      I consider myself an okay micro limit sng playermaking constant profit up to $5 sng. I decided to play cash games and my results are nothing like my sng results. Ive found that I lose more money than I make from playing pairs, two pairs and high cards, see table


      my graph is also a rubbish shape

      I just cant seem to maintain my profits. Is there anything anyone can see that im doing wrong here and can anyone give me advice on how to improvealong with some articles ot read, thanks

      What limits are you playing and are you playing BSS or SSS?

      Looks like your losing alot of big pots to me.


      Cash games are all about EV where as S&Gs are about surrvival.

      Have you ever posted hands you were unsure about in the hand evaluation forum?

      Since you have 17 posts i assume not, so my advice:

      Post hands! It will improve your game.

      Ok just to make this very short ..You are overvalueing ur 1 pair 2 pair type hands ..You have to fold these hands alot in cash games ..even folding a set is not that uncommen in deeper(400x) cash games. So when you have a 1 pair type hand try use some pot controll

      and remember.
      Small Hand = Small Pot --- Big Hand = Big Pot


      its a good beginers rule of thumb. gl ;)
