Hey Guys,

I'm having problems with 5nl zoom...I was doing great at 2nl, but in 5nl there are so many agressive players, I don't know how to handle with them.

Here is my graph:

As you can see, there are very big swings when I started 5nl zoom...

Basically, I get a lot of 3bets from late positions...And I'm stuck, don't know what to do, with pocket pairs, like 77, 88,99,1010, JJ...

And hands like AQ,AJ...

Those stealers are with 3bet stats like 20%, but there is like 50hands sample, so don't know if it's worth looking at them. Should I 4-bet them with AQ for example and then fold to shove ? or what ?

I am not playing this stake I am still at 2nl so I don't think I should give you tips and tricks but what I am sure aboutis that 50hands is not a good example. I would not take it seriously until I have at least 200-500hands on them.

agree with the poster about 50 hands being way too small of a sample. You might want to test the waters longer to evaluate the true state of that limit.

Hello Justinovskis,

Welcome to PokerSchoolOnline. Here's a short video about PSO and what it has to offer you. Also check out >>This Page<< for more info.

I think you need to also remember is't very normal to have swings when playing poker. The graph overall is heading in the right direction so it may just take a few small tweeks to really start crushing 5NL. Perhaps post some hands in the analysis forum where you find yourself struggling with an aggressive opponents.

We're here to help you so please feel free to ask any questions you may have and thank you for being a member of PokerSchoolOnline.
