    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?

    (10) I Jared Tendler book “the mental game of poker” he recommends not to find solutions to solve the tilt, no you have to get to the root of the issue, understand the logicval rason it happens, and find out why that logic is flawed. He used the “mental hand history”, which contains of 5 questions. Let me explain it on the example when you got a bad beat vs a bad player. Here is the process

    1. Describe the Problem: I got on tilt when a fish sucks-out on me in a big pot.
    2. Why does it make logical sense that you would react, think, or feel that way? Hero always expect to win against the fish
    3. Why is that logic flawed? No one is capable of always winning against fish
    4. What is the correct way to handle to situation? Bad beats happe; just dont let them bother you.
    5. Why is the correction correct? Bad beats have to happen in the long run for me to be profitable.

    You can also not how do you feel in that situation (anger, frustration,….), how your body reacts (start to get dizzy,…)

    (11/13) The best book is “Meditation For Dummies” from Stephan Bodian. I read the german version. He write not dry, it makes fun to read the book.

    (12) Before I did the visualisation exercise I have to relax. Meditation is a perfect thing for this. In the visualisation exercise I have closed my eyes and image the sitation. –> I sit in front of the computer got AA and was suck out on the river by a runner-runner. When this happens I try to image how do I feel, how my body reacts, what do I think. And then I try to image what is the correct adaption in such situation and what are the consequences when it happens again.

    Day 47:

    Goals of the month:
    My month goal is villain analysis deeply. I try to observed permanently and more intensively villains stats to find leaks that I can exploit. My mental goal is to evaluate each big hand (invest > 20 bb).

    Why mental? Ok, when we lose a big pot we evaluate the situation. When we lost unfortunately by a suck out we are upset, frustrated, angry,…. The result is often tilt. What can we do to avoid it? We can analyse the hand and find it out if we played the hand good; could played it better and which mistakes we can discover from villains play and how we can exploit this. By doing this we dont let the feelings to control our mind. By analyzing the situation and evaluate positiv we feel much better than just thinking in terms like bad luck, …..

    Goals of the week:
    My week goal is to pay a lot of attention to the flop play when we are OOP and villain cb. The main focus is based on the cb, foldcr, WTSD and AF stat. When villain is very aggressive and we got TP I check the foldcR and WTSD and when the foldcR is high and the WTSD is low I should prefer slowplaying good hands.

    Other matters:
    I will start playing each villain. Even good regs to improve my game. When I cant beat regs on nl50 how can I beat regs on higher limits. So I will start playing them tomorrow.

    I hope it too. I learned a lot while having our trainingssession. Your words make me thought about my game so that I could improve. Thanks for that 😉

    Poker Goals:
    I like to read the soulds of villains. So I checked the stats and adapted. My main concentration was on cc/ cr or cf flops OOp vs pfa. Most villains I got was very passive so mostly cc was fine. Unfortunately tilt breaker kicked me after about 200 hands.

    Mental goals:
    I lost 3 buy-ins but I was so balanced, tooking up may time and keep calm. I checked the hands and was satisfied. No reason for tilting. Villains hit a lot so I could not did anything. But that is ok. Lerning is important. I prefer loosing 150 $ and improving in mental problems compared to a win of 150 $ and no progress.

    Hand of the day:

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]1064[/ATTACH] Villain was a passive fish. His turnraise is never a bluff. But he could raise worse made hands like sets, slowplayed overpairs or overpairs.

    Day 49:

    Thanks to everybody for your good wishes.

    Poker Goals:
    Betsizing were fine. My villain analysis was also good. It improved my game to pay more attention to villains stats. I will also open a thread for discussion this things so that everybody can improve. My main focus (stats) was OOP play vs villain and I did a good job (ok, vs an bad lag I could have cb more weak made hands).

    Mental goals:
    I took up my time, stayed calm and tried to check the hands after big pots. It reduces the probability to get on tilt. Try it and you will see it. Quitting was also fine.

    Hand of the day:

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]1071[/ATTACH] Villain was a bad lag. Get on tilt when lost big pots and paranoid. So my strategy was to cR him very thin for value. On the river a lot of draws missed so I cc.

    I’m a newbie on HU, but I’d expect that river to hit a lot of draws, AJ/AQ/QJ/All Axcc.

