Well the past 2 days have been pretty close to a bust but I still have my roll. think I only played almost 1000 hands in the past 2 days. I got pretty close to losing my stack. I think I was trying to play to good for myself. let's just say I was trying to be a nit. lol. There were more than a few hands where I thot that I had my opponents crushed, Well I did, but its always the dirty chasers that just won't let go of their weak str8 and flush draws. and what i mean by weak is, The Gut shot straight draw, and the back door flush draw. those kinds of players just piss me off, that landed me pretty close to losing my change, So I changed my game plan. I started to play as dirty as the next guy. my roll was down to $0.63. I am the kind of player that just wont limp into a pot, thats the difference from them and me. I won't limp into, no I never limp into a pot that i know that I can take down. even with a garbage hand like 82 off 7 2 off. well anyways I started to play any 2 cards. with the 3x or 2.5x the BB. and almost never i'd get reraised. and if I did get reraised, it would only be the minimum, giving me a chance to see the flop. Somethimes I'd flop a total monster and the players holding AA, KK, QQ, and AK just cant fold, even when AK whiffs they just keep on playing like its an unbeatable hand, and check the river and raise the river they call. so from that 63 cents I went back up to close to 4 bucks again. so my strategy is umm ctually I have no strategy. It comes to me when I am there. but I will be cutting back to just a couple tables just to get my bearings back. Cuz I think I was kind of tilty, Got Aces Cracked, Kings Shot down, by Ace rag, Queens beaten By JJ and JJ crushed by 10 10 on the river. but thats part of the game. I know that I have crushed all those hands by cards that aren't even supposed to be held by a player that thinks he can play poker. lol But I am there to bust up big hands with the smaller cards, And I guess thats what the next player is planning on doing to me. So I am just gonna play the way I play and do What I can do. And so On. Sorry about not really updating on my situation at the moment. But I kinda did.
Next Time I post up something I will put up my hand stats about my next session which is gonna be soon. Play a lil bit of the 1c-2c. so If your a mobber and you see me at your table let me know so I can leave. lol only if you ever read my posts. haha some of you guys are probably in a lil bot higher stakes then I am but Good luck to you gys.....
Belive me - many of us are also playing NL2 or even are at freeroll stage. But well, it doesn't matter what you play, what matters is how you play.
Also it would be nice if you would stick to one blog thread, because now you started like millions of them and it's a little bit annoying. Thanks in advance.
Also I wouldn't play NL2 with $4 in bankroll, really. Even playing with something called short stack strategy (SSS) it's not good bankroll managment.
And as for limping - yep, sure, almost never open limp, sometimes it's good when you hold 22 in UTG, it's easier to call standard raise with that kind of hand than a 3-bet, because you want to flop set and after standard 3-bet you almost always don't have any odds for hitting set, so it's not like you always have to raise or fold.

i dont see why you have to be a d**k about him making a new thread, he might not have found his old one but on the real if you are playing shortstacked you should hope you have some good postflop game, know when to get out and when you stay in and you should be fine, if i was you id grind just 1-2 tables at the most with only 4$ roll

Yep, I bet a lot of people can't find his topic when they have 5 of them in the top 7 threads Also if you want to say something and call me a d**k then read the rules of the forum first, it clearly says:
* Do NOT create more than one "blog thread". Stick to your own thread for posting your blog entries. If you start creating more than one thread, it will be very confusing for the readers to follow your progress and keep up with your posts.

i enjoyed reading his blogs and now you have skeered him away comeon nish get back here with your updates tomorrow, dont be bothered by some people's comments. im sure all comments were in good spirit, so dont stop posting
Lol, of course I never meant that you should stop posting I just mean that you should stick to for example this single one thread and update it daily, because when you open a new thread every day then the "Blogs" forum is a completely mess.
Also blogging helps you to track your game in some way, so it's good for you and you should post, but once again - post in one thread, like I do it or like mahdrof is doing it. If you don't know what I mean then take a look:

yeah nish that was a good read, you stay on here mate, u have inspired me to write one for next week when i get paid, gonna have a $20 bankroll and follow phil hellmuths top ten hands only, alot of discipline involved tho lol
seriously great read tho, ignore the negative comments
Well, so you are trying to tell me, that if I'm a newcomer on some forum then rules don't apply to me? I asked him to stick to single one thread, because everyone does so, why would it be different in that case, huh?
So I should bow down on my knees and beg him to respect the rules? Because that's the only less "rude" way to say it than "it would be nice" + "thanks in advance" that I know. Everything else are just facts - it's annoying when someone opens new thread every day or even twice a day in blogs, instead of posting it in one thread. It's easier to follow blog when you have everything in one thread, not in five of them and also it's easier to find other blogs.
But well, it's just mine & BRM's stupid opinion, very rude by the way, so why should anyone respect it?
PS Now you can say that I'm rude, feel free to do it
