I think the problem I am facing is that I read an awful lot on poker, but THB there really isn't a decent book aimed at $10 NL.
The books available are probably aimed at much higher stakes.. so I read the theory and think..'yeah that seems logical' and then end up over-complicating my game.. which really doesn't need to be that complicated.
I guess the thing is that for someone looking back at $10 NL they see it as being so easy and really cant understand the desire to make it more complicated than it needs to be.
However for the likes of myself for whom $10 NL is the most advanced thing I have played so far.. Its difficult to guage if I am playing it correctly or not... If I am doing enough, too little or too much.
SC & SG are fine to have in your range. Just make sure there in late postion where u can try to steal the blinds with them and when called u will both have postion and a hand that is unlikly to be dominated.
I also read a lot of poker books
and i also play 10NL and i agree most of the stuff out there is written for higher stacks where your playing against atleast a litle competened villains.
The problem with decepetion at 10NL is most villains are only using level 0 thinking and using level 2-3 thinking against them is useless cause they arnt puting u on a range but only looking at there own cards.
So to beat a level 0 villain u should be thinking on level 1,no need to try higher.
