I mentioned in my previous post, I had some cash game training at a WPT Boot camp for No Limit Hold’em type of games.
As far as my progress goes, I was in the black for August, while my year-to-date is still in the red.
It appears that I am losing at a slower rate than I have previously.
My game still has some holes that I am trying to plug, such as recognizing when I might be beat by my opponent’s betting pattern.
Overall, I am more aggressive when I have good hands and am more selective about entering a pot with marginal hands.
I am entering a pot, either by betting, raising, or calling about 8% of all the hands I am dealt. I am calling only about 10 to 15% at the most and that is with drawing hands when others have already limped in before me.
What is your strategy for entering a pot? When you are first to decide, do you ever just call?
