Not really although I probably should. I downloaded headspace a while ago, I'm going to try and use it for 10mins before my next few sessions.

Day 11 Starting BR $1085.

Terrible session, ran awfully. No cashes from about 21 mtts. Luckily I won a $5 omaha mtt to cover most of the losses. Ending BR $1045

Seconded can really make a big difference

Took a few days off for various reasons, watched a few videos and reviewed a lot of hands I've played. I've been concentrating on playing as good theoretical poker as possible and not worrying about exploitive play, but from looking through the hands I've realise that at these stakes players really call far too much, I get called in a lot of spots where an aggressive move seems definitely plus chip EV, but may not be against a crazy calling range. So I'm going to tone down the aggression alot and try and exploit the fields tendency to overcall.

This hand is a good example, once the flop came up I had planned to bet three streets whether I hit or not, luckily I did but you can see from what he called me with that this line is going to be a pretty bad one against someone who calls way too much. This hand was close to the bubble.

I mentioned this before, but I spotted quite a few hands where I shoved over someones raise where a call would be much better, even when a call should really signify a huge hand. This hand shows exactly why...

I've been a member of upswing for the last month or two and learnt quite a lot, they have a very novel approach to training which I found pretty refreshing. Funnily enough though I learnt the most from watching videos of final tables on stars with no commentary. For the biggest tournaments the play tends to be close to perfect and its very interesting following the action and trying to understand some of the plays that seem at first glance counter intuitive; normally its ICM related.

exploitative all the way dont bother with trying to figure out gto its not like people are taking your range, pos ,tendencies.into account
also tighten up utg i dont think 75ss will be a long term winning open

Regs are taking all of those things into account. I wouldn't always open 75s utg but its good to have some overall board coverage from UTG, and you almost never get played back at. 76s is a bad fold IMO

A couple of people asked about this over the weekend so thought I should add a final update. I moved two hundred dollars over to Stars and immediately binked a ticket into a $82 omaha knockout MTT, I won it for about $3500 putting the online BR up to just over 5k, which seems like a fitting end. My current poker goal is to cash in a HORSE tournament. Thanks for all the posts and comments, I feel like my game improved immeasurably over the few weeks.
