HU thoughts
  Svetoslav, Apr 29 2008

Since i`m learning HU lately with moderate to high success i can`t not think about the game. In my last post i uploaded pt stats of my tilt free period running with 20bb/100. Last night i lost 9bi to a guy. Now this is a situation me and Rhaegar have a fight about for a long time now. His position is the logical - if he puts it in with the worst of it and still win u should never quit if ur not tilting. Yeah luck doesn`t have memory and the math is math. I, as a logical person think that should be a fuckin fact. Yet, i couldn`t not notice that some guys, some days just do NOT lose no matter what. Yeah its against any logical thought but it is true. Here are some hands of my match :

I`m ofc angry but can`t find a logical reason to quit a guy putting it in that light. After him winning a ton of pots with less than 40% we come up to this hand :

Sure, 2-3 of the 9bi i lost was a result of my mistakes ( which i`m not sure are mistakes against this particular player ). Last hand he holds w/ QQ against my AK and i just sit out. Now when i think about it its kinda of a superstitious to quit a guy that bad because he runs good. But i`m goind to do that from now on. Just in case Anyways i`m still running @ 10bb/100 overall after winning 4bi from another guy after my tragical match.


What do u guys think about that dilemma? I also think about shortstackers HU. How short do u play if u even play them. I am currently not playing anyone below 50-60bb but in several CR vids playing shorties is said to be extremely profitable. I`d be happy to hear some thoughts about having stop loss (no matter how poor villain is playing) / playing shortstackers from anybody with HU experience.


Gl, Sve.

Some results
  Svetoslav, Apr 28 2008

Now here`s the pt stats i said i`ll post. Its from the last 7-8 days; i`m not playing many hands per day but i do concentrate fully on the several hundred i play. I know how tight these stats for HU are and i usually play a lot looser. Just had the luck to pick up such terrible uberlooseagro opponents that i didn`t really need to do much most of the time. I am not running godlike, i actually run the same way i ran when i thought i`m runnin like shit Still loosing to 20%- hands here and there and stuff. Yet 100nl HU seems so ez that u can actually destroy it playing low variance, almost risk-free game.




A big boost in the quality of my game comes from listinening to a new bulgarian online radio. J/k ofc I actually plan on withdrawing my 7-8bi rakeback soon ( 800$ = 1040 bulgarian leva = 2.5x average salary here ) so i can feel calm about my expenses and play my best. Because of my long term discipline problems i`m in doubt if i should move up when i reach 25-30bi, or when i play say 20-30k hands tilt-free. I`m for sure waiting for some better weather to move up cus this dark-ass rainy shit i see through my windows seems to affect my mood. I started going to bed late again too, and this does no good so i`ll try to be fallen asleep before 2am from now on.

On the other hand my university excams are coming soon. I guess i`ll have a few days off poker but nothing more. I seem to be naturally-gifted law learner Btw since i`ve seen pics of most of u lpers in other topics and mine is nowhere i decided to post several of myself. I mean i`m not the most active poster but i am browsing lp for more than a year now and gotta say i`ve learned a lot here. I remember the first good advice i got, Baal told me how poorly i`ve played a 10nl hand w/ KK and was nice enough to PM me back the right way to play it. My point is i`m trying to introduce myself to the lp community now . Anyways, this is my favourite pic of me altho noone else seems to like it lol :



Gl all, Sve.

Update at last
  Svetoslav, Apr 25 2008

Its been a while since i last posted. I`m actually not sure if my blog was of any use to me or to anybody else so that`s the main reason for long-time-no-update. It also hasn`t been much of a blog so far so that can be the reason. Trying to make it real now.

To summarize what happened to me - first thing i started running & playing well @ 200nl HU and was destroying the games / withdrawing most of the winnings. I`ve always thought of me not having tilt problems at all but recently realized i`m a tilt monkey. And by that i don`t mean massive spews every hand but generally "importing" several huge leaks in my game when tilted. For example autopiloting / playing hands face up / not stopping when i HAVE to stop playing. These problems got me virtually busto.

I was running under expectations both in poker and in life. Unhealthy eating for 2 years got me to low energy levels, low concentration and increased body fat (before poker i`v always been lean and athletic). I was lazy, depressed and generally paying too much attention to little annoying things in life. I also found that autopiloting 17/14 on 12 tables 6max doesn`t work as well as it used to . I`m glad i finally decided its time for a change. I`ve dropped 11 kg the last two months and got my body and energy to the best level`s they`v ever been. This was a result of me reading a nutrition / fitness book and following the suggestions. Now i feel so fine that its like i`m on drugs all day everyday. Its fuckin unbelievable how much changing from unhealthy to healthy eating can affect u. Whatever i do i`m doing its close to perfect again. I`m also a lot happier no matter if i do smth or do nothing So i strongly recommend everyone reading this to stop eating shit and u`ll be surprised of the results.

As expected this changes hit my game too. I take beats with a smile, quit bad games, not tilt at all. I also discovered what my main problem in poker was. Yes there were a lot ot problmes put the main reason for them was me becoming extremely NOT patient and calm. I had lost my cool. Fixing that seems to have fixed everything. I think over situations and come up with the best decision i`m capable of reaching. Now i`m regrinding my bankroll for a several thousand HU hands already and i can say i feel i control what is happening to me at the table. That`s huge i gotta say. A good thing about HU is that it gave me the joy of the game again.

I`m not gonna post graphs / results in this post. But if i contunie updating this i`m gonna do it soon.
P.M the post is a little chaotic but there is progress - i got paragraphs this time

Take care.
