    Day 36:

    Goals for the week: My main aspect of learning is to mark big pots (> 20 BB) and analyse them while playing. So I can find some leaks of villains and analyse my game. That also distract from tilt issues. I also try to ask myself after about 30 hands if villain is a good customer. If not –> byb, bye and next villain. Lets get ready to rumble

    Other matters: The pool looks strange. Spideysteve is right :D. The weather was about 30 degrees+ so we could enjoy the pool and the weather.

    Day 37:

    Poker Goals: I worked on my goals for the future and that is my concept. I will work on 1 long-term goal for 1 month. This goal is betsizing (from heros and villains view). I will also add a short-term goal for 1 week. I will try not to play hands with a 2,3 or 4 OOP. I also have 1 mental goal for 1 month. This goal is quitting the game (see tilt free exercise). So beside this goals I played fine (handreading and paying attention to betsizes).

    Mental goals: I took up enaugh time for the hole session, stayed calm and did not tilt. My quitting exercise (stopp the game on time) was also successfull.

    Hand of the day:

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]995[/ATTACH] Villain steal too little but was very aggressive OOP and postflop. The turn seemed to improved villains hand. Maybe 2 pair or a set. I got the odds (+ I. O.) so I called. After checking the river villain mostly have 2 pair or a set. I think 15 $ would be the best bet size. My mistake.

    Day 38:

    Poker Goals:
    I tried to pay attention to my betsize. Im satisfied all in all. But I was not concentrated and disciplined enaugh not to play hands with 2,3 or 4. This excercise shall help me to improve my discipline.

    Mental goals: Quitting exercise was fine until session 4. Unfortunately I started playing 2 LAG´s at the same time and was not lucky. So I started playing faster which is not good. But I could see my patterns during playing but did not stopped playing fast. Finally I started playing slower and took 1 Stack from 1 villain and lost 2 vs the 2nd. 15 minutes before the session stopped I played a very good player. Seems to be NL600 reg. He was very aggressive and I got unlucky. In the end I lost about 3 buy-ins which is not good. I should have stopped after loosing 2 stacks.

    I also bought the tilt breaker. Unfortunately it didn t worked during the sessions. The path to my hand history was not correct. I also did not analyse villain if he is a good customer and as already mentionend I play too fast. 3 bad things in 1 day. Another day will come.

    Hand of the day:

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]997[/ATTACH] Villain was a bad-LAG. His bet size on the flop looks like a bluff/ semi-bluff or a weaker A. AK and AQ will mostly 3bet preflop. AJ will also mostly 3bet preflop. So I thought myself ahead vs his range and 3bet him. I don´t like calling because there is no scarecard (no overcards will come).

    Day 39:

    Graph of the week:

    week6Pokerstars_zps6d225c81.jpg

    Summary: I just could play for 2 days. The good thing is that I played fine for about 80 % of the sessions. But this 20 % cost my winnings. Im happy to bought the tilt breaker. My stoploss are 3 buyIns. I will focus more on villain analyse next week. But my main goals are (1) paying attention to betsizes (2) dont play hands with 2,3 or 4 OOP and (3) quitting. 🙂

    Day 40:

    Before playing I also start with a warm-up. I last about 30-60 minutes.

    My warm-up before playing

    (1) I ask myself how long will I play (e.g. Session 1: 9:30 – 13:30 am)

    (2) What is my month goal (e. g. handreading)

    (3) What is my week goal (e. g. dont play hands with a 2,3 or 4 OOP)

    (4) What is my mental goal for the month (e. g. quitting-exercise)

    (5) hand review (hands I did nt played well and hand from exercise 2+3)

    (6) make at least 10 hands exercise with the equilator

    (7) repeat the handranges (best 50 % hands e. g. AA is 0,5 % best hand or ATo is best 16 %; 70 % – 90 % Calling-Range)

    (8) watching 15-20 minutes 1 part of the heads up mastermind

    (9) i check my mood with some questions (e. g. am I 100 % concentrated, am I tired,….)

    (10) pay attention to my tilt profile and check it (for example what are my thoughts when I got a suck -out)

    (11) I meditate 5 minutes before the session

    (12) visualisation exercise (e. g. how did I react to a specific situation and how is the correct behaviour)

    (13) say mantra to myself

    (14) start playing for about 30 minutes just 1 table to get warm

    So that is my warming-up before playing poker. What is your process?

    Day 41:

    Poker Goals:

    My betsizing were fine. I didn´t played any 2,3 and 4 preflop. I discovered, that I didn´t 100 % on the flop, when I hit something, I often check some hands behind. That is why my CB is about 60-65 %. So I will add this target to the weeks targets. I stopped playing the session after only 300 hands because tilt breaker blocked pokerstars. My stoploss are 3 buy-ins, even if I won for example 200 $ and lost 150 $. I will try this amount and maybe adjust in the future. For now its fine for me (never get sessions with lost > 10 buy-ins:p

    Mental goals:

    Quitting was fine (tilt breaker ended the session for me). I had a lot of suck outs in the session and stayed calm, dont play faster and tried my best. Before the session I mediatated, did an visualisation exercise and told myself 3 mantras.

    Hand of the day:

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]1003[/ATTACH] Villain was a bad lag and no reads so far. Flop is fine so Im prepared to go broke. I could have called to play rope-a-dope. After calling villains range looked like 2ndP and better and draws. On the turn the draw hit and villain shoved. He could do it with worse like KT, QT,…. so I called.

