Micro Stakes Blasts From the Past

Episode #39 Q&A: Playing Online, Busting Out of the Micros and My PokerTracker 4 HUD – 3 listener questions answered about playing poker online, busting out of the micros and my own PokerTracker 4 HUD.

MED Monday #42: Finding Sweet Squeezes at the Micro Stakes – I discuss an article by Nathan “BlackRain79” Williams titled “Why You Need to Make the Squeeze Play More Often at Lower Stakes”

MED Idea: Don’t say “no” to easy squeezing money when you’ve got a strong hand.  Those callers are dead money, and if they can call your 3bet squeeze again with weaker hands, you’re making theoretical profits hand-over-fist with your value squeeze plays.

MED Action: In your next study session, filter in your database for the biggest pocket pairs separately and compare your win rates.  How much do you win with TT, JJ, QQ, KK and AA?  In this example hand, the 3bet squeeze could’ve earned Hero a 10.5 bb pot.  In one hand with JJ, he could’ve earned more than he does per hand with AA.

Up Next…

In episode #245, I’ll discuss using micro stakes aggression.

Until next time, study smart, play much and make your next session the best one yet.
