    Well done on moving up the stakes so quickly.

    Gl with the tournaments - all you have to do is be the last player standing :)

    Thanks for the input Larson - and if only it were that easy :p

    Week 3 done:

    On the face of it a decent week, but I have had far too many unbelievably tilting sessions. Talked to a few of the cash regs and asked what their worst downswings were and what a standard downswing is. Answers varied from 20-30 to up to 54 which I'll admit scared the f**k out of me. I get tilted after losing 5 buy ins, I have no idea what kind of havoc a 54 buyin swing would bring me lol. But, with that in mind, I need to just buck up and stop being a little princess when it comes to losing a few buy ins and keep a level head.

    The good news is I have actually breached my 20 buy-in goal and am currently dancing around it now - currently sitting at 19.5. I reached 21 bi last weekend but decided I'm going to push the threshold up to 25 bi. I don't really know why, just feel I have some unfinished business at 20nl.

    - Run 10 Equilab calcs [0/7]
    - Go through and review top 5 winning and top 5 losing pots after every session [1/7]

    Been lazy with hand reviews, ergh, will do that more next week. Been doing a lot of tourny stuff with UKOPS round the corner. Taking today off bar the freeroll to try and have a more clear head for the start of the series.

    Another week down, another update;

    Topsy-turvy week but a good one all round. Been spending half my volume at 50nl now but still playing 20/30nl too. UKOPS has been a massive spanking so I haven't wanted to drop the 20nl games quite yet as I quite frankly need the BR boost.

    50nl is considerably harder with significantly more aggressive and all round better regs than 20/30nl. But it is very fun sitting at tables with a sea of red tags :D I still feel fairly comfortable at 50nl although I want to do a bit more work on 3b'ing and 3b calling ranges from various positions as often I am going a bit off-piste and winging many spots. Hasn't ended too badly. It's pretty fortunate that in my first couple sessions at 50nl I absolutely sunrunned which helped as the tables were particularly hard those sessions. Last couple late night sessions I haven't quite run as well, but the tables were considerably better. It's funny how that works sometimes..

    Harder to calculate exactly how many buy-ins I am up as I have been mixing 20/30/50nl tables, so my original benchmarks for moving up may as well be out the window and moving up will be about confidence levels and BR. Having said that, to my rough calcs I am currently sitting 41 BI up. May the upswing continue.

    - Run 10 Equilab calcs [0/7]
    - Go through and review top 5 winning and top 5 losing pots after every session [0/7]

    Super lazy re studying, have only been working on tournament stuff, although that seemingly hasn't helped as I've seen 0 success in UKOPS. Definitely starting to feel worn down after the series but will push on and looking forward to next week where I can have a break.

    As per, hands to follow

    is not for value lol

    big brain moves, or small brain, idk..but i got a big heart



    Thought this was an interesting spot, vs decent reg, probably have to call one, apparently they had 910hh (??) veeeeery interesting

    I don't always turn JJ into a bluff, but when I do it's when villain is super capped and I am not..vs v good reg

    vs the same v good reg.. a very rare limped pot bvb lol pretty fortunate result

    Tune in to next week of Camel button bashing and trying not to go broke
