wish i could get my hud working- which do you use btw?
My biggest leak (i think) is being stolen from - at least by many of the good CC regs, so my aggression has gone up some, my balls dropped some, but this is the good info to actually counter and profit from their loose aggression/steals
for a new member you are bringing much to the forum, hope you stick around, and see you in the next league too (you mostly a cash player tho??)
will be chattin with you again soon
I use hem 1.
I dont think its a leak folding too often to steals. The main reason is at the micros, players arent taking advantage of that as often as they should be. Also a lot of struggling/breakeven players who try to play back to steals will end up spewing a ton of money. Why? Because they have trouble playing postflop in marginal situations. I think its better to fold too much as a default rather than countering their stealing and losing much more money.
Just wait until you are a confident player from oop and can read hands and board texture a bit better before you attempt to play back at stealers.
When youre ready to start playing back, start with the best hands like big suited broadways and move your way down the hand ranks as you get comfy. Its also very very very important to plan your hand before you attempt to play back and have a strategy postlop. Dont just call AJs from the bb because you know you are ahead of the btns range. There is much more than that. Know what you will do on A and J high flops, know if you are xraising or calling certain flops, what are the villains postflop tendencies, etc.
Thanks for the compliment. Is there another topic i should try to elaborate on?
Ya i want to join the league. I signed up for the man vs woman tourny. I am a 99% cash player so you will have the advantage in the tourny format games.
