just asking here those who think how easy is to grind trough 2NL while playing tight...
how am i supossed to grind trough 2NL if i get it always in good and always get runner runner ... and i play like big sample of hands and just playing tight (my bluffs and squeezes always made me just ++, not --), and all my loses comes from these hands... like 5-10 stacks down from every session cuz of runner runners...

so i just came to conclusion that variance in 2NL is highest possible, cuz they will never fold and always hit...abc poker... ya ... show me.... i played it and all i got was getting it in good and getting sucked every time /....
when i was playing higher stakes 5NL and10NL i guess it wasnt so unreal sickness.... idk why... mb of lower variance? i just came back to 2NL cuz i readjusted my Bankroll management from 20BI+ to 40BI+ and also cuz of downswing i had to went down....

its just... dont i have right to expect after 4x in a row, losing 85%:15%, to win at least fifth time in such situation? no words..

Im gonna be rough, to be honest, no one cares. Runner-runners? Suck it up and play through it and you will be fine. And if you really, really, honestly think you can beat 5NL or 10NL, then why just you dont stay there? 20 or 40 buyins, whatevs, if u can beat the limit its enough.