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]1004[/ATTACH]

    I bet the flop for value

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]1005[/ATTACH]

    Post 20 hands where you check behind on the flop and why

    I checked behind because of the board texture

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]1006[/ATTACH]

    I checked behind because villain cR very often

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]1007[/ATTACH]

    Day 42:

    Poker Goals:

    Betsizing was much better than the day before. Some villains are really suspicious guys. I handreading well, dont play any 2,3 or 4 OOP and bet all hits on the flop. All in all a great day.

    Mental goals:

    Mantra, meditation and visualisation were fine. I also quitt on time, until the last session. I played vs a bad-passive villain and he hit a lot. I started playing faster (but just for 20 minutes) and lost not much. After the session I analysed myself and discoverd that I was tired and not 100 % concentrated and a little bit frustrated because I did not hit. To avoid such tilt I add 1 question (how do you feel) with some answer possibilites (are you tired, are you concentrated 100 %, are you frustrated, do you have any other problems). When at least 2 are negative I should instantly make a break. Lets see if it will work.

    Hand of the day:

    That was the 1st hand and villain was unknown. cc the flop is fine but I tried to cR for value. Villains are mostly passive vs cR and almost 3bet just with better hands. After 3betting I would fold. After the 2ndBAR villain mostly has 9x, 8x, 7x and the draw. I could bet again for value vs 9x and 8x. 8x, even 9x could fold, because I could have JT or a hand like 76 and better. So i cc and villain showed that he is a bad-lag.

    Homework – Check – Calling the Flop

    Post 20 hands where you check-call the flop with various hands and why:

    I cc the flop because villains were passive. Vs aggressive villains I would cf or cR the flop.

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]1008[/ATTACH]

    Make a 10 minute video of yourself where you call every raise preflop. Then you focus on check calling on the flop. Feel free to drop down in limits for this exercise

    Danke, werde ich machen. Der Heads-up-Mastermind-Kurs hat mir sehr geholfen. Ich verbessere ständig mein Spiel, und was noch wichtiger ist, ich hinterfrage und analysiere mehr. Danke dafür. Die Ausgaben haben sich auf jedenfall gelohnt 😉

    Day 43:

    Poker Goals: Tooking up enaugh time without playing faster (muahh). Handreading was fine. I didn´t play any 2,3 or 4 (except the homework video – Check – Calling the Flop). I also bet each hit on the flop.

    Mental goals: Quitting was fine and did it always on time. The session started bad but I stayed calm. Mediation, Mantra, visualisation and injection logic helped a lot to avoid tilt. I can also recommend the abc of the feelings. (A) means you have a situation; (B) you evaluate the situation and (C) you got the feelings depending on your evaluation. For poker that means when you got bad bad beat you think that was unfair and got on tilt. But you should no you have to analyse the hand ans ask yourself if you played it correctly? If yes your feelings should be ok and you wont tilt. I will try this in the future more intensively (goal for next week). You just can control how you play and cant control which cards will come.

    Hand of the day:

    Villain was a retard and that was my 3rd 4bet (2xAK before). I like it.

    Villains are so paranoid and get on tilt when the lost a big pot or get too much action.

    Poker Goals:

    Holdem Manager supports me with achieving my week goals. I bet every hit on the flop (CBet-Stat increased) and dont play any 2,3 and 4. At the end of the week I will give you a detailed report about the week and how the goals influenced my stats and my play. Handreading and paying attention to the stats was also fine.

    Mental goals:

    Tooking up time was great until 1 moment when fish told me to leave in 10 minutes. Unfortunately I was too greedy and played faster to get more hands to win more. But that does not work. In the end I lost some money. So dont use the chat (normally it is off). Other things (mantra, visualisation, mediatation and quitting) were finde.

    Hand of the day:

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]1036[/ATTACH] Villain was a passive fish how dont like folding (e. g. called a cR with Kh or cc 3 streets with week hands where missed draws are possible). At that moment had a higher 3bet stat (about 27 %). So I called. The check looked like TT and worse and AK, AQ,… So I bet for value. On the turn I thought which is the best size vs AK or AQ. So I decided to bet 1/2 Pot. With a better made hand (like TT) I would have shoved the river.

    Day 45:

    Poker Goals:
    The week ended well. Tookin up enaugh time. Handreading and paying attention to betzise was also great. I did 100 % cb and don´t play any 2,3 or 4. By betting each hit my contibet stat went up from 60 % to 70 % :D.

    Mental goals:
    The day was fine. No problems (no big suck outs for test my mental condition) with the game. Quitting was fine almost every day in the week and I will continue doing this.

    Hand of the day:
    Villain was unknown. We could 2ndBAR the turn for thin value vs draws and to make floats fold. On the river a lot of draws missed so I called.

    Graph of the month:

    MonatJuni2013_zps29ee9696.jpg

    Summary:
    After my disastrous last week in april (shortly after starting heads up mastermind) where I lost almost 2500 $ and reduced my brankroll to 1800 $ I fighted back to 3000 $. I thought a lot about my game and changed some things. Mymindset (things like quitting, mediation, visualisation, mantra,….) and my poker skills (e. g. 100 % contibet each hit or the discipline exercise dont play any 2,3 or 4) has improved. And last but not least I play at least 40 hours/ week which I never did before. And I want so much more from my person. I want to challenge myself to give the best, no the maximum to improve as fast as I can. I will apply with gordon to become his student (will sent the mail to him in the next few hours). The reason why and what are my goals for the future will be pusblished tomorrow.

    So that is my warming-up before playing poker. What is your process?

    Wow it looks really good, I’m setting atm only a session timer, set up some music, take a bottle water and checking my mood e.g hungry, tried. Additionally I’m doning now 3 equilap exercies.

    10. Do you have created a list with points which results in tilt?

    11/13. Have you read some books about meditation, can you recommend someting?

    12 I don’t understand do you imagine a situation or what are you doing in detail?
