A lot of times I will use my stack size to determine the cards I play pre-flop in a cash game.
Lately though, I've been thinking more about how the people at my table are playing while still taking their stack size into consideration.
Here's the thing.
I don't think most people I play against are very skilled. That is to say, the more I observe them the more I notice that a lot of these guys never change the way the play in regards to their stack until they get so low that their only move is to shove pre-flop.
That led me to believe that it's not going to be that profitable to open up my range a lot against people who are not competent enough to fold something like AJ or A10 suited out of position when I three bet them with suited connectors.
I think I'm going to play about 10,000 hands and play according to how my opponents are playing without turning the aggression up with a big stack if they're going to simply call anyways - common sense, no?
This post is basically a reminder to myself to exercise some of that at the tables.
I feel like I have a pretty solid poker mind with occasionally turns into total fluff when I sit down in front of a computer to play.
So, stop doing that.
I mean it.
