Pit Stop...

Been away on the slopes of France, banging myself around on my snowboard. I haven't put much time to playing poker over the past few weeks. Im still on the uptrend and will start to do some good analysis of hands which I will put on here.

In the meantime subscribe yourself to Verneer's $200 - $10,000 post on 2p2. Once he hits this he will be giving it all away to charity.. Top top man

Hoping this is a turnaround

I find it hard to write any decent posts when I cannot beat 10nl. With this in mind I have trawled the web to find something of use to help me in my micro bashing. I came across this post on 2p2 and I think it may be the cure.

The basics
Look for 'fat value'' from the fish
Avoid butting heads with regs
Avoid marginal situations
Be Patient

All this is not anything new and maybe I have said these points somewhere before but looking through a lot of my hands over the past 15k I can see a lot of head butting vs regs and a lot of marginal situations. The money has come from the loose players and been handed to the regs.

Since reading this post, even if only for a couple of thousand hands I have seen results on the positive. I have marked where I read the above post.

Ive reduced the amount of suited connectors, my vpip/pfr are closer and I feel like I am in a LOT less marginable situations. I really hope this is the turnaround I need for this level. It should become clear soon.

Also for anyone with their head in the sand the past week check out Pokerstars new Home Games BETA. A few different thoughts on 2p2 on this but in my case I like it.
