all the best with the blog! Quite an eclectic mix of stakes .5/1- 25/50!

Where is most of your volume at?

I'd say mostly between 1/2 and 2/4, with anything above 5/10 quite rare.

just one question from me:

whats your name?

also, gl.

No update since it's been the weekend, played Friday and yesterday, no interesting hands came up on HEM tracked sites, but on ton on non tracked sites did which is annoying. Hopefully the hand grabbers should be fixed soon so I'll be able to post some good hands.

Thought this was a fairly interesting spot. (sorry hand converter not working)

And by interesting I mean I should be flatting the turn here 100%. Think shoving is a pretty huge mistake.

Rest of the hands are pretty boring/standard, I'll post some of em and see if people enjoy reading them.

Edit--not sure how to post HH in here, what converter do people use?

Hey guys,

I'm making this blog so I can track my progress and thoughts, hope it may provide some insight/entertainment to you all. I never do any after session reviews and haven't talked NL strat with anyone for a couple of years, so hopefully I'll keep this updated regularly and it will generate some good discussion. I intend to post straight in here after a session and post the most interesting hands even if I've fucked them up.

I've been playing poker professionally for about 4 years now, all online, with the odd toe dip into live tourneys and some mix games cash. I'm mainly playing HU cash and table starting 6max, both NL and PLO, on pretty much every site there is. I did a fair bit of work at plo the end of last year before getting a coach, paying 2k for coaching and only having one session, due to losing 100BI at 6max and came crawling back to HU. I intend to get back into doing 6max work especially as starting tables never stay HU these days for more than a few hands.

I'll be playing anywhere between .5/1 and 25/50 for NL and 1/2 to 5/10 at plo.

Any questions welcome and I'll be updating later with my session results.

Poker in 2015: Daniel Negreanu- Been around for ages, playing the biggest games/tourneys. Went from being at the top of the game to most probably the fish in most games he played back to on top. Has seen and understood the changes and adjustments to poker and what it takes to be a top player in today's games compared to 20 years ago.
No Limit Holdem: WCG- theres a reason no one in the world is willing to play him. Super smart guy and runs a very successful stable/has coached players to the top of the power rankings.

Pot Limit Omaha: Can't really pick one out. Ben Tollerene (Ben86/Bttech)same as WCG no one will play him HU, Phil Galfond-super smart and articulate, gets his though process across very well, only downside is he hasn't made any money in 5 years, Berri Sweet-results are phenomenal, downside is no one knows who he is.  Odd Oddsen- cos he's Odd Oddsen
PLO8: No idea
Seven Card Stud: Probably some old guy who has been playing for 50 years. Maybe one of the Vegas mixed game regs.
Mixed Games: Matt Ahston or Sauce
Cash Strategy: Cole South- really smart and articulate, knows cash games inside out, been around for ages and has adapted and progressed with the games.
MTT: Fedor or Pads
STT: People still play these? Dan Colman as a guess

Playing the Player: Mike McDonald
I'd add a chapter on exploitative vs GTO, how this has changed the game and why. Obv written by Ike.

If anyone has ever seen a video by Ivey or even heard about him talking about poker they wouldn't want him anywhere near a book.
847  Poker Forums / Poker Hand Analysis / Super stud spot on: March 11, 2015, 07:02:34 PM
Same game as previous thread, I have played super stud once before in a DC mix but shied away from getting involved in any hands as I really don't know what I'm doing and super stud/stud hi/lo is by far my weakest game in the mix.

I open two spades (KT) utg to £7 get 3 callers effective stack sizes £200. Discard the KJ and turn the 4.

Villain 1 turns
V3 3x

I get a
V2 Tx
V3 9

I bet (good?) £22, V1 and 2 call.
I catch a three clubs
V2 K

V1 leads for £50~

Question is do we raise here to protect vs 1 card FD/low from V1 or flat and allow V2 to make mistakes with his obv shitty high only 1/2 pair hands. Or does it not really matter with the PSR. What if we were £350/£500/£1k deep? Really have no clue how to play this game and can't find anything strat wise online so any comments on my play would be appreciated.

Great analysis guys, thank you. Villain has around £150~. I agree with everything you say here and during the hand have definitely over estimated my equity vs a reasonable GII range from villain, and have jammed because I can't ever be doing bad vs anything and to try to save myself making a mistake on various rivers due to inexperience. However like you say there are no difficult decisions on the river and I am definitely losing value by pushing out worse draws from the other 2 players.

