Shall we?

From rags to riches? Well, I'm hoping to at least go from terrible to bad.

The battle plan:
- $50 bankroll
- NL 2 FR
- 2-4 tables
- post every losing (or weird) hand here. (not EVERY hand but y'know.)

The goal:
- NL 5 (i know right, so sad.)

Hopefully you fine folks will find the kindness in you to help me! Or at the very least not flame me.. :3

See you when I'm done eating and have played some hands!

GL sir

btw what kind of plan is "NL 5"? you can just click a higher stakes table whenever you want... set yourself a BR goal you want to need before "NL 5" imo (and after that maybe say "beat NL 5 for 20 BI" as a plan)

(nvm I somehow got caught up in the not reading much)

Thanks everyone. No hands yet because I had problems connecting to stars.

As for the goal being NL5, what I mean is putting NL2 behind me completely.
I don't know about "skipping" the low stakes, but I hear you on NL2 probably not teaching me too much. People play blindfolded there, but I figure if I can't consistently beat these players there's no reason to move up.

Regarding books, I don't wanna spend my entire bankroll on one heh. I'll buy HEM though when the trial runs out, for sure.

Ok first hand, really had to fight with my self on this one.
My thoughts: Higher bets on flop/turn, this guy will call anyways.
The check raise on the river threw me for a loop, I think I have him beat here, but he's so loose he could easily call to the river with the jack.

Won't bother copying hand history but I raised AKo pre-flop and get all-in'd by a 10/9 over 280 hands player with a bigger stack than mine. I figured folding was the right move because AKo only hits every 3 flops iirc, so should be under 50% somewhere when accounting for the other 2 community cards as well.

reload to full stack so on pokerstars reload to $5. This way you can always win the opponents full stack when you go all-in as opposed to only a fraction of it.

Say this outloud! Why was six afraid of seven?......Because Seven Eight Nine

Done and done, thanks.

By the way are you guys sure it's possible to win at NL2? Everyone is a professional rock. There's never more than 1 player with over 30 vpip per table and usually 2 players > 20 vpip. So what do I do, steal from UTG with any cards? IDK about stealing 1k blinds, not feeling it.

Ran KK into AA.

Inb4 disaster and failure and dissapointment.

1: dont sweat KK vs AA, it happens, it sucks, but your bankroll can take it
2: stick to your bankroll
3: dont post losing hands, post hands of spots where youre genuinely confused, or feel you played them badly. post your thoughts or ask a question and youll usually get a pretty good answer.

like everything that costs money, theres usually a free version on the internet - poker books are no exception, theres also a wealth of free audio and video resources too.

good luck man

on the AQ hand, raise more preflop

make it 4xbb + 1bb for every person in pot + maybe a little extra depending on if theyre a station.

so you could make it 12 - 14c preflop

once the flop comes, just bomb it, youve got TPTK, open ended nut straight, and backdoor nut flush.

bet strong, close to full pot and get it in on the turn, aim to get it in as fast as possible and expect to be up against something like KQ, KJ, TJ, A9, 9T, 99 etc.

playing hard and fast with your strong hands will print money.
