Been grinding and shit lately. Just grinding a mixture of FLSH and PLO. Microgaming has been a lot tighter then I remember but then again it is all about what stakes as some people are very stagnant about that, usually a bad idea. So 25c/50c which ive been playing has been pretty bad which kinda sucks. Pokerstars.es continues to be usually good and I run good there too. Today was kinda shitty since I played 1462 hands of PLO, lost 327$ but all in EV was +102. Perhaps there have been too many times where ive kinda lost a little focus and made a lot of borderline plays. Im thinking if I should develope a sort of table-trapping down system where I can play x tables for the first hour then the second hour I do x-2 tables or something and then for session number 2 of the day ill go with 4tabling or whatever. I dunno, we will see about that when we get back to Europe and grind in a more structured way.

Here is a hand I played which was kinda sick. Given my action you guys can probably tell that I have a note that he likes to steal pots when I show weakness. My play could still be bad, it is pretty deep and even though I was right this time, perhaps this was showing me being a bit too gambly. I love the run it twice-function btw but it kinda sucks losing 2 of 2 in a 520 bb pott when you are 70% to win. 9% to lose both, 49% to win both, I guess that isnt too sick.

All and all I have played 12427 hands of PLO since the summer break and isssch, I am a winner ev BB/100 but that doesnt pay the bills, does it?!

FLHE has been going very well, 4603 hands and 5,01 BB/100.

Maybe I should study a bit more PLO and focus on FLHE. The humidity and heat over in the Carribean makes me kinda tired and lose concentration more quickly (no AC btw) and my B-game at PLO is a lot worse than my FLHE-B-game. Ive played 33 hours of poker now for the summer, im gonna continue a bit more this week then ill likely travel around here, do some scuba diving and stuff.
