      Stretching week

      This week i ended up in a break even stats wise.
      My real ROI was better due to a lot of wins in bigger multipliers like x4 and x6.

      Still working on my game and trying to figure out how to play against many fish that only call with Ax and pockets vs my wider openshoves with effective stacks < 10BB...
      Should i keep it wide (nash graph) or tighten up?
      Im in doubt if its the right move....result wise it aint :f_mad:
      I just see that at those stacksizes, my shoves are barely favorite, many coinflips... or im doing the right thing and thats how it goes in spins....

      Will be time to go ask some veterans again about my doubts, or everyone with some thoughts about it can always answer here too in my blog! :f_thumbsup:

      The giraf:

      Like you can read my mind and feel whats going on Sven! :thinking:

      But its true on top of that :truestory:

      I had a swing even worse than the 50BI one on the previous post, on my worst i was running 115BI under EV... and that on the lowest stakes!
      First of all, i wasnt used to play for 0.25$...nor playing a whole week for 10 hours just to win or lose 5$...
      That doesnt mean i didnt take it less seriously though, it was rather a mindset adjustment that was needed.

      So with a lot of following up from my coaches, getting fed the right videos for adjusting my game, things went....positive!
      Every day my winrate cEV went higher and higher, up to 149cEV for the last 50 spins...:coolface: :coolface:

      See on the graph below for this month juin!

      "Still working on my game and trying to figure out how to play against many fish that only call with Ax and pockets vs my wider openshoves with effective stacks < 10BB..."

      If you are pushing nash and fish are calling tighter than nash you profit from their mistake of folding too much. to exploit this you should widen your range not tighten it.

      gl with spins I also play them.

      Exactly! Several weeks passed by since i wrote that and now my gameplan has changed and im not afraid anymore to push the correct ranges.
      Off course i still get called by tight, or even overly tight ranges and lose the spin in the end BUT the long term results are getting better every day.

      Its a journey.

      Balanced week

      This week my balance between playing and studying was equally divided.
      As a result of an evaluation after almost 1000 spins in 6 weeks its clear that i didnt study enough in the start.
      It does make sense though, i had a long poker past on the cash games and a profitable one too, so i had the feeling i could tackle this crazy awesome new game too with my knowledge.

      I was partially right:
      * preflop my game is very solid, but thats the easy part in spins
      * postflop is where the biggest difference is to be found and it has a huge impact on your expected value in chips

      Well i did run 120 buy ins under cEV but even then, my postflop spin gameplan was too 'cash' way to play.

      All those extra hours of study are paying off more and more each week:

      Keeping it steady

      This week was all about remembering what i learned and not to deviate from it.
      I managed to do that, but its a struggle, the moment you drop from A game to BCDE game, thats the moment you start 'forgetting' what you ve learned and do all sorts of crazy or stupid sh**.

      I had 1 day where that happened after getting the news that one of my co-workers died in a horrible traffic accident. :ayfkm:
      He tried to pass a car, who didnt see him coming and hit him, resulting that my dear friend crashed into a truck... insta death according to the police and traffic experts.
      That news hit me hard and it hit my game hard too, i should have just folded that night.

      Keep it cool up there Niels and RIP! You will never be forgotten...

      Good start, average ending

      Not much time to comment.
      Started my week great with high cEV but ended up on thursday and friday by getting called by better on many of my shoves resulting in a very low average all in equity for those 2 days. (49%!!!!!)

      Here is the graph:

      Its been a while

      After some absence on my blog im back.
      I never stopped playing but i got a big punch in the face which made me silent for a long time.

      Anyways, on the poker tables my journey continued on the 0.25 Spins, and i grinded towards a 100BI roll for 1$ spins.
      Pretty hell of a run but i made it, and now running in the 1$ games.

      See the results below, typical story of my spin & go life, running in worst 5% of scenarios with a 74 cEV according to calculators.
      But most important is the cEV, which is decent enough, luckily.
