very good question. i can only afford 1 buyin.
im finding that Im being called by junk by 3 players in the hope of beating the kinds of hands i raise with.
the first 2 months I won £400 from a weekly buyin of £20. Ive not had a winning session for 4 months - the past 4 weeks ive been felted by a 3 outer on the river after turning top 2, Q2 calling my shove with 9s and hitting a queen, my flopped 2 pair beaten by a turned str8 and a flopped straight beating my runner-runner trip aces. (I had AK and the villian called my 5x raise with 67o OOP and flopped a str8). when youre playing so few hands that hurts.
im not getting the hands and when i do my opponents have a bigger hand. getting them to fold is impossible - every pot is 4 handed and im the only one who raises pre. I can even pinpoint the hand my luck changed all those months ago.
Its really doing my head in.
