New Challenge (old Challenge)

Playing against more donks than usual is going to be high variance poker because you are trying to find big value in such thin spots and have to decide if you want to put it all in with TPTK more often.
You just described my game perfectly as well and at 10NL there are A LOT of donks. Problem right now is they keep showing up with some random berzerko 2pr. I think you could make a ton of $ at 10NL if you made yourself never get it in with less than top 2. I think you'd lose some value but would seem to be low variance.

QFT when I get back from Vegas im gonna start putting a ton more volume in though. That graph is the last week of March and April so far. Ive played close to nothing so far this month...like 8000 hands lol.
WTF??? I did more than that in one day, lol. Granted it was a huge losing day but still.

Reguest all your hands from Stars, rebuild your database. I had to load in like 200k hands when my computer crashed before.
I didnt even think about that. I loaded my brothers database in when I got my computer back. So I have plenty of hands with other players just not my own stats. Thats a good idea though

So tonight is one of those nights where I realize how truly good my life is.I'm getting drunk around a bonfire with a bunch of my good friends, I have no responsibilities to anybody for 4.5 months over break here, and I have more disposable income than anybody I know right now, even with how terrible I've been running in April.These types of nights just put bad runs into perspective and make me realize that no matter how bad I might run, I can still bounce back and I still have things much better than almost anybody in the world and I should be very thankful for that.

Yeah, you want that stuff for sure, lots of info in there besides just your profit/loss, etc.

Hey by the way did your brother ever come out of his rut? Tell him to come here and post an updated graph.
He's having a decent month overall, he did however call me to today to bitch about some retard hitting a 3 outer on the river (JJ<AJ aipf) for a stack and then while im on the phone with him he took a 2 outer another 3 outer and 4 outer. So yeah he's still struggling. Ill tell him to come post a graph though

The opposite for me. After my third -2k day in less than a week, I hate poker :club:

Not sure what this means besides the fact that I ran crazy hot in January. I suspect it points to major leaks but I'm not sure how to find them. Simo you should really teach a class in using Poker EV sometime.
QFTSimo, have you ever written anything in-depth about using PokerEV to find leaks?

One thing about Cali, the weather is always nice :club:.
See the thing about having nice weather all year is you miss out on the best day of the year. Its the day where after a shitty cold dreary miserable way way to long winter...you wake up to the sun shining in your window, and when you go outside everything is all of a sudden this amazingly bright color green, the birds are chirping and the temperature is just perfect. Its that day where you just cant roll down the windows in your car low enough or turn the radio up high enough. I wouldnt trade 364 nice days for it. makes the whole winter worth it. One thing you can count on is us Chicagoans know how to enjoy nice weather.

No offense sir, but posting graphs showing a bad run isn't any different than posting 20 hand histories in a row where some guy donked you. I just think this is a pretty silly paragraph in general. For those of us that play poker as our primary income those times when you are going through things (like Mark now for example) can make you pretty miserable. If it helps someone feel better by posting their EV graph then so be it. I know I have been guilty of it. Many of us use this thread to vent (yes, obviously there is a line). I just think you go about venting in a different way (posting a ton of hh's). That makes what you said there pretty hypocritical.
rdonk, i wasn't talking about anyone on fcp.there are a few guys on 2+2 that bitch non stop in msnl about running "bad"
I was going to say, I don't think Jordan was bashing me or anyone else. The only reason I posted my EV graph was because someone requested it. And I agree, that a lot of the time, people just post EV graphs to say hey look, I'm running horrible. I do think its important when you're losing to honestly evaluate your play, and not just think you're getting hosed cause some graph says so. That being said, its also therapeudic (sp?) to post dumb hands or bad graphs sometimes. For me at least, I try and balance my 'haha I run like god' days with my '@#$#$^@$#%!@#$@$%' days. :)Today I'm running like god. Up the $4K I lost yesterday. Ship it!Mark

Id 4 bet a 40/40 preflop all day, no sense in slow playing a spew tard esp oop. Bet flop, bet turn. As played I call his river bet and expect to be ahead
