      Hi, I have tried to write a blog before, but after one week I failed, this time it will be different.

      My name is Mantas, I'm from small country Lithuania. I'm one of those grinders who is moving up and down through stakes and never played higher than N50.

      So I've decided to write a blog to give myself extra motivation and most importantly prove myself that I can become a better player and person.

      I'm starting at NL16z.

      The challenge:
      • Play 40k hands
      • Have 5evbb/100 winrate
      • Complete challenge until November
      • Playing mostly 3 tables, sometimes 2.



      Other goals for the week:
      • Gym 3 time
      • Eating healthy 6 days and have one cheat day
      • Read a book (non poker related) everyday for 30min
      • Read a Bryan Tracy's book The Power of Self-Confidence 3 times a week for 30min and apply it's concepts
      • Watch 2 poker videos
      • Review every session
      • Attend seminars at my university



      I will be updating after every week, will post weakly graph some hands and my thoughts about the week.

      I have question for zoom and regular tables grinders, what win rate are you achieving in Nl16 or NL25? Do reg table and zoom winrates have a huge difference?

      Have a great week and GL with your goals

      P.S. Sorry if a made grammar mistakes, English is not my native language.

      Hi, I have already completed week 1, because I started this challenge from October 3, next update will be on Monday.

      Week 1 update

      It's been very productive week and I will start with the weekly graph and quick recap of my weekly goals.




      Winnings: $260,75
      Rakeback: $20,78
      Earnings from Card Match promotion: $21
      Total: $302,53


      The challenge:
      • Play 40k hands 10018/40000
      • Have 5 ev bb/100 winrate 11.1 EV bb/100
      • Complete challenge until November 25% completed
      • Playing A game mostly 3 tables, sometimes 2. Half of volume was played on 3 tables and another half on 2



      Other goals for the week:
      • Gym 3 time 3/3
      • Eating healthy 6 days and have one cheat day I was pretty happy with nutrition, but there some things to improve, I still eat to much food that I shouldn't.
      • Read a book (non poker related) everyday for 30min So this was around 3,5h in total and I have read around 2,5h in total
      • Read a Bryan Tracy's book The Power of Self-Confidence 3 times a week for 30min and apply its concepts This one I've completed 100%
      • Watch 2 poker videos I've watched 2,5 videos
      • Review every session Reviewed every session
      • Attend seminars at my university I had 4 seminars and I attendant only 2, so failed at this one


      Green = God mode
      Orange = Showing some skills
      Red = shitty performance



      I'm happy with my performance, one thing that I realize more and more is that everything matters in poker (in other jobs or areas in your life as well, but this is poker forum, so...), all the things your physical state, your nutrition, sleeping, your schedule making, that will you do first, what will you do second on particular day an so on, working on your game, studying new concepts, improving your mentality and etc., when you perform at highest level on all these areas you will be able to perform at the same level in poker. Short version of this: high performance in one area leads to better performance in another and IMO all areas in life are related.

      I will post some hands later.


      Poker goals for the next week:
      • Play 10k hands
      • Play A game 2 or 3 tables
      • Review every session
      • +5 evbb/100 win rate
      • Watch 2 poker videos and apply its concepts to my game
      • Write about my mental game after every session


      Non poker goals:
      • Gym 3 time
      • Eating healthy 6 days and have one cheat day
      • Read a book (non poker related) everyday for 30min, target is 3h per week
      • Read a Bryan Tracy's book The Power of Self-Confidence 3 times a week for 30min and apply it's concepts
      • Attend seminars at my university



      If you have any questions don't hesitate and ask, even if you are thinking that it's a fool question, there are no fool questions, only being scary to ask is foolish. Can even ask about the hand you have played.


      Have a great week and Gl!

      Some hands from first week:

      1) BB is big fish and UTG is suspected to be a fish. BU reg.

      Vs BB and UTG ranges we have a +EV call, but given that BU is left to act behind and he has all KK,QQ and some AJo it's become very tough spot and now I think that folding is better. Of course If I call I'm hitting quads:f_drink:

      3) BU is reg 21/12 35h.

      WTSD:37
      W$SD:38
      cc BUvsUTG: 36(14)
      308h.

