      I'm winning lots of small pots, but losing all the big ones.

      Whenever i make a value bet on the flop, more often than not, everyone folds.

      When i get called, i'm usually beat.

      What kinds of adjustments can you make here?

      If you are using a HUD you can make a lot of adjustments.

      If not you just have to grind until you can afford one.

      If players are "on to you" then you need to balance your lines, check once in a while on the flop with made hands do this like 30-70 or something, this sould help getting paid post flop

      Hi

      I found this was happening to me all the time until I fixed my table selection. I think that should be your first step. All the advice given in the above posts are great ways to improve your game and should be followed. What limit are you playing?

      How do you find NL50? Are the players much better than NL25?

      I'd be careful with cracked trackers, I heard that some of them still work when cracked but give incorrect info so can do more harm than good. Could also just be a rumor started to stop people stealing their products.

      general rule of thumb with trackers:

      If you haven't been able to earn a license or made enough cash to buy one, you don't need it yet.

      I think it's pretty well-known that using cracked trackers permanently activates your doomswitch.

      HUD software is constantly changing since poker rooms change their soft too. If You are not up-to-date, that can lead to strange reads sometimes. So using cracked HUD is ... well ... i think its not worth 50$ to risk Your profits ... :f_grin:

      In general no, not much better, in a small room like Everest, the regulars actually are the same on NL25/NL50.

      d00d! j00 5p3ll1ngZ 1z d4 b0mb.

      seriously, i had to read 4 times to figure out that dro = draw

      chk=check, reiz=raise are at least easier.
