Re: the first post
Thing is though there are times when I may not be pushing hard I may even check/raise him or whatever ya know and yet hes still reckons his A-3 is good it goes to show down cause I am an agressive player and 'big ball' if you call it and at times when I'm doing this i.e semi bluffing/overplaying is when I'm at a time when I need to keep FE but not getting the cards to do so..
It just seems hard when the whole game I've built a TAG image anytime someone sheriffs me I have the nuts or whatever ya know they all see that, but for some reason when blinds get high I mean I may raise up to 4 or even 5bb UTG when blinds are 100/200, check or bet accordingly from there but can't push someone off a person who called in SB with ace 4 etc..
Btw I know its not a bad beat if theres a ace on the board and you have middle pair, but yeah I could give you a truckload of instances on where bad beats have occured..
I mean you get 3bet, 4bet pf or what not when you have KK or something and someone still insists that his pocket 4s are good, pushes you all in, naturally you call, who wouldn't and he sucks out on you.
And the suckouts I'm referring to is just people who have no regards to position, you could know who the fish are, make an absurd raise 6-7 BB plus (we're talking late game here too) and they call with 6-7 suited UTG I mean wtf..
re; second post
Yeah your bang on with what your saying.. and yeah noted.. I think the reason why I have difficulty surpassing them at the moment is cause I could have 5-10 games plus where yeah there mght be 1 or 2 fish but rest is respectable play, then following that, have a continuous string of games where people play like bingo and I'm forced to go in my shell and not play my natural game..... yeah I suppose you could argue that one should adjust accordingly maybe I am getting it.. slowly.. considering I've been breaking even in the same predicament and its only a matter of time till I get a positive ROI perhaps who knows.
i mean my ROI in 20 games is 60% its my MTT where my ROI suffers and if I'm in a strong position to cash, continuous suck outs one hand after another occur and then leave me to play more 'gambling' as I'm now SS..
I've been using PT and since then things have been looking up, but yeah I seriously wanna become a decent player and just frustrating how I can't cross over the first hurdle but it seems I'm getting there..
