kaboom got it right.
Try this for a month or so. It helped me to understand my game a whole lot. Do it with play money, I'd suggest the 10K sng's at fulltilt.
Only fold or raise. Just the act of training yourself not to limp or call, will improve your game. After the month, you'll come back to limping and calling, but you will be doing it with a new reason as to just what you are doing.
UTG only bet the monsters, AA,KK, AK, QQ, JJ. Be real ready to give up the QQ and below. ONLY 3BB raises here! Min Raises only very late in the tourneys when the blinds are huge. Never limp UTG PF !!!!!
UTG+1,2 A bit looser. Include connectors, mid PP's. ON OCCASION, raise big with babies 22,33,44,55. Otherwise fold em.
Mid position, 50% of the time or less, raise with upper mid connectors or pairs.
Late position, learn to steal. You can't steal every orbit, but 20-30% of the time you can.
At max you should only be seeing maybe 10-15% of the flops. Remember this is an exercise in self control.
Your results during this exercise are totally unimportant. What you want to be learning is;
1 to control that limp reflex
2 how powerful a raise really is
3 how powerful a reraise really is.
After a month, take a week off from playing any games at all. Fine to come here and reread articles, or chat it up, but no games for that week.
When you get back to playing, at whatever you want, you will have naturally evolved your game.
Then come tell me what a genius I am, and ask me why I am not filthy rich from my poker winnings....Or come tell me I am a total ass, and don't know didily or didy either.
