before i write this whole post, i must admit that I've been running terribly in turbo sngs for a couple of months. and i keep just passing it off as variance, but maybe i need to plug a leak. I'm thinking that it's often harder and more stressful being a winning player than it is to be a losing player. What i mean is, much of the time, I am taking bad beats more than i'm giving bad beats.
For the last few months, I've been losing a TON of 60/40s. Most of the time, i'm a 60 and i just cant seem to hit a flop when i'm calling a shove with AJs and they're shoving ATC. I'll chalk that up to variance along with losing a lot of hands where i have them crushed.
My point is, I feel like I'm calling shoves much more than I'm shoving. If that makes sense, I'm making more borderline calls, than I am making borderlin shoves. Granted, i'd say 90% of the time, when i make a somewhat borderline call, i'm ahead. I feel like maybe my shoving range is too tight when we're late in sngs.
I recently moved to 16s from 6.50s and I've been playing a lot with jlewis10748. This dude runs like a god against me, but i've noticed that he and a lot of other regulars shove extremely light.
For my stats, since July, I'm ITM about 38% of the time, which is around 2% less than my typical ITM %. During January to June, i bubbled (4th or 5th) 21% of the time. in the last 2 months, i've bubbled 26% of the time, which is a HUGE difference IMO.
Can I chalk this whole run up to variance/sample size or do I need to sharpen my skills on shoving ranges? I mean, I watch PXF sng vids pretty often and I dont see my play as being much different from beanmo.
As of now, my plan is to go from 20 tabling, back to 6 tabling for a week or so.
