5/10NL soon - Trust yourself.
  THE RISE, Feb 13 2007

So the last three weeks or so I've made almost 100 buy ins at the Pokerstars 2/4NL short handed games and either tomorrow or the day after I will have more than enough money to play 510. I immagine the fish will still be trash but the regulars will be slightly better so I look forward to the game and hopefully my first session there is a good one.

I normally trust my reads 100%, I put people on a hand (more often than a range) and I play accordinly. Here's one hand today I thought I should have folded I felt there's no hand he can have that I beat which he bets.

I think if he has any pair under J he is more than happy to show it down cheaply, in which case had he checked the river I would have punished him. I felt he had either JJ-TT or AK here given my currecnt history. I know he wouldnt bet TT or AK so I figured the only logical hand for him to have here is JJ ;/ Also he can't have AA-KK here because he would not check the turn with this he would protect his hand, esp on this draw heavy board.

As for the flop play sometimes I jam sometimes I call. Since I had position I like peeling cards off and seeing where thigns go from there - Also by not repoping I disguise the strength of my hand. The last few weeks I have been trusting my reads on an absolute level, a slip-up like this may appear small but if I stop trusting myself and just play the strength of my hands my winrate will decrease substancially.

I also bought a new closet - but apparently you have to assemble it yourself... so it has been sitting in the box for ~5-6 days

Laydown City.
  THE RISE, Feb 10 2007

Today's session was attrocious :/ Worst one I've had in a while. Guys just kept hitting hands and calling big bets as massive underdogs but hitting. NOthing you can do when that happens, I did play very well today because as I was reviewing my HH I was never behind when the money went in, I was either coinflipping or a massiev favorate which is all you can ask for in poker.

Could have easily made 10+ buy ins today, but only finished +3.5 which is okay varience will balance out eventually. I was never stacked as an underdog today , even though people were hitting I always folded after they caught up which saved me a ton of money (actually the only hand I was stacked was KK v AQ on a Qxx flop he caught A on river, that dosnt count )

Today's folds / donkies not getting value : (I had a almost perfect read on this guy, he always checks turn with made hands and pots the river, had he bet less I may have either called / shoved on him. BTW I call here like 95% of the time especially since I induced a bluff this is a very rare fold) - I kinda donked this up, shoulda obv shoved flop but still got him to commit as massive underdog. - Shoulda pitched turn - lol hand of the day

Somewhat dissapoiting day (results wise) I will play another session tomorrow, I will try to play a long one -3k+ hands.

As for my room - It's still a mess. I bought a new closet but it's still inside the box, and it's been like this for a while. I have not made the time to build it yet. I've also been working out on a more consistant basis - and I notice I have a more energy than I used to have. So far I can bench 190lb, I think optimally I wanna get this to ~220-230. My goal is not to become mr.muscle, but more of a lean fit person with good stamina.

The begining
  THE RISE, Feb 07 2007

About two weeks ago I decided to start playing 2/4NL on stars and see where things go from there. I started with a small 8k roll and have managed to run it up to ~36k so far I figure once I get 45k or so I will move to 5/10NL. I have tried palying 3/6 and it went well but the game is insanley aggresive preflop - while this is something I don't mind and can adjust to I rather play 2/4NL because the varience is smaller and the money is almost the same.

So far I've been running decent, interestingly enough everytime I seem to be getting called a lot, there are a ton of stations on 2/4. Almost every time I make a read on someone and shove because they are weak - they call with their weak holding, no one seems to be capable of folding. I've lost a few big pots trying to push people off garbage like pair of 9's or top pair medium kicker.

Today went soso - I'm playing slightly tighter than usual (only ~26/20 compared to my usual 30%+ vpip) because of the reasons stated above but still managed to make ~8 buy ins in about 2k hands so it's a decent day. I may play later on in the evening but not 100% sure yet.

Going out to buy some new futniture for my room so it looks more civilized. At the moment most of my clothes (clean and dirty) are all on the floor and my computer desk is just a big flat peice of wood with two monitors on it

I also don't post many hands because my HH's are stored in Poker-Tracker. But if anyone wants I can start posting some (if there is any interest)
