But I am willing to work hard on my game, do got a membership on HUSNG.com have read the e-book but, need to read it again cause I didn't get it well cause english isn't my native language.
Maybe you guys have got a good tip.
Here is a little info of me as a player, so maybe you can give me some personal advice?
I am a aggro player who plays more on feeling, do use a HUD but dont work with the stats. I do got problems with thinking in ranges, there is where I do got a big leak. I have a big EGO, and willing to fight for every hand. Dont wonna give up big pots, think I am better as my villain even when I am not.Quick decissions, LOOSE OOP.
Hope you give me a good advice, this notes are all based on my TURBO HU SnG games.
Disclaimer: I am a fish.
Start at the $1.50 until you get the hang of it and aren't losing money, then move up to $3.50 as the rake is 25% lower.
Work on the stats, simple things at first such as if villain opens 80%, you can mix in a few 3bet bluffs, if villain opens wide and cbets almost 100% then you can start check raise bluffing on dry boards such as A26 or K83, etc
I can't think in ranges really, it will probably get easier as you improve and come naturally I guess
Don't try and win every pot
Stop and think about each decision instead of button mashing like you're playing Mortal Kombat. Count to 5 if you have to. Try and think why villain checked/raised/bet before acting. Is this a good spot for villain to check raise? Is it likely I'll be facing a jam if I raise here? Will villain stab turn if I don't cbet? Do I think I am ahead or behind?
Tighten up OOP. I would suggest defending the top ~40% of hands from out of position until you get better. You can enter this range into pokerstove/equilab/etc to see what it looks like.
Some other random advice:
3bet jam any PP 22-TT
shove the lower PPs over a limp
open jam 22-55 from the button at any stack depth as they are hard to play post flop. Once you get better you can start minraise-calling 55 and maybe 44
cbet! CBET! CBET!
If you aren't sure whether to cbet or not, cbet.
higher turn cards are generally good to fire a second barrel on (as long as draws don't come in, the board isn't too wet...)
I hope this helps, some of this advice may not be entirely correct though as I'm still getting there myself.
