Is it possible to practice table selection at 10NL? I'm still trying to determine the answer on this one. Yesterday, I decided expirement a little bet.
I opened up my first table and immediately sat down. But didn't post for the first two orbits. Data mine on a very limited scale but it did give me an indication of who the superfish were at this table. Bought in with an idea of what I was getting into. Had a target two seats to my right. Super lag. Something like 76/10/5. In other words, playing almost any hand at any time. Super aggressive bluffer post flop. Stacked him on about the 4th hand. The reason why? Because I was already aware of his tendencies just because I was patient enough to wait 2 orbits before posting.
I also datamined 4 more tables while I started playing my first one. As I got comfortable with my first table, I added a second table where players were mostly full-stacked. Good results.
After feeling comfortable with my reads there, I added another table. Small goof when I bluffed with 22 on the turn on a QT9 two heart board. Got called by AK. Which spiked his A on the river. Will have to find the actual HH for you all to laugh at...errr with me about.
Was very happy with my results. Positive 3 buy-ins. Will have to keep it going. Make sure you all join in the RAZZ tourneyhosted by NYRambler tonight. Low buy-in. Lotsa fun. I'm going to try to be there, if the fiance allows it...
