I don't think 30k is enough. What if someone ran bad for 10k hands? What I want to say by this post is that of course you can beat micros in 70k hands but you have to run somewhat good or decent. I played with a guy who had 20bb/100 on nl10 in 50k hands and he was telling me that he's such a crusher. There's no way in the world that it's his true winrate and you have guys like this who tells everyone on the forums how good they are. I'm not saying that micros are hard to beat because they are not. I'm just saying that variance is a real thing and no matter how much of a crusher you are, you're gonna face it or not if you are really lucky. It seems like a lot of people act like variance doesn't exist at micros because they have a big edge over the player pool. You can't run away from getting terrible runouts, from losing all-ins, from coolers, from being card dead. I don't remember exact yt/bloggers names from top of my head.

It's always funny to me when I see all these youtubers/bloggers who play 70k hands from nl2 and they get to nl50 and they act like they're crushers. The thing is, people who move up like that most likely run good as well. There's no way to move up like that without running good or decent. You can have a stretch of 20k hands when you can't do literally nothing. Every runout, every all in, bad cards, you just can't do anything against it even if you're the best player in the world, especially when people take the aggresive route with BRM. That's why it's always funny to me when someone played nl10 for 50k and he/she says that they beat the limit for 15bb/100. Some will say that they run under EV and they still beat the limit, the thing is that the EV line doesn't tell about bad runout and you having to fold, it doesn't tell you about coolers like set over set, or AA vs KK. Tha'ts my little rant.

but why everone uses those sizes? Bigger OOP and smaller IP?

Comment | rosaaa commented on 3b sizing

I honestly didn't know about that because I've never seen anyone using bigger sizing on bb. I'll look into it, thanks.

Comment | rosaaa commented on 3b sizing

I 3b 8bb because I want to punish them for opening that low and they still call.

Post | rosaaa posted in NLHE: 3b sizing

What's the best 3b sizes? IP: 9bb against 3bb, 8bb against 2-2.5bb, OOP: 12bb against 3bb, 11bb against 2.5bb, 10bb against 2-2.2bb. Are those good?

July 26, 2021 | 9:45 a.m.

EP opens AsKh, CO flat calls and flop comes Qc Th 9d, turn 2s, river Ad
EP checks, CO bets 1/3 and EP calls.
EP checks, CO bets for 1/3 gain, EP check raises and CO calls.
EP checks and CO bets for 1/2, EP calls

Why these frequencies are so different?

Post | rosaaa posted in NLHE: exploit by c-betting nl10

Let's say I open A7dd EP and CO calls and flop comes 3s 4h Ks. In theory I should x and there's a problem because a lot of people bet with nothing because someone checked. Should I just c-bet? A lot of people overfold and they have a lot of random Ax here and pocket pairs.

July 17, 2021 | 8:26 p.m.

I know. I was just thinking why in gto you would double barrel with AK.

July 4, 2021 | 10:12 a.m.

you want to mix like that to not be exploitable? For example, if you're gonna check AK all the time and bet aces, it's easy to play against you. If you are barreling with AK etc. you're gonna get paid more with value like aces for example, am I right?

July 4, 2021 | 9:31 a.m.

Could someone explain to me? Let's say flop comes 667 rainbow in 3 bet pot sb vs btn. Why would I c-bet here? The villain has 77, 88, 99, TT, JJ, QQ, AQ, AK, AJ etc. There's a high chance that I'm gonna get called. Maybe if a villain calls 3bets with hands like JTs, KTs etc. then we can fold out some trash on this board. Isn't it just better to check on this board? If the villain has AK, AQ, AJ or even AT, he's most likely gonna check back. I just find it annoying to lose 30bb in a 3b pot because I didn't hit the flop and double barreling doesnt make a lot of sense in this spot, especially at micros.

Post | rosaaa posted in Chatter: terrible mindset at micros

I have a huge problem with mindset in micro cash games.

1st example: I 3b with AQs from the blinds vs btn open, the btn calls and K appears on a dry board. I range c-bet small and he calls and now I start getting tilted and I double barrel knowing that it's BAD to double barrel in that spot and I check the river after the villain calls my double barrel, the villain bets on the river and I fold, roughly 50bb lost.

2nd example: A player open raise from EP, I 3b with QQ and there's a cold 4 bet OOP from a NIT and most of the time it's AA or KK, sometimes AK but most of the time it's AA or KK. What do I do? Of course, I call knowing that I'm probably behind. I still call his huge c-bet because I have an overpair still knowing that the villain has AA or KK, the villain goes all in on the turn? What do I do? Of course, I call knowing that I'm behind and I'm getting mad at myself after calling.

Third example: A fish opens 2bb from EP, I 3b with QQ from MP, the villain calls. Flop comes 7K2 rainbow. The villain checks and I c-bet 1/3 and the villain raises out of nowhere and what do I do? I call like an idiot knowing that he probably has a strong K or a 777 instead of folding.

I just can't get out of this mindset and it's literally killing my winrate. The worst thing is that I know that it's a terrible mindset and I still play like that. It's like I would have problems with alcohol and I would still drink knowing that it's bad for me. lmao

I don't think that's gonna make more money in the end. I just want to play like that only at the beginning of taking a shot just to be more safe. When I win a couple of buy ins, I'm gonna start playing my normal game.

