    Day 10:

    Session Goals: I played 2 tables vs 1 opponent (in the end I won 1 and lost 1). I was better in taking my time and my thougts are also better. After the trainingssession with Rovar I discovered that I do not pay enaugh attention to my stats (do I adjust correctly?). So I try to pay more attention to this the next days.

    Tilt exercise: I stopped playing after the SnG´s but was not very disciplined in the daily routine. I will more work on this when I will play cashgame again and try the quitting exercise 2 from the “Tilt Free Today” course.

    Hand of the day:

    This hand was discussed with Goran (Rovan) in the trainigssession. [ATTACH=CONFIG]836[/ATTACH]Villain was very aggressive when he had the initiative. So why raising the flop? I can´t see any reason. The board is very dry. I raise would be better when the board would have more draws. Even than I could be better just to call the flop and to shove the turn because our equity is much better on the turn but on the flop when the money goes all-in.

    So the best line would be to Call 3ST do let Villain bluff in my opinion. Ok, lets assumed we called the flop+turn and the river hits the A and Villain 3BAR. Would you have called or fold? I have never see villain bluff 3 ST as bluff also he is very aggressive postflop. That speaks for a fold. What is my Range? I could have Sets, 2 Pair or Kx and villain 3BAR? That speaks also for a fold. The board was dry and an overcard hits. That speaks for a fold because my range is very strong. Would the board have more draws a call should be better.

    Other matters: In the video on ps.de “Die 7 Todsünden im Smallstakes Poker (just in german)” responded the 3rd capital sin “no plan”. My goal is to take up more time before making a decision. In the video Gordon mentioned hits 3 steps to improve. First what is your goal. Second which attributes to you need to reach it. And third which exercise help me to get this attibute? So I want to beat NL50. I have to take up my time. I knew this. But I forgot step 3. Which exercises help me to improve my leak? When playing chess I try to force myself to take at least 1 minute to find out the tactical goals from my villain and my moves. I will try this the next day. Do you have any ideas which exercises help me to improve this leak?

    Day 11:

    Session Goals: This day I started playing HU Cashgame again. Usually I always join open tables but no I sit down and wait for villain. When I feel better I will join villains again. I also play HU SnG´s while waiting. I discovered when playing 2 tables I play faster than planned. In the end I was satisfied with taking up my time in the first half of the game. In the end I started playing faster. My handreading process is improving. When I got TP and villain 3BAR I try to find out how proable it is that villains bluff. I ask the following questions: 1. Has Villain ever bluffed 3 Streets light as a bluff? 2. What is my most likely handrange and how does it reduce it that villain will bluff and 3. what is the boardtexture and how does it have changed on the Turn/ River. My taking up time exercise was sucessfull. I take at least 1 minute for making moves while playing chess.

    Tilt exercise: I stopped as it was planned and are satisfied.

    Hand of the day:

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]847[/ATTACH] I called the Turn because Villain could bluff (AJ, AT, maybe 65s, 76s). On the river I would definetely fold.

    Day 12:

    Here is the graph from last week. Played not much cashgame (1 worse day as you can see). [ATTACH=CONFIG]850[/ATTACH]. Finally I won some money in the 30 $ HU SnG´s [ATTACH=CONFIG]851[/ATTACH].


    Taking up Time exercise:
    I will experiment with my clock to find out how to take up time for each street. For example 5 seconds preflop before making an action or postflop 10 seconds before making any decision. So I have enaugh time for thinking.

    Day 14:

    Session Goals: I took at least 8 seconds for 1 decision. Was a hard exercise. But it was fine for my play and I will do it for the rest of the week. My 1st goal for the week should be handreading. It was ok but not as I expected. I will make adjustments in the next days. In the weeks before I had too many goals. 2 goals are absolutely ok and more goals are just confusing. I also try to improve 1 poker skill per day. Tomorrow it was not playing hands OOP with a 4,3 or 2.

    Tilt exercise: I add another exercise, called “superstition” to the other one. Before playing I say 3 mantras (goals) in the mirror and try to motivate myself before playing a session. I will also try to go walking for at least 15 minutes a day.

    Hand of the day:

    Villain was unknown (just 5 hands). The hand before I also hit trips OOP and cR villain on the turn. So he seems to be a little bit paranoid.

    Day 15:

    Session Goals: Taking up time was fine. But my HU Game lasted very long. Hanreading was better. I have some interesting hands posted in the pokerstrategy forum.

    Tilt exercise: I like it. I stood in front of the mirror and said 3 mantras in the mirror. It helped something. Before every session I always meditate and make visualisation exercise. I just can recommend that to everyone. It help a lot.


