      Hey there,

      I’m a Heads Up player, a winning one, the thing is I tried SNG 9 handed, and it was bad, maybe cause I didn’t apply things right, or maybe my game was fishy…

      Anyway, I got to poker strategy and I learned how to play SNG 9handed, and one day I was playing Heads Up , my opponent was a regular at 9 handed 5 and 10$ and I saw his stats and I was surprised, cause I never thought that u can make serious money in 9 handed ! Because I thought “ wow” too much luck needed to get 1st place in many SNGs , and basically you have no edge there…but obv I was wrong... and the funny thing , while I was chatting with him, during our game, he said You know Pokerstratgey.com? and I said I’m a member there :D and then he said go get ICM and watch all bronze videos...

      And I did! And it toke my game to the next level! And then we start to talk via skype and he helped me a lot! Now I know where my edge is! And how big it is! And I used to play ultra tight on bubble, and that’s wrong. I learned to play for 1st place! And don’t be scared to push to get to that level! Cause is better to get 1 time 1st place, and not 3 times 3rd place! And that’s my edge over others. even though I see tons of regulars at 5.50$ 9 handed which is sick!

      But Anyway I didn’t play 9 handed seriously, till this month, and I didn’t play a lot, so I’m doing this blog to get help cause obv I’m still little fishy when it comes to do the most +EV move!

      So I played about 100 games this month, these 9 days! and 1st let me say that my heads up bankroll is 1400$ so I’m taking 200$ to make money at 9 handed and see where that takes me, if I lose 200$ there. I’m just letting it go lol ..i mean how dumb can I be to lose 200$ and still play it ! that’s why I will put more study more asking more watching videos..etc…

      I’m playing the 5.50$ for many reasons, well 1st 3.40$ is just a gd start if u have no bankroll, but I’m ok, I have experience and 2nd of all if I crush this limit I can make money !

      I dont use any software( pt3, holdem manager..) many regulars told me at 5$ no need for those stuff...

      I don’t play a lot of games , just 10 games a day, cause I grind the rest of the day heads up but I will play more cause I wont say anything about my results till I reach 1k games ! and then I see …

      So till now 101 games played .. 1st place: 13
      2nd : 11
      3rd : 15

      So that’s about 20$4bi profit ! that’s my graph from shark scope for those 101 game( i know is nothing but as a start)

      Well, Sunday is always sick, either i get unreal hands or unreal bad beats..like K K vs 5 2 all in pre flop >>> flop 5 river 5 ! sometimes no matter what i do, no matter how good i play, bad days will always be part of my game and i cant avoid them...is just i have to controll my blood pressure....nd thats the hard part lol

      Well i kept playin heads up like a fish, is funny , when i lose i play more..but when i win..i play less.. :f_confused: :f_confused: hmmm, i wonder why!

      So anyway i played 4 sng 9 handed, I won 1 nd lost 3 ..

      and it was so hard,,,i swear 5 regulars were at my 4 tables...and all of them was in my end game..since the 3 games i lost were on buble :s_cry: :s_cry: ... so tough games.. nd i cant watch vidoes here..is not working...this is so gay not to watch vidoes..how wil i improve... ?(

      Anyway:

      Hi there.

      It's been said in many other blogs, no doubt will be in many more, and is now being said in your blog as well.

      Getting your money in with the best hand is the only win you can manage. I suggest having your good feelings at that point. It truly is when they are most appropriate.

      Know this. 25 offsuit has equity against KK. Not much, but as much equity as it has, you are going to see it beat you that often, over time.

      It may be the first time you saw it, and that was one of its wins. Don't feel crushed by this. You will see it again. And you may see it happen several times running, because variance has no feelings, no memories, and can't be influenced.

      If you try to bargain with the Bitch, that is a game in your own head. You can't win.

      Knowing that, and having a bankroll management strategy which assures that you cannot be hurt by this short term variation, means that you can play comfortably, and start to not feel bad because of inevitable reality.

      It will help in all aspects of your life.

      Really well put aciddrop, considered, sensible and more importantly accurate.

      I've read Zen and the Art of Poker. Other people recommend The Poker Mindset, have you tried either aceonetheriver ?

      Your mind can be trained like any other part of you - through hard work and practice.
