anyone done it? really hard to get back into it? i'm finding it so
hobbies aren't a thing
what your hobby? (even though not a thing)
since i as doing it regularly. i'm finding it very difficult to get back into the right way of thinking about the game. i think it will come back. i am findign myself applying theory incorrectly in a lot of spots that used to be routine
bit worried I'm gonna suck
we should have a DiS NL hold 'em night one evening now you're down here. or summat.
I can't provide a venue but I have a semi-decent chip set and stuff
i could hold it in the flat atm with some moving stuff about. but might be moving v soon. either way i'll let you know. might even do a THREad
Been half and half out for months. Fibromyalgia and the ongoing injuries that comes with it doesn't help. But that.
not at all comparable, but I gym'd for the first time in months on Sunday and subsequently havne't been able to straighten my arms without extreme agony. would've thought four months of replacing exercise with booze and crisps could be so enervating.
I'm not saying it is here btw
Or mostly "you don't look ill".
Not that I'm wandering around being all like "argh, I'm ill" but working out is a constant challenge of what you can get away with / what you have to work around.
Also I'm one of those boners with a back support and wrist supports when I'm tiny and lifting nothing.
What's an appropriate range to resteal from the SB when the BB is overly nitty vs a button playing 25/22 at 6max 25NL?
Amongst other things
That's not even a resteal range.
77+, A7s+, K9s+, QTs+, JTs, ATo+, KTo+, QTo+
Is this why I only win small or lose big at poke her?
Call wide, raise flops. Stop 3betting big hands so your range is stronger than he thinks. 3b junk occasionally.
Feels like choosing to play pots out of position is bad? I wish I could remember poker. Aren't you letting them see flops with a wide range in position?
I prefer to keep in weak hands though if i know its gonna be HU and i have a hand which i know i can play quite easily like large pairs, even if OOP. Plus its really easy to play against someone who 3bets because you can just 4bet if they do it too much or fold. Someone who calls and raises your cbets can suddenly rep anything and puts you in tons of tricky spots with hands where theyre gonna make a mistake by folding too much to you or calling down only to find out you have a hand that they never thought could be in your range.
but think about the hands you make the most money from like sets flushes and big pairs. 3betting preflop you can only rep one of those things. Raising flops you can rep all of them. Im not saying never 3bet, just in cases where the pot is HU you can make life much more difficult.
Out of curiosity, and I understand if not, would you be willing to share any of your hand histories?
n think deleted all my old pokerstars ones when i got a new hard drive.
i probably should have kept all my HH's. Could have had a graph over 2m hands.
No strat in bbv
I can't remember why I got into it, but I guess it was just as they were getting cool and that is when I got to the age where I got my first "proper" bike. Plus I grew up quite near some actual hills. It was amazing looking back, we used to go on proper all day treks around Caerphilly, this is from around 13 years old. Just kids alone on a hillside desolate. We got more into it, some of us liked doing jumps and gnarly downhills, I was more into it for the scenery and a day out. I still have my bike but it is fucked and gathering dust in the garage. I still have an urge in a way but would rather just walk it than bike it. I even fancy getting a run of the mill road bike for city commuting, that would have been unthinkable back in the day.
Now I've been playing it again, and I can see me losing my mind to it. I loved chess, still do.
Joined a club last year on the back of getting back into it. Forgot how immersive the game could be.
and seeing how into it she has got, is rekindling my excitement.
Youre not 13 with a limited income and a billion friends to do other stuff with. Do it properly or not at all.
