@EL_HEFAZO ha-ha, I remember that a couple of days ago we played 30+ HUs against each other and I pushed any pair or good connectors with 50bb against 50bb just to take a flip and not to waste time. Once I had 9 tables and 4 of them was HU games with you. I was mad one time when I hit the flop with mine Ax in preflop all-ins two times, but both of times you sucked me out with a set to your pair on a turn and river. But anyway it made me smile with some thoughts like "ha-ha I hate him, he is running super hot, but next time he will feel my pain".
@triceraatopp thank you! I want to remind, that you, Kyle @Causality, Tim and ibrul are the people who inspired me a lot and I'm %100 sure that without all of you my challenge would be an impossible dream! When I saw that you won Dublin Ladies Event my only thought was "fck it, that girl used to play €5 MTTs recently". Anyway, your sucsess is deserved, because I don't know anyone who was spent so much time to improve poker skills.
@Bing__ thank you, dude. I will try my best, I think I will move to higher SnGs stakes after this challenge, so be ready to battle each other.
@successlaw Thank you! Now I'm playing 9 tables, but I'm thinking about trying to play 12 ones or about moving the stake. Don't know which one is a better, but I think I will try both.
@freddies Thank you! Even for me sometimes it's tilting, but I'm trying not to think about money and not to care about things like slow rolls. I think it's just an experience question. A couple of years ago losing AK <- AQ on the bubble was a supertilting for me, but now I just don't care about such situations. Also I'm playing with 250-500+ BI bankroll. It's a lot of difference between losing 10 euros when you have a €20 roll and €300 roll.
@pinki Thank you! Hope we will meet at SnG tables soon!
@Silver1 Thank you! Keep working on your game and one day we will meet on the higher SnG stakes!
@yarik_gr I like your blog! I'm your fun because I'm thinking about replace cash by S&G ... so you will became my idol for a while ...
You wrote that you playing up to 9 tables at once ... so far so good - but I would like to know how 'long' your session is (time duration in average per day - single or multiple sessions) ?
My 2nd question maybe quite weird ... do you think (did you) about playing HU in coming future ?
Wish you run good at the tables - I saw you already several times on some MTTs (Unibet specials) - you seems to be a solid one. I'll keep my fingers crossed
@MadAdo I never played cash games (unless for some missions or with tickets), because it's hard for me to think when I see real money on the table.
I was starting from 3x 50 games daily sessions, but now it depends from my mood. I'm trying to play as much as I can and I'm going for a break only if I feel tired or tilted. Last couple of weeks my average day is usually 70-100 games (4,5-6 hours) + 50-80 games (2,5-4,5 hours).
I have some thoughts about playing ~1.000 HUs, but only because I think that deep/mid stacks HUs is one of my weakest sides, so I want to do it just for improving of my game. I think that 3-max bubble play is my strongest skill which helps me to make money, so it's impossible to use it in HUs. I think you have to try SnG games, just beacuse they are mostly soft here and I know some people who are playing just for fun and their are playing just without a profit or losing their money very slowly, so I don't think that just trying is a risky move. Who knows, maybe that's just what you were looking for?
Thank you and wish you the best of luck!
@successlaw I had some bad experience with €2 SnGs. I mean, I haven't played a lot of games, I think 300-400, and I don't know what my actual ROI was, but somehow for me it seems that €4 euro games are even softer (I have played about 4.000 games, I think). My theory is that people who think they are too good for €1 games are moving to €2 stake and that's why games are heavier (€4 games actually play a lot of people who just have money). But maybe it was just a bad luck and heavy tables for me at €2 SnGs. And I played it a long time ago, so don't really know about actual picture now.
HUSNG can be a really piss in the face Wanted to improve my HU game as well so have played a bunch of them in the last days. Improvements came fast, learned lots of new things to be used with different stack sizes.
Today I had almost 10 straight losses. Before the session I was really motivated and had done some nice studying and analyses of ranges for different stack sizes. 10 losses is a really small sample, I know, but it can be very mentally draining. Found in a couple of wins so maybe ended just stuck 6 BI’s in the HUSNG. And then the same dome spell (i.e variance) found me at the SNG tables. Really crappy day in terms of profit but I played well so can’t really blame myself that much. #Variance
@yarik_gr I’m open for sharing knowledge. I want to get better in the bubble part and I can share my thoughts around the HU-part and some post flop stuff that I learned from playing Cash Game. PM me if you are interested
