10 NLz +

Hi,

I've been floating around micro stakes (2/5 NLz) on Stars for around a year or so, and finally making a conscious effort to improve and move up to midstakes. I have logged around 150k hands at 2nl/5nlz lifetime (lol) at a pretty good winrate, but always been afraid of moving up and taking shots. No more!

I'm 21 years old, currently studying a Computer Science degree and also have a job so I only have so much time to play. My goal is to play 5k hands a week while also doing a few hours of hand review/study. I'll be posting hands, thoughts and stats so would appreciate all input and feedback!

Started off well, up about 4 bi after around 1k hands after running extremely hot which is always nice.

Some hands:

(Pre 54%, Flop 49%, Turn 84%)
Hero shows Q K (Flush, King High)
(Pre 46%, Flop 51%, Turn 16%)
Hero wins 193.9 BB

Had a moment of madness in this hand, I don't like my flop raise and hate my turn shove even more. I think the turn shove could get villain to fold some kind of middling pair, but a normal size bet would also accomplish the same.

H2 isn't spew. You just ran into the top of his range.

Re: 10 NLz +

Life got in the way, so had to withdraw about $150 from my BR so moving down to 5nl until I get back on track.

Some hands:

Not sure about this one, just feel like he's going to show up with a set or two pair 100% of the time.

I like occasionally checking dry boards with overpairs in spots where villain's hand is face up, as nobody will expect me to check back aces and instead put me on AK.

Might be a bit thin, but had a feeling my hand was good based on how quickly he was calling and not contemplating a raise. Plenty of worse aces/random pairs he shows up with.

Check flop because I'd puke if I got check raised, but when it checks to me on turn I'm confident I have the best hand. River might be a bit thin, but there's a good chance he gets glued to his pocket 8's or whatever.

Don't know if there's too much to say about this, I doubt he bets turn with jacks

I'm not sure about my raise here, I think I can get a lot of worse hands to fold and I still have decent equity when called if villain doesn't have a club. Gonna have to plug this one into equilab

Was about to fold here, 5 betting a cold 4 bet is just super strong and I'm not even sure he does this without at minimum AKs.

currently up about $56 in 2k hands of 5nl/10nl cause I'm running so good, but still spewing a lot in certain spots. one thing I have significantly improved on is bluff catching (i.e, i'm doing it far less) because I'm realising that 99% of the time the guy has the exact hand he's representing.
