      The hands I lost most money with




      My Graph even though I am losing with top hands, my bluffs and blind steals are keeping me afloat.




      My Stats



      I know this looks like no major downswing, but this doesn't include the near $100 from the previous week.... I worked so hard too....

      cash games are obviously the way forward! I've had to revert back to FT in these times of trouble, as I get rakeback there, from a previous deal with other people, shame this site wasn't running then, I'd much prefer the bonuses to go here.

      Oh.. ok then :D :D
      Now about the hands you just posted.
      1st one. Minbeting is gross. :tongue:
      Flop: 0,20
      Turn: 0,30/0,40 mood dependant.
      2nd one. wth with that min reraise?
      preflop make it 3x his bet.
      3d one. Do not limp with such hands. raise em up! 4xbb is good.
      flop: bet 3/4pot to protect against fd and at the same time get value.
      It seems you are used to playing limit hold'em too much. ;)

      Just on your stats, you appear to limp too much / raise too rarely. Especially on supermicro you can raise a wider range than that 5.5 / 7 because there are so many idiots calling PFR with suited K/Q-rag hands etc. Build value pots :)

      If people are raising super-wide the correct play isnt to cold call or play tighter (fold more), its to 3-bet / 4-bet wider. AJo becomes a 3-bet hand vs 40/30 villains.

      Heh, they call MUCH worse than that.
