Nah nah nannanaa nananaaaaaa â€“ Black Eyed Peas were so much better pre-Fergie.
Anyway, Iâ€™d be interested in getting a bit of feedback from anyone whoâ€™s done the micro to small-stakes run fairly recently, because last night I had another kind of weird session where villians were showing up with random two-pair/ runner runner gutterballs and owning my soul.
Whatâ€™s the one thing that you did that improved your game the most during this period? Specificity is the key; feel free to PM if leaving comments is not your thing.
As an aside, Iâ€™m pretty sure that my winrate against people who donâ€™t know what they are doing fluctuates much more than my winrate against the weak regs who I try abuse just as much. Making it worse is that I think it really affects my thought process, and the result is that I isolate with weaker hands and valuetown myself.
Because I donâ€™t have a lot of time to play, this is really magnified because a couple of these going against me in a session is almost enough to turn a good session into a bad one, whereas if they are going for me it can turn a decent session into a really good one. Thereâ€™s no middle ground really.
As a result, this months graph looks like a funky staircase â€“ flat, followed by mini heater followed by flat, followed by mini heater etc etc.
I looked through HEM last night quickly as well and Iâ€™m significantly negative for both AKo and AQs/AQo which is kinda weird but sorta gels with my feelings that I suck at TPTK and TPGK.
Iâ€™ve been playing around with 3 betting a bit lately and because thereâ€™s not a lot of folding going on in some of the games Iâ€™m playing I feel like Iâ€™m just playing for stacks with TPTK/ overpairs when this is probably not the most mean-variance optimal way to play micros.
Also, if I complete in the SB/ check in the BB and make trips, should I be looking to get stacks in? given that i canâ€™t put people on a range of hands and I often find myself getting outkicked.
So many questions =(
