    Hey sunil786,

    You can get lot's of help here at PSO. Specifically with, live training and the hand analysis forums. The mods can point you in the right direction.

    I know how you are feeling because I think it's impossible without a huge volume of hands to be profitable at these nano stakes. Volume = 10,000 hands or more...

    It is possible to win one pot...

    and after 10K hands played over a month I am just up about $8 so there is no quick fix. At 2NL there is no cash machine.

      Just by clicking at the video section here at pso and searching 2nl, you are going to find many interesting videos on the subject.
      My main advice for 2nl would be to play your hands face up, tight and don't bluff much, since people call a lot more often.
      Good luck!

        Hi sunil786!

        GL at 2NL! Winning is definately possible. Dave gave me some good advice when I first started out. Now I'll pass it on to you.

        1. Don't bluff!
        2. Don't pay off!
        3. Value bet, value bet, value bet!

        Dave explains these points in post #70 here.

        Stick to a tight starting range. Then before make any bet/raise, always ask yourself: "Am I betting for value?"

        As the others pointed out, there are plenty of excellent videos showing how to beat 2NL. Also, stick with 2NL until you are beating it. Higher stakes only get tougher. Put in the effort to improve your game and to make smart decisions and the results will follow

        GL and have fun at the tables!

                In $2NL when people bet big they have it nearly all of the time Most at this level won't consider bluffing etc. There are some great videos in the PSO archive, just search "Cash game" or "2NL"

                You should play TAG and never try to bluff at this level. If you've got a premium and are against a calling station, if the board hits him in any way he will continue in the hand so its ok to make big value bets

                Keep at it and you'll conquer it and move up
                Not much advice but GL and take down the donks

                  Disagree about not bluffing but there's certainly a time and place to do so. I'd mix up betting into draws with some made hands.

                  There are many bad regs at micro stakes, identify them. Table selection is also a key. Go for a table with a hgih VPiP and high pot. Chase bad players.
