re: Poker & I feel like I'm not playing poker
thank you all for replys.
Evertongirl, yup, I pay close attention to position,sometimes turning down marginal hands because I'm oop.I don't play speculative hands early on etc. You are right, I'm a passive nit. In a situation like you described, I do c-bet usually. but overall I am a passive nit and I do get bullied out of the hands. it would be better if I could be aggressive nit I guess.
hffjd2000 that's what I was thinking. I try to play lots of hours and because I'm a beginner I thought being breakeven was a good result. I couldn't survive any other gambling game like blackjack
if I put this much our into it.
Olegan163s I want to expand my range but I don't think I'm good enough with the postflop play,so I think I would lose money in the long run. And you are right with the c-bet, on the book small stakes hold em, Ed Miller said just c-bet because on micros they will fold too often. but I just get scared.
Marcwantstowin yup I try to read my opponents,but I do it less successfully when multitabling, but I still try to watch and also mostly make my decisions based on their betting sizes when multitabling. trust me I'm trying to build my bankroll haha, I'm trying to get my bankroll to 100$ so I can move up to 0.02/0.05. the max buy in is 5$ so I figured since you need 20x buy in,you know the math but it will be hard I think,should I move to next stage sooner,maybe with less bankroll say 40$? but that would break the rule of 20x buy in but is it really that important in micros if I'm not playing way over my bankroll? right now I have 17$. and I'm looking to the threads,I usually read the hand analysis.
thank you all for the replys.
