The journey from Full Ring to 6max

I'm hoping to use this thread to chart my progress as I take a shot at moving up. I've been playing 25nl FR since FTP came back after Black Friday but have started to make the switch to 6max so that I can move up (50nl FR is dead on FTP).

I started my first ever pg&c thread last year to document what I hoped would be a recovery from this downswing I suffered at the end of 2014



By coincidence my results started improving on 3rd January 2015 when I started my pg&c thread and I ended up with the following results for the year (all 25nl)



My old thread is here and contains a short bio

https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/17...egins-1500867/

So welcome to the thread guys and let's see how things go

Re: Finally moving on up?

Good start to the year so far



It's my intention to get back to posting more hand histories for discussion or whatever but I can't help posting another hand involving My Little German friend as it's the first chat I've had from him in 2016. For anyone new looking in he constantly abuses me at the tables and believes I'm a 'house player'. I've never said a word in chat in response to him and that winds him up even more.

Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (6 handed) - Full Tilt Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com

CO ($25)
Button ($32.66)

Ty. I've played FTP since way back in the day when it was competing with Stars for the No1 site. I like the software but I may be moving some of my volume elsewhere.

Re: Finally moving on up?

Really frustrating hand.

Villain plays 21/11/3.2 at FR and this may be the first time I've seen him on a 6max table. He was a losing player but he's either got better recently or is on a heater as he's winning at 23bb over his last 13k hands. He's awkward to play against postflop due to being so random at times and lately he always seems to have it when I'm in a hand against him so the fact I didn't get his stack here was annoying


Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (6 handed) - Full Tilt Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com/

SB ($35.63)
BB ($38.41)
UTG ($12.67)
Hero (MP) ($26.92)
CO ($37.88)
Button ($27.49)

Preflop: Hero is MP with A, A
1 fold, Hero raises to $0.75, 2 folds, SB calls $0.65, 1 fold

Flop: ($1.75) 4, 5, 10 (2 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $1.22, SB calls $1.22

Turn: ($4.19) 4 (2 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $2.93, SB calls $2.93

River: ($10.05) 10 (2 players)
SB checks, Hero checks

Total pot: $10.05 | Rake: $0.50

SB had K, K (two pair, Kings and tens).
Hero had A, A (two pair, Aces and tens).
Outcome: Hero won $9.55

CO ($32.10)
Button ($8.34)
SB ($25)
BB ($25)
Hero (UTG) ($33.54)
MP ($39.26)

Preflop: Hero is UTG with 8, 9
Hero raises to $0.75, MP calls $0.75, 4 folds

Flop: ($1.85) 10, K, 8 (2 players)
Hero checks, MP checks

Turn: ($1.85) 7 (2 players)
Hero checks, MP bets $1.38, Hero calls $1.38

River: ($4.61) 4 (2 players)
Hero checks, MP bets $3.45, Hero calls $3.45

Total pot: $11.51 | Rake: $0.57


Hero had 8, 9 (one pair, eights).
MP had A, J (high card, Ace).
Outcome: Hero won $10.94

Villain: note to self: unbluffable calling station to my right
Villain: sry, wrote that the wrong place


Not a bad reputation to have

Thought villain was unlikely to have a King and then I couldn't see what he'd be going for 2 streets of value with when Tx and possibly even some weak Kx are in my calling range. So it looked like air.

Re: Finally moving on up?

Start of year rungood continues. This is still 25nl



With regards to moving up to 50nl I've been looking at some options to improve my play as I still feel like a noob at 6max despite my results there so far (fish on a heater?)



So I may have an announcement in a couple of days.
