I realize first off, this sample is probably not big enough to draw any rock solid conclusions, however, feeling deflated and I'm certainly not looking for sympathy, but a point on where to turn would be helpful.
I watched Danza's excellent series on Limit Hold'em called, "The Price is Right", I took notes on each video and during the live play, I would pause the video and say out loud what I would do and most of the time, I was on Danza's page which gave me some confidence. (Great teaching style he has)
I then watched Pygmy Hero's and BBB's awesome series "Elephant Tamer" and again during the live play portion, I tediously paused and said my move, now again most of the time, even in tight spots I was bang on with BBB and Pygmy, I was full of confidence.
I fired up my tables and played 2,800 hands, now right off the bat I dropped 72 bbs, but I felt like I was in control of my game and I actually by hand 2,000 got it back to actually being up 14bbs, but then between hand 2,100ish and 2,800 I dropped 65bbs bbs again, thats a 72 and 65 bb bomber in a small sample?
I felt like I was thinking through my hands, but anyhow...
W$SD%: 60.5 <--- Should be running hot? I must be blowing up somewhere
SB Fold to Steal: 84.2%
BB Fold to Steal: 62.4%
I know my sample sucks, but there has to be something there that indicates why I suck so bad,
I took careful notes on villains and table selected which makes this start more depressing....
I realize I'll be getting a lot of "small sample size comments", just remeber though, just starting out and would rather stop this sinking ship now, but something seems off I guess, I know these swings are standard for "good" players, but when you haven't established that confidence or proven that you are "good", it's tough to weep in the wind I guess....
Do I hang in, or do I just suck donkey nuts at limit?
And if so, whats my next step to improving.... this isn't bbv, just need some help for long-term improvement
Thanks ahead of time for any helpful responses, should mention this is all six max poker
