Why do I suck at poker?
I can't figure out what it is I need to learn or what bad habits I've picked up from playing online for "fake" money.
I am extremely profitable when playing for fake money. I believe it's due to the fact that a lot of people there are much less experienced.
When playing for real money
. I have a couple of set rules.
-I play with the largest buy in possible $5.00 on .02-.05c games. (6table)
-I play a lot tighter when out of position
-I tend to play premium hands only other than when I get suited connected cards. (I've watched Tom Dwan have a lot of success doing so.)
-I don't overbet, I play 3x the pot +1 for every limper.
-I try and get an opponents hand range dependent upon how passive or aggressive they've been playing.
-I know how to fold and I do so without pride when I don't have a good amount of outs.
What else do I need to learn? I want to be profitable, even if it's just a tiny bit. I've been watching poker after dark like no other. Also I've found that I'm typically better at sitNgoes than a cash game.
Someone help, I've lost $60 dollars thus far, not including the alcohol I have to drink after to cheer myself up. I've been playing poker for about 3 weeks.
