Success in $0.02/$0.04 General Strategy Help
So I have played a lot of play money poker and watched lots of TV and read quite a far bit and finally decided to make the plunge, I'm an intelligent person with a good grasp of maths and odds
and believe I'll be able to make a little bit of money at least from all the calling stations you tend to find at lower limits.
I deposited $25 to play at $0.02/$0.04 (the lowest on empire poker). Have played 325 hands and am currently losing 22 bb/hour!!!! This is due to a few pots I have arsed up and lost a few dollars in. I know this isnt enough hands to make a true representation of my play yet but I'm interested in how to improve my game.
I think a few times I tried to be too clever, and I need to remind myself this isnt the WSOP
and I should only be playing premium hands against calling stations and take the profit thats there, and should be folding anything where I think I haven't got the best hand.
Looking at the summary on poker tracker, looks like 38% are winners 61% losers, I'm pretty sure I should be good enough to get in the top 25% at least when you consider the bad play regularly seen on these tables.
Also, I barely find raising at the flop for information worth while on these tables when you are not confident about your hand, it seems often you get a blind call and it does not help you instead of a fold or a raise to tell you where you stand. Am I being arrogant and not giving these players as much respect as they deserve? Or the opposite, would love to hear from some of you experienced low stakes players.
I tend to be posting quite a lot of these forums for advice and such on my play. Please give your thoughts on my strategy and any general advice anyone has for these low limits, thank you.
