But the metagame between regs in DON's becomes so complex after awhile it's pretty interesting. Anyway this is a pretty simple thought on it, I've seen you get advice from emit who has an immense amount of experience in DON's, so if he keeps giving you free info def take notes!
Emit has worked wonders for my game He always gives spot on and thorough advice that is very helpful. Ever since I read the advice he gave me roughly a week ago, I have attempted to steal just over 46%% of the time with nearly 75% success, its amazing how often it works. I have also had over 55% in the money after 192 games and going 3/12 yesterday. I am tinkering with the steal sizing against the people who call fairly often, so hopefully that will bring up my steal % as well. My fold to steal % is just over 90 though and 3bet steal at about 6%. How do these numbers seem, to me they seem low, especially since people are going to be stealing around 50% of the time.
