2019: Oback2

Oback2 Posts: 172SubscriberProfessional
Im starting this to record my thoughts going forward in 2019 and to hold myself accountable for my goals. I may try to think out loud for a couple hands a week or use it to decompress a session as well.

2019 Goals
-600 hours live
-300 hours off the table
-100 hours online

Last year I put in slightly over 700 hrs at mainly parx, but I had slightly more time to play so I’m going to shoot for 600 this year.

Hours as of January 3:
-4 hr
-2 hr

    I don't get to play Friday afternoons/nights very often but wow what a joke and cast of characters that was

    Just ended a 10 hour annoying session against essentially 6 fish/whales and 2 lol bad regs, and the entire drive home I had to remind myself


    (I didn't book a loss but it felt like I did with the punts going around the table)

    The good news is I put in about 14 hours in January already and will likely play my usual Sunday session as well.

    As of January 5th


    a LoL wat? Hand

    We raise MP 20 78ss, Sb, Bb call

    893ccs Pot 60

    Sb donks 30, bb fold, we flat

    Kd Pot: 120

    Sb Leads 60, we raise to 180, sb Flats

    Amidst a normal downswing, I tend to find myself questioning wtf I’m doing with my time and just frustrated with the cast of characters that you have to deal with on a regular basis at a casino. This session was 5hrs with 8 complete recs but ended -160BB

    Only hand of note:

    Ep 25, I flat button 78dd, bb comes along

    AJdd6x. Pot 75

    Ep 40, we call, BB F

    Turn Ax pot 155

    X, we 80, call

    River 5x. Pot 315

    x, We 190, Villian calls

    To avoid being results oriented as it actually saved me money in the short term, but I believe this is a mistake. I should really size up here to polarize myself to AQ+ - I think in retrospect I should size up here to at least $240. I think it’s standard to use this combo as a bluff here, As well as my suited broadways that didn’t 3b pre - especially combos without diamonds.

    In game, I thought I couldn’t really go too large do to Villians significant range advantage, but after thinking more.. I believe it’s a mistake (especially because I can easily have the nuts) and need to bet bigger to maximize the EV with my overall range.

    Making a 10bb mistake on a river sizing does piss me off a lot.

    Kinda annoying that you can only edit a post so many times..

    The more I think about that that hand above the more I get pissed off about the rather large mistake that it is. I should just run a pot to a small overbet there with my betting range. 1 - 1.25 pot

    Hours as of Jan 11

    When it was all said and done.. January was a pretty good month overall. I’d like to work in more online time though.

    -65 live hours
    -27 hours off the table
    -7 hours online

    February was an awesome month of poker in terms of numbers - my highest winning month ever. (9k)

    -128 Hours Live
    -34 Hours Study
    -27 Hours Online

    Posting month to month live results is pretty stupid in so many ways, but I guess I'll continue that trend - maybe towards then end of the year we can make some assumptions.

    For March, I want to continue sun running lol, and I want to get a through a lot of top section pods/other study material I have. It's time to ramp up the study time as:
