  • Schnech's journey from 2NL to 100NL 6max cash

    Hi guys,

    Shortly I will start a blog here at PSO (as soon as my first post will be approved by the mods).

    I will talk about my way from 2NL up to 100NL in 6max cash games. I was inspired by xflixx here and I really want to share my experience with you guys. Also I really want to get into discussions, strategies and talk about how to adapt to moving up in limits.

    Right now I got up to 16NL and will take shots at 20NL in the near future.

    I don't use a HUD at the moment, but planning on doing so asap.

    In this thread I will post my new posts, interesting hand (that aren't enough for a new blog post) and discuss strategies with you guys. I also really want to give advice to ppl just starting with 2NL or 5NL 6max games, so don't hesitate to ask questions.

    I hope that this is of any interest or help for some of you guys!

    Greetings
    Schnech

        Thanks raiser!

        Yeah the graph is superb at the moment, but I know that it will flat again somehow. But I am mentally prepared for marginal sessions.

        Greets,
        Schnech

          Nice job Schnech, keep it up

          Just a suggestion, get yourself HM2 or PT3
          The numbers and graphs on that site are way off
          I've been tracking their numbers with my PT3 numbers since Jan 1st, 2012

          April
          Site 4,404 hands and -$16.07, PT3 5,810 hands and $249.16
          Year
          Site 61,023 hands and -$957.64, PT3 74,051 and $731.69
          Since day 1
          Site 167,155 hands played and -$5,337, PT3 190,363 and -$3131.44

          They seem to forget 20% of the hands played
          Good luck

              @Sandtrap: Yeah definitely have to do that. Any preference? And can I use one key for both Windows and Mac?

              @TrustySam: Thanks man! Well I donked around 2NL for over 150k hands, so don't even start worrying about that. 2NL seems easy, but there are many stepstones. Do you have any specific problem you want me to talk about in a blog post? I will try to cover that.

                You can use only one computer for your data, just transpose the HH from one computer to the other. As for which one??????? I use PT3 and I'm very happy, check out the forum, there was a thread on the subject of which one is better (they are both good) umbup:

                  Hey, thanks! umbup: I've only played about 2000 hands so far (LOL!) so I'm still getting my feet wet, but so far blinds stealing and blind defense is kind of an interesting area. You have any interesting tricks?

                    @Sandtrap: Downloaded the PT3 trial yesterday. Have to get used to the HUD. If I tile my 6 tables the HUD is huge on the tables Well, have to design it a bit tonight.

                    @Trusty: I will try to cover it in the future blog post.

                        I think I have seen you yesterday AceKindBlows. Maybe also lost a big one vs. you, but I hope not. Yesterday was an up&down day at 16 NL.

                          It wasn't that big, I pulled kind of a monkey-ish bluff (@10NL a few days ago) /w A-10 and showed it (like a dumbass). Still, seems like I could learn a thing or two from your example you're really crushing!

                          (Do you remember the hand? Was very curious as to what you were holding - I actually played the hand really weirdly a.k.a badly :p was trying to rep a monster but ultimately I think I just got lucky and you were holding AK high, maybe I'm wrong though.)

                            Do you maybe have it somewhere in your pt3 or hm? Would be really interested in that.

                            If you bluffed me there - nice hand sir!

                              Hey guys, just finished my session for today. Played about 1.5k hands and I am up about 2.5 buyins for 16NL. Pretty happy with my game. Many standard spots, but some interesting ones aswell. What I will also do in the next days, is to prepare some postings for my blog her on PSO. Just to give a slight overview, what I will cover, here is my plan: Basics #1 - Bankroll Management Basics #2 - Table Selection Basics #3 - Position Basics #4 - Opening Pots Basics #5 - Blind stealing Basics #6 - Mediocre hands - When to bet, when to fold These are just 6 topics I want to cover to begin with. I will continue the whole way with more on the "Basics" series, because I think they are crucial for beating the micros - also on 2NL. I know most of you guys know that stuff, I also did for about 100k hands, but I also did have to reread this and also watch many videos, to really understand what this means. I can assure all of you, that I won't cover that many stats and data in my blogposts - like "if they have a vp$ip of XYZ, you have to do that" - because I didn't use a hud for myself for a long time. I think it is more important to generally understand these things and also - the MOST important thing - to focus on the players at the table. A hud can help you, but what's more reliable is your own read and concentration. Trust me! So, since everyone always post their bad beats - I also have one for you. But I sucked out on this one. But actually, I don't even think I played this hand totally wrong - maybe a bit lose. But if I haven't hit that river, those cards were in the muck pretty pretty fast. Good night! Schnech
