Hands Played June - 191146
Today was a complete disaster. First day at NL25. Thank you Pokerstars! Ran about as worse as I have all year. I was down 9 buyins at one point. I managed to get back to minus 4 buyins so I count that as a victory. I played pretty good today but in retrospect there are a few big pots where if I thought things through a bit more, a very difficult, but correct fold, was there. I really need to work on this as it totaled 2.5 buyins today that could have been saved if I was on my A+ game. I played a bit more aggressive today that normal. 14/12/4 with a 4% 3bet. I think it is fine.
But I should have just nitted it up more cuz I have hardly any info on the regs or even the fish. I lost a lot of money today in non showdown spots b/c I simply could not get people to fold anything. A good part of this is running bad though. They just had it every single time today.
There are a few pretty good regs at NL25. Real solid guys who are very aggressive. I shipped 88 preflop for value against one of them today. I'm not used to these kind of players as they are non existent at NL2 and NL5. Obviously NL25 plays much tighter but all and all, it is about what I expected. There are still lots of fish and most of the regs are way too nitty and passive like at NL5.
VPP rate is .084 on my 11k hand sample which is about what I expected. Unfortunately I will probably come up just short of Platinum this month. But stellars move really quickly now, and FPP pile up fast. Oh and the day I leave the nanostakes PokerStars implements a 10x VPP month lol. Whatever, I won't be playing down there hopefully ever again.
