New Challenge: Movin' On Up

Recommended Posts

DROBERTS and I have decided we want a thread to help organize and motivate us micro grinders. We want a place to talk strat, post graphs, hands, questions, etc. And of course to bitch about beats and variance ;)We encourage all micro/small-stakes guys to get involved as we grind and move up the stakes.We're planning to move up when we have 25 buy-ins for the next limit, and dropping down if you lose 5-10 buy-ins.Please convert hands, it's just way better that way! http://www.feralcowpoker.com/converter.phpOther than that, let's just grind, get better and move on up!GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Firstly, Dustin (I'm not gonna write droberts every time I refer to you) and I are currently playing 10nlThen... here's my first spot. Is this a good spot to keep betting? Balugawhale and other DC coaching are always saying at the micros to just value bet until they give you a reason to believe you're beat.feral_cow_icon.gifv1.10Feral Cow Poker Hand ConverterFull Tilt No-Limit Hold'em $0.05/$0.10 - 6 playersUTG colcali77: $10.03 UTG+1 hammer8484: $9.77 CO danman225: $5.48 Button warthog21: $4.09 SB Hero: $10.00 BB pamanciomec00: $10.85 Preflop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with :3h: :5c: (6 players)colcali77 calls $0.10, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, pamanciomec00 folds, colcali77 calls $0.30Flop: ($0.90) :club:: :4h: :qh: (2 players)Hero bets $0.65, colcali77 calls $0.65Turn: ($2.20) :ts: (2 players)Hero bets $1.50, colcali77 raises to $4.90, EDIT: this was early in the sess without much info, but dude ended up being 48/38/.88 over 40 handsSo yeah, I folded, but I dunno what he raises here except for a slow-played set or A5... As I look back the low AF def makes this a fold, but I'm curious about firing a 2nd barrel

Hi! Super excited to be here. And I think this should totally be in Gen Poker for maximum views.First hand is fine James, 2nd I think calling or folding are both fine, I probably call. If you called what would your plan be for different rivers?

This is an awesome idea. I really hope this gains popularity.James, first hand fold is fine. Second hand I prefer bet/folding the turn, and c/c'ing all blank rivers. There's a ton of draws and 65 type hands that we'll get value from on the turn but not the river.

I'd c/f spades, and some cards that hit straight draws and stuffI can't see a "good river" that I'd c/c,like if an off suit 2 comes and he bets again I still don't think I'm good, but we'd look at the pot odds and such...

Bet/call-it offSo much of his range is PPs and whiffed overs and you only lose to 77 and 99, but you crush TT JJ etc. If you think he floats overs you can c/r or c/c but I think his range is heavily weight toward 88-JJ and we're crushing that range;)Sizing: $4 would be my first thought.

Shove the turn. Villain is unlikely to have a 6x hand, AA and KK usually 4 bet preflop. Players at 10NL will call with TT, JJ, A9, and maybe 87 depending on how loose they open UTG and call a 3 bet.

We have $8 left and the pot is $7. I don't think villain's calling range is going to change no matter how much we bet, so we might as well bet the max.

This is probably a pretty noob question, but what kind of bankroll is considered micro limits? Anything under $1000? $500?

I wish I could be a cash-game grinder. But I run so bad in cash games, it's sickening. Over 10,000 hands and I've yet to make Kings profitable...But for the sake of this thread, maybe I'll give it another go. GL!

I think the micros encompass like 25nl and below and small-stakes nl is 50nl to 200nl with mid-stakes starting at 400nl
