    Where do you find these kind of players? He wasn't telling a story by calling your all in on the flop. Keep him marked and find him again, instant ATM..
    If someone doesn't hate you, you're a wimp... comp: circa 2012.. and now 2013 as well, quite likely continuing into 2014, Now confirmed as CONTINUING well into 2014. Ah, f'it, 2015's just more of the same..

    I hate NLO8, so much flippage, now lets go play some Micromillions NLO8 :D

    My sunday evening session is event1, event3, two 5 euro FO on titan, an added money on unibet and a 2000 man 5 dollar on party, lets do this

    And I don't worry too much about the fish, there's so so many of them it seems.

    Update: Flipped out of the Nlo8, jammed 50.000 chips over a 10k shove (I had 50 BBs) with AAJT ds only to get called behind in two spots and eliminated by a guy calling off his whole stack pre with 2358, did I mention I hate this game O__O

    Also messed up a bit in the unibet added money, Was sitting something like 18/29 with 24 players paid and due to the added money mincash was 50 euros or 5 BIs, yet I couldn't resist taking a super marginal spot opening A8s from the button and 4bet shoving 25 bigs over a SB 3 bet, I have no patience :<

    On a positive note I used up my entire timebank in event1 when I had 2BBs left in order to make an additional payjump worth 2 dollars, so you could say I'm rich now

    I'm 100% serious when I say I havn't figured out how to adjust vs these players, I see these lines super frequently with complete overaggression on flops in spots that never gets value from worse. I'm losing my heart, I'm not sure how to play flops anymore vs those guys. I'm trying to go for a fairly standard polarized cbet range while checking back most mid strength stuff. On this particular board that would mean betting overpairs, A10 K10, 33 44, any random 2 pair hands, possibly Q10, as well as KJ JQ probably most Ax combos not including A2 and A5 and probably also betting most connected undercards 89 78 etc.

    that leaves a checking range as something like 109 J10 a2 a5 and I guess I'd have to include A3 A4 and 55-99 in it simply because it lacks combos, this in theory gives me an easy decision vs action on the flop but I hate checking hands my opponent have such good equity vs (55-99) 3 way. And if they're fucking shipping in 108 what care they flatting, and what do I double barrel? I feel kinda lost.

    As played I made it quite big pre since it was my first hand on the table and I figured I could just shrink it down later. Flop bet sizing I'm happy with since there's super little to protect against if they are unpaired on that flop

    Yesterdays omaha win was great for my head, I have been playing 2-3 sessions with a super defetist mentality. I've been running sub average for sure, especially when it comes to flops, most tournametns have been feeling like sitting with around starting stack for 1.5 hours just waiting, and waiting, and missing, and waiting and folding, and watching people spew, and folding, and waiting and losing flips.

    A hand I especially remember was me sitting with QKs in the BB facing two loose limpers, I made it 4 BBs and got two callers. Flop was something nasty like 567 two spades and I decided this was just not in my range and for sure in their ranges. SB donk shoved flop for 2x pot, I folded and the other limper called. The result of the hand was SB ended up winning with 9 high after shoving 92s and flopping a gutshot and flushdraw vs the other guys 82s flopping an open ended draw. The struggle is very real to get into a healthy mentality to play vs these people

    I miss playing rebuys, those were great, who decided to rake the hell out of them and run so few of them :<

    As of today we come back to playing a session each day again with a bit of a different appraoch, I will aim to be more exploitative in my micro stakes. Bankroll sitting somewhat steadily just under 950 dollars

    final table time, coming in 1/6 out of 225 on party (5 dollar PLO). 300 dollars up top, I've been getting crushed all night and I had almost given up hope on a profitable sunday. This could do it

    Edit: 3rd for 140 dollars, nice nice

    More omaha madness. Sitting 1/7 on a 5 dollar party PLO again, 220 dollars up top, lets have some rungood

    Edit: Got AA v 66 set over set BvB and coming in onto the final table with half the chips in play

    Edit2: Shipped it for 220 , semi deep in two more PLO tourneys, might get more

    edit3: Second PLO ft for the night, coming in 2/6 on a 5 euro rebuy on titan. My final two table table was like they interviewed a bunch of guys asking "Do you know any other moves than to limp full range pre from every position and never size larger than minbets postflop? No? You're hired to sit at this table!"

    300 euros up top, one can dream

    edit4: Finished 2nd against what I'm assuming is the best low stakes PLO reg the site has to offer, he was extremely mediocre tho, will get him next time

    Good idea, I just reached BOTH identical final tables as yesterday. It would mean today is insanely profitable except I was spewing a lot of buyins earlier today lol. Oh well, big..ish money up top, insane to reach these two days in a row. Lets finish this running good!

    On another note I busted the guy I lost heads up to yesterday, turns out he wasn't the best titan had to offer. There are a couple of players at my table who are winning a lot of money lifetime and actually playing decently well, I guess that makes it more interesting

    edit: Finished 4th on party for 104 dollars and sitting heads up on titan against a player who I'd actually destroy if we were playing HU cash. I've had him all in pre 4 times without winning, I could be sleeping by now x___x I really want the additional 110 euros from winning this heads up tho, I really really don't want to lose to this guy. On titan I'll either win 192 or 302 euros

    Triple omaha deep runs including a final table and I'm f drunk. Alcohol isn't the most profitable strategy but this does feel amazing :D

    Update: Finished 2nd in the one I final tabled

    Update2: Just entered another final table on party, 357 dollars up top, coming into the top 6 with a pretty significant chip lead. fuck yes I shipped it, heads up was brutal...for him, it was fun watching the "please discuss a deal...please" checkmark of his while I was smashing through his stack 200k chips at the time

    The greatest feeling in a session is just straight up shipping the turbo omaha8 10 dollar tourney for 220 dollars or something early in the session and know you're gonna finish in the black for the day. Lets go, my roll is getting pretty healthy but I still have no idea if I'm a good or bad omaha player, and I'm not even kidding

    Update: I was spewing off quite a few buyins in the middle of the session but I'm finishing off coming in 1/6 out of 213 players in a 5 dollar NLHE tourney, I havn't gone deep in NL in a while, this is a great confidence builder...and bankroll builder

    update2: 1/4 in the break. Gonna cash between 86 and 265 dollars

    Update3: Shipped the whole thing for 265 dollars, I'm almost scared to play the next session because I've used up all my karma for a lifetime

    Current bankroll is sitting at:

    - 1500 SKR
    - 506 euros
    - 1262 dollars

    That's probably roughly 2k, not bad not bad
