Since i started playing on Poker Stars in 2009 I played over 500k tournaments, 8 millions hands, 3700 hrs.
It is a nice milestone but at the end only what matters is how much money you have done and how enjoyably and in perspective you spent that time.

I always seen poker as a job which makes you a lot of more free time than you would ever had with common jobs for a living. If you are good enough you have an option to choose to have more money or time. I did some compromise but sometimes think i took the 2nd option a little more but have to say i spent that additional time effectively and gained a lot of experience from other branches. This experience changed my mind a lot. I just see things differently than i did couple of years ago. Money from poker is the one thing but this is another form of win.

Another milestone soon ?.....

Regarding last post i don't like to say this but i have stopped my HU transition.
I am not that kind of person who changes plans often but i decided to spend that time another way (yea my dear friend Martcho, i am back in the business).
Someday i would like to continue in that because think i learned too many things just to throw them away.

Last weeks it's been tough for my profit line. I am slowly but surely reaching the "milestone" 1000 buy-ins under EV and all of that under last 98 playing hrs.
Basically If you play so long, played hundreds of thousands of tournaments it has to come.
Yep, but within 100 hrs ? No one would expect it at all, wouldn't ?

How is your feelings ?
At the end of each session you just wish to see EV=profit line, not really any much more.
Thinking about running better than EV is out of my mind.

Hope my opponents spend my EV money wisely, coz ill take it back someday anyway only if PS allows it (of course, they do not).

First feelings - HU

Basically there are 2 ways how to start the 1st serious session at the new format.
You are lucky and win most of your games then realize how good you are and what a nice future you have at that particular format without a little thinking that it is not over yet regarding to keep studying and hard working.
(Un)fortunately i wasn't that case. I ran terrible as much as you can. You know that session when everything goes wrong, coolered every top 10% hand and opponents keep doing all of kind crazy moves but hit the miracle card on the next street to easily stack off you and you looking as an idiot every minute and don't know why (of course you know).
Then you start realizing how big is your edge. My conclusion was "wtf i have no edge there"...at least that first sessions. OK, i wasn't so innocent, it just wasn't only about bad luck, definitely have to say i have many leaks need to be plugged.
It really had pissed me off and because I don't like this kind of failure right after finishing 3hr opening session i was back at learning process and trying to find all answers to questions i have had at the table.

Understand, a question at the table means you are not sure what to do or what is the best to do.
This is one of the most often problem at poker players why they suck. They are not sure what they do, if they do it right but keep playing another months, years without a need to find out what is the right, optimal play making them most of money.

There is another thing need to be said about this HU challange. If you ask how big chances i have to be winning in this format, someone can say, oh well pretty big if you can be highly profitable at any other STT format.
Yes, it might be true but the problem is not to be just profitable here.
I need to be close to crushing this format to be satisfied, meaning have competing hourly to 9man / 6max and that makes this challange pretty hard. Only the way how to achieve it is to become one of the best  // said sadly and this must be done without any impact to my standard 6max play from time point of view. That's my requirement of this HU transition and because of that i expect a very slow way to my place i want to be someday.

There it is....

This is that short video of my standard regular session. I am not saying this is an optimal way how to play a poker but it suits me from point of view of action and giving me 300 tournaments / 1 hr which is trully interesting number.
Also need to say sometimes it is pretty hard to hold up this tempo for more than 1 hour realizing you make more than 3600 decisons within that time. Forget playing this style more than 2 hrs without a break, i have found it as an impossible mission. But no big deal you can adjust this.
Another important thing might be a question how many misclicks you make by this play. It depends how much tired (mentally and physically) you are. There are the times you can handle 35 tables without any misclick and then moments you suck at 25 tables. I am not playing strictly 30 tables it varies from 25-40 but given last PS problems with high multitabling i stay rather close to 30 tables and not trying more in these times.

HU - starting

A month ago i decided to become a more complex player and learn HU format.
There was not much time to spend on the studying so probably that's the reason why just now i can say "lets get started" and gain some serious experience from the tables.
I learned basic and advanced theory and now i need the practice to find out population tendencies and learn to react accordingly.

