All,

I'm VERY drunk. I just wanted to say that as someone who has experienced the difference at the higher levels, that this post is extremely important. AJ knows his [censored], and we should all keep an open ear. Ok, back to annoying girls on AIM. gl.

Yes the progression.

C-bet - response - float.

Float - response - second barrel...

3rd barrel and multi-street floats are inevitable - for and against good thinking players. I'll stick to the donkey's who still haven't figured out the c-bet response and continue taking their money.

Re: Opening Up Your Eyes and Your Game (very long)

AJ,

Recently, I was asking some of the higher stakes players about the differences between higher limits and small-medium stakes. I was basically wondering whether my tight style would work at higher levels, and how much I would have to change to beat the highest limits if and when I move up. Unfortunately, I didnt get much info, either intentionally or because it was tough to put into words.

This post answered a lot of what I was asking, mainly preflop standards for reraising and aggressiveness postflop. Great post, you've helped me a ton before I've even played a hand at the higher limits.

Thanks.

Re: Opening Up Your Eyes and Your Game (very long)

AJ, did you start posting on 2+2 in the mtt forums? i definitely remember you name with not manyposts around the mtt forum like a year ago, and not that you weren't a good poster, but this absolutely blew me away, and i'm very impressed with how far you've come. Seriously sick post, very happy someone just bumped this.

- Ray

Re: Opening Up Your Eyes and Your Game (very long)

Just to clarify the stats quoted - I've always assumed this till now - When you quote x/y

x = VP$ip %
y = Raised preflop

Is that right?

Re: Opening Up Your Eyes and Your Game (very long)

"For those that are playing 400NL+ (only because this stuff won't work if you get too low) and want to practice, move down a level to try it. The concepts should be the same but you can learn for half price. Then go back to your regular game and try it. You should immediately find your regular game a lot easier. "

I think this is key to AJ's post. Last year I moved up to the 3/6 nl on party without sufficient buy ins, and nearly killed my roll. Nevertheless, I've gone into uber mode using AJ's advice from my regular 2/4 to 1/2, and I think it is excellent. I'm very pleased. I can't wait to try it out more at 2/4.

Re: Opening Up Your Eyes and Your Game (very long)

Since this thread has been bumped and new people are stumbling on it, here is an updated view on what I wrote back then. As said there, all of this will still work like a charm vs the right people and in the right games. However, in other games this is very common knowledge and to beat the players stuck in this mode and not thinking past it you have to be a step or two ahead of them. Thinking (on the right level and about the right things, and actually applying) is a player's best weapon at this point, as so few players actually choose to do it while playing their fairly autopilot styles.
