Think I made mention to the fact that I was gonna cut down on tables, and it was going ok. I was certainly improving in my hand reading and hence my NSD winnings were improving at a steady rate. However, I still couldn't consistently show any improvement in SD winnings. I really don't know what's going on in that department, as it was such a strong part of my game.
I had opened up 4 tables of 6max early last week, and within 100 hands, I had lost 3.5 buy ins. The hands are un-important, but needless to say I was running very bad. I took a break for an hour or so, then I remembered something Vanq said. He was talking to me about HU 'n stuff so I thought 'In for a penny in for a pound'.
So since that day I have played solely Heads Up at 100nl on Paddy Power. At the moment I'm 2 tabling, and have got about 9k hands in so far at this level. The play is absolutely shocking I have to say. Things are going really well over this small sample, but I'm trying to play a low variance type of game, if that makes sense. The way I do it is basically just play really aggro in position. The regs are pretty tight to say the least so basically I just raise atc otb. They just give up like a high % of the time, so it's free money really. You'd be amazed at how nitty they are.
Then you get another type of reg who like to think he's thinking on level far beyond their ability. But they just bluff away there stacks liker there's not tomorrow. And then we have the ATM's who basically play over rolled and are looking for a quick spin up. They seriously are atrocious, along with most of the short stackers as well tbh.
So enjoying winning again, I hope it continues, but I won't post an update on my winnings until the end of month summary. In the meantime I'll just throw up some posts on how it's going with some hands as well.
Oh by the way, I was supposed to be having my coaching session last week, but unfortunately I was too ill for it. So I'll have to re-arrange that some time in the near future.
