As of this post I have about 4.5 million chips and this isn’t bad, I am ranked 5,000 out of a site with around 500,000 active players and I am still a relatively new player. But I can sort of feel like I am almost reaching my ceiling of stakes and bankroll if I continue to play my current strategy. I play 100/200 and 200/400 and 50k tournaments, while playing a 100k about once a week and sat to 250k to try to get my feet wet with high stakes.
While I am happy with how far I have come on this site in the past 9 months, I want to keep going and reach higher and higher stakes and higher levels of play and I feel like I am stuck where I am now. If I cannot increase my ROI and improve my skills, I think 50ks and 100ks are the maximum I can play, but I strive to play more and better games. What strategies do you suggest for my games?
I feel like I play pretty solid poker although I can’t know for sure. I don’t limp a whole lot unless others limp before me. I bluff, but not a lot, mainly I make small bets postflop when I am the preflop aggressor because they call less than the minimum defense frequency Ex if I bet 1/3 pot, they need to call 75% of their range which players do not do. I also sometimes go all-in with marginal hands when I am short or I bluff in the small blind when it folds to me. There are some other times I bluff, but only if I think it is right and I am not a maniac 999/1000 hands I play. What can I do to get better? What is a tactic that you guys use that you think most players do not? I recently got a new poker book acceling at tough no limit holdem games and after that I am going to read mastering small stakes no limit holdem. What advice do players like you guys have? I feel like I am missing something that some other players get. What is it? Maybe this is just how it is and getting a good bankroll is just a long grind. I am open to any/all advice.
