Micro FR Group: Isolating Limpers
So first off, if you have just stumbled into this, this idea has came from the Micro FR Study Group
thread. This is something that I thought would be good for all of the micro fr grinders on here to kinda hang out, discuss strategy and ping ideas off each other, hopefully progressing up through the limits together and crushing souls using a foundation of good discussion, sweats, HH review etc etc.
One idea that came up was to use 2p2's concept of the week to stimulate discussion, i'm not trying to make this too 2p2 focused but theres no denying that the COTW is a brilliant resource and micro players should be reading and seeing if they can act on it every week imo.
So, the first point of discussion then will be, Isolating Limpers, a v.good intro to this can be found HERE
. I know that some people have already been going along with this and thats awesome, but lets have some discussion.
Anything that you are struggling with re: this concept?
Do you think that it works at the Micros?
What ranges are you iso'ing with?
What kinda success rates have you been having with it?
What kind of things are you specifically looking for when iso-ing?
Where have you been isoing from?
What needs to be in place for you to iso in earlier positions?
Obv all of this information can be found in that link and just repeated here, but try and give an honest opinion of how you found the reading, and how you have been trying to use it in your game, please feel free to include stats/graphs/hands to show what you mean/try and get some analysis on whether you have even been executing it correctly.
Just a tiny bit from me first, I love iso'ing limpers at the micros, when i first learned about isoing it was one of them AHA moments i feel, for the first time ever I could play my TAG game and feel like a LAGtard bumping it up to 5bb with K8s, i think i understand the concept really well and it shows in my results, when i filter for VPIP=True Pfr=True - facing 1 limper in EP - hero in CO/BTN, my profits over just a 6k hand sample are like 1.5 Bi's, i may be using it incorrectly and be proved wrong here but imo it should be the bread and butter for micro players.
Remember, Everytime you see someone limp in EP just think in your head.......$$KA$$CHING$$!!!