During that month i played a little of course just to find out what i need to know, to study more. Also i tried both speeds - turbo and super turbo.
Need to say that more enjoyable is turbo with 1500 stack, also your edge is logically higher but the future is faster agressive format named Hyper turbo with starting stack 500 chips.
The sample size is not so big, but i had pretty interesting edge there especially postflop.

Another thing is that i have realized i am not so strong as i thought in psychical endurance. Yes, in tilting, lol. Hard to admit that. The reason of that seems to be simple and obvious.
I made up the system of play which is tilting free but it requires some poker experience to use it at a table so definitely wouldn't recomment it to a novice. In my (still not released) video can be seen.
I have been using this all the time on satellites and now on HU's it is impossbile to continue with for obvious reasons.
Means i need to be more humble, modest and focus on the right play instead of looking at cashier and short-term results, all of it again like 4 years ago.

However my starting point is buy-in 15usd. Expecting playing over 1-2k games and will see what happens next.

1st vid of my Tetris

PS forced me to make a record of my session for some reasons but that is another story i will tell some other time....
However i have decided to rework this record to a video spot of my multitabling.
It will be a short 3-4min vid to see my standard session.
You will see it's more Tetris game than poker.

Lifetime achievement

Today i manually updated my PS client because i could not connect before the start of my 1st session. Sure that wasn't that cause, in that time server was restarted but sometimes i 1st do some random action before reading any news in the client.

Suddenly after updating i seen a new icon behind my SN status. That's a lifetime achievement, you can get it if you get over 1 million VPP's.

It can not be so amazing for me as it might seems coz there is another thousands ppl having it. Also a part of me is still saying you should have it much more earlier if you would decided to go for SNE. Yes thats true but who cares about SNE ? Not everyones....

More interesting is to be the one with a certain profit and be only 1 million vpps sng player.
Not many ppl have it and go this way.

Want to be a master ?

It is quite known that if you want to master at something you have to spend approximately 10 000 hours on it.
Thinking how many hours i have spent on poker.. well, it should be close to 9 000 hrs, that means if everythings will go right somewhere in the middle of next year i could become a "master" of this game, lol.
But the true fact is that you definitely can't feel like a master in this game ever because there is still a lot of things to learn to understand better and of course who knows my poker background has to know there is no chance i can say it about MTT or CG even a little.

After spending to many hrs not surprising thing is you can't learn too much at all anymore. There is not many "Aha momenet's" left means that is so much harder to be better in this game.

Anyway, i think there always be a lot of room for the improvement at the psychical aspects. Just to be mentally stronger (especially at the bad times) and this makes the differences between being good and great (the best one).

Coaching - CLOSED


Na 9-man jsem se specializoval 2,5 roku. Prošel jsem buy-iny od 3 do 60usd, z nichž největší vzorek (kolem 90%) mám z buy-inu 16tek ($15+1) a odehrál tak přes 50k turnajů, 3 milióny hand.

Graf při průměrném 28 tablingu (začátek na 16 a konec na 35 stolech): 

Nabízím: mé znalosti formátu SNG 9-man (6max's nekoučuji)

Stakes / buy-ins: všechny. Strategie je na všech buy-inech z 99% stejná, jen se mění počet hodně špatných, špatných, BE, dobrých, hodně dobrých hráčů u stolu, kterým se musíme přizpůsobovat.
1 hod = $65
5 hod = $290 (10% sleva)
10 hod = $550 (15% sleva) + poskytnutí 50 turnajových hh‘s

Aby cenové podmínky byly pro hráče více přijatelnější a dostupnější, tak jsem se rozhodl pro možnost skupinových koučingů, které významně sníží celkovou cenu.

