Haha yeah. Hoping this time it's gonna stick!

Well up for crossbooking bets in a few months. Really fun to rail too. For those that don't know what it is, or think it's something else. Basically you both play a session at the same level/game. At the end of the session, if player A is up 100, player B is up 50, then player B pays player A 50. If player A is down 30, and player B is up 100, A pays B 130. It's great fun and good for spectators too lol

Sigh. What a difference a day makes! Around the time of my update post, I was winning around 2 buyins after winning 5 the day before. Upswongs ftw. I wouldnt say I played amazing, more coolered every poor soul that chose to sit at my table.

I went to work yesterday absolutely loving life, had a really really enjoyable shift (ikr?) and got home feeling really fresh after a mcdonalds. Played 2 tables and played awful. I dont know why. There were quite alot of terrible marks in the games, and I was trying to get in pots with them, so this was making me spew. Secondly kept 3b/peeling OOP which is horrid in PLO obv because you get just get owned constantly. End of the night Id lost 5 buyins and pretty much polished off what Im up for the program so far. GG good start.

Well, the show must go on, as they say. Booted up a session and am grinding hard today. Fingers crossed, we go back to coolering everyone!

Btw, Im not suggesting Im tilted over a few buyin swings Tongue. Just pointing out how the game can affect your mood so much over such a short time

I know I can be an absolute Tiltus Bramble at times, but that won't stop me from giving advice I can't take. It's not hard to drop a few buyins in one sesh, conversely upswings can feel pretty permanent, and a 10BI swing either way is not infrequent in PLO. I'm sure Dave will talk to you about this in more detail, just don't let it affect your game. Like you say, it's hard to stay sane after 500 bone dry hands and omaha seems impossible when you can't make pairs; but just wait for the wet season and ship multiple buyins. What will separate you from most players at this level is that you don't go broke with air out of frustration. Keep it together you frightening bastard.

Lol @ that post being blown out of proportion. I wasn't that tilted at losing 5 buyins. I know the swings in Omaha are massive and I wasn't really tilted, just a bit frustrated. I was just pointing out how much poker affects your moods, ie going from having a really good night at work to going to bed just wanting it to be tmoro.

Had a few little winning sessions past 2 days. Ended up playing the Mark in a game heads up yesterday which was obv pretty nice life. Winning like 10 buyins over the week which I'm happy with to say iv only played 2k hands or so. Feeling more comfortable with more tables again so will be putting more volume in next week. See how it goes

yeah DW about it dude, PLO can be the most fucking soul destroying game sometimes - you can not put a foot wrong and chunk 10 buyins off, its gonna happen. Just really need to stay focused through it all cos its ridic how fast it spins around !

Going great so far.

here's some inspiration for you  Tongue
