      they are fish and I don't need good hand to limp, the other hand had AJs and checked.

      I am not that much bad player...

      by the way it is unsuited connector in multi way pot with calling stations, so if I hit two pair three of a kind or straight my implied pots are big, I did, but river killed me.

      if there were A25 let's say I would get allin from him... it's the same as saying Tom Dwan to use starting hand chart.

      and I had position as I were on button.

      Imo your graph looks like your downswing just ended after upswing at start, just keep putting in volume.
      Was u playing NL2 all time?

      yeah I was playing only that, at 1st playing Full handed then I believe somewhere on 5500 hand moved to Short handed.

      well it is a mistake calling preflop no doubt about it, even thoug hyou flop two pair its about a weak a two pair as you will ever get and once the board pairs on the river you aren't even beating a five in the villains hand.

      However i agree that once you do flop two pair your betting for value was good, you just have to hate your life when the it pairs on the river but these things happen, fairly regularly! But if your making the right decisions often enough it will even out over the course of a lot of volume and you will come out with a steady win rate!

      yeah I know it happens, but not regulary, allmost allways... at least for now.

      thought it would be ok to play unsuited connectors on familly pot against fish, on button. dunno...

      You will not flop two pair or better often enough to play trash hands.

      well, I gues you are right. I will stop calling after limpers on button with unsuited connectors.

      at what limit are you playing? I mean it have differences with NL2 so a bit different game over here

      managed to end this session with profit.

      really strange that I hit set really rarely and opponents hit it kidna often.

      Played really bad today, I gues ihufa is right.

      I gues I just suck, :f_cool:

      @Saruniks: I'm not a cash game player :D You can limp with higher offsuited connectors, like 98o after limpers, but 34o is just too bad, there are only two worse hands lol, 42o and 32o :D

      well yeah, I will do what I can, I were silver, were watching videos, reading articles, now I have small bankroll on titan poker which is not tracked to poker strategy, I wish I haven't cashed out my money from party poker.

      ps: I see it kinda hard to play on titan poker, I saw my sister playing on FTP and it looked like if I were playing there I would make profit easily at least on NL2.

      No much I can do, I will practice I think, that's all.


      I can't even make profit with KK for some strange reason had it 42 times and made 0.06$ profit combined.

      thanks for helping, yeah about downswing, it is not like I play with those cards, I just get busted by higher flushes and more, it seems everytime I get nuts I get busted.
