Ok, I sometimes play 0,02/0,05 zoom 6-max.
After a few losing sessions, just a bit more than 2000 hands, so actually small sample, I decided to check the hands I played (in PT3).
Well, I don’t have to be a genius to find out where I go wrong.
For example, I lost almost $2 with 73s.
How can I lose that much with that trash ?
How can I lose so much with other trashhands ?
Obv...I am one of those spewtards, playing trashhands, chasing flushes or straights where I’m not even close to having the right odds
to do so.
A pretty big leak in my game which I can fix, just after checking my tracker.
So, to become profitable, start checking the hands you played.
You’ll probably find the biggest leaks yourself.
After that you could post hands of which you’re kinda in doubt you played them wrong or not.
That’s not all....also check winning hands.
Try to find out you got enough value outof them.
Check your bet-sizing for example.
Sometimes it’s just little details which could be the difference between being a losing player or being a winning player...and yeah, ZOOM can be fun, but it’s really more fun if you win.
On a sidenote, losing a hand won’t always mean you played it wrong.
For example, so far Aks is a losing hand for me.
Actually that’s just because of 1 hand, where I flopped nut-flush, 1 guy shoved and I happilly called with my flush.
Board paired on the river and villain made a boat.
Not much I can do I think, but a $15 pot didn’t go my way and I ended my session with a small loss instead of a nice profit.
Just unlucky I think....not a mistake, so be it.
And as others said before....try to make notes when you see players do unusual stuff.
Information you have about players could really save you some money (not only in ZOOM but whatever you play).
