High Expectations To Keep The Motivation

      I've been playing poker for a long time now. Cashed out a few big times, but at one time or another lost all the bankrolls I ever had. Due to bad BRM of course. I'm a winning player at >4PTBB/100 including all my mistakes and plays when I was drunk (yea, I drink a lot :-)).

      I'll try taking poker more seriously from now on and most importantly keeping it out of drunk plays ;-)

      Day 1. Multi-tabling NL2 6-Max.

      Hands played: 987
      PTBB/100: 21

      VPIP: 21
      PFR: 16

      Pretty tight for me, but I'll try to keep with it if it always works like today. Though I usually like to see more like 35/27, or even 80/70 sometimes (works for about 70PTBB/100 but you definitely experience some huge swings).

      BR: $58.23 (+$8.23)

      Pre-flop: ($0.04, 6 players)
      HERO raises to $0.10, MikeGosi calls $0.09, RismedKyckling calls $0.10, 2 folds, kfish141 calls $0.08

      Turn: T:spade: ($2.74, 2 players)

      River: A:spade: ($2.74, 2 players)

      Final Pot: $2.61
      HERO shows: Q:heart: K:diamond:

      MikeGosi wins $2.61 ( won +$1.49 )

      I'm playing BSS (which sometimes means bull sh. strategy in my case :-)) and I'm buying in for 100BB already.

      Anyway. I'm having a "perfect" day today.

      The only thing I can do at the moment is to keep c-betting to avoid the non-showdown line to become vertically negative. There's nothing I can do about the showdown line however. I get a fair share of good cards, but every single time either the board goes completely wrong or the other players just don't pay me off.

      Currently -$5.60 for the day. Not over yet though :-)

      I guess it's the end of this blog as I'm being ripped off by Mansion.
