so i started 10nl. thats a whole different game! everyone is so incredibly tight! too bad i learned it the hard way lol. i've lost the entire stack($10) in the very beginning: set vs full house. this guy limped in from the button with 33 and i was the small blind with 98, flop was 399 with potential draw. i raised on flop and on turn, he checked both times. i sensed 33 or smth like A9 but couldn't believe it given his passive play so i put him on a flush-draw(huge mistake! after playing more hands his VPIP was below 10%) so i checked the river and he made huge bet. gotcha! busted flush! im all in! ****! 33?!
ok now i know 10nl is not 2nl where lots of people call all sort of crap till the river..and frequently(due to number of callers) win with gutshot-straigts or flushes. i even won few hands on a BB when everyone including SB folded to me! unbelievable.
i have to admit it tilted me so i've had some excessively creative(read: stupid) play after that hand. but then i think i kinda got it: everyone is so much tighter (HUD helped me here lol)
pot/blind stealing works great(red line). the only thing that saved me
rake is disgusting! $1.45 over 168 hands.
