I've been playing the $0.25 hold'em games with 45 players and I've made $30 doing that. I thought I would move up to the $0.50 games. I've been playing them for a couple of days now with no luck. The game is so much harder as people seem to be going all in with very weak cards. Can this game be beaten to make money?

If people play differently, you can beat them by adjusting appropriately. Really, if they are going all-in with bad hands, then your chances of winning go up. But they go down if you try and exploit those players by playing badly yourself. Just try to play correctly yourself, and you should do better than most of your opponents.

Thanks for the reply PanickyPoker. My normal game on the $0.25 is playing tight until I get a good hand. But the trouble I'm having with this is the blinds are going up too quick for how I play. I know I need to adjust my game but I've not figured it out yet. Would you reckomend skipping the turbo games and going onto the $1 game or should I keep with it and learn this game before I move on?

roomik17 I'll give the poker trainer a go I've not given one of those a go yet. Thanks.

if you can master turbo games, it will give you a big up on other players.. turbos require a good knowledge of shove/fold ranges that most people dont have a clue about

If you good at the .25c tournaments just skip the .55c tournaments and play the 1$ 45 sngs.

Welcome to the forum ppl!

Sounds like you're on a good start, in that you see a problem and you're attempting to fix it.
The live training Roomi suggested should benefit you a lot. I've played numerous games w/ Cowboy (19honu62) and spent a lot of time with him in vent. Good teacher and analyzer.

You may be able to ask him this question at the live training too.

Best o' luck!

The way it's going at the moment I'm not sure I know what the shove/fold rages are anymore The live training is a bit too late in the day for me. It does look like there will be one on Thurdsay I'll be able to do though. I'll keep with the turbo's on your advice roomik17 but at this rate I don't think It'll be long before I go back to the $0.25 games. If that does happen when I build my money up again I think I'll go onto the $1 games as pokerstar671 said.

Thanks for the welcome Dan.

I've got a long way to go in learning this game. Any help to make me a better player is always welcome. I didn't think the game would be as diffucult just moving up one level.

Super +1

Tournaments revolve around short-stacked play, and you won't find that anywhere, as much as you will in the turbos. If you start to understand how your push/fold and calling ranges should expand as a function of your blinds decreasing, then you'll be way ahead of probably 95% of the field you're playing in.

I wouldn't really recommend moving up to an MTT that you can only lose 30 times before busting, because it takes more practice than that to become profitable. So, one option is to return to the games that you're already successful at, and throw in a more expensive game once every ten games or something like that. If you're not sure how to play them, either wait until you have a few hundred buy-ins, or just practice it occasionally until you know that you're winning at it. But for sure study some short-stack theory in the meantime. It'll help a whole lot. I'm sure that there are many websites dedicated to it, including the tool that roomik has suggested.

Also, the Live Trainings are one of the best learning resources you'll find for any aspect of poker. Make sure to try and use them. And if you can't, watch the recorded sessions. They're great.

Thanks for the advice paniky. I'm going to go back to the $.025 games as it's starting to become obviouse that I'm not ready to move up just yet. I'm going to practice the IMC trainer until I'm getting 100% as well.

Thanks for the advice everyone, I've got a lot to think about.

I have a lot of trouble in the turbos ok ive only played 1 but I simply know I do not know what to do

what was the link for roomik please as it does not work now ?

once you can win the 45 man $1 if you want 45 players and not turbo the jump is incredible and upto $6 buyin(and thi sis the mainreason i joined the forum) and the live & non live(videos lol) training

I ran good and got lucky in $1 but found the 25c quite easy (as long i wasnt tired which is weird)
I would prefer to be able to play and have a fighting chance at betwen 1 and 6 for 45man but they are all turbo

ohh sorry there is a page 2 didnt know
