      Hi,

      I started one month ago played on FT with 50 Dollars. I don't know PS. I play as fish and go down on 20 dollars. Then I registered here and started play SSS NL10. I played about 2000 hands and still on 20 dollars. But yesterday I catch 5 big bad beats and go down on 10 dollars. I played Take 2. Today I will clear 5 dollars and may be 5 dollars bonus deposit and will be on 20 dollars again. And on Sunday I hope that I clear Take2 20 dollars. Then I would be on 40 dollars. What now? Change strategy today on MSS and go down on limits NL2 ??? Or still play SSS NL10 ??

      Thanks

      Hey mate,

      Welcome since I have never spoke to you before today :)

      You're English is fine btw no worries, I have been to Bratislava before not a bad place.

      You should play on NL2 tables really given your BR (Bank Roll). Not to worry too much, you can get it back up to a healthy amount, my BR has scraped the barrel at $11 a few times after bad swings but it's perfectly possible to grind your way back up!

      Are you using the hand evalutaions and checking out MSS articles? There is plenty of content to help you and posting in the forums can be useful also.

      Thanks AKM for your opinion. I read and reread all articles here. On videos I don't have enough free time. I will play MSS NL2 for now very tight and passive while my bankroll go up.

      Hi,

      Don´t get me wrong, but passive play will lead you to the hell. According to MSS you will be kinda passive preflop (while waiting for strong starting hand + position), but use that time to make reads on villains at your table(s), make notes for further usage, because if you´ll be too passive postflop, you´ll lose many hands you could win if you were agressive enough.
      Use your cards and also your position to show agressivity postflop. I don´t say you to bet every flop in every position, I just say that there will be a lot of situations you will be able to win only if you´ll notice weakness in villain´s game and you´ll show agressivity. Don´t be afraid or don´t play poker. ;)

      btw Bratislava is wonderful place (nothing compares to Prague ofc)...greetings from Czech rep :f_cool:

      Cheers,
      Ondra

      Thanks you to your advice.
      After yesterday when I catch 5 bad beats I don't have enough courage to play aggressively but I try it. I play poker only 2 months and 1 month SSS but I have more time shame as luck. Only one game was fantastic. I play MTT freeroll 770 players on PS and 90 percent hands I played I win. And I finished on 3 position and win 10 dollars. But after this I have more shame as luck. If is not TAKE 2 action on FT I don't play 3 days and study but now I want to clear 25 dollars. Please cross fingers to me.

      Thanks

      Great stuff - slowly but surely ;) Next time I go to Bratislava then you can show me around, I went to the Night Club underneath the castle, but I just felt there was not much site seeing and the atmosphere was not the best to interact with, also I don't speak slovak lol

      I am going to grind some now having just got home from work :f_cool:
