Ok maybe this wont be some big long drawn out thing which goes off into tangents about sheds and club biscuits - but I just wanted to share some thoughts about my new approach this year.
I've cut down massively on big pots - in fact on Saturday I dont think I won/lost more than $4 on any one hand (10NL) which is pretty unusual. What this doesnt mean is that I've cut down on preflop aggression, if anything my 3bet %age has gone up but it generally means either I take the pot down there and then or with a flop cbet. What should be gone are the TPTK v set hands which I've been on the wrong end of too many times.
I'm definitely isolating weaker players IP more often. Maybe this is just luck by my seating but I do seem to be able to raise limpers OTB more often these days and........ then take down the pot with a cbet obviously . There are so many players who limp/call because they want to see a flop with that pretty looking 75s before folding on a KT3 rainbow board.
Passivity can mean anything but aggression often means good hand. I'm not saying I believe everyone who CR the flop or bets big on the river but in general its better to believe that these guys have what they're representing than calling them down. Yes this means I'm open to being bluffed more often but only up to a point. My theory is get some hands on someone first to establish how likely they are to bluff before committing yourself.
Finally, tight means not raising AJo UTG - even six handed. I'm much more disciplined pf than before - I can still raise the odd PP or SC from UTG but not those easily dominated Aces which play terribly OOP. In fact I'd go so far as to say position is nine tenths of the law since I'm much more likely to 3bet OTB with AJo than raise with it from earlier seats.
