I didnt thing it is illegal to play poker online, its the banks and payment processing that runs into legal trouble, at least thats what I thought. Alls I know is its a pain in the ass to move money within the US right now, which I hope they can clear up soon... Canada
isnt too far away i 'spose=D
HEM is a good program. Make the most out of the trial while you have it.
I understand that mass multitabling and playing a very nitty style can work at the micros. Just putting in mass volume and net peddling is a viable strategy from what I read. The downfall is that it is any easy style to exploit to anyone paying attention to your HUD stats.
If I had a player that was running say 6/8 (VPIP/PFR) over like 200 hands I will mark him as a nit and try to play at tables with him on my left. I can steal his blinds and button repeatedly until he adjusts. It is also easy to put him on a range preflop and play accordingly. Also, it lets you isolate fish while in position more often when you know he is folding most of his hands. Stats like the Preflop3bet% and FoldtoPreFlop3bet% come in handy with players that you have history with, although these stats take longer to become accurate.
If I were you I would stick to a few tables with the HUD and try to play correctly vs each villain according to the stats you get. Keep in mind sample size is everything with statistics, so dont make assumptions based on stats alone until you have a decent sample. Also remember that the later the street the longer the stat takes to become accurate. So, VPIP and PFR dont take nearly as long as say, Check-Raise River %, to become accurate.
Once you feel comfortable with those tables add and you are winning over a decent sample, add another table or two. Dont hesitate to drop tables either...
