re: Poker & Metagame affecting standard plays
I have been playing cards off and on for eight years now, but not since about six months ago did I start to take it seriously and actually put in the time and effort that it takes to go beyond a break even level 2 TAG fish, so please don't judge me. Moving from the .25/.50NLH weekly homegames to the 1/2NLH has been interesting. I love the way that double A put it when he said that over adjusting is worse than not paying attention. I feel like I have been doing far too much over adjusting. I am trying to do things based on what I percieve their range to be and for the people that are not paying attention I would say that I am fairly accurate 70-90 percent of the time depending on how bad they are. HOWEVER. I find myself in those "What should I do now?" kind of scenarios trying to combat the regs too much. Now that we understand that people are taking advantage of certain spots, how do you re take advantage right? I had a losing session at the casino tonight and it was not because I didn't take a couple of level 1 fish to value town, because I did, but because I over adjusted to the a reg that brilliantly and I mean brilliantly un-polarized his range with a LAG!! image.
I found myself in more of the spots than ever tonight because of that BEAST, but at the higher stakes in general. I am definitely losing more money right now then when I did playing a standered TAG game, but when I am in the zone I cash out 3-4 times as much. I was wondering what I should do to make my win rate more consistant? What should I be practicing right now? I greatly respect your level of thought in the game. Reading your article has helped me a lot tonight, as I am not alone in these thoughts. Talk to you soon hopefully.
