re: Poker & My limit holdem troubles
The play at the .50/1 Limit hold em tables is fairly weak and passive, you should play ABC poker, raise with the good hands , if you dont hit and are against a single player, you can continuation bvet, against many players dont even think about it. You might be getting a lot of suckouts , but in the long run this is so good for you it doesnt even matter, i even get happy when they fish suckout on me, cause i know they just lost money and they beatifull thiing is they think they played well and the next time they will play the same way . So it doesnt matter if 4 players limped, then called your raise. When you hit your hand , its gonna pay handsomely like someone mentioned in a post.
You say you cant move to the 1/2 limits, why ? If you are a consistent winner, with i assume you are, then you can move there, you have 150 BB with i think would be enough , although a unprotected bankroll, to be able to play at the 1/2 $ limit hold em table . When i first began to build my bankroll, i only used to have 100 BB of the limit i played , so for the 1/2 i used to have 200 dollars, and i was able to get my bankroll high, a single good hand there can esaily get you 40+ dollars there . Now i play it safer and i usually have 400 to 500 BB for the levels i play because I decided I will never deposit again and i want to keep that bankroll on growing .
Going back to the .50/1 table, keep playing there for some more and dont concentrate on short term losses, try to play atleast 500 to 1000 hands and then see how much money you won/lost. When i sit at those .50/1 tables , i usually sit with 30 and leave with more then 50 after 1000 hands, the play is so bad, you will eventually win in the long run . I know 1000 hands is not a long run, but its a rather long session .
PS : Try to see the flop around 20% of the time , with would be ideal and win atleast 80% or more of the showdowns .
I hope this small post can help you some , if you want PM me. I am not a poker pro, but i consider myself a good enough player to be able to discuss some poker with you. I could watch you play and help out with some word of advice .
