      1/1
      net: +3800
      mins: 433

      feel tired at the end of the session
      decide to call it a day
      very good decision
      good start as a start of a new year
      feel like low board is somewhat still unsolved spots in holdem

      Hi,

      You keep mentioning 40bb is your default stack. But what is your plan? Get off the table when you hit above certain stack (60-70bb) and open a new one with 40bb? Is it 6max, btw?

      HI,davidviktor7
      there is no rule of when I would leave table.
      I have good run, i stay
      Tables has fish, I stay
      I want to fight some deep pots with regs for dignity , I stay

      i don't have a certain plan really .

      hi,davidviktor7
      it doesn not mean i don't put into effort. its just a different way of learning this game. I watch RIO everyday and play a lot of volume to keep my game sharp.

      hi,cantunho
      i would not try to move up becasue i am very comfortable at this moment. and variance would be too high in 25/50

      hi,cantunho
      1.yes
      2. i think every can be like me one day becasue 7 years ago i was just like everyone. but i don't think u can be like me if u put too much emphasis on money. u have to ask urself if u like poker as I do. Without passion,poker is sometimes very frustrating.

      i would like to ask you if you are playing on ourgame.poker because i see a lot of chinese action there. i deposited 250 and i have 545 already just playing nl50 in 3 days :) the games are so soft and the rake is awsome, but now games are dead i guess its late in china.

      your thread is a big motivation for me because you are prove that poker is not dead in 2017 :)

      And you are able to win on high stakes with this style because you play on some super fishy casino like Chinese ones? :)
      What is the highest limit you played profitable on some big poker network?

      hi,GingerKid
      I had 2bb/100 at zoom500 pokerstars.
      at zoom500 my style too easy and vpip/pfr too low
      (18/17 at that time when I got SNE)
      most regs open 65~75% at that time
      nanonoko opened 99% on button
      and I only 40% buttoon
      still managed to win
      I left stars at 2015 but i was still a winner,
      i left because i started to play small site, found it more profitable and fun

      of course I call a lot preflop now ( due to trend)

      i think i can still win at z500 now with +2bb/100 winrate
      but who knows if this is just a over-confident talking

      in fact I lost a lot like 7500usd in 1.4, so i don't have mood to update yesterday
      but strangely i manage to win it all back today in only 1.5hr. poker is sometimes very strange
      when u have a downswing .it's not a good idea taking some day off to relieve.
      Winning is the best medicine to cure the mood of losing . :f_drink: :f_drink:
