    Another day another 1.000.000 chip stack. Making a deep run in another NLHE tournamnt on party, tonight is a final rehersal for tomorrows live session and it's almost like a flip switched and I can go deep now. Partly thanks to a bunch of Doug Polk clickbait videos lol

    Update1: titan final table came out of nowhere, coming in 1/9 in a 2k GT 10euro NLHE mtt, I ran great with 2 tables left, was down to 2 BBs at a point

    Update2: Shipped the 10 euro titan for 430 euros. These sessions are ridiculously profitable right now, also sitting 7/7 on a party poker final table, I'll win between 54 and 428 dollars

    Update3: 44 v K10 for 7th. I did double up to 740k in my last 10 dollar knockout tho, maybe a third final table of the night?

    Update4: did some disgusting things and now I have 3,4 million chips and a 100 dollar bounty on my head. Good thing no one will ever see my hand history O__O

    I just came back from playing live. I played a 1300 SKR event with 33 players, I played more or less well and ended up finishing 2nd just barely missing out on a package for a live event but winning, 7400SKR.

    Then I played omaha with idiots, I'm salty about that game. The game was PLO 20/20 with a forced 40SKR straddle, I bought in for 3000SKR, put 2k on the table and kept 1k for refills. Three hands in I played 4567ds vs a raise and saw a 378 rainbow flop that I shipped my last potsized bet for, I got called in two places and binked a 4 on the river which was nice so I more than tripled up to 6500SKR.

    I didn't want to just walk so I stuck around and in a pot straddled to 80 I limped AAK5 single suited, button raised to 320, straddle called and I raised it up pot to 1700. Both players called and we saw a flop of 234 two clubs (which I didn't have), straddle donkshoved into me for his last 800 and I shoved in my remaining 3.5k and got a call from the button as well. We ran it twice and I ended up losing both to turned and rivered flushes.

    Ofc I get that varience is a thing but if I play a game where I get the button to put in 1700SKR pre with less than a pot sized bet behind for the flop holding 233J single suited I don't even fucking know... All in all I shouldn't be too unhappy, profited about 2500 SKR from the trip and had a good time, it's just unfortunate that I lost a 17.000 SKR pot to 223J and KT85 both holding clubs when I even had the ace of clubs in my hand, really makes me wonder what havoc I could wreck if I lived in stockholm and was rolled for these ridiculous games

    It's sunday, I had 7 solid hours of sleep and some sushi and I'm doing a sunday session, maybe my last session in a few days we'll see.

    Note to self: In big fields, knockout or non knockout knocking players out doesn't matter, for the first 3 hours, if I think villain may not be strong I should value bet one fifth pot or something disgusting every single time if it means chipping up rather than trying to go for hero overbets or knockouts

    Sitting 1/23 out of 2140 in PPs "the jab" . After these small stakes big fields lately I'm pretty much the Swedish Phil Hellmuth if Phil Hellmuth was a cat and didn't have temper issues. Don't ask how that fits, it just does

    Care to explain the turn raise w Q6? He's probably never raising 2 pair on the turn. Basically has bluffs and a 10 for str8. He's never folding a 10 obv. So why raise. Was it a value raise or a bluff? If a bluff what are we trying to get them to fold?

    As played it's likely your 6 is good, why not let them bluff river too if we flat turn raise. Btw we'd likely only flat the raise with a 10 or nuts also and not raise ourself.

    basically I don't think i'm beating enough of his bluffs. Also I'm specifically trying to fold out the bottom end of the straight.

    I feel like with my turn sizing it can easily be read as a weak protection bet which it mostly is but I feel like I also have more J10 than he does and it's not inconcievable that I'd play those with a weak turn bet either. It's a combination of timing tells from villain that I felt at the time were suspicous, the fact that I wasn't too keen on showing down Q6o for image reasons, because I felt like he could be playing top pair like this because (I feel like some people just kinda wake up with the, I has pair what are you doing? raise) and also because I didn't want to let him valuebet river with his 5x in this spot.

    Something that I've been thinking tho is that I may be very exploitable in these spots, I feel like my nut hands are much more often shoving and most times I go for the "hey, it looks like you maybe maybe have fold equity here" I feel like they often do have fold equity.

    I'm not saying it's a 100% the perfect play, but I went with what I felt at the time. Also on an unrelated note I'm sitting 1/5 in a titan omaha tourney, 315 euros up top =)

    I'm playing a bunch of sattelites to both puna ca...carrib...that warm country, as well as Russia for some reason. The idea is that sattelites should make me better at ICM and tighten my ranges up a bit. Now that I have 2600+ dollars on party and 900+ euros on titan I don't even know what my next goal should be so I'm just goofing around with a bunch of 2 dollar sattelites and we'll see if something sticks until I can decide.

    I'm not yet sure i'm comfortable moving up to 22 dollar tournaments and facing the regs there since my style has been so heavily exploitative

    This feels like a major weakness of mine, I'm trucking along, trucking along and then get played back at and just go "fuck it lets gambol"

    I'm not sure where to begin looking at the math to make me feel better about folding this part of my range in these spots

    I don't love playing AAK5 out of position at all in a game where they're likely to pressure your whole stack too wide lol.

    If I were to pot it pre instead of limping, how would you like to play the 234 two club flop postflop three way? With results in hand I'm 100% sure if we cbet the straight button calls and BB shoves and if we check it goes bet behind us and BB shoves, and this is one of our good flops to hit lol

    I'm not really a PLO cash player but what do you dislike about the hand? I'm all for keeping the pot small and trying to use a postflop edge but don't you think it's more profitable just to slam the money in against a wide preflop range if we can leave just under a pot sized bet for the flop?
