If you don't get any feedback, you might want to reverse the order of this post. Suggest you contact a few friends you know on the site and see if they are both willing and available.

Another option is to begin posting a few of the hands that you found challenging and ask for opinions on how one should play it.

Well I had a look holdem.

What can I say! You folded every hand for 20 hands at a 6 max table!

Whether this was an attempt to lull the rest of the table into a false sense of security I am not sure.

When you did eventually play, you made a min raise on the button. The player to your immediate left in the SB had increased his short stack and seemed to be aggressive and willing to go to showdown with a part of the board, and he called.

He half pots on the Q high rainbow flop, and you 3bet with a 3X raise. I was really hoping you had As or Ks at this point because I was certain this guy had the Q when he 4 bet you small. You 5 bet all in and he calls. Turn is a brick, river is a J. You muck, he wins with AQ unsuited.

I can only assume you had AK or maybe 10s, but how you can three bet and then 5 bet all in when it is obvious he has the better hand is beyond me.

If I have AK or an under pair here, I want to keep the pot small until I hit something better especially with this opponent, and lose the minimum.

If these are tilt issues, then really you have to take a bit of time out and get back to basics. Then again you could just be taking the Michael like you were earlier in the month??? It was a nice post by your mate earlier and I would advise you strongly to take his advice.

Cheers,

TC

Well I am watching again as you lost another stack and re-bought!

You played a bit more this time, but again why you are raising 2.5 X at 2NL is not clear to me.

When the guy that took you out came to the table, I immediately noted he bought in for the full amount and was playing at only one table. These guys limp and rarely raise without premium and they try to induce action with small raises. When he raised in MP and then was reraised by the CO (multitabler and Tight) and with 74cents left, it was either shove or fold. You decided to shove with AK and came up against Aces. It could be construed as the right play but if you had formed a read on the villain, you should have folded!

You have reloaded, holding your own stack wise but honestly you are being outplayed and only winning small pots. I hope that you hit lucky because honestly these guys are just above your skill level, sorry to be blunt but it is the truth.

You just left the table, a good decision!

Cheers,

TC

My advice is to watch the videos from Flixx on 6 max at low limits.

You have to adjust your game to the table dynamic but folding 20 hands in a row at 6max where the blinds come round quicker just screams fish. And what do you mean by card dead? Suited connectors, one gaps, even high 2 or 3 gaps are all playable hands at 6 max. Your opening and calling range should be wider than just premium hands.

Now I know that many advocate going for a very TAG approach even short handed but you are not going to get any action if you just raise your big hands even at 2NL. And the thing is that the dynamic and style of play changes as you move up the levels. It is very likely that a TAG, even NIT approach at 25NL 6 max will prosper, but once you move to 50NL it requires another adjustment.

My own opinion is that grinding up the levels in cash is much more difficult than say 6 months ago, but it is still achievable; you just have to learn and adapt to the different styles at different levels, and player reads/note taking is of much greater importance to make a profit here.

Cheers,

TC
