Are you using Poker Tracker 3 (or similar software?)

What kind of stats do you have? Are you playing full ring or short handed?

I played limit professionally for a bit over a year, and I can say that sometimes you hit a bad day- but usually a bad day looks like roughly between -30 and - 50 BB. Where are your losses coming from? Are they tilt related or just variance?

Let me know and I will try to prescribe some medicine :)

didnt expect to get such good replies so quick ... would like to say thanks first ... i think im a decent player ... i think im crap at no limit but at limit i think im decent ... but i seriously get the feeling the sites make u lucky and give u streaks? u guys agree? my vpip is about 30+/- and i multi table abt 5-8 tables. i wanna know do u guys play 6 max tables coz thats mostly the only tables available to multi table... and what starting hands to u guys reccomend playing? also do u ALWAYS top up the small blinds? and also do u call with over cards? for example u have AK flop comes 459 rainbow? 4 pple in the pot ... some one bets out... do u call? thanks alot for the help guys!

For Limit, I am more of a full ring specialist - but at asiapokeracademy, Dr.Eldoradon is a short handed limit specialist. If you post there, he can probably give you better advice than i can- but i will try anyway:

Ok, first, %30 VPIP is probably a little too loose (but only slightly)
Starting hands also depend on position, but here is a rough idea:
Early- 99-AA, ATs+, AJo+,KQs, JTs
Middle- Add ATo, Axs, add suited connectors down to 76s
Late- add a bunch of hands, steal blinds liberally if your opponents are not fighting back

For the small blind, top up if:
1) There hasn't been a raise. Play conservatively against a raise, as you will be out of position the rest of the hand and your opponent has indicated strength
2) You have a hand which has a lot of post flop value to make a strong hand (connected cards, suited cards like Kxs)
3) Many people have limped into the pot, giving you good implied odds

for example u have AK flop comes 459 rainbow? 4 pple in the pot ... some one bets out... do u call?


I don't call often against 3 opponents here - unless I have position and close the betting. In these multi-way pots, your hand can be dominated by A4, A5, A9, K9, K5, K4. They might have two pair like 45 and you are drawing dead if they flopped a monster like a set. Against 3 opponents, I think you can find a better spot for your money. If I do decide to play it, I probably raise and try to represent a stronger hand. Calling is often a pretty worthless play in limit SH. Raise or fold is the mantra.

Good Luck !

playing the hands u suggested - is that for short handed or full ring? if so that will increase my vpip to like 40 probably? also do u ALWAYS come in raising? i read somewhere limping pre flop is a horrible play? what do u think? also for 50c/$1 wat do u recommend for a buyin to each table? thanks alot!

The reason why you win 3-4 days in a row and then big losing days for next 2 days is that the rake on smaller limit are too high. 4-5bb/100 on the rake alone if you play on site like ipoker so if you break even there,you are already huge winner 5bb/100.

The hands I recommended would be roughly 20-30% I would imagine - no way 40 though

I recommend always coming in with a raise if you are first to enter a pot. Open limping in limit essentially accomplishes nothing. Especially if your table is tight, open limping is a mistake. In many cases, you end up giving the Big Blind a free look at a flop when you would have taken down the blind money had you raised. It also helps you disguise your range, because you are playing [Ad] [Ac] , [8c] [8h] , and sometimes even [7h] [6h] in the same way. This will keep your opponents guessing, which is good.

For your buy-in, as long as you have enough to cover a raise, re-raise, and cap on every street, you are fine. Stack size isn't important in Limit, so long as you have enough to bet and raise the maximum on every street. (If you have the nuts and someone has an extremely strong second best hand, you want to gain the maximum!) But whether you sit down with $200 or $5,000, is a moot point

Good luck!

Poker is “big business” now, attracting millions of players from all over the world who want to play and make money. Most of them, though, lose LOTS of money over and over, and seldom ever actually win it all back

One of the most crucial skills to learn in a game of Full Tilt poker is to avoid some deadly mistakes that can turn your poker game in to a disaster. There are a lot of blunders that a poker player may make during the game. These include bad beats along with a lot others.
