  1. Thanks for the response guys. I'm playing microstakes cash games now because i don't have periods of time long enough to play any SnG other than heads up.Really appreciate the help it's straightened things up i think. :PThanks again
  2. To justify the TT hand the blinds were about to raise and the flop bet was almost obviously a bluff. I figured the turn bet was just a continuation and with only 900 chips left and the blinds about to go to 100/50 (like a minute away) and the fact that this guy was an overly aggresive player i was willing to bet the remaining chips that he had a low pair or was just stone cold bluffing.Turned out he had to overcards and hit the Q btw.
  3. First off you've probably already gathered that i'm pretty new to poker. I play in the microstakes for free entertainment (on pokerstars) and seem to fail at playing small ball (mainly in SnGs but also in cash games). I think i might ahve the wrong idea about it.Okay so what i gather is that small ball involves getting into as many pots as possible in position with cards with high implied odds as well as good cards (preferably with 1 or 2 opponents). After this you out play your opponent through good reads and taking small stabs at the pot (backing off at the first sign of resistance unless y
  4. so should i be playing really aggresively with good cards so that i don't get drawn out? I used to play that style in SNGs but could scarcely build a big enough stack to survive the blinds and would get into push or fold mode too quickly.

  7. Thanks for the advice. I think the main problem was that i forgot about the great implied odds of small pocket pairs and suited connecters and so when i sat out while waiting for the calling stations to bow out i lost a lot of play. Thanks for that. I think i'll just play $1.20 45 mans where it's not only possible to make it to post-flop 1 on 1 but all the opponents also suck at it.
  8. Okay i'm an inexperienced player who enjoys playing poker as free entertainment. I started playing off the free $5 poker stars gave me a couple of months ago and got up to $30 in a $1.10 tournament before going back down to $15 through turbos. I don't have more than two hours up my sleeve most of the time and so i usually just play 45 man SnGs (non turbo since turbos are fustrating when you consistently lose to suck outs).I have a good understanding of poker odds which puts me ahead of.... basically all the players in these microstake SnGs and can read slightly better than average. I play $1.2
