The moving up checksheet, any opinions?
Ok so I am looking to move up. I might as well have a punt at it, would love to make a little extra cash, and I am struggling to get motivated to grind 4nl right now, I think having been there is causing this. Of course I have no issue with going back there, should my next plan not go as I hope it will.
Have been playing 4nl for a good while, started with £25 (lost it once) I am now at about £1240 having withdrawn about £1500 along the way.
I have noticed 10nl is a total nit fest pretty much 24/7 and am not that good or comfortable at using a more aggro game to beat nits.
I have played a bit, and observed a lot of 20nl and the tables are so much looser, it seems that the people who want to gamble play here.
I have been thinking about my route to beating 20nl long term, below is the list I have come up with, I have put starts near a couple as I think they are the most important.
I will be starting by playing 2 tables.
Avoid confrontations (or at least oop) with winning regs until I am comfortable at this level.
Table select, always check the lobby to see if there are even softer tables
Seat select, ie whenever possible move seats to get position on weak players that I think I can own.
Play very tight and ABC as I think this style works vs loose gamblers.
Start my own tables more often, as regs are usually seated and on waiting lists for long periods of time so dont notice, and the rec players often want to get seated asap without waiting)
Position is everything *
Dont bluff, as people just dont use the fold button
Therefore we make money value betting
Only play when mentally/physically ready (ie not tired or stressed/angry) *
Only play when there are no distractions (The missus is totally
incapable of being quiet for more than about 1 minute) *
Play it for the long term, short term variance doesnt matter
Only loosen up on button, but shut down if I have no equity post flop
Use the extra time from playing less tables to make more detailed notes
Watch more training videos and try to understand the points raised
