      Hey guys, I went a NLSH Grinder, and now i'll start my road to FLHU high stakes nosebleeds.

      Actually, i'm playing FLHU $0.10/$0.20 at iPoker. I'm a brazilian guy with 19 years old, who dreams of being a poker pro.

      My bankroll gerenciament will be very simple: At least $1/$2, i'll need have 700BB's. For $2/$4, $3/$6 and $5/$10, i'll need 1000BB's. After these stakes, i think 1500BB it's okay.

      I know that this goal is very harder, and i know it may take 8 years for i arrive at $500/$1000.

      Wish me lucky for find the most fishs possible.

      You both played that hand incredibly bad.
      Betsizing OTF is just not good.

      Hi!

      I would recommend to play mostly 3-and-more-handed until 3/6. The reason is that the rake is really really high when playing HU. I don't say it's unbeatable but I think 3-6max is more profitable. Even at 1/2 HU the rake was like 6BB/100 (on 888).

      When playing just microstakes HU you have to play big big fishes only or the rake will kill you. Interesting to see how it goes for you, I do believe it's possible to beat it but haven't seen anybody actually trying to do this!

      When you already have some hands, it would be nice to know what the rake is at these limits.

      Tavi, thx for the post.

      U are one of my inspirations.

      I think the rake it's so high, but with 60% rakeback and the big fishs that iPoker have, i can beat these micro stakes.

      Well, i'll test. If i lose for rake, i'll start play 6-max.

      IMO u should at the very least play NLHE, if not PLO

      every FL player I know is switching to PLO these days (cos they dont want to play another "dying game" which is NLHE). I don't think it's wise to switch to a dying game where everyone is just camping in the lobby. NLHE isn't that dead for ring games but HU games are all about camping for fish. I believe HU is even worse for FL.

      gl though, if u still choose to continue on ur journey

      @mbml, i hate PLO games...

      i liked more FLHU than NLHU...

      I'll try play some hands for analise the rake paid, i think that's possible be a small winner and normal winner with rakeback.

      Thanks all for reading this!!!
