From comments you had on another thread about dissecting a hand I can understand your taking your poker seriously so if I may be so bold about 'stressing the max' for stats and other things related to stringing sessions together is the fact that if we are always stressing maximums sooner or later we find what also breaks. What may be your favorite flavor others may spit on the floor for a correct amount of hands played to declare to certain victory. It sounds like your playing six tables at once to get an avg. of 400 hph? At 20? I guessing your actually saying 0.10-.020? Are they 6max, are they a 'fast table' and your only needing 4 tables? Both factors considering, I think are important because of playing a read and playing on math based decisions can generate different outcomes for short and long term tracking depending on how many tables your on unless your using table ninja (which would also be valuable). Please understand what I mentioned above was not to be sarcastic but rather take your good swing with a smile and don't drift so high in the air that would make you spew it back when you return to the earth. Stringing profit is GREAT it's the moments we live for after hours of draining discussions, swallowing our pride, protecting hands controlling pots and hammering the gas in a multi-way pot with the stone cold nuts! Be happy about it, but you also seem knowledgeable enough about it to know where you are right now. I've found myself in too many spots of jumping in stakes after 2 weeks of this type of thing to go up and pistol whip the next (or even 2 higher) to find variance waiting at the door with a donkey crying about a stolen purse.... Just a reminder about the cards and just how mean the deck is.
GL on the felt
Yes I am talking about 0.10/0.20. I play mix FR and 6 max tables but all normal speed.
I have played poker for a long time but I feel now is the time I have finally over come my extreme tilting habit so now my win rate can accurately show how good or bad a player I really am.
I actually played 0.25/0.50 having built enough bankroll through the lower levels but I tilted much of it away. So I made a goal that I am gonna only play 20NL until I have the discipline to show a great win rate over a big sample of hands. I once again have the bankroll to play 50NL but I am going to keep playing 20NL for now.
Yes I take my poker very seriously I honestly don't play online poker for fun as I don't find playing 6 tables much fun. I'll either be very good at poker or I'll quit, time will tell. Thank you for your input.
