I have now come close to quintupling my original deposit at Carbon doing nothing but playing straight forward poker, with the occasional loosening up in late position. Most observant people would probably be able to read me like a book, but I still win...
That should give you an idea of the type of players at the bottom stakes.
Thanks. I resumed doing that yesterday, playing very tight EP, c-betting 90% of the time, folding AQ vs a rasied pot, not trying to be tricky with AA, playing AK properly. Folding single pairs to a re-raise when OOP without a good read and mixing in a few bluffs on the turn and river.
Result over approx 250 hands = 160bb profit. Obviously I've been running good and have been at some soft tables- very little 3 betting and was able to get AI w/ AA vs QQ but it feels good to be back.
