That's an impressive record unfortunately I don't think I'll ever get any where near that won't be for the lack of trying. I mainly play $0.50/$1.00 nl cash games and an area I need to improve quickly is Reading Player's which is something I really struggle with. I write down any starting hands I see from other players at the table what kind of thing's should I be looking out for and more importantly how should I apply them to my game? Any advice will be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance.

A good start would be to at least start tracking how often they see the flop and how often they raise pre-flop vs post flop and if they see flop, how often they see all the way to river. See less hands than your opponents and you will have better hands than they when you are in. From the flop-see percentage and pre-flop raise you can determine how good pockets they tend to play.

BMW, do you only play the big limits now?? I thought I saw you play some small stuff like 1/2 the other day. Thought maybe I played against you. Just wondering what type of bankroll you are carrying to multitable those big limits. I was also wondering if you prefer to come to the table with a full stack or if you bring a partial stack to the table? I usually bring a half stack and that has worked for me when building my bankroll. Am very interested in your response.

The lowest i play is 2-4nl because there isn't enough high stakes game running on cd, haven't played 1-2 in about 2 years. I have about a 100k roll but that is excessive, at 1-2nl and under i would recommend a 20 buy in rule, between 2-4 and 3-6nl 30 buy in, and 5-10 and over i would recommend 50 buy ins, Higher you go more variance . I bring a full stack, and reload every dollard that im down, i am really tryng to maximize my wins, but there is very profitable short stack strategy it just doesn't go with my style very well.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance. good question, i think this is pretty complex question but for the most part you are tryng to pick up betting patterns what he does when he has a big hand,and what he does when hes weaker. When you are faced with making a big call look back at the hand and ask yourself what hands beat you and would he play those hands the way he did, if i can't put the puzzle together it usually means its a bluff and i will call him. When you are facing a river call look at the pot odds for example if its 3-1 , remember that you only need to be right 1 time on 3 for your call to be profitable. SO basically you want you're call to be USUALLy right not all the time. Sometimes you just gotta pay him off. Look at the hands you can beat and the hands that beat you . If you could logically beat alot of hands that would make the bet then call.

hi bmw, what i really struggle with is putting my opponent on a range of hands he could hold. i always try to analyse betting patterns etc even (and especially) when i'm not involved in a hand, but it seems very hard to acquire the ablility to read opponents correctly (also because on the microstakes i play, there are lots of donkeys who are totally unreadable). what can i do to improve this skill? is it just about practice or are there special hints 'n' clues that i could use in order to facilitate this?
