So I was having a normal night, you know, QQ vs 77, out of my MTT.. couple two outer rivers.. that kind of stuff. Even misplayed a hand or two and got lucky and sucked out. So I am down to 10$ on one table and I make a decision. I am going to practice aggression. So I decide if I am going to play two cards I am going to raise. I am also going to c-bet. The idea is two fold. Not unique. JJ calls it Wes style. Basically it makes me do two things. Either have good cards or have good position. I am not too interested in raising KTo in EP where I limp with it sometimes. It also makes me stick to good position with hands like 24h, etc..
So what did I learn? I am not sure. It worked well. I went on a +60$ run in a very short time. Somewhat due to cards. Partially due to JJ. Also I took down alot of 2$ pots that were 1-3 way with semi-bluff c-bets. I was willing to drop these hands if I got resistance but more times than not people just folded flops when an Ace or King hit. Those hands allowed me to add $10 to my stack and when I hit a nice hand with JJ I was able to take full advantage and stack him good.
I will continue to experiment. I think it takes HUGE reads on your opponents to pull this off. Some people will just never fold. You need to identify the right people to play this way against. Especially at the donkey-call-with-any-pair level of Poker I am stuck at.
