Yesterday, I got my luckboxing skills back. I had my luckiest session I could ever remember - I was +3.1K in EV. First, I won a nut straight > nut straight when I hit my flush on the river. Then I won a AT > AA preflop. And I also won a KK > AA preflop (sorry John K). Shockingly, I'm still down in ev for the month.
Yesterday was also the first day I seriously considering using a stop-loss. A stop-loss is when you stop playing because you lost a certain amount of money. I was up over 4K after a few hours and in about 30 minutes, I was only up 2K. I made a few questionable plays, like 3bet/shoving over a nit's 4bet with QQ (he had KK ldo). Then I called down someone in a 4way 3bet pot with 33 because he didn't bet the flop and only started betting when the third flush card hit the turn. He had AA - I really thought he had AK with a diamond. I rarely tilt, so I never felt the need to put in a stop loss. And the longer I play, the more money I should expect to make (assuming my judgment is unaffected). But I kept playing and my ev line eventually went to zero by the end of the session. Fortunately for me, I'm a luckbox and ended up 3K on the day. Luckbox + moron > common sense.
It appears that I was wrong about all the PFRs at a table adding to 100, because the PFR statistic INCLUDES 3bets. So you can have more than 1 person credited for being a pre-flop raiser per hand. Gee this makes me even nittier than ever. Great!
