Will prolly give Carbon another run eventually when I find a card to deposit on the site with.. Overall I think the only options I have in America are Bovada and Carbon because of their superior MTTs and SNGS... I have been taking a ton more time lately just reviewing other peoples hands and trying to help them on plays in situations I sometimes get stuck in it.. My poker lingo isnt the best, but I would say my general knowledge of the game is very high... Thanks for the advice and look forward to reading more of your general insights on the game + help on advancing through the downswings..
Put your ego aside. Just deposit more and continue playing, as long as your learning from your mistakes and studying/reading watching videos ... you should be improving?
Doesn't mean you will see improvements overnight. Things are tougher these days than say 8 years ago. Just need patience and even more determination.
Just make sure your decisions are based on what you think is what is best to make YOU a better player. Not what others think sir.
Sometimes playing a lot and losing isn't great for the ego and makes you feel bad, but if you can admit your just not that good and want to learn more of the game. Well play harder and learn new weapons along the way.
Remember also when learning new weapons... What has worked for you overall? What could be making your game downwards?
A couple things you might want to remember when trying to improve.
Focus on best games to play.
Table selection: Find the fish
Learn to identify the regs weaknesses
such as 3bet calling too much. Folding too much. playing too tight, playing too loose.
Arr you get the point. But also make sure your not getting exploited.
Calling too many 3bets (It's okay to drop marginal or small pocket pairs OOP KJ,KQ,AQ tricky hands OOP ) Some of these tricky hands you can turn into your 4bet bluffing range. You'll be surprised how often the very tight players will fold and if they call or re-raise u can sneek out ez pz.
playing too loose in the blinds (Use to be a big leak in my game)
Enjoy and keep at it bud! ... who cares if you win or lose, just work on improving as a player, cancel the bad things in ur game and hope it comes together. It won't by not playing.
