Long term profitable plays
Can anyone give some advice on what they have found to be long term profitable plays.
What I mean is that I used to be a very passive player and hardly ever raised preflop. Over the last 12 months I have learnt to raise, cut out limping and am using far more c bets than I did even 6 months ago.
What I find is that if I try something new and it doesn't work the first few times I will stop doing it, though it might work 13 times out of 20 but I have failed 4 times in a row and give up.
The kind of plays I'm talking about are things like check raising, 3 betting, generally putting more pressure on an opponent. Plays that after awhile become natural parts of your game.
