Moving up like a Spaz (SGT RJ Video Response)
January 16, 2013 - 02:56
Like everyone, I'm trying to move up.
I take a stab every day and if its successful I proceed, if not I move back down again.
My embarrassing problem is, every time I attempt to move up I start spazzing out like a school boy on his first date, spewing chips everywhere and thinking 83o is pocket Aces.
Can someone please help me, I feel so pathetic.

Find the answer yourself. I
Find the answer yourself.
I am not makeing fun of you or the likes, but until you really and seriously realize what you do and that it is wrong, noone can prevent you from repeating the same mistake over and over again while playing.

SGT RJ Responds With a Video

I don't get why you would
I don't get why you would release this video as a response to OPs problem. Ryan, I honestly to god, don't get it.
1) She is not talking about HU SNG, otherwise the whole "thinking in BB" speaks would not happen
2) She does not know if OP did multitable like as ever, did she?
3) The advice is totaly general and has no connection with the problem of OP. OP is not afraid to invest money. He does not treat AA like 83o and fold it, because he is money scared but instead he spews around too much. How are things like "most player are scared when they move up because they think in BB" helping OP? Not at all you think? Damn right you are.
Sorry, you know I usually love your free videos but if there is - for me - one gain from this package, then this clearly is to answer a question that bothered me for quite some time: "should I buy her video pack"?

Thanks for the response. -
Thanks for the response.
- Scared does not always mean you play weak or tight though. When people experience fear, they do all sorts of irrational things. Spewing chips and not performing your best can certainly go along with fear.
- The video response was meant to be applicable to players asking similar questions as well. I perhaps should've conveyed this better, but I told Nicole "a user on the forum is having some issues spazzing out when moving up in stakes, could you give him some advice on moving up?" She decided to just do a video about moving up and I posted it in here.
- You can replace BB with buyins in most cases and it remains very relevant.
- Her video pack is not meant for HUSNGs only, it is applicable to any player struggling with tilt control.
I know the emotional part of most of us wants the 1, 2, 3 approach, but to get value out of some videos or answers you need to think outside of the box and not employ such stringent and narrow interpretations of advice.

shot takeing ?
what about free roll shot taking. like if im rolled for 25nl i double up a buy in. take it to 50 nl rinse and repeat. obv if you make it up a few levels it then turns into a big % or your new roll. is this a +ev way of shot taking? since you can make a good amount if you run good and never have to lose more than 1 bi of your current stake.

Hi darth wager, What you
Hi darth wager,
What you describe is called reverse martingaling, named after regular martingaling, where you move up when you lose to try to win back what you lost. I'd strongly recommend instead at each individual new bankroll state, you evaluate and say, "am I rolled to play 25nl?", "am I rolled to play 50nl?", "am I rolled to play 100nl?", and ignore what's happened in the recent past. Let's say you're playing 50nl and have $2000. That's 40BI which is shallow. But if you win $50 and move up, now you have $2050 playing $100. If you win again, you have $2150 playing $200, then $2350 playing $400, then $2750 playing $1kNL. Would you ever play 1kNL on a bankroll of less than 3 buy-ins?
In general, in gambling, you want to ignore all the gains and sunk costs that have happened recently, and focus on whether the next bet is a good one to make based on your current conditions.
