    Some changes to my playing schedule lately: Been cutting down on tables around (17-19 usually, but sometimes up to 24-25 if there's a lot of 9maxes running) and spending much more time to study and analyze.

    I've got some questions already about what I'll do when the new rewards system goes into effect in about a week, and I'm not really sure myself. So I will write about that again around mid-july probably.

    Some funny hand from yesterday as bonus. ;)

    Hi danitah, a quick question for you:

    I just got the red-box of death on pokerstas, forcing me to upgrade the client to the latest version. But when I do that then Sessionlords latest version wont work with it. If I downgrade PS I just get the upgrade box again and can't play. So I can only play without SL at the moment.

    Do you have the same problem, are you using SL at the moment on Stars?

    I didn't play yet, TO also seems to be incompatible. Might just play stars+pt4 and play few tables.

    Thank you for the shoutout, would not have expected them to come out with an update that fast.

    After first session I have to say new PS version is lagging like hell, even the attention bleep sounds are lagging ("Blee---eee---eep").

    Hmm weird, for me it feels like less lag than I had before. Could be lots of things but I'd maybe check that there's not too many games in lobby. For example even if using favorite tab, if you have tons of games in all games -> Sit&Go lobby, that has caused quite horrible lag for me before. Also one time I had 'Play Poker' tab in PT4 set to show All Hands, so it would constantly load all hands and caused quite horrible lag. So could be lots of things really, of course could be PS version just not working very well on your system.

    Working on HUD a bit today. You can fit a lot of stats even in 9max tables if you are a bit creative. ;) Some tweaking still needed though.

    I'm pretty sure I made 9max mistake with KK today. Tricky spot to calculate, but pretty sure we should only call AA here even when we have read that SB can make very bad calls. Not often you get 5-handed spot where KK is huge mistake. :P

    Hello danitah!
    How is the traffic now in hypers?
    Will you continue playing those after chests?
    I think its costs now much from rb.

    Yes I'm still playing hypers. Traffic is lower but games are also softer. Running 200BIs under EV this month so the rakeback is dearly missed. This month old rakeback would have been 25% of EV profits, but with this run it would have made actual profits 4 times higher.

    It's still uncertain what I will play in the future.

    Have had a couple of good days since my last post, which has helped my mindset a lot. Now is the time to crush and get out of this hole!

    2% equity preflop. Just interesting because I didn't even know you could have that low equity 3-way preflop. :P I wonder if this is close to lowest equity you can have.
