combos of FD’s !
      He have 16 combos of OESD’s !
      He have 32 combos of GS’s !

      10. Villain from question 9 goes all-in on the flop with all of his made hands and draws. The flop is $10, and he has $15. Can we profitably call him with TdTc?

      So Villain have 70.83% Equity
      I have 29,17% Equitiy
      He is Jamming 1.5 times pot so we need 37,5 % Equity, so we have to fold !

Waiting weekend then i can make lot of things i have to do here :) Atm i have 2 short therm goals, have to write lines out and learn them, and have to learn preflop ranges and make 10K hands for my self :)
      Ok as you know i have to do things now 😉