      I block almost all possible flushes w Ac, don't really see him having a set OTR, but he can have it rarely. There are few value hands in his range and he is definitely has 98s in his range besides that he can have some pairs turned into a bluff.

      Hero checks, BTN bets $11.13 all in, Hero calls $11.13



      5) UTG is bad reg, but very tight so far 13/4 after 53h.

      I think calling flop is best option, his pre calling range crushes this board.
      OTT I believe that he would bet bigger with 2 pairs and better, so I shoving seems reasonably.

      W$SD:33
      419h.

      I posted this hand, because I wanted you to show that you need to play very exploitable vs some players and lines.
      CO never raised vs cb before. He is tight and this is a 3b pot on pretty dry board ( regarding 3b and calling vs 3b ranges). Pool tendencies are that you almost never see a bluff raise in this spot and vs this particular opponent is even more rare for him to be bluffing. He has AA,JJ,77 at least 95% of the time and I honestly believe this.

      CO checks, Hero bets $1.51, CO raises to $3.84, Hero ???

      7) Tough spot pre

      SB is unknown fish
      MP is pretty good reg.

      Regarding MP range IMO he never has KK or AA in this spot, it's super bad spot to slowplay AA, because he is even deep with UTG.. His range is AK and QQ 99% of the time. Fish can can be doing this with not nutted hands only.


             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    26.64%  20.23%   6.41% { QQ, AKs, AKo }
      BU     42.65%  40.08%   2.56% { QdQh }
      SB     30.72%  25.25%   5.47% { TT+, AKs, AKo }



      I have around 42.5% here and I need 41%, but given the high rake given we are deep with MP it's fold IMO.

      Week 2 update

      Hi, the 2nd week ended, so here it's a recap of what happened:



      Winnings: $130,04
      Rakeback: $14.32
      CardMatch promotion: $16,5
      Total: $160,86



      Poker goals for the 2nd week:
      • Play 10k hands 7005
      • Will be playing 2 or 3 tables Tried to play 4 tables at one time, played like 100 hands, it's to much action for me to play my best game
      • Review every session Completed
      • +5 evbb/100 win rate 10,3evbb/100
      • Watch 2 poker videos and apply its concepts to my game Completed
      • Write about my mental game after every session Completed



      Non poker goals for 2nd week:
      • Gym 3 time 3/3
      • Eating healthy 6 days and have one cheat day Still made mistakes at this one
      • Read a book (non poker related) everyday for 30min, target is 3h per week It's a shame, I dind't read at all
      • Read a Bryan Tracy's book The Power of Self-Confidence 3 times a week for 30min and apply it's concepts 2/3
      • Attend seminars at my university 1/3, it's so hard and especially when you have limited time, because for one seminar I need to waste around 50min on average of my time on the road to university only, so in total it's add to about 2h30min for one seminar



      Green = Crushing
      Brown = Not consistent
      Red = Worse than Trump being a president(?)

      The challenge graph so far:



      This week was not so good in terms of my productivity. I still completed a lot things, which I wanted. Besides there was some other important stuff in my life, which I had to take on. One of them was going to hospital and setting a date for my operation of tonsillectomy. Finally I will get rid off these little parasites.

      This week showed one of my problems, why I didn't have time to complete my goals. I'm talking about my hands and reading goals, on which I really failed. The problem, which I knew in my mind, but could't bring that up, was my sleeping, and thanks to my girlfriend for helping to realize it. The problem was that for probably 4 days I went to sleep to late and in the morning I just turned off my alarm and said to myself I will just lie for a few minutes and the I will get up and I will always sleep for extra 1h-1,5h:D

      But this morning my girlfriend called me, she waked me up ( she noticed that I was sleeping to much I past days and she already knew why I missing with my goals this week) and said that I have to change this, because this is the reason why I'm failing at some of my goals, she talked strictly and she made it so simple for me to notice that I have to do, she triggered something in mind as she triggered long time ago and I am so grateful to my life that I have her, because she taught me so much and changed my thinking in so much better way, I wouldn't be the person I am now, I wouldn't have clear goals in my life, I wouldn't be trying so hard to achieve them, if she wouldn't have opened my mind and inspired me with her attitude to life. The best thing that my inspiration/motivator is the women I love, so I can always talk to her about anything that is on mind.

