    Day 52

    Poker Goals
    (1) OOP Play vs pfa: Since I started to pay more attention to this stats my game has improved. There is still potential to improve more but that needs time. Im satisfied with my development and are exited for next week.
    (2) paying attention to betsizes: Its not only to pay attention to villains betsizes its also important to pay attention to your own betsize. Now I make play that I would never done before I payed attention to betsizes. And a lot of players have this leak. They bet small with weak hands and big with good hands.

    Mental goals (instant hand analyse): I did it but not so often as I wanted. I have planned to mark every hand > 10BB and check after the session if I mark at least 90 % of all hands. Of course will I check this hands while playing. I ask myself 3 questions: (1) Did I played the hand well? (2) Could I have played the hand better and (3) what does this hand tells me about my villain –> leaks

    Other matters: That was my most successfull day in poker so far. Here is the graph of the day. Thanks to the heads up mastermind course. I would never won so much without them.

    Hand of the day:

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]1095[/ATTACH] Villain was a big calling-station. So I used this knowledge and made some overbets.

    Graph of the week (only Pokerstars):

    GraphJuni2013_zpsefb087bd.jpg

    Summary:

    On monday I just played 200 hands because tilt breaker closed pokerstars (reached the stopp loss). 2nd time in a row that I had a bad monday. I hoped it will not come to a 3rd time stopp loss monday ;). First I was upset but it was ok. Just losing 3 buy-ins is a better feeling but did´t stopp and loss more. And it has not such a big influence on the next day.

    I also started to play everybody on stars. From 90 villains there were just 2 where I left the table (after about 30-50 hands) because they played fine. All the other players left me.

    My goals were not achieved in a way a wanted. So my goals for this week will be the goals for next week. I will also try to play at least 1000 hands a day so that I play at least 20.000 hands a month.

    Day 54

    process while playing:

    (1) Set an alarm for
    a) how long I will play (session length)
    b) when to add a 2nd table (I play about 30 minutes 1 table for warming up)
    c) when to start the video recording (the length of the video is 5 minutes. In my cooling-down after the session I watch the video and check how fast I played, which thougths I had and try to find leaks, mistakes)
    d) memory to the 3 session goals (month, weekly and metal) –> all 30 minutes
    e) memory on my mental guidelines (a summary where a have noted some mental things)

    (2) make notes about villains unusual lines
    (3) injection logic memory (when I lose a big pot I read it and it helps me to calm down and get a clear mind)

    Summary: I can recommend you to download an alarm clock and use it permanently (at least when to stop the session).

    Goals for the week:
    (1) month goal: paying attention to betsizes
    (2) week goal: flop oop vs contibet
    (3) mental: handanlyse (mark pots > 10BB)

    Yeah, I also like it. :rolleyes:

    Poker Goals
    (1) OOP Play vs pfa: I pay more attention than before. One thing that I want to improve is to cR more in the beginning to find out villains tendencys. Lets check the results in the next days. In this session I mostly cR for value and just very little bluffs. Mosty villains were passiv so I mostly cc weak hands.

    (2) paying attention to betsizes: Villains betsizing tells you a lot about there hand strength. So I used this knowledge to take there money. My own betsizing was also fine. I made some low betsizes to induce bluffs and thick valuebets.

    Mental goals (instant hand analyse): I played about 1000 hands and 80 of them were pots > 10BB that I invested. I only marked 50 of them so that there is still potential. Its a good start and I was focused on how I played the hand and if I can find some leaks from villains play. So no time for complaining (and of course tilting).

    Other matters: I had a short trainingssession with Boosti. We talked about loose agressive villains and how to adapt. We will talk more detailed about this topic in our next trainingssession. I stopp working on the turnchapter of the heads up mastermind course because I want to control the knowledge of the flopplay well before I working the turnchapter.

    Hand of the day:

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]1109[/ATTACH] Villain was a bad aggressive lag. I dont like my shove on the flop. Villain raised TP+, some draws and mostly air. So calling his raise is better that he can barrel the turn.

