A quick introduction, and plan for this blog..
I've started playing poker about 2 years ago and started really trying to learn the game a year ago. I play cash games exclusively on Pokerstars and have lost money overall.
I'm starting the blog however to explain how I am learning to play poker. That might sound off or odd a bit, but the idea is that everything I read today is from excellent players who have already beaten and escaped the limits I'm currently playing (2nl - 5nl). Because of that some of the nuances which they take for granted escape the training material or are not emphasized enough to stick to my brain. I am assuming there are others.
I multitable up to 12 tables, and I have a good feel for the game. The problem at these lower limits is more so self control then poker knowledge. So I want to wrap into this blog some psychological difficulties I am having with the game as well.
So the plan:
Explain with graphs, analysis and HH how I have beaten a level
Introduce the situations where I tend to spew money
Offer some eye opening visuals to concepts already understood
Progress at a steady rate to 25nl
Explain psychological shortfalls and tasks I have given myself to retrain the way I think.
I'll add more.. good luck at the tables!
