Hi everybody, to start with I want to tell everybody of my short poker career (3 months)
After a string of heavy losses I have blown up my bankroll to $15 two weeks ago(from about $500) this was due to many things, but mainly bad play. At the time I had around 4000 FPP at stars which I used to enter tournaments that I turned into $T80 and then into real cash $175 in S&G (by my sharkscope
information you would think I'm a decent player ) .
But my main passion is the ring games and so I returned with the $175 to play the 10NL FR games (better BR management and all). I feel my game has improved, especially pre-flop.
My stats would be something like 25/5/0.8 and now are around 20/12/1.8 but my problem now is post flop. I read ChuckT 10k post which helped me work my pre-flop game... especially aggression, people say to be aggressive but it is better said than done.
Practical example: We raise from middle position with 88 and get two callers, lets say the button and the BB. Flop comes AT4 ... what do we do after BB checks? A c-bet is mostly what I do... what if I get called or raised by the button? Do we fold to a raise? Do we call and check call to the river?
Do we fire a second barrel by the turn if it is just a cold call?
Speaking of aggression I've seen people raising and re-raising with just Top pair (decent but not top kicker) is this correct?
I've been stuck for the last 5k hands between $160 and $210 and just can't seem to constantly win (what I win today I'll lose tomorow and then regain the next day). So, winning players... show me how aggression works: when should we be aggressive and when to fold to aggression (even if we have a hand).
