I laughed my ass off on several occasions and almost fell out of my chair once. After a loss with AK an old man told me not to raise pre-flop with that hand because it is only %10 to win against 8 people. You can't get that experience online.

I think many missed the first line of this quote when they've been referring to it.

and its far easier to show your hands to others here on the forum.

It's even easier to respond to hands already posted and compare your thinking/reasoning to other responders.

Nice post...Other than the part quoted below.

He can play both online and live while getting back on his feet. Both can benefit each other.

you can make maybe $20/hr playing 3/6 live

No one is consistently making $20/hr in a live 3-6 game. Not even close.

A long losing streak is a thing to behold. Don't think for a minute that lady luck can't kick you to the extent you describe but it's not likely. Listen to what these guys are saying, move down in stakes,play some online and get more experience.

Cash in $30 to POKERSTARS. here you will play .05/.10. Yeah thats a huge drop from $3/6 but winning 1 pot in your whole life time at .05/.10 is 3200+ X Bigger than any wins you've had in terms of net profit.

Re-Read SSH, This is your bible. Post hands you found confusing in Micro forum.

When you get to $60 move up to .10/.20 and continue to grind.

This quote is probably the best info you can find on these forums.


I was in the same boat. Bought into PP and lost my BR. I then reread my books, and STUDIED THEM. I then bought in with the PROPER BANK ROLL(x300 bb) and am currently working on my game grinding the PS .05/.10 tables (25k hands @ 4.8 bb/100). I also dicuss my hands frequently with another soild player and just lurk these forums when others dicuss their hands.

Simple outcome, my game has turned around completely.

One last thing that has helped me with badbeats and downswings is to not view your BR as money, think of everything in bets. If you start thinking in money won and lost per session you'll lose your aggression and your game goes to XXXX.

I know its the same ole thing all the solid players say, but they're solid for a reason.

Hi Farfenugen,

I liked your post and I disagree with some of the posters opinions of your issues.

Although, I spent 3 or 4 months playing .50/1.00 online before I made it to a casino for the first time, my first experience with 3/6 live was astonishing. The looseness of the game was something I had not encountered online. It seemed like an entirely new challenge to learn to beat this game. I did lose for several sessions before I could make the adjustments necessary to beat this game. I, like you, enjoy the live game and I think it is important in the development of your game to learn to play both live and online. The two games in my opinion are very different.

I have since moved up substantially in levels both online and live but looking back at my stats at 3/6 live I earned 2.23 BB/hr for 13.38/hr. I donít want to make a super long post with the adjustments I made, but pm me if you would like to know. I am certainly not an expert compared to many of the posters on here who could help you with specifics if they wanted to.
