The Help Robbie Thread
Right we are going to use this thread to sort out Robbie's game. I will act as his mentor in this process, and other players are welcome to join in. First things first linking him to this thread.
You will find here Cardschats OWN strategy section. Reading some of these articles would be a good place to start. I suggest working your way through them in order.
Ok the mistakes I saw you making at the tables.
1.You limp almost every hand. You should never limp EVER unless you have a really aggro guy behind you ready to act and you want to see a flop with a small pocket pair.
2. You play far too many starting hands. I have a tracking software called pokertracker4 and it tells
me you were playing over 68% of your hands. That is just HUGE. in 6max you want to be looking at playing 25% of your hands or less. For yourself, I would cut it down to even less until you get more experience playing "speculative hands" such as 78suited etc.
3.You need to learn pot odds
, and you should never be calling to hit a flush if you don't have the correct odds to call. Read strategy articles on "pot odds" Also the board had 3 kins on it, that means any pair beats your flush. Don't bet your flush all in on these boards.
4. Calling too much pre flop. If the hand is good enough for a call, is it good enough for a raise?
5. Finally you should look up the importance of "position" at a poker table. Position is THE single biggest factor when sitting at a table.
