      Hello haines21,

      We can't put him on only 1 hand here anyways. :) While he could have a lot worse hands as Ax we can't really do much. I am also going broke.

      And how to beat it? Well, if you can't beat it then most likely you have enough of leaks not to beat it. And I doubt it's only the micros, if you don't beat the micros then it will be much more difficult to beat higher limits. It's not like there people respect your raise. :) There will be a lot more reg-type of players who will crush you. Before moving up we need to fix our leaks and be sure that we beat the limits. Ask yourself rather how much you have done to get better? For example, do you invest enough of time analyzing sessions? What kind of sample size do you have?

      Best Regards.

      Hi Veriz,

      Hopefully you reply to replies :)

      Anyway, i have a sample size of 4k hands, BB/100 of 11.56 overall, but only 6.97 @ NL.04 and 35.82 bb/100 @ NL .10

      Maybe im much better at playing NL.10? But im not really rolled for it.

      As for analyzing i do it after every game and work through all the articles here. One problem i think i have is overplaying a situation, and expecting the oponent to be a thinking, thus making over complicated decisions.

      EDIT: Also veriz, i am about to sign up to the beginers course! I see you personally host the live coachings, i am wondering if i have missed the opening coaching sessions or if i can just join in on the 27th March one and pick up there? What would you advise?

      4k hands is way too low sample to speak sbout something like bb/100 and stuff. You'd need a uch bigger sample to determine if ur a winning player... at least 50-100K hands.

      But looks like ur on the right track. Just keep it up and dont try to beat a level in 4K hands :P ... if u beat it in 30-40K hands, its still good i think ;)

      Your hand sample is definitely very small, you will face a lot of swings coming up and prepare for it. Might run really bad, might run really good, might run break-even. That's just poker and always will be and we have to adjust to it.

      And definitely if you ain't rolled for NL10 then never play it! BRM is the ABC for poker!

      Nah, you didn't miss the opening of the coachings, you can practically join whenever you want. :)
