By playing this predictable style (which wins comfortably at 2nl and 5nl) is it true that you will breakeven at 25nl?
I dont understand all the break downs or terms you all use. Correct me if wrong but when you say 25 no limit you mean 10 cent 25 cent 25.00 buy in?
when I played before i played this or higher the most I played online I won money 90%of days.
My style is pretty much wait for hits fold fold fold once I have wins double triple etc.. open a bit more.
I got get the 3 bets or none of that stuff you all talk about. I get some of the strategy and what people would suggest BUT BUT BUT.
If you play the same games you MUST ADAPT you have to have variation not just in hands but betting etc.. or you will get OWNED but the truly skillful.
I true good news? I made it up to 5 - 10 no limit and online and higher live in the past and is always bad players. Is always ways you can progress and grow as a player. Is always people you can trick or manipulate regularly lol.
You have to know there play see their style be able to turn tables on them at right points etc..
I approach ring like a bigger mtt pay in. Is same approach take time get adjusted read people see what they do what hands they play pick on weaknesses set traps take betting habits confuse them etc..
Is hard to do all that from scratch lol or when just starting but if you cannot find fish at your table your the fish Is nothing truer to me then that statement.
Overtime good players would eat you up but how many good players are there at that table at that level daily this is what you have to determine.
I might try this in a few months show you all my hands for a week or so play this style you suggest just to show the results. Be interesting for sure. I still think if you played this style and played truly only the best hands in a weeks time say 40 hours? You would win and be ahead. Not as far as you should have been is called a rock I guess in poker terms lol. They heavy hitters though the good players would beat you so would have to avoid them haha. Yet you could find the guys you could win over and over against just my humble guess.