      I wish to all of you to find that person in your life, which would change you in a better way, inspire and motivate, teach you the small and simple things about life, which you couldn't notice so far.



      Poker goals for the next week:
      • Play 10k hands
      • Will be playing 2 or 3 tables
      • Review every session
      • +5 evbb/100 win rate
      • Watch 2 poker videos and apply its concepts to my game
      • Write about my mental game after every session


      Non poker goals:
      • Follow my sleeping schedule
      • Gym 3 time
      • Eating healthy 6 days and have one cheat day
      • Read a book (non poker related) everyday for 30min, target is 3h per week
      • Read a Bryan Tracy's book The Power of Self-Confidence 3 times a week for 30min and apply it's concepts
      • Attend those seminars at my university, which I think is worth my time.



      Will post some hands later.

      Gl with your goals this week.

      If you have any questions don't hesitate and ask, even if you are thinking that it's a fool question, there are no fool questions, only being scary to ask is foolish.

      I have all JTs and could might in his eyes have some JTo. I assume he never has these hands. As for turn play don't see much value range besides 55, but given that I'm oop and there so many bad rivers I could fold, my plan was to turn hand into a bluff on some runouts, on some clubs , K and 8.

      7) vs fish

      IMO I should bet bigger OTF and OTT.

      I made some calculations and I realise that the river jam on this runout is not so clear jam spot. He has many 7x and I think he is folding some Jx.

      Tough spot

      BU is unknown reg

      I could fold this hand pre vs unknown.

      As played I think and from that I've seen people almost never bluff this spot and that river sizing. So I want to hero fold in this spot.

      What do you think?

It was fantastic, we had a wonderful time, it was very relaxing and we forgot about all the other stuff in our lives. Now we are looking forward for our travel in January, our favorite so far is Dubai, because our priorities are the interesting with a lot of places to see and hot countries, which has sun shining entire day, no snow and higher temperature not like -20°C as in Lithuania at that time :D

      And some spin & goes:



      Results of the month:

      Winnings from tables: $350
      Tourneys: $23
      Rakeback: $80
      Promotions: $73
      Total: $530


      As you can see at around 23k hands mark I had few rough sessions. After these seesions it was not so easy to recover, for a few days I didn't play my A game, made some silly mistakes, but after few thousands hands I was back on track and played my game. I really happy with my progress, I'm improving almost everyday and I feel that my real winrate is higher, maybe if my goal would be 7bb I would have 7bb, because it looks like that I really don't want to deviate from win rate goal at all:D I will not play NL16z anymore, I will do another challenge at NL25z.

      The main things that I noticed at NL16z pool:
      1) Players are too tight in value betting overall, missing a lot of thin value betting spots
      2) Raising ranges post flop are very strong
      3) Rarely making protection bets
      4) Calling too much in the spots, which they shouldn't
      5) Don't play balanced pre flop (3b and 4b ranges)

      I need to increase my volume, so the next challenge will be:

        Play 60k hands in 30 days at NL25z and have +5evbb/100 win rate.


      Now I will take few days off and will not play, but will do a database review to find my leaks and areas to improve.

      So I will start play NL25z probably after one week, because I have operation on November 8th, finally my tonsils will be destroyed, goodbye quinsy.

      As for other things, I will be giving coaching for the first time! Really waiting for this.

      Me and my girlfriend decided to travel to UAE in January, so all the money I earn from rakeback, tourneys and other promotions will be dedicated to this journey, that's why I decided to increase my volume, I'm kidding:D but of course it will be better for this travel as well.

      When I will be recovered after my operation I will post my goals for a week.



      Now for some hands of the challenge:

      Biggest pot won

      BB is big fish and UTG is suspected to be a fish. BU reg.

      Vs BB and UTG ranges we have a +EV call, but given that BU is left to act behind and he has all KK,QQ and some AJo it's become very tough spot and I think that folding is better, so I made a mistake.

      And now he goes for revenge, it's ironic because he has quads as well:D

      I can see this being a fold, because it's double paired board.

      6) vs 16/14 reg, since it was mw pot and he has QQ in his range, I'm not sure about the best line here, probably betting turn 1/2 is okey.
