Cash Table Issues  0   
I'm having big troubles winning at cash tables, right now i'm playing full tilt and i just can't do it... people make such high bets with nothing I just can't play against them. I seem to do fine in tournaments I only have issues with cash tables..... I think my problem is that i'm not aggresive enough, anybody tips ?

Sounds like you a little scared to put money in pots, or just have found bad tables.
But id say go to a small table or playchips if you are only used to sngs, its a tottaly diffrent game. find your style, image etc, then work from that.
aggresion is good, but not if you dont like to play aggresive (if you catch my drift)

Cashgame is a different planet.

Its hard to say something about it that accounts for all situations and limits. A bluff that works 1 out of ten times at a 50$ table can work 8 out of 10 times at the 200$ table.

Let me put it like this:

1) Loosen up your raising requirements for late positions, at the same time: tighten up your calling requirements for all positions except for the button.

2) Be the aggressor. Be first to bet.

3) Make a lot of Continuation bets, meaning: If you raised or got position and are up against 1 or 2 opponents, the flop doesnt help anyone in most of the cases.
( Attack orphan flops: if sbdy called your raise and the flop is 353, he`ll have a high card in most cases. )

4) DONT slowplay too much. If you flop a big hand, bet it. Bet out with top pair top kicker. Bet out with a set. Bet out with a flopped straight. If the people fold: sad. But only through betting you`ll get money into the pot PLUS its great for your image. Imagine you bet all streets and then show down a flopped set. That scares people from calling your Continuation Bets with Air.

5) Play within your limits.Dont play 100$ tables with a bankroll of 200$. Never be scared. Playing with scared money doesnt pay off.

6) The more shorthanded, the more semibluffing and bluffing is necessary and usual. For Beginners full handed is better. There you can more play your bread-and-butter hit to win game.

7) and, one of my favourite sentences: Dont overplay High pairs. The most read sentence in all these forums is: My AA got cracked by 56 suited! Pokerstars is cheating! blah blah... As soon as you ask when the money went in: people dont even remember it. Big Smile

Maby its best for you to start at full ring tables, and play very tigh.
Play the good hands agressive, fold the rest.

You can't fold your way into the money in a cash game. If the aggression is to high:
Don't play shorthanded. Controlled aggression is needed there. Move to full ring games, and try a short stack approach. Then you have a stack to blind ratio that is more common for a tourneyplayer. Your money will go in before or at the flop, and you can't be bet out of the pot on later streets by more aggressive opponents.

Thanks for all the tips !!
I actually think quit playing cash tables would be best but I have to clear a bonus and cash games is the best way, but I don't want to loose my bankroll for clearing the bonus Blink

Get a solid preflop strategy, specific range of cards from every pos and cbet cbet cbet. Stop thinking in $ and start thinking in big blinds. Raise allmost anything from CO+button and 3 bet light in these pos too.

No limit Hold'em cash is a betting game not a card game, if you dont have last bet/raise you have negative exspectations for the hand.

Edit: try for an hour to make it illegal for your self to call(so you can only bet or raise), in this way you force your self to decide wether your hand is strong enough to go with or not. When you got last bet/raise your in control of hand(psychology)+pot so take charge Smile

Really good point.

I remember moneymaker saying: If you cant raise it, fold it. While this is more true for limit poker than NL in general, DONT call in shorthanded games. If your hand is good enough to play it, raise it up!

Even if you have to fold it to a reraise, for example by a very tight player in position who has a raising range of [AA, JJ] [Aks, AQs], youve got information where you are in the hand.

Only exception are small pocket pairs utg. in my opinion.In late positions: raise with them too.

If you want to clear the bonus: Play limit poker.

Yes, I know, it can be boooooooring, but for the start you are going to face much easier decisions there.

Yep and when you light 3bet a TAG who's sitting OOP he will often call your 3bet to see flop and only hit that flop 30-40% of the time with his (AJs+/AQo+) so you'll often be able to take it on flop with a cbet Cool Though you have to look out for like 77-JJ.

And for those nice, but not little 4bets. Smile What you are suggesting is good in shorthanded games. Full ring the strenght of hands is usually higher. So light 3betting can easily backfire.

And one thing is for sure. Calling 3bets oop is burning money.

I only play 6max and allways have so when people talk cash I just asume we are talking 6max Tongue know absolutely nothing about fullring though I probably should. Heard someone say short ring is like fullring without the 3 most difficult positions to play.

I have the same problem playing on cash tables. I do pretty darn good playing in tournaments. I have swithched up and tried different methods on cash but no luck either.
