Although I play a bit lower than you, I tried to increase my ag and do so with betting after skipped c-bets. I do this as my standard approach right now. so from my point of view betting 1/2 pot here is very profitable. occasionally you run into a trap so a clear fold afer a c/r, but you will get your fold more than 33% of the time.
Villain will cbet any K, and any T. he might c/c a 9. if villain does not have a T you have 7outs. so everything is fine.

I've had a few very disappointing sessions recently where I have played extremely subpar, I've managed to steady the ship though and the BR is now peaking at >€1200.

As you can see from below I had a break evenish patch of ~10k hands, this was primarily down to me playing poorly. Thanks to the decent rakeback I'm getting though I was consistently growing the roll, just not at the rate that I feel I should be. In retrospect that sounds quite arrogant given that my current winrate is >14bb/100, but I know there were a few sessions where I lost a good bit more than I should have.

Had a couple of fun hands today, this was against a pool resident nit. Obviously I typically don't just jam in this spot but when he leads multiway I envision him having far more hands he plans to stack than not. By ripping I feel I rep a draw pretty hard as well.

This wasn't a particularly large pot, just a very funny one given how it went down and what villain showed up with.

I've had a couple of good short sessions and am up to a solid 15bb/100 win rate. I'm genuinely not sure what's going to be achievable long term in this pool. I don't believe my current results are sustainable but I would hope to be at >10.

you should move to NL50 or try on some sites NL30 to make transition easy

@kuca86 I will be at €1500 BR (currently €1300), the only issue is that the speed games don’t run at >20NL here so it’ll have to be the reg tables. Due to time constraints that doesn’t always suit me so will still be maintaining at least some volume in the 20NL speed pool. Transition to 50NL won’t be a problemso no need to move sites for 30NL, have played higher in the past.

Change site, i ve played some on ipoker, i know that field is soft, but rake is high. try play regular tables on MPN or move to party poker to play zoom NL50

I know exactly what you mean! Although I am not yet ready to move up from 20nl it is hard to plan! I too like speed poker due to a full time job so time constraints! The only alternatives are Party or Stars! Party was a reg fest last time I played there and I refuse to play at Stars as they are just greedy mothers!!

@kuca86 can you still track results on MPN just not use a HUD? Or do trackers just not work at all?
Posted 2 years ago*
you can track on reg tables but you can't on anon and i like it that way, i ve always like sites with out tracking software ,. i m playing poker for 9 years and only one year i was useing tracking software and i feel that i have huge edge when HUD is of the play against regs who use HUD
Posted 2 years ago
MPN tracks overall results but doesn’t track hands where you didn’t put money in the pot so things like hand counts/win rates etc won’t be accurate.

Sure take is reasonably high on ipoker but I get good rakeback and I quite like the software so not planning on moving anytime soon. The software thing is probably the biggest thing for me.

So the last few days have been pretty shitty, BR is down to ~€1160 from a peak of €1300ish. Some of it was playing bad, I tried 4 tabling and came to the conclusion that I just don't play well anymore with that many tables of speed poker so dropped back down to 2. I streamed for a bit and ran like ass but was happy(ish) with how I played. The chat was pretty dead on stream though so I cut my session off early and did what any self respecting degen would do. I went through some of my old accounts to look for money to play higher stakes where people would respect my raises.

888......cha ching!! $90. More than enough to play some 200NL.

Well nuts. That didn't last very long. I clearly wasn't thrilled when he leads here but wasn't folding with ~pot left after my pre raise.

Much better!!! I now have a genuine serious consideration about whether I want to take the $400 I ran up there and continue playing absurdly underrolled for higher stakes or use that as my money for the milly this weekend. The two main hands from ACR:

@Jef147 Are you “leveraged” in the pool by any chance? He’s one of the regs in the game that said to me in chat the other day that he reads this thread. If not, what is your username? Need to know to make sure I don’t bash you in this read by mistake Laugh