    On a side note been browsing through your blog a little bit, seems you are doing the right things, keep it up. Just remember, don’t make the same mistakes I made, never stop studying, study study study study is the way to success if you ask me. Some people are good at studying while playing as well that’s why some people can get away with say 80% play 20% study, I myself am not great at studying while playing, because of tilt auto pilot, and other flaws. So I need to do 60% study 40% play, and slowly move towards 50/50 or later on 40% study 60% play.

    That is right. This draws hit. But a lot of other draws missed (like 76, J9, 97 and flush draws). Its not an easy desicion. But this call helped me to adapt my game vs him.

    Thanks for the compliment. You can get everything if you want it. Im sure you will get the success when you will do everything to get it.;)

    Hello gordon,

    you are looking for (Champion Stand Up One More Time Than the Rest – part 6) new students to become a champion. I want to write a short a application on my blog. I have already sent you the long version via e-mail. Why do I apply again? I want to be your student. Here are the reasons:

    (1) my ambition and will are very strong.

    Example 1:
    When I was on the secondary modern school I wanted to get a diploma and I did everything that I could to get there. And I did with a great graduation of 1.9 in the standard period of study. To finance the study I worked in the semester break in the factory.

    Example 2:
    I always wanted to get my old weight back that I had 13 years ago when I hit my wife. Your heads up mastermind course motivated me so much that I reduces my weight from 81 kilogram to 73 in 3 month (without diet).

    (2) I´m willing to do poker for more than 6 month. I do already play poker for about 40 hours/ week and can imagine to increase this hours. While not playing poker I thing a lot about poker.

    (3) I never give up. I love to fight. I love challenges. As already managed in point 1 I went the long way from the secondary modern school to the degree. Another exampole – I hated chess for about 30 years. But I want to climb the mountain. So I started learning the rules and was able to play well within 1 month. I sit down and studied several hours a day. Now you can find me online in several rooms.

    (4) Im 34 now but Im willing to learn and change my old thoughts for new one. Your heads up mastermind is the best example. My game has completely changed (cR 2ndP and better for value, thinking deeply about villains stats and board textures,…).

    (5) I really want this. Your videos opened my eyes. My poker has completely changed (look at point 4). I also changed some things in my private live (lost 8 kilogram, ask my wife to force me to quit any activity for improving the quit ability, ….). I want to climb the limits. I want to learn. You can criticize as much as you want. Just by criticism I can learn. I want to make mistakes. That is one and only possibility to improve myself.

    Day 50:

    Poker Goals:

    I payed attention to villains betsize and could make some good plays. My OOP vs CB was also fine. Finally I observed villains stats and was satisfied with doing this.

    Mental goals:

    I tried to check every big hand and avoided to get on tilt. Another side effect is, that I got some good reads.

    Hand of the day:

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]1079[/ATTACH] Same bad lag like yesterday (look the hand of the day of day 49). He got more aggressive, get on tilt because he lost some money. That is the result.

    Day 51

    Poker Goals
    (1) OOP Play vs pfa: I played well vs weak hands. I didn´t checked TP and 2ndP hands so far. Let me explain. Lets week I had the goal not to play hands with a 2,3 or 4 OOP vs openraise. After the session I checked this with holdem manager. I selected all hands with a 2,3 or 4. I do the same with the goal of this week. Until today I just checked all made hands OOP vs pfa where I had 3rdP and worse. Today I discovered that I should also check good made hands like 2ndP and better. Im curious what will be the results tonight.

    (2) paying attention to stats I think that is one of my biggest strength in my game. Villain tells so much about there betting sizes. That is easy to exploit. For example villain cR 4 $ in 1.5 $. He mostly has a weak TP or worse.

    Mental goals (instant hand analyse):
    Im not satisfied with this goal. I should check each hand where 10 BB were invested for training. Later I will just concentrade on hands > 20BB Pots. I didn´t checked each hand, maybe every 3 hand. Have to work on this.

    Other matters:
    I think I have too much goals. Having 1 month goal and 2 week goals (mental and poker) is enaugh. I add the villain analyse (a big topic and very extensive). So I my goals for next week are the same like this week because I have some leaks. Yesterday I played a fish (look the last 2 hands of the day) and he wanted to quit because Im too slow (after 1000 hands). So I started playing faster because he is a fish. After 10 minutes I realized, that it is not important to win money its more important to learn. So I started playing slower. Im proud to control this situation. I had not tilt this week

    Hand of the day: [ATTACH=CONFIG]1082[/ATTACH] Villain was a retarded bad lag. His betsizing is such a leak that it told me that he got has a weak hand or worse. So I called him down 3 streets (the river was ugly, but he would bluffed them anyways).
