You get what you ask for?
The other day I made the decision to stay at .01/.02 instead of moving up to .02/.05. My plan is to work on my confidence and play a few of the guys that I have been having some challenges with so that when I move up I've already minimized the learning curve.
Well it seems I got my wish. This guy (to me) seemed like a pretty solid player had been 3 betting well, was picking his spots, and was making it difficult for me to extract any money out of him. I would consider him TAG.
Anyway have a look at the hand I've posted. Could I have played it any other way?
Thanks in advance
