Nolan continues this week by moving on up from the micro stakes to the small stake full ring. He discusses adjustments to make including noting the regulars, multi-tabling for you and others, and other differences you'll find between micro and small stakes.
FoxwoodsFiend showed you what it takes to move up through the ranks of shorthanded No Limit. Now Nolan shows you how to do it in full ring games. With guest appearances by Full Ring coaches SoundedSimple, GoldSeraph and bottomset!

The AKs OOP about 17.30, what sort of player or dynamic would you be looking for to make you want to continue with the hand? If you did want to continue OOP in a 3bet pot is the plan always to work out a range to 4b/call or can we call with suited connector or suited broadway type hands with plan to check/jam certain flops.
I always learn something new from your videos. It helps to see that you are comfortable folding AK oop to a 3bet from a tight regular. I have been calling some of the time and hating my options postflop.
I'd like to emulate the way you stay calm and composed while playing- I've noticed moreso in other videos when you lose a hand. Do you have advice for someone who goes on tilt after losing even 2-3 buy-ins other than work with a larger bankroll?
We know I love big bankrolls.
I just play a lot of volume and I think I've seen a lot of bad runs in my time. I tend to have a -20 bi downer every 150k hands or so, even at FR. I think playing other games (specifically HU NLHE or PLO) can desensitize you to money swings a bit.
However, I think the biggest thing is confidence in your game, which unfortunately only comes with time. The more confident I am in my overall ability, the less upset I get when I lose, as naturally I feel better about my opportunities to recover in the near future.
Basically, I think experience is the only thing that will help you become accustomed to tilt/losing etc.
Playing over-rolled I also find helps somewhat.
It's probably worth noting, that I just recently had my first ~20 bi downer at PLO. I noticed I was far more tilted/upset about this than I would have been at NLHE and I can attribute it almost solely to confidence. I'm much more so a newb at PLO than I am at NLHE and I think the aspect of me having to question my play a lot more and not be sure of my ability at PLO has caused me to be more frustrated than I would be in NLHE.
So to beat a dead horse, experience and volume is key in learning how to best deal with tilt.
great episode! However, I wouldn't mind spending the last minutes or so going through sessions stats, what you where running, interesting hands, etc., in your PT/HEM database. Could be a valuable way of ending the episode IMHO. Just an idea.
Edit: Which I now noticed you do/did in other videos, would love to see it in theese series too tho.
I think it is, but obviously is much less of an issue than if you were playing shorthanded.
There are still a few tables here and there that I will reject as I set up. Generally when I decide to mega-table I'll wait list every single full table, then pop open all the tables with an open seat. I'll go through those and any table I consider undesirable I will close out. I re-check the lobby every 15 minutes or so to see if these tables have improved.
You don't always have to do this though.
