5NL I have noticed playing position alone. Meaning completely stay in position. So don't care if it is AJ off it's a fold. I been playing like that with good results.

Has anyone else tried this? Would like to find out anyone else's thoughts?

Always looking for an accountability buddy?

Being positionally aware is an important skill. Passing on profitable spots because playing OOP is uncomfortable is hurting your winrate though. Folding out the more marginal spots and slowly introducing them back into your play as you get more comfortable would be my advice.

The position in microstakes allows you to stack off fishes with nut hands, and this is vital.

Not exactly, but recently I've tightened up calling ranges a lot to play out of position less thinking on similar lines. Also looked at 3 bet or fold more as a strategy with some hands.

Hands like AJ, AT, KQ, KJ look nice but can be trouble in big pots against strong ranges from early positions or nitty fast fold regs.

There is a line between tightening up and playing scared though, with hands that are rather strong vs some other hands . Need to find that balance, not just refuse to play out of position.

There are plenty of weaker hands that you can definitely dump from your put of position ranges regardless of your seat. Do consider your opponents range though!

Let's say you have AQo in LJ. Everybody folds to you. You dont want to play OOP. Are you going to fold this hand?

Well, whenever the blind touches me, it is the hand that I always have and I know how to defend, your opponent can have countless hands, if I wait for a good hand, the blinds would leave me without money, the only thing you should know is that 60% of the Sometimes your opponent has a straight draw and 40% of the time he has a flush draw, my system works the wrong thing is that whenever I'm up they always knock me down I need to learn to fold. :smile:

Many people lack discipline! By discipline, I mean the following: a player follows simple rules - plays a lot, plays only in a suitable psychological state, regularly works on the game, sticks to ranges and does not go beyond them, even if it gets boring. And he does not do what the expectation cuts: he does not smear himself, does not play on tilt, does not jump to higher limits.

I play 10NL on BOL and there are A LOT of players who will call with any 2 cards with position and it is both difficult and easy to play against them.

When you hit your cards then it's easy money but most times you will miss and it's hard because with AQ/AK type of hand and all you got is two overcards, a lot of times I end up just folding and waiting for a better opportunity.

So yes, position is everything.

Now BOL has made it impossible to know who's sitting at the table before you buy in, so table selection got harder. But they do reveal the players before the blinds, so you can leave if you see players you wanna avoid on your left.

I used to bet any ace from any position but it doesn't really work so well for me. I get 2-3 callers and if I miss flop they just call every street with God knows what. Now I only play ace rag from CO and BTN.

When I just want to have fun,so always play in Online Micro Cash. Although don't like that because can't manage my bankroll properly. Although, with the help of micro-stakes, I was able to hone several strategies of the game that help me win at high rates.

We need to defend our blinds some percentage of the time, and this obviously mean playing out of position. Maybe we can look to depend more by 3-betting, so we sometimes take it down without a flop, but even then there will be times, where we get called and now have to play a bloated put out of position.

So while never particularly fun, playing out of position is a skill, which we need to develop. If we just always fold and give up our blinds, we simply lose to much from those two seats of the table. With that being said overdefending can be even worse, especially if we play poorly postflop. So to some extend it can be ok for beginners to give up on marginal spots from the blinds.

there are still enough chips on this limit that just don't pay attention to things like position and just play any two
