re: Poker & choosing 2NL games?
Ok so when I said table selection at 2NL I had a good reason for it.
The reason I think it's "lol" is that if you're playing 2NL you have alot bigger problems than worrying about how to best table select. I understand table selection is an important skill, but really it should not be your biggest concern until you get to higher limits. For one thing, basically every player at 2NL is a fish so there really is no "tough tables".
So my suggestion for anyone at 2NL"
1. STUDY, STUDY, STUDY, STUDY!
- Analyze your hands, analyze different situations that come up frequently, and focus on getting good at teh pokerz. Because even if you are a great table selector, if you suck at poker it really doesn't matter once you get to higher limits.
2. Forget table selecting, just fire up a bunch of tables and win MONEY!
- Your goal for 2NL should be getting out of there FAST! I see people on this forum grinding like 200k hands at 2NL and I'm like WTF!
Ok so in summary....
[x] Study hard so you can get out of 2NL fast
[ ] Table selecting is important at 2NL
[x] 2NL is easy and a monkey could probably beat it
One last note....As Frank said, IF you are table selecting (at higher limits) your position relative to certain players is much more important than table averages etc.
