... have not begun too well. Opposition is not much better but I haven't been playing great. I'm going to get my head down and really try and concentrate on fundamentals.
1. Adjusting to player types
This is something I need to concentrate more on, the last two players have been loose passive types but I've continued to try and bludgeon with trashy hands despite that they're rarely folding. Against loose players I need to tighten my range a little and limp alot more. If they're raising limps alot, then merge my limping and raising range so we can limp call.
2. No fancy syndrome
When I've lost a few chips, I sometimes get desperate to make them back and end up playing an extravagent bluff and stacking off. I don't think these plays are ever horrible in terms of EV since we've usually got some fold equity but still, I probably need to show some more patience.
3. Value, value and more value
I've heard it said that it's possible to make a profit at micros by just value betting made hands. I think recently I may have got a little out of line with the bluffs and probably not got as much value as I should.
4. Frame of mind
I need to make sure I'm playing when my mind is sharp - so I'm not tired and can quickly and effectively work out my likely equity in a hand.
Overall I don't think I'm doing too much wrong but a little fine tuning and extra effort on each of these four areas should hopefully see me turn it around. I'll try and blog less for a bit and work some more on my game. GL
