After thinking for a little bit, I figured I might as well play 3/6NL for a few days to see how quickly I can adjust to a new game. First day was kind of unusual I was playing CTS and running solo heads up. I was completley decimating solo, he has a ton of leaks in his game and is/was very easily exploitable. CTS is a little more solid and aggresive but he runs like god. He kept hitting sets against my TPTK in reraised pots eg. AcKc v JJ flop = AJc4c this happened a few times. But I also had my share of monsters too. He finished +1 buy in or so(meaningless difference) but it was fun finally playing against a decent player.

As for the other 3/6 regulars - none of them seem to be super-b players some more solid than others but overall there is no one I would avoid / no one I don't think I have a substancial edge over.
Yesturday was kind of an eve-ish session because I was getting a lot of setup hands + I was being sucked out (yes KK v AA happened a few times but I don't complain)

I reviewed some of my hands and plays form yesturday, and I changed my style up a little to something I thought will better fit the 3/6NL game and I got decent results today despite even being sucked out in a few massive pots eg. AK v AJ all in pre, or KK v JJ (he hit the J on the river and a few more which I neglect to mention.

Today's session was not too long - I will save my energy for the weekend games which I beleive are the softest times of the week.

This is somwhat of a "fancy" play - I don't do this very often because that would be considered spewing but I decided to mix it up this one time. Flop check in position almost always means I have absolutley nothing and I am giving up I figured I would indude a bluff on the turn from one of them. To my surprise they both checked (Apparently no one has anything) I figured any draw / pair would take a stab at this point. So I decided to make a "stealer" raise a bet designed to look like I have nothing but I am trying to pick up the pot because obviously no one else wants it.
I get check-raised, so I figure I induced a bluff - I think 3 betting would be attrocious so I decided to call and call almost any river bet and repop a river bet if I think it was weak. Since he checked I figured he was on a bluf and I decide to make a very small 1/2 pot value bet and he insta-calls with 77. I figured I could/should have made a slightly larger bet somehwere in the range of 200 but it's still fine.