Skupina 2 studentů:
1 hod = $50 každý
5 hod = $225 (10% sleva) každý
10 hod = $425 (15% sleva) každý

Skupina 3 studentů:
1 hod = $45 každý
5 hod = $200 (10% sleva) každý
10 hod = $380 (15% sleva) každý

Skupina 4-5 studentů:

1 hod = $40 každý
5 hod = $180 (10% sleva) každý
10 hod = $340 (15% sleva) každý


Způsob a forma platby:
předem přes PS nebo FT (nick u obou stejný Roy4lpl4yor (Czech Republic)). Jelikož s profit dealy (% z profitu) mám špatné zkušenosti, tak tuto možnost nenabízím.

Délka lekcí:
z mých zkušeností a ostatních poker. koučů doporučuji 2-hodinové lekce (bez přestávek). Nicméně vždy vyjdu vstříc studentovi, pokud bude trvat na kratší délce (avšak min. délka je 1hod) popř. delší.

Použitý software:
Joinme, popř. Mikogo + Skype,

Způsob spojení a průběh lekcí:
lekce budou probíhat tak, že se student připojí přes výše uvedený software na moji plochu, kterou s ním budu sdílet. Předem pošle hand histories, které budeme analyzovat přes Universal Replayer a ICM software (pokud tomu nebude jinak na žádost studenta).

Prosím, ony hh's posílejte ve formátu, v jakém je ukládá PS/Party na váš disk a ne jako export z HM.
Dále se ujistěte, že jsou v EN jazyce (platí jen pro ty, kteří doposud nepoužívali HEM/PT a nebyli tak nuceni si změnit jazyk u hh's).

Kouč. historie:
v minulosti jsem trénoval pouze 5 hráčů (nepočítám sem lekce, kratší než 2 hod.) z toho dva velice seriózním způsobem v délce kolem 20 hodin, pro které to, dle jejich slov, byla dobrá investice, která se jim do pár týdnů, měsíců luxusně vrátila.
Onen nízký počet studentů je hlavně z toho důvodu, že jsem koučing nikdy moc nevyhledával, jelikož mi hraní přinášelo větší radost, navíc jsem si studenty striktně vybíral především dle odehraného volume, které nyní nepožaduji. Dávám tak možnost opravdu každému.
Edit: k 1.10.2013 odkoučováno 150+ hodin

Extra info:
- všechny informace mezi mnou a studentem budou důvěrné. Nepoužiji ho jako referenci, pokud mi nedá svolení, nebudu nikde sdílet jeho hh‘s, nicky a grafy z heren.
- vždy se budu prioritně zaměřovat na odstranění takových leaků, které mají největší vliv na profit (pokud tomu nebude jinak na žádost studenta)
- koučing je investice jako každá jiná, jejíž návratnost není nikdy zaručena. Za pár hodin z vás jistě neudělám super winning hráče, ale rozhodně se stanete mnohem, mnohem LEPŠÍM.

Jestli máte jakékoliv další otázky, neváhejte je postnout níže nebo mně kontaktovat přímo na mém e-mailu Roy4lpl4yor@seznam.cz


Prosím, v případě zájmu mi posílejte rovnou e-mail, kde mi sdělíte vaši představu, formu koučingu, počet hodin, které si přejete odkoučovat a váš preferovaný čas (klidně přímo navrhněte čas první lekce). Také uveďte o sobě krátké info, zkušenosti s pokerem, ať mám předem nějakou představu, s kým mám tu čest.

Bude možno se se mnou +- domluvit na následujích časech:
po-čtv od 12:15 do 14:45, 18:15 do 22:15
pátek jen v odpoledních hodinách

Délka nabídky a výše cen se bude odvíjet od zájmu studentů a na těchto stránkách budou tyto informace vždy aktuální.

Show must go on

Přesunul jsem se na portál Poker-Arena.cz a vytvořil na SNG fóru vlákno (http://www.online-poker-zdarma.cz/forum/viewtopic.php?f=140&t=2239), kde se mně můžou hráči zeptat na vše, co je zajímá z pohledu prof. poker. hráče, navíc včetně strategických otázek k formátu 9-man, takže pokud má někdo zájem, jste tam vítaní.
