Well sorry for the lack of updates, i had a wekeend at a nearby beach and didnt played that much.
Well july started with me deciding that im just not cut for pokerstars, i dont know the software(great btw) just doesnt fit me, and the lack of RB is a big issue for me, so i decided to move to FTP where the RB is generous and the signup bonus is great.
As soon as i started playing there i played really bad, got into many weird spots, tilted and lost like 140dollars, but it was even thanks to the bonus and RB, so i decided to rethink and start something new, my shorthanded style was really weak and nitty, im just not that good at mindless agression and that kind of stuff, im much better(IMHO) at spotting bluffs, being more passive and more mathematical approach to the game so i thought on giving FR a try.
FR for me is something new, i never really played FR because when i started i could only play 4 tables, i was really slow, so i thought it was boring and i sticked to shorthanded games because they where basicaly faster, but know that im capable of playing 12 tables at stars(fast) 6 handed i decided to give it a shot.
At first it was kinda weird, just playing nitty and wait for great hands, so people stack off, people at FT low limits(this is mostly true at all sites except Stars imo) are really bad, really really bad, im not saying that im great, is just that i have a little more experience and more mathematical knowledge than most lowlimit players so i have a good edge.
Well enough of blablabla, i will post some stats.
I still do retarded 6max things like stacking with tptk, which im currently working a lot on making more folds because of the nittyness.
Decent, So far.

Well my goals are all going really well, i completed the first one and im starting good on the second one.
What i noticed that NL5 changes dramatically in pokerstars, because of the fact that the games are really deepstacked, since the sugested minimum bi in ps is 6dlls(120bb) is often doable playing with 300~500bb, this is a implied odds fest, because people cant fold anything, so you have to play a little diferent, making wilder calls for draws etc...
Well on to the stats.
Hopefully next week i can be playing NL10 again.
Im back :)

Well after a long absence(almost 2 weeks) im back, the reasons because i left are that i lost a lot playing NL25 and i was tilting A DAMN LOT So i decided ask my friend baal to ban me for a week, obv. i was running so bad in life also that lots of my friends who owed me money didnt payed me in time to get my internet payments done, so i spent another week away from LP, i missed the Negreanu to Team Pokerstars thread .
Well my plan after a lot of thinking is to, first rebuild my roll and my confidence back, obv this isnt easy, i have been working hard doing the analisis of my plays and generally my game.
My biggest problem is that i tilt a lot, this isnt good, because running bad+tilting isnt a healthy way to get back in action, so im focusing a lot in not tilting, i must say this isnt easy, but im working OK.
Other problems are:
1.- I tend to make fancy plays, which arent at all needed at the stakes i play, so im trying to remove them completly from my game, at least for now.
2.- I tend to not give the importance to position as i should do, same VPIP almost in all positions(THIS IS REALLY BAD ALSO)
3.- IM A STATION, i just dont give credit to people enough. im folding a lot more, from 35~ Went to showdown im down to 29, still stationy but it is a lot better.
4.- I was playing really laggish when it is not needed, again not for now, i was at 29/25, i lowered that a lot, im multitabling a lot more now, my usual tables where 4~6, now im playing 12 always(NL2 again).
5.- I think im not agressive enough, after some lessons with myth he told me it was OK, my numbers are like 1.5, flop 3, turn .75 River 1.2 So im a little passive, even though i remember seeing some PoorUser stats and he was like 1.8~2 and from TalentedTom also he has quite low AF, still i dont see it that big of a deal but, i will try to work on that.
Start all over again, play ultranitty style in the NL2 and NL5 games, probably up to NL10, like im doing right now, im still safelly rolled to NL25 but i dont want to play there right now, im still afraid(you all will laugh, but still the same to me).
-Play at least 10k hands at NL2*
-Build a roll to 150 at least before moving up to NL5.
-Play at least 10k hands at NL5
-Build roll at least to 300 before moving to NL10.
-Play at least 10k hands at NL10.
-Build a roll to 700 before moving to NL25.
*im very short to fullfull this goal.
Here are some results from the last couple of days.
Stats from PT
Hopefully this can change for good, thanks all for reading.
