I really need to improve my game, any reply would be nice.
Ok time to admit it, I suck at poker but I really want to become a winning player... I read a lot about 6-max (the guide by GT_IE, the one by verneer on 2p2 and the old ryan fee stuff)
The tables are absolutely FULL of whale and loose/passive players so it should be great, however, everytime I take one of their stack, I lose more... a lot more not a long time after...
I play 16/14/4.7 with too much c-bet... 88% and not enough steal 27% on 3.2k hands in 6 max (I know it's a VERY small sample and mostly not valuable but by the time I reach something like 30-40k... I'll be broke... aherm).
I know where I bleed the most money however...
1. When I have a good starting hand but I miss the flop and I c-bet mister 50-80/3/0.5 and he calls, then I let go and lose (Already working on this one)
2. I have something between 88-JJ, KQ or even QJ and I have an overpair or second pair with an A, K or Q on the board vs the same kind of 50-80/3/0.5 and they call... I often find myself not letting go because they're probably calling with the nuts, nothing or a backdoor gutshot straight draw AFAIK... Plus, they're EXTREMELY hard to "range"
3. I c-bet the flop, double barrel the turn and c/f the river (Might be using this too much, even if verneer recommend it in the uStakes...)
4. Those times where I have one pair hands up to trips (not sets) and I raise for value against fish, and they either call or raise (sometimes shoving) and minraise my bet on the turn or river shove and I don't fold since I don't see them on a monster (and 60% they are... the rest of the time it's just a bluff).
So please, oh great gurus of cardschat... should I begin to play ABC poker not trying anything out of line, trying to steal more from tight players (most of the time there is a loose player in the blinds on all 4 tables I sit at). C-bet less and play "fit or fold" ?... I'm really lost and I'd really like not to go broke (still have 90$ but I still lost 10$ in 3.2k hands... which looks like a lot...
It's not a downswing since I'm not often on the "right side" of the odds
when I call... I could fold much more but then, would my play be profitable or I'd get eaten by the blinds ?
Thanks to everyone for their input,
