First month of membership! Been committed to improving and while there's a lot of luck involved with winning a tournament, I felt very in the zone focused and it feels really great to get a win! Thanks to everyone one in the wonderful RIO community!

Thanks for your response! I've never been the best note taker while playing. My current method is just marking the players I feel are bad/recreational. It's tough to get many specific notes on players when switching tables a bunch. I'm working hard as ever on my game though and grateful to have found what seems to be a great community of poker players here. Thanks again and GL to you

Hi, thanks for your reply. That was one of the responses I was expecting, along with saying you shouldn't have to table select at all at micros. I guess when the table starts to get on the lower plrs/flop side, I find myself in tougher spots and bigger pots so I lose a stack w/ a strong hand vs stronger. Some of them may be coolers, but I certainly don't want to fall into that kind of unlucky always coolered attitude. That's why I'm here though, to learn, and practice, and learn more so I know more often if I'm making correct decisions.

I'm currently playing 10NL 6-max as my main game on Bovada. I haven't gotten Holdem indicator or any software really, and I've noticed that I'll join games with a high players/flop (40%+) and it seems they will be down to low 30s within half hour-an hour. Is it common for you regulars out there to constantly be having to switch out and find new games? Obviously we'd all love games to stay good for as long as possible, but sometimes there doesn't seem to be any games that hit the 40% mark at all. Am I just bum hunting too hard? My goal is of course to move up, so should I try sticking with games longer, take notes, get exp vs regulars, things like that? Also since I'm asking so many questions and just got an essential sub recently and have been studying more, which pros or videos would you recommend for fine tuning my fundamentals? I feel I have a good grasp of the game, but want to really hammer that in to my brain before diving into more advanced concepts. Thanks for reading!
