Please comment my strategy...
Here's my baseline strategy, the one I intend to take to the money tables starting tonight. Keep in mind I'll be playing .01/.02 tables and $1 SNGs.
What I'm defining is my baseline. I take notes of the players usual raising hands and habits so everything is usualy adjusted to the table and players but this is what I'm thinking early on to keep me disciplined.
Even with play-money I only play TT+ and AK AQ. I always c-bet in early position, usually half-pot. If there's a draw, I'll bet even more. If I get a re-raise I take my time to look at the table and go from there. Very rarely I get to showdown from early position. Usually someone folds. I play it like this because I want to run the betting when in early position.
If there's a raise before me I act like in early position, if not I'll raise with blackjack
hands and up. This is where I struggle more. If nothing scares me in the flop, I'm taking control of the betting, if it does scare me, I'm usualy not so confident of where I am. Maybe I have to make a habit of just c-betting in mid position.
Pretty much like mid position but without getting scared. I have everyone speaking first so I can sit back and fold or apply pressure. I raise from late position if I there's no previous raise and I have two cards with value above 8. If there's limping in all around the table I'll join with very speculative hands like suited Ax or connectors, Q7 and J6 (thank you Little Green Book!).
I don't think I can even explain how I play from the blinds. Depends on who is the first bettor, if there's raises and re-raises, if someone is trying to steal me often. I tend to pressure the other blind (again depending on what's going on).
One thing that is absolutely vital to me is table image. Everytime I felt that things didn't work out for me was when no one really took my bets seriously. So I usually prefer to not play, see others playing and wait for a big hand to make my presence noted and then start pressuring. It's like I start nitty and then go tight-aggressive.
If I'm on a drawing hand I'll either get it cheap (or free) or I'll fold. If the table offers a drawing hand and I feel I'm ahead, I'll try to force them out.
If I feel I'm ahead I go for the pot. If I feel I'm way ahead I'll do my best to have the other players betting, sometimes I put low bets to draw them in other times I'll let them take the lead and act like I'm not sure of the current hand. I can't really say I have some sort of techiniques for this, it just happens during one or two hands per hour (which I think it helps because my behavior is somewhat changed). I don't think I always do it the same way, sometimes I use scare cards to slowdown, other times I take more time than usual to do something.
When I'm not really sure, I check the turn and see what other players are doing (I believe I read this from Rob Rounder). It's dangerous but more than often I'll have them folding in the river. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this part though.
When the table shifts, I get really tight until I get a grip of what's going on. Then adjust and resume. I usually adjust a lot of my starting hands to the number of players sitting. The less, the wider is my range.
Oh well this post helped me quite a lot because I wrote what I only have in my mind. What do you all think? What mistakes are obvious? What ranges are incorrect?
And thank you for reading all this.