June 15, 2021 | 3:17 p.m.

Let's say nl5 is what I normally play and I take a shot at nl10. I was thinking if I should play tighter at beginning to reduce variance, like for example:4 bet jamming AKo pre flop because a lot times you're gonna be flipping against AK, QQ etc. or 4bet bluffing can get you in a lot of trouble. Let's say I play tighter at the beginning and If I win a couple buy ins, I start to open up my game more. What do you think?

June 15, 2021 | 2:02 p.m.

Post | rosaaa posted in Chatter: playing different when taking a shot?

Would you play different when taking a shot? Let's say I have $200 and I take a shot at nl10, I lose 5 buy ins = move down to nl5. Should I play tighter or play my regular game?

Comment | rosaaa commented on zoom and swings micros

honestly, i didnt notice any difference between pools in zoom (in my case rush and cash) vs reg tables. It's the same people, they just show up with better hands in zoom because they can simple fold trash. It may be true when it comes to higher stakes but at nl2/nl5, it's the same.

Comment | rosaaa commented on zoom and swings micros

I asked this question because a lot of times I find myself in 3 bet pots and I lose 20bb here and there and I lose buy ins without even noticing. 'the reality is that we should be focusing on all the smaller spots where we made mistakes that add up' Yeah, I noticed it.

June 12, 2021 | 10:52 p.m.

Comment | rosaaa commented on zoom and swings micros

Yeah, I may decrease tables because I lose buy ins without even noticing. Losing 30bb here and there in 3 bet pots and out of nowhere, two buy ins are gone.

June 12, 2021 | 10:03 p.m.

Post | rosaaa posted in NLHE: zoom and swings micros

Do zoom have more swings? I literally I'm down 3 buy ins in first 10 minutes of the session, then I win 5 buy ins in an hour and lose those 5 buy ins. Am I just bad or is it standard? theoretically, variance should be maybe not higher but you get to realize the variance faster when you 4 table zoom. Can anyone tell me the difference between swings at regular vs zoom? I'm thinking about switching to regular tables because it's crazy what's happening at zoom.

Post | rosaaa posted in NLHE: AKo and 4 bet jam 100bb 6 max

Why do solvers 4 bet jam with AKo instead of just a 4bet? I know they call as well but it's mostly a 4 bet jam. Is it even profitable at micros to jam AKo like that?

Do I fold the river? At micros it's probably a fold but I still called of course. I imagine that it was played correctly according to a solver but I'm not sure anymore. It seems like I try to think 'what would solver' do and I call in spots like these knowing that it's probably no good in micros.

May 27, 2021 | 2:57 p.m.

What do they call c-bet with? Let's see, 8h6h2s flop. They call with 44, 55, 66 and 88 are gonna be raised because they hit a set. They call with all the overpairs of course, they may have suited broadways like KQs, JQs, JTs etc. A lot of times it looks like this: the villain checks, I c-bet for 1/2, the villain calls and checks on the turn, I check as well, the villain checks on the river and I check. Let's say the board looked like this: 8h 6h 2s 9c Qs. In my opinion double barreling is scary on this board because the villain has a lot of sets and I can get check raised and betting on the river seems weak in my opinion, the villain can bluff catch me with 77, 99, TT and I can get check raised on the river by sets. If I'm gonna check back on the river, there's not a lot of hands I can win against, I just don't know what to do in spots like these.

I sometimes wonder how in the hell some of these players are up several buy ins, really. Some of hands they call with are just straight up ridiculous.

May 22, 2021 | 10:48 p.m.

'You will go through stretch after stretch where we bet this flop and and it doesn't work bet it is still the right play. ' That's the problem. People call c-bets a lot, like really a lot and I'm confused a lot of times if I c-bet correctly or not.

I don't know If I'm playing these spots correct, I would appreciate if someone can help me with these spots.

Hero has AKo on btn, the villain opens for 2.5x in CO, I 3 bet him and flop comes 862 rainbow. The villain checks and now what? In my opinion I should check because the villain has sets, overpairs and some air. I should have a lot of more overpairs than him but a lot of times they have here hands like 99, TT, JJ, QQ, there are of course sets 888, 666.

Hero has AKh on btn, the villain opens for 2.5x in CO, I 3 bet him. Flop comes 8h 6h 2s, the villain checks and hero? In my opinion it's a 1/2 bet. If he calls and turn comes non heart 5, 7, 9, T, J I'm gonna check, if the turn comes Q (doesnt matter what suit), K or A, I'm gonna double barrel this. Is my thinking good or am I missing something here?

It's just annoying to lay down hands like AK in 3 bet pots on flops like these.

May 22, 2021 | 11:01 a.m.

My bad. I'm new to the forums.

May 7, 2021 | 9:25 p.m.

'On runouts like this, you really want three streets of value from AQ-AT.' That's exactly why I played this hand the way I played. It just annoying that I lose a lot of 3 bet pots like this and I started to doubt my game. I know that I shouldn't be result oriented but I've been really getting destroyed in 3 bet pots like I said.
