This is a discussion on help! my red line is higher than my blue line within the online poker forums, in the Cash Games section; Hi cc community!

I just recently purchased hm2, and its great for reviewing sessions and I love how it keeps track of all your opponents stats as well. I am a student of the game and I'm always watching vids and reading books.
In about all the videos I watch, they talk about how you shouldn't worry about the red line(non-showdown). I like to think I play well, but it feels like I break even just about all the time. Im pretty TAGgy, but I find myself lookin people up more than I should. Im currently playin at the .05-.1NL level. Im just a shade above winning here, but I know Im better than what my stats say.(how many of you have heard that before? and how many of you believe the same thing? lol)
So my question is, What would you do if you were me? Is there any advice on mentally getting past the getting bluffed mindset at the micros? any advice would be appreciated, thanks for your time and I look forward to your responses.

If you are tight aggressive then only strong players will be trying to bluff you. The rest of the crowd will simply fold to your aggression when they do not have you beat. The stronger players will be observing you the same way you are watching them and they will try floating or bluffing you. You should know who these players are and have them marked. When you are in a hand with a strong player that is capable of trying to take the pot away from you even when they have nothing you will need to look them up more often. If you are against an unknown player or a stiff then fold when they say they have you beat. They most likely do. Be suspicious of the right players and look them up. Have them marked and have notes on them. Otherwise fold.
