      Hey guys,

      NL5 seems to OK so far. :f_biggrin: Although players there are uber nits, I am managing somehow to exploit them. :f_cool:



      Not much really happens at the tables, standard hands. Either coolers or flopping monsters and then extracting value. Sometimes getting some value with TPTK when guys float with draws.

      If everything goes well for this week, I might start soon taking shots at NL10. :f_grin:

      Fingers crossed. :f_biggrin:

      Some won hands:

      Also want to note that I tried playing 3 Zoom tables, which went very good. I don't feel any pressure on my decision making as I am used to play 2 tables right now, and the third one seems to work OK. I will continue this experiment and see how does it go in the future.

      I will set a daily goal for my self right now.

      :club: play 3k hands per day.
      :club: analyse hands where had difficult decisions in previous session.
      :club: mark hands for analysing.

      Hey Rihard,

      don't worry about that -7BI day! I've had a -11BI day at NL5 about 3 weeks ago and I've managed to finish +10BI for the month mixing NL5 and 10. There is still plenty of fishes NL10 (although I'm playing SH) and there's lots of money to be made.

      Why don't you consider moving to SH tables? Looks like you're having enough knowledge to crush those limits and being at the same table vs the same opponents makes it easier to exploit their weakness. The volume is different but the winrate is way higher as you get many hands against the same people who are mostly quite weak.

      If you're using skype me and some other micro grinders are having a small study group which help us discussing about tough situations.

      Good luck on the tables!
