That is the graph of this first session, pretty small I know, and also mixed with 0,5-1 games. Overall I like the shape and specially the fact that I still can have a positive blue line AND a positive (or at least break even) red line, that is key.
For now I'll keep playing my regular game and see how it can perform at this new level.
I played a live tournament yesterday. Not something that I plan to do on a regular basis, but definitely will do once in a while.
To be honest I was kind of surprised with the quality of some players, overall the player pool has a very poor understanting of the game, but at least two guys knew what they were doing, and that my frineds to a live enviroment is huge. It was very small, only 16 players, but 3 decent players in a field of 16 is something that draws attention, the majority of the players felt somewhere between fish and wanna be reg, but at least 4 players were really awfull.
I always have fun when I play live, people like to discuss strategy, openly talk about their thoughts and the lines they like to use on each spot. I found those pieces of information incredibly usefull, not only in a particular live session, but also ,and even of more relevancy, as a way to better understand the thought process of some fish. That is something that hugely contributed to incress my profit at poker, this desire to better understand how fish think, why they play this game, why they use certain lines. Try to better understand fish and you will fry them like never before...
Never Bluff The Fish
We all know that, fish cant be bluffed. Is that true? Is it always -ev to try to bluff fish? I'll try to discuss this in deep on my next post, for now I'll let an interesting hand that I played recently.
