Well, now I play 6 tables at a time and think I can do this properly. Since I fold most hands anyways I usually don't have to play more than one or two tables at a time, at most three. I still have enough time to take my hand-strength in consideration, calculate pot-odds and count my outs. I realized that it is no idea to try to read theese players, as they all play their own type of poker.

Up until now I made many small wins when playing and then busting on bluffs or getting donked. I stopped with that and now I leave the tables when I reach about 1.5x buy-in and the blinds are about to hit me. I played about 3500 hands or so on the micros the last weeks (mainly .02/.04) and studied my game to come up to this.

I think it will start going a bit faster for me now, as I reached a point where I can start full-stacking .02/.04 instead of playing SSS.

@OP

Do I understand this phrase correctly:

"I realized that it is no idea to try to read theese players, as they all play their own type of poker."

Are you saying they all play differently so I have decided to play them all the same way Confused

No, I am saying that if you put to much thought in a .01/.02 game you will do alot of thinking you don't have to.

Of course you can try to take some mental notes (which I do sometimes) and look at their betting-patterns. I am just saying that many people on theese stakes don't care if they have a bad hand (low pair, bad odds) , they will call you anyways. I have learned to make sure I have the best hand before pushing the all-in button, and take it easy on the pre-flop shoves as you for some reason never get called pre-flop (Okay sometimes, but only by hands like AA and KK) .

What I am trying to say is that it will be hard to find abc-poker and abc-play around here, you can indeed see some patterns, but thinking that they will be playing the way they should is not right as they wont. If you bet enough to give a flush-draw odds to fold, you will most likely get called

Edit: Which makes bluffing really hard and stupid

Wow 50K is a big goal to be shooting for, but achievable, although it will take atleast a year to break the 5K mark.
I have my own challenge going as we speak although not quite as ambitious, im going for the 1K challenge. Started on FTP with $0 & took down a first place in the UK freeroll for $15, almost 3 months later & thousands & thousands of hands later (&the added headache of playing micro donks) I'm up to $310... although it took me forever and a century to break the $100 mark since things were moving so slow at NL2/NL5... but now at NL10 ive made a good 10+BI's in 2 weeks so it only now feels like things are moving noticeably quicker.
OH yeah the 180 man SNGs really help to if u can take down a first or 2nd place finish.

Ok, I'm a relatively new player, about 4 months.
But HOW do you play 25 tables at the same time???
8 monitors?
A giant flatscreen?
All on top of each other?
Some multitabling software I don't know about?

Just wondering... Question

$50,000, is a high bar to do in 1 year. U might not feel the pressure now, but come Aug or Sept and if your not at least at the halfway point, u could find yourself doing a lot of risky playing to try to achieve it.

That's about right...I don't think this kind of goals are good for ones morale. You should set realistic goals, or something with a margin of error - "lets see how much I can do until ...."

I hope you do get to that 50K mark but I don't know if you realize what you've got yourself into

Playing the devil's advocate here, but setting such harsh expectations for oneself usually does more wrong than right. I'd say you give yourself some slack and start with a more realistic goal...
Still, kudos if you achieve such a feat! Worship
