dealing with a nitty table image
I've lately been finding myself a lot in the annoying position of running really badly, like folding 90%+ of my cards, or if I don't, missing the flop, and it makes it so my table image and my stats so nitty that on the rare occasions when I do have a hand, everyone else just folds. I try loosening my range but I find myself in a large number of marginal positions post-flop, which you warn us about, and I'm not advanced enough to consistently apply a LAG strategy. What is there, if anything, to be done in this situation?
What stakes do you play and why do assume everyone else has a HUD and is tracking your stats? People could be folding junk when your open-raise. Just because they're folding you shouldn't assume they've got a "read" on you.
At the micros most people are playing level 1 poker where they're playing their hand and not paying attention to other people's ranges.
I just play 5 and 10NL. I guess it was wrong for me to assume that everyone else is also using a HUD, and maybe it only seemed like they had a read on me. Perhaps my excessive cynicism at work. Am I maybe sitting at the wrong tables, and/or maybe just getting really unlucky?
Hello! When I was reviewing my stats from the past 2 weeks I noticed that I played about 1200 hands without a single all-in or any large pot.
Mainly because I didn't get a lot of playable hands, and when I finally got a premium pair for instance I got no action.
The positive thing is that I was break even for the period - which is not a bad result when you are card dead.
Just wanted to say that poker is not only about you getting good playable cards, but your opponents must have something as well in order for you to get action at the same time.
So just stick to playing a TAG style and you will be ok.
