Ways to improve...
This is what I need to work on. I haven't done it over a week yet bet I am actively looking for these spots in my sessions to take advantage of.
What I gather that these will do for me:
1. In the long run, it helps me get paid off more when players see I don't rarely bet rivers, I USUALLY bet them. when it works the percentage of times when I have air, it adds to my bottom line nicely.
2. Along the lines of 1, you almost have to pay me off when I have it and they have a 2nd best hand.
3. Turn hands in bluffs sometimes in the right spots?
Value bet hands like M.P. and stuff vs. the right players?
For the longest, I would check B.P. A high, even M.P. sometimes... even HU. Terrible, I know, but I was a nit for a long time. I was scared of every scare card when significant pressure was applied. I remember how that felt, so that helps a ton when I have trouble working up the courage to bet in these spots myself.
I'm just trying to get some examples so I know EXACTLY what to look for. What do ya'll think? I ask b/c I'm probably only seeing some of the positive effects it can have and am missing some completely. The more I know it does for me, the more I'll do it. It's been on my mind constantly. Thanks in advance.
