STAY TUNED FOR SEASON 2 OF STRATEGY IN ACTION, COMING SUMMER 2018
Goal: $6,000, 7/17
$1/$2 Net Win Rate
#11 – EMBRACING MISTAKES
Identifying, embracing and learning from a major mindset mistake.
#10 – EXPLOITING AGGRESSION
Using off-table study and strategic confidence to exploit aggressive players at $1/$2.
#9 – THINK FOR YOURSELF
Connecting the dots on poker strategy by thinking clearly about how to exploit weak players at the table to “get the fish to fold”.
#8 – EXPERIENCE
Playing our longest session ever and gaining valuable experience. Grinding back despite losing a BI from set-over-set.
#7 – QUALITY POKER & THE SOCIAL ASPECT
Had some profitable sessions on the WSOP 2016 Vegas trip, Red Chip Poker meetup was a blast.
#6 – PERSEVERANCE & PROCESS
Celebrating making it this far, looking to the long path ahead. Taking stock of our game and our thought process.
#5 – ONLINE STUDY & AGGRESSION
Bankroll no change
We use online poker as a study aide to hone our aggression without putting much of our bankroll at risk.
#4 – OPEN SIZING & LIFE TILT
As we successfully dial up our open raise size, we fall into the trap of life tilt and get stacked.
#3 – NOTE TAKING
We start taking detailed notes of hands to gain insight into how well (or poorly) we played them, and get feedback from the community.
#2 – PLAN AHEAD POKER
Thinking hands through ahead of time both on the table and off, we improve our decision-making process.
#1 – NEVER LIMP AND DON’T PAY PEOPLE OFF
Two simple concepts — never limping and avoiding paying people off — completely turn our game around.
INTRODUCTION & SMART GOALS
We start with a $1,500 bankroll and aim to grind it up to a healthy $6,000 bankroll for live $1/$2 NLHE.
