      Played 67mins of nl2 6max 1 table. I played tight and tried to steal a lot from the limpers so i won .93 thats 46.5bb. It's relatively small but i will get it because i tried to concentrate on improving and play my opponents rather than my cards.

      played 88minutes won $1.39(69.5BB). If you look at the amount it's super small but if I look at it at the Big Blinds portion it's big so I will just look at it at the Blinds per se.

      The session is good. I really focusing on the players on what are their tendencies.

      I just look first pre flop
      -are they limpers then call your raise and fold on a C-bet
      -are they loose pre flop and will fold on a 3-bet or if they call will fold on a C-bet.

      basically that's it and it's working for now will focus more on these first.

      this session i never been in an all in. i win in a small ball strategy by betting pre flop and taking it after the flop. win lots of small pot.

      Are you playing NL2 SH on Stars? Because I can't seem to find anything lower than NL10 on that site, and I could have sworn Stars had NL2 and NL5.

      Yes i play on Stars NL2(SH), we have the same problem. that's why i try play at NL10 which hurts my bankroll good thing i found them.

      just remove the Hold'em game filter on the bottom left side and scroll it downwards you'll find it there .

      *PREFLOP MY READ IS THAT THE UTG+1 IS A WEAK RAISER THEN ALL OF THE CALLERS ARE WEAK CALLERS SO MY PLAY WAS TO SQUEEZ AND HOPEFULLY TO TAKE DOWN THE POT RIGHT THERE

      BUT RUSLANFTW TRIED TO OUTPLAY ME BY 4BETTING ME WHIH MAKE ME THINK OF WHAT HE IS HOLDING. HE IS A REGULAR AND A LITTLE BIT AGGRO

      I DIDN'T PUT HIM IN AA KK QQ CAUSE IF HE GOT THAT, HE WILL DEFINITELY RERAISE RIGHT AWAY AND WILL NOT WAIT FOR ME TO 3BET BEFORE 4BET CONSIDERING A TIGHT TABLE. SO MY READ IS THAT HE GOT AK TO AJ AND MEDIUM PAIRS TO LOW PAIRS SO I SHOVE SO THAT HE CAN STILL FOLD AND I CAN WIN THE POT WITHOUT SHOWDOWN BUT HE CHOSE TO CALL AND I'M AHEAD PRE FLOP.

      Pre-Flop: ($0.03, 6 players) marvinsytan is BB Ts Tc
      1 fold, mofro742 raises to $0.06, RUSLANFTW calls $0.06, 1 fold, Brenne x calls $0.05, marvinsytan raises to $0.32, mofro742 folds, RUSLANFTW raises to $0.80, Brenne x folds, marvinsytan goes all-in $5.47, RUSLANFTW goes all-in $1.21

      Final Pot: $7.60
      RUSLANFTW shows
      9s 9c
      marvinsytan shows a full house, Tens full of Threes
      Ts Tc

      marvinsytan wins $7.40 (net +$1.93)

      RUSLANFTW lost $2.01
      Brenne x lost $0.06

      If i can give you a advice kid?

      Stick to one type of game only. Poker is about learning and trying to learn a lot of stuff at the same time does not work imo.

      loss (-196.5BB)

      played really bad beause i think i tilted when i got it all in w top pair vs an open ended with river card to go. That really hit me cause i keep on calling and hoping on hitting something on the flop then keep on trying to win the pot only to fold on a big bet on a river.

      losing 196.5BB in a 60 min session is really bad i stop already because i know that im not playing my A game.

      i need to control my tilt and focus on what is the best play for every card dealt

      lessons for today
      pick my spots to win small pot and wait for the right timing.
      stop calling and hope to hit something on the flop.

      hope for a good sessions next time

      tnx nathan appreciate it.

      yes your right cause cash game and sng's really a differrent kind of ballgame. but i think i really need to learn this game beause of the time.

      in cash game you can get in and get out anytime so if i got an hour to spare need to play cash game on the other hand if i have lots of time to spare need to play sng's because sng's can boost your bankroll if your running good.

      If the blinds were $1/$2 then we could steal? It is 1.5bb up for graps, helps your winrate a lot. If i didnt steal on nl2 i sure wouldnt have a graph like this:



      And i still think my graph sucks.