    Day 56

    Poker Goals
    (1) OOP Play vs pfa: That part oy my game was fine. My cR was > 20 % and I got an agressive image. No big mistakes. Well done sir.
    (2) paying attention to betsizes: That was not good today. I neglected this part a little bit so that I ignored some goods spots. For example I got a MR and forget to put villain on a range. Something I have to work on the next session.

    Mental goals (instant hand analyse): In the beginning it was fine. In the last hours of the day I neglected this part so that my feelings get stronger. The result was that I played a fish, just had 20 minutes until the session ends and I was too greedy and started to play faster. Its more important to learn that winning. And I can play the fish on another day.

    Other matters: My concentration was not so good as I wanted. I was a little bit unpatient, didn´t always took enaugh time and handread and ignored good spots. And I missed to quit in the last session on time. Im only human and nobody is perfect. The good thing is that I striked this mistakes and try to improve them in the next session. I just can learn by making mistakes. So Im grateful to make this mistake. Without them I cant improve.

    Hand of the day:

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]1110[/ATTACH] Villain was a bad fish. I tried to make a hand like 3rdP fold on the turn and would have given up on the river. But gincard hits.

    Day 57

    Poker Goals
    (1) OOP Play vs pfa: Nothing to mention. Just played 400 hands and was kicked from tilt breaker when I reached the stopp loss.
    (2) paying attention to betsizes: Could make some good plays. All in all im satisfied and try it improve each day.

    Mental goals (instant hand analyse): Much better than the days before. I marked 24 of 30 Pots (> 10BB) and checked the hands instantly after playing. So no time for tilt. Muah.

    Other matters: I had problem with going to sleep and my night was unsettled. The reason for this was that Gordon announed that he will announce who will be his next student. Im exited for his desicion and just can say: “I want to be your next student sir”. Like already mentioned I was kicked by tilt breaker. So I had enaugh time for thinking. Its not only important to change some things when I play poker or address to poker. So will change some things in private life to play better poker and are better prepared.

    daily routine goals:
    (1) go to bed at 10 p.m.: This will be my goal for the next weeks. Why? When I got enaugh sleep I will have more power, better concentration, more focused and lastly my wife is satisfied ;-). The problem was that when I had an interesting book, movie or something else I went to bed to late so that had an effect on poker.
    (2) avoid distractions: while playing I sometimes surf in the internet. That is not good because Im not focused 100 % on poker. Even after playing I should use the internet only for poker or chess. All other things can wait until the weekend.

    Hand of the day:

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]1112[/ATTACH] Villain was a bad aggressive lag. I had a 3bet stat of about 40 % and villain was irritated. That were the results.

    Day 58

    Poker Goals
    (1) OOP Play vs pfa: Playing weak and 2ndPairs was no problem. But I made some cR for value vs players who fold to often. So I have to improve this.
    (2) paying attention to betsizes: Like this topic. Reading villains is mostly easy. Now its important to pay more attention on my betsizes and to use over- and underbets to exploit villains.

    Mental goals (instant hand analyse): I did it just half of all hands. I was a little bit tired. Improving this goal is very important because it helps to reduce tilt and to find villain leaks so that I can adapt as fast as I can.

    daily routine goals:
    (1) go to bed at 10 p.m.: I was prepared to go to bed and read my historical book (Part 1 of the Arthur Books written by Bernard Cornwell). But I wanted to know if my application was successfull or not. So I wrote a mail to Alexa and got an answer 30 minutes later. Im one or gordons students. Thats it with reading. I had to do answer some questions from gordon and went to bed at 10. 30 pm. I was so excited that I was awake for about 2 hours.
    (2) avoid distractions: That goal is not so easy. I did it often in the last days and tried to avoid this. I improved but I have to do more. The good thing is that I try to eleminate this things and work hard on that.

    Other matters:

    I started with the heads up mastermind on the 21 april and was down almost 2700 $ after 14.000 hands. That was the worst down in my life. I started to think about my game and changed some things, was more structured, overworked my warming up/ cooling down process, read mental books,…. and now Im up. Its my mentality to never give up and fighted to get this graph:

    HUmastermindgraph_zpsc3154309.jpg

    Hand of the day:

    3rd hand in the game and I just can say thank you.
