I have been trying out the Poker Tracker trial and have about 6 days left on it, so I would love someone to help me make some sense of it and help me feel comfortable with the HUD before I spend money on it. As well as looking into some of my stats to help me get the mind set needed to properly analyse my game.
Besides that I am just looking for general advice to help my game out, and to turn me from my current break even (or slightly losing) game, to being a winning 2NL player. I have read a couple of books so far (Harrington on Hold'em, and "How to beat Sit-&-Go tournaments"), and looked through a lot of forum posts on this site, so I feel I have a decent grasp of most terms and a high level view of the various concepts (basic concepts that is - position, paying attention to opponents, tight vs loose aggressive play etc).
If anyone is willing to sweat me, I would really appreciate it. Best time for me would be 8:30pm my time (I am in Mountain time) tomorrow night (May 13th), so that would be about 10:30pm Eastern time. I am of course flexible in that time if someone is willing but time does not suit.
Also, if you are willing to do this, and have some suggestions of what I should read up on before then, please let me know. Particular threads or a website or 2. I won't be able to view videos or practice concepts before then though as I will have to do it from work.
Why do you need to be sweated when you made this post in the donk quest challenge?? I thought you already have a winning formula ?
"BFW, don't listen to these guys on this thread, they obviously don't know what they are talking about. YOu have seen the results yourself and your method is obviously flawless. I think you should put some time into writing a poker book. There is big money in poker books
and they all basically say the same thing "Play premium hands, Position is important, etc", the market is wide open for a book on your winning strategy, so how can you go wrong. I think a good name for your book could be "How to go from $0 - $10,000 without worrying about the cards you hold".
All of these so called "good players" that keep making snide posts your way only manage to pull in a measley 10 - 30 BB/100 hands (I think that is the range they aim for). YOur strategy is netting you 100BB each hand, I know the one I would prefer.
Keep up the good work and ignore all of these nay-sayers. When you get the first chapters of the books done, I would love it if you posted them in the forums here for me to read through and learn from. I promise to buy the book when it is published (I will put a little aside from my first 10K that I make using your strategy)."
