I want to learn HUSNG - this time it's serious
So after losing some money I've decided what I want to play and it will be HUSNG. I have thought about how I play and I've found that these are my biggest problems when it comes to poker:
1. I can't stick to 1 game and see how I do over the long run
2. I tilt easily
3. I can't handle variance
4. I don't apply what I have learnt into my game
5. I'm lazy - which means I don't try to study poker enough and point #4 once again.
I have played every single format possible and I like and do well at Cash HU and MTT's however I do not have the time to spend 8+ hours a day to play a MTT.
The main reason why I have decided to study HUSNG is because it's easy to find a game, they are quick, you only face 1 opponent so in my opinion it's easier to get reads on him/her and exploit them.
I don't have a big enough sample size but I think that I am good enough to beat 1.50$ HUSNG at stars and maybe even 3.50$. All that I do when I play HUSNG is try to find whether my opponent is a TAG, LAG, tight passive, loose passive and I adjust my preflop game (Hardly ever adjust my postflop game, only if I see that my opponent is really tight passive I cbet often).
I didn't have enough motivation to do well but now I think I do have a goal that I would like to achieve which will help me try to exploit my opponents as much as I can.
I signed up to this forum to seek help from you guys in order to improve my game. I'd say my weak points are:
1. Not knowing what type of hands to call from the BB when I face a min raise from villain
2. I'm terrible at hand reading and finding any patterns/tells
3. Never bothered with calculating odds
or expected value
4. I get crushed by LAG's
5. I do not try put villain on any range (don't know how to) and I generally don't think about why my villain is doing what he is doing after the flop.
and a few more points...
Right at this moment all I want to learn is ABC HUSNG strategy. I want to beat the 3.50's and possibly the 7's so that I can get a bankroll big enough to pay for a few training sessions with one of HUSNG.com's pro's.
I don't know if I want to play reg,turbo or hyper turbo sng's (reg are too slow, turbo are ok for me but I would prefer hypers however I find them difficult as stacks are so short)
I will start off by reading mersenneary's ebook.
Once I read the book and watch some vids etc. I will hope to play from 1000 to 2000 HUSNG at 1 stake and the same speed. Is this a big enough sample size to tell me if I am beating the stakes I'm at ?
The point of this thread is to find some advice about how to improve on the weak points of my husng game listed above.
Thanks for reading
