Then moved up to NL5 and found I wasnīt beating the limit following the same strategy (despite blackrain79 saying that CTM was enough to beat also NL5, but I disagree here). After much trial and error, tilt issues, going back to NL2 or stop playing, I finally learned how to beat NL5. So yes, having a good strategy is mandatory, but it is not enough. If you become angry when you lose, and start doing stupid things, you wonīt win at any stake above NL2 imo.

I usually use color coding for all fishes that I find when playing, but itīs impossible to avoid regs, so I donīt try that anymore. And I think learning how to play against them is essential, as even when you have 3 fishes on your table, you still have to fight regs.

I think we might be talking almost the same thing with slightly different words lol. But thanks for your tips, and let me know if I can help with your goals also.
I'm not an expert but i give you one last advise becouse i see you a little bit comfusing with these you read at internet and at forums.In my opinion if you want to do something good at poker find a coach end start from the begginning if you dont want a coach find good information and see a lot videos for your game for both options i have to give you something very good and very intresting which will improve your game 99% send me pm if you want if you have something other in your mind its ok you can do that but you need to go out from your comford zone

Re: 2018: From 5NL to 50NL. I will win this time.

Decided to change a little bit the timing of my sessions, so finished a little later than usual. Games are definitely softer this time, but itīs not a big difference. Began the night session running good and just being agressive, but then became card dead and lost a stack vs a fish when I got pocket kings. I did not tilt by any means, but decided to quit and finish my day anyway to avoid any anger feelings. This is the hand. I donīt think this villain would slowplay pocket aces just flatting my 4-bet, even after that min 3 bet, so was expecting a lot of weird stuff and decided to just play my hand very fast after seeing that flop:





    Poker Stars, $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players
    Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite. View Hand #37932732

    Hero (MP2): $6.12 (122.4 bb)
    MP3: $4.79 (95.8 bb)
    CO: $5.56 (111.2 bb)
    BTN: $7.14 (142.8 bb)
    SB: $28.10 (562 bb)
    BB: $4.85 (97 bb)
    UTG+2: $5.07 (101.4 bb)
    MP1: $2 (40 bb)

    Preflop: Hero is MP2 with K K
    2 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, 3 folds, SB raises to $0.25, BB folds, Hero raises to $0.80, SB calls $0.55

    Flop: ($1.65) 5 T 5 (2 players)
    SB checks, Hero bets $0.80, SB raises to $3.98, Hero raises to $5.32, SB calls $1.34

    Turn: ($12.29) Q (2 players)
    River: ($12.29) T (2 players)

    Spoiler:



    Get the Flash Player to use the Hold'em Manager Replayer.



    Anyway, almost got the 2500 hands (played 2425). Also did a very long walk in the afternoon around my city, which I usually do 3 to 5 days a week, and is very relaxing. Today increased the distance a little bit to 11 km, climbing a few hills (my city was built around the mountainous part of Brazil, and has a lot of hills, some very steep) and just enjoying the moment.

    See you tomorrow.

    Finally decided to put a proper session, and played a little over 7 hours. Got 2851 hands today, so Iīm pretty happy. Besides a problem hand that I had earlier, nothing special. Games were pretty aggressive tonight, but all my tables had at least one fish, and half had 2 or more, so I canīt complain. My self assessment is that I played a B- game today.
