      Hello CandyCane93,

      And welcome to the forums. Hopefully we will see more hands from you and try to find your leaks and fix them. To get your bigger winrate and help you to move up the limits.

      Preflop: I'd raise bigger, 4xBB, therefore $0,08.
      Postflop: For the reason that there is a raise and also a Call, I guess I'd rather just fold my hand there, we are very likely beat there. Also you could CBet a bit smaller, ~$0,20.

      Best regards.

      Hey thanks,

      yh bigger preflop...
      and I was perhaps over aggressive/too keen to play my kings

      It's just i've watched so many players at 2NL betting heavily with draws and small pairs, when I do hit a hand i try to get my money in there, and don't believe that they're holding something valuable.

      i'm playing exclusively 2NL with the starting capital... hoping to hit $100 before moving to 5NL.
      but it does feel long sometimes.
      i'm using the starting hands chart, but i'm not sure if i need to adjust my play seeing as i'm playing the bottom of the micros?

      i'll post some more hands as they come

      thanks again

      Just take as much time as you need. Don't rush! That's the main mistake people start to taking on those limits. Take as many hands you need. You rather are learning on those micros than playing for money. You will start earning the money on later limits.

      Nope, you don't need to adjust. The chat is pretty good for the beginning and learn the basics. You can widen up your range on later limits.
