Experiences of a latecomer
Well, I got to the end of my first month and to be honest I'm astonished at the results so far:
Cash games (FR and 6max, though often not complete tables, only at £0.01/0.02NL): 1791 hands played. £6.37 up. I make that 17.7BB per 100. WTF? Am I playing with desperate fish or have I just got lucky?
MTTs: mixture of small stakes, freerolls
and FPProlls. Played 39. Finished in the money 19 times for profit of £6.88. Second place 8 times but only turned it into a win once.
So I treated myself to two volumes of Harrington's books (Amazon knew precisely when to send me an offer code ), which I guess means I've actually made a loss overall! I know the two areas that have been the most problem so far - firstly playing heads up, I seem to gradually haemorrage chips... secondly, in any situation I'm too tempted to call when I've had a hand that looked promising but failed to improve, and someone jumps into life post-flop. Heart says villain might be bluffing
me, head says if he's honest then I'm well beaten. I've got a pretty tight style, which seems to suit a site where most players at my level are positive maniacs. But I'm definitely going to use up my FPPs and move off TrueMoneyGames - it's awful that there is often only one half-full table in progress at anything less than £1/£2.
So, where do I go from here? Suggestions please!
