    The sound mind part i agree with ... ive only played about 10 hands against you .. so i could not possibly comment on the mediocre bit ..
    There is a big misunderstanding between the concept of talent and skill, talent you have naturally but skill is only developed by hours and hours of beating on your craft... nobody got to where they were without hard work.

    Ah yes, I remember that. On Poker World wasn't it?

    Depends how you define 'mediocre' really, but I'm certainly not great. I would get killed at the nosebleed stakes I would imagine.

    You know what .... i will give ipoker a miss ..

    I know in months ( even years ) gone by .. i tend to jump from one place to another ..and basically just over think everything .

    I was about to have my first session of the year .. and ive just scanned the ipoker tables .. and jeez ..on 43 tables there are FIVE players with a VPIP of over 50% and FOUR others over 40% ..

    And FOUR of those are shorties ...

    Well im not going to waste anymore time thinking about RB etc .. im going to spend the whole month playing juicy tables on Laddies ..

    Its obvious i stand a better chance of earning good monies on juicy tables than earning less on tight tables and being compensated by a better RB deal.

    So here goes ... let the games begin !

    * huffs *

    Happy bloody new year i say .. :P

    Firstly ... The HEM scanner goes awol again .. even though it had been ok yesterday ... importing and HUD is fine ... its just the scanner does not like Ladbrokes at all ...

    I hope they sort it out damn quickly as its really annoying me not being able to use it .

    And the first cooler of the new year ...

    55 UTG, i raise, fishy bugger on my left calls .. flop is QJ5 .... whooohoooo my first set of the year ... just had to be with my favourite 55 ...

    I bet, he raises leaving 20bb left .. i flat, the turn is a 2 .. i put him all in and he calls and has QJ ....say hello to the river J ..

    Let the mutterings begin ...

    Not much volume .. but thats going to increase once im happy playing more 6 max tables.

    Good start to the year anyway .

    These are the euro tables, so the profit is 50% more in $$ terms...and im running over 2 buy ins below EV ...

    Table selection FTW !

    It's good to see that you're finally taking the advice I gave you back in Feb/March last year and cashing in on the Laddies donkfest!!

    The simplest of ABC games should generally net 10bb/100 on these tables. It only starts to get marginally tough at 100NL - as long as the RNG decides not to utterly hate you. I'm planning my return for later today, although I'll be playing at the $$$ tables as, if anything, the standard of play is even worse.

    Plus playing in euros screws around with my HEM data

    Where are the $$ tables ? .. Ladbrokes seems to be totally dominated by euro tables ?

    I basically use HEM when im playing and then import the hands from the hand history file into PT3 every morning ..

    For some reason HEM does not know the difference between $ and euro tables ... but PT3 does.

    As for the style of play ... im playing a rather passive 24/18 style with hardly no 3 betting ... I tend to be playing rather straight forward against the fish .. but slightly more tricky against the better players ..

    Its early days back at 6 max ... but there are a few situations where i will be upping the aggression ..

    There are generally 4, up to 6, $ tables running in the afternoons/evenings. These are Ladbrokes specific tables (as opposed to the euro ones that are combined with Unibet), which means fewer Scandies and therefore worse overall players.

    Having both I find nice as it means you can move up the limits in more bite size increases.

    Also as I play maninly on FTP and so my database is all in $$, it's not accurate in terms of total winnings if I play in euros.

    That's probably just me being a bit OCD tbh

    Change is in the air folks !

    I stopped playing snooker last season because i was just not enjoying it and getting wound up something cronic ..

    It got really bad ... it was like my poker tilt but just on a snooker table ....so at the end of the season, i said no more .....otherwise i would of ended up lamping someone ..

    I took a year off and was then asked to come back ...so i thought id try it again .. but this time, i was not going to put myself under any pressure ..

    Well ... the change is remarkable ... every game ive played this season .. ive been in the zone ..i dont let any missed pots bother me and just keep my focus ..and its been success all the way so far .. think ive won 13 on the spin ..

    Now if can do this in snooker ... whats stopping me in poker ?

    Which part of this dont i understand ?????

    Honest to friggin god ... ive just had to quit a session .. not because i was doing all that badly ... but because i allowed myself to get frustrated again ..

    Once again ..i allowed myself to get annoyed because Mr limp/call with A7 or K6 just allwayse flops top pair against my isolation raise ..

    How do they do it ? .. there is some knack to being able to limp / call raise and allways hit top pair ..

    But all that dribble is besides the point ... My first goal was the one ive quoted above ... do that untill ive won $500 .. and then move up .

    Due to me still getting wound up by this .. ive only played 2136 hands or so ... 3 buy ins below EV but running at 25bb/100 hands .... well above my intial target .... so why am i still getting the hump ?

    Im annoyed with myself again .... damn it !

    I dont even think its the money ... i just get all worked up because i feel i should get more success ...

    So to counter what ive allready said in this post about limp / raise callers are doing my head in because they hit everything ...

    Well ive just done a filter on HEM where i just show hands ive raised preflop when there are one or more limpers ....and guess what ??

    I have about 3k hands in this database which starts just before the new year and ive raised limpers 177 times ... and my earn rate is ...

    ..
    ..
    ..
    ..
    .. 275.37bb/100 hands

    ahh right .. so these limpers are not getting that lucky and im getting wound up over nothing and basically talking through my **** again ..

    Nos da.

    Im currently packing up a small session ... and to say nothing much has happened is a under statement ..

    I started to get the hump .. then i remembered what i said last time .. and im ok now .. after all ... we get many sessions in poker where nothing much happens .

    Im actually at a table full of mad people ... but ive been totally card dead ... maybe something will happen shortly .