    Hand of the day:

    Villain was a bad-aggressive LAG. Betting the flop for value vs any pair, draws and some floats. Turn 2ndBAR for thin value vs 4x, vs draws and make floats fold. The river is nice. Villain often has 4x (Ax mostly cc) and I shoved. Muahhhhhhhhh

    Homework (Chapter 7: BTN – 4 betting):


    Post 10 hands where you 4bet somebody

    As you can see I did it mostly for value. Some were as bluff because villain had 3bet-stat > 20 % and 2/3 of his range consists of trash.
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]869[/ATTACH]

    Post 10 hands where you get 4bet and how you react

    Most of the hands finished preflop. Just a few hands saw the flop.

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]870[/ATTACH]

    Think about how you would adjust if you are 200BB deep

    I would 3bet more hands like big overpairs and suited Ax hands.

    Day 16:

    Session Goals: I was satisfied with taking time. Shortly before wife returned I wanted to finish my hu sng. So I played faster I made some mistakes. Never try to do that again. Handreading was fine in the first half of the day. Later I was a little bit not concentrated and missed value in some hands. Pay attention to the stats was ok. Until the HU SnG I had very little action. I will not play HU SnG´s in the near future because they take too long and I get to little winnings.

    Tilt exercise: I will start the quitting exercise 1 tomorrow again. Saying 3 mantras in the morning are fine. During my session I stayed calm and played my game. Until the end of the session i was satisfied. As already mentionend I started playing faster and that is not good.

    Hand of the day:

    Villain was unknown. I should have bet all streets. Villain mostly has an underpair and will check it all streets or hit the flop with his broadways. Bady played from myself.

    –> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thherOE0ZAA&feature=youtu.be

    Think a bit about continuation betting (aka “cbetting”) and how you should adapt to different players.

    1. Players with a high CB (> 70 %) should be ore cR as a bluff
    2. Players with a low CB should be cR just for value

    Day 17:

    Session Goals: First day without HU SnG´s. I took up up enaugh time for thinking, handread fine and checked permanently the stats.

    Tilt exercise: I finish on time, used the 3 mantras and dont get on tilt. Like the day 😎

    Other matters: I had my 2nd trainingsession with Goran (Rovar). We always start the session watching with a recorded session (about 20-30 minutes) and check our lines. After that we discuss 1 concept with example hands. The topic of the training were “how to play TP in bet-pot vs pfa”. We checked the states and used basic handreading. In disovered some things and try to use them in the future. The topic for next week will be handreading. I will write an short article about this them and we will discuss this things in the next trainingssession. If someone else is interested you are welcome to join us.

    Hand of the day:

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]883[/ATTACH] Villain was a passiv fish. Easy call on the river (villain could have a lot of missed draws).

    Day 21:

    Goals for june:
    1. Improving in handreading
    2. Taking up enaugh time
    3. Improving in quitting and dont tilt
    4. manage the comeback
    5. leaning, learning, learning

    Session Goals
    Im satisfied with taking up time. Maybe should take up more time when big decisions happen. My handreading is better and I try to use it everyday. Im also better in the daily routine. Play chessgame with exactly at least 1 minute for 1 move and quit after 15 moves.

    Tilt exercise: This week I add the discipline 2 exerice (stoploss). I use the mantras every morning, meditate before I start playing 1 session, make visualisation exercises and use old exercises. I stopped on time and stayed calm while playing.

    Hand of the day:

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]919[/ATTACH] villain seems to be a little bit paranoid so I cR for value vs middle pairs, draws and Ax. Easy turnbet and on the river a hand like 99 would be folding to a third barrel. And villain could have draws that he could bluff. So I like the cc line.

    Day 22:

    Session Goals: In the end of the session I started to play a little bit faster. That was not good. Maybe 1 hand where I should make a herofold. Handreading was fine. Paying attention to the stats was also fine.

    Tilt exercise: I did not stopped on time and played 20 more minutes as planned. Villain was a fish and I got his stack. Should have stopped, but didn´t. Something I have to improve. 1 Hand I was fighting with myself. I shove preflop with JJ vs 3bet (77) and lost. First i was down and talked to myself that it was just luck. Normally I win in 4 of 5 case and when I stay calm and be patient the situation will come and I will take the pot from him. That helped myself a lot. I did this exercise in the visualisation exercise doing every morning.

    Hand of the day:

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]925[/ATTACH] Villain was very passive postflop. After checking the turn villains range is weak and he might hit the A or bluff it. So I cR and got the 3bet. He will never cR worse hand. I never saw villain doing this as a bluff. 1 point for folding. I could have 2x and cR for value. Even if I have a missed draw villain should just call with any value. Another point for folding and I folded.
