Playing Micros without stats
I have been playing the micros (2nl, 5nl, and before i had to move back down to 5nl - 10nl) and i started with £7 and have made it up to £100 over the last year or two which i think is not that bad, but i really would have hoped for better. The main reason i made my first £100 was from playing off starter bonuses and the missions at partypoker
. Now i have completed all the missions, i have to play serious grinding poker and i have got up to £200 in a week, then grinded it back down to £100, as i just played the same strategy the whole time but it only depends on the cards i get.
Now the game i usually play is fastforward at partypoker and my strategy is tight aggressive and i look for thin value spots, however i play without any stats at all, and on fastforward you cant make any solid notes on players as the come and go so quickly. So the times that i dont have a good hand and i take the lead preflop, i am consistently losing money when i continue on an uncoordinated flop, get called and i always just check it down to save losing money.
I open UTG with a-ks and get called by the button.
Flop comes j-7-3 rainbow without my suit.
I bet 2/3 the pot and the button calls.
The turn comes a blank. WHAT DO I DO??? this situation occurs so unbelievably often that it really has a big effect on me making money leaving me breaking-even losing for the session. Without any stats like pokertracker, i dont know how often he folds to turn bets etc.
Also i struggle pre-flop against unknowns with hands like a-q when they open and i dont know how often theyre raising, and on the flop i dont know how often theyre continuing.
And without knowing these things i really struggle making money, apart from the times when im on a upswing when people just shove into me when i have aces or with my opponent getting his stack in when i have quads.
Does anyone have any suggestions what to do? BUYING A SOFTWARE IS NOT AN OPTION DONT ASK WHY I JUST AM NOT GETTING ONE.
