      My general advice is to concentrate on ONE game type - either 6max sngs, HU sngs or cash games. And that as a general rule of thumb.
      I'd watch it if its cash.

      I'm a failure, 1 away from gold... Don't look at me!! :D

      EDIT:

      In agreement with dark, basically stick to one field and then start developing your ability to play more tables, once you have a set strategy which is robot like, you'll be able to play a load more hands. Theres definately no harm in finding out what game you're comfortable with whether its cash sng's mtt's etc, but I wouldn't start deviating on a regular basis, and switching from day to day. All the best with your video, good luck with your poker development. Regards, Paul.

      Yeah i really wan't to improve my game overall.
      I'm quite an all round player but i do wan't to work on my HU game more then anything at the moment, simply because i quite often become heads up at the end of SnG's and just don't have the weapons i need to take down 1st, even tho i have took it down a few times.
      I'll be posting a video of either $5 HU or $10 HU soon then ;) thanks alot guys

      I don't want a set strategy. i want to be able to adapt to different situations which arise and make moves depending on what type of player im vs rather then what i hold. :f_grin:

      If you're Playing SSS I'll have a look and post some comments.

      Willing to admit my game is far from perfect though. I ran horribly at NL200 after my 1000 hand stab at NL400 SSS halfway through this month.

      Playing heads up of course, having a set strategy isn't optimal. I'm talking about other games you mentioned :) And within that set strategy, you take into account stats and who you're playing, using the term "set strategy" is probably the wrong term to use, apologies. But a strategy that you're comfortable with and can play profitably, by saying strategy I definately don't mean playing based on your cards, as you start progressing and furthering your game, you'll know the good spots for aggression and the good spots to be passive, theres too many situations in poker and every different situation needs a different thinking process. On a side note, have you decided on which game to play? Wish you good luck! :D Paul.

      EDIT: Heads up it is! It's tough, and it really tests ones patience, so all the best and if you're able to (legalities etc), post up the video and I'm sure many players will be interested. Played quite a lot of heads up myself, but nothing to the extent of some players here, but I'll try and help if I feel what I'm saying is correct ¬_¬. Again, good luck at the tables. All the best, Paul.

      :f_biggrin: Mainly SnG but at the moment i'm playing heads up and i have uploaded some videos (if you look at my first post)

      I want my heads up game to get better so when i do become heads up in SnG's i have a decent chance of winning first :f_biggrin:

      But i am also playing ring games too :D

      You're too quick for me! :D Downloading

      Looking at the 5$ SNG, raising 28o is better than limping it, when playing its either raise or fold, keeping your c-bets the same and always betting the same when you hit the flop or you don't, never check behind unless you have equity to win the hand (if you feel you're behind). Especially at 5$, you want to bet for value.

      Your A5o hand in the BB, raising is fine but when you flat call his limp 3-bet, you're OOP with a weak ace against what is a strange play, it's best just to fold it pre flop, after he limp 3-bets you. However when you called his 3-bet, betting out on that flop is I think standard (correct me if i'm wrong :P ). Paired boards and ace high are always good to barrel on.

      Flopping the nuts, betting out is good play, the pot is small, and you get players to over play their 2 pair etc. Calling his 3-bet is probably the best play, he's the type of player that'll 2nd barrel his bluff or 2 pair, let him spew his chips away :) Min 4-betting isn't advisable :P I think c/r the turn would be a better option, or bet slightly smaller to bluff induce.

      Nice disciplined fold with 3's.

      Your 58o hand, I think either 3-bet folding, or folding is better than flat calling, it does hit his range with the flush draw especially. The blinds are that small, you can pick better spots.

      When playing HU, flat calling 3-bets with weak aces (and the blinds as they are) is -EV in the long term, give him credit (I know its hard) and fold, he'll think he can do 3-bet's pre flop more often and you can punish him later on.

      It's best to bet your gutshots on the flop, if you get min raised you can peel a card off.

      I'm gonna have to bail for a bit, I hope what I'm suggesting is optimal, gonna conclude with saying one thing - POSITION :P