Thanks for the advice, really helped me understand the game a bit better, seems like a fun/complex/variancey game. Start/discussion is hard to come by as well.

Any thoughts on the O8 hand?

In Notts
851  Poker Forums / Poker Hand Analysis / Re: Padooki/O8 Dc iso spots on: March 11, 2015, 04:16:06 PM
Re-potting to isolate is okay then. Not quite as good a spot as you might at first think though, because

a) you are gonna be out of position for the two remaining draws vs him - which gives him the edge even though you will be drawing better than him, and
b) he will actually have a padooki a decent amount of the time, which makes you a substantial dog. And finally,
c) one of the initial callers could be slowplaying a padooki.

But then it's gambling innit Smiley

I think I could pretty much rule out c with the way the game/players were playing. Regarding a), does the fact we can stand on/make 2 flushes that will be the best hand a lot of the time if he is drawing negate his positional advantage?

Yeh sorry he drew 2
853  Poker Forums / Poker Hand Analysis / Padooki/O8 Dc iso spots on: March 11, 2015, 01:23:26 PM
Hey guys,

New to a weekly DC game so no reads on any of the players except that they play together regularly, are loose/passive and seemingly not very good, although I am semi new to mix games and doing a lot of work in the run up to the WSOP.
Game is 2/2 stacks ranging from 100-1k, I cover.
First hand is Padooki, first time playing it although I've played badugi a little. It's 8 handed I'm in the blind 5 limpers to me I check and discard all 4 (KKQJ). Get two hearts three clubs pot out (ok?) 2 callers then man with around £130 pots it. Question is is it better to repot here to iso with a nut draw or take it probably 4 way? Other stacks are around £200 and £350. Villain seems a little tilted and is stuck, one of the other just doubled (3/4) me in O8 but is still stuck and the other is very bad/stuck/tilted.

Second hand is 5 crad O8. I check after 4 limpers with Two Diamonds in BB. Flop is three diamonds , checks round. Turn I bet pot, call, call,villain Pots. Villain potting seems tight/old etc picks Badugi every hand so I'm assuming he's weak at O8. Other 2 stack sizes are £300 and £450. Better to flat as our draw is so good or iso vs a probable set/KT wrap/low. I repot thinking I hardly get paid on a lot of my nut rivers, I chop the low quite often if its 4 way and I have a sunstantial equity advantage vs the villains GII range on the turn and other 2 villains don't get to realize their shitty equity for cheap.

Thoughts on both hands welcome.

Thanks for the reply.

Do you think betting the turn is a big mistake given the fact that I didn't know he played a lot of plo/is a very competent plo player at the time? He rarely has us beat? A lot of the 5678, 678x hands that have good equity vs us are likely to 3bet pre/raise flop? He maybe capable of bluffing these kinds of turns? We stack/protect vs 5xxx hands that likely have 9 outs vs us?
855  Poker Forums / Poker Hand Analysis / 5/5 PLO hand on: July 15, 2014, 10:19:55 PM
Hey guys first post here.

The game is 5/5 plo during the sky championships at DTD. Game looks quite soft with the guy from eastenders, Carlo Citrone and some guy who was on my starting table for the tourney who was bad at NL. I have Ludovic Geilich to my direct right, who at the time i recognized from the UKIPT coverage but now know he plays a fair bit of plo. No one knows who I am and I play 90% of my volume online playing HU. Don't play a lot of 6max and hardly any live.
Think this was 5 hands in maybe.
Couple of limpers, btn raises, Ludo calls in the sb and I repot to £100 with  , everyone folds, Ludo calls, both around £1k deep.
 Flop is 
I bet £125, Ludo calls.
Turn is   .
Ludo checks I bet £250, he min raises to £500 leaving around £500 behind.

I feel my flop sizing would lead to a fair amount floats, although I also feel my range looks very AAxx heavy. I'm not sure what to make of his raise, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense, and I'm sure from what I knew of him at the time he is quite aggressive, so would 3bet most AAxx combos and would back 4bet the remainder to my 3bet.
I feel flatting looks super strong and expect him to bluff river never because of this if I did flat. Not sure he if he raises bare 5xxx hands, or if he would raise 99xx to my cbet.
Not sure if flatting, folding to river jam (even with ridic odds), flatting, calling off all rivers, or jamming now is best.
Thoughts welcome.
