id at least go by buddy list, the pot size is almost useless from my experience and never up to date

usually about 4 orbits to decide if its a good table

things to look for
how many people call raises oop, especially limp calling. what hands are being shown down, are people calling a lot, are people raising too much or too little.




following that, how important do you think table selection actually is at SSNL? (NL$200 and under).

not that important in terms of winning , but u will win more with better table selection. but u should win regardless because there arent rly any hard games at nl 200.

at nl 200 most of my money came from donkeys who are 60/5 etc. players who just call down.

at nl 400 tho most of my money comes from tag players, they are RLY bad.

they call tons of raises with no regard to position just like donkeys, the key is where donkeys check fold flop when they miss the tags try to outplay you every hand, push u off whatever it is u have with no regard to the board or how you have been playing, they dont seem to have any understanding of when or why they are 3 betting, they will reraise you and when u repop it they are almost always going all in with whatever it is they have(it was j5o as i was winding down my session 15 minutes ago for example), they try to make far too many plays, and when u call their bluff they just blindly keep pushing their bluff/crap hand. they play terrible post flop after callign a raise, pretty much when they have better than a high they are check raising the flop 100% of the time and if u call check fold turn. 10% of the time they actually have a hand and might check raise the turn again. if they call ur flop bet and u check behind on turn they pot it into you with virtually anything ALL the time, if they have middle pair u check behind on turn with top two for example, board pairs giving you a boat, they pot it into you u go all in they are calling here very often as they think they are pros and u are obviously bluffing because they dont get outplayed. i could go on but i think u get the point.

btw if any of you start playing nl 400 at party, add crillo555 to your buddylist, that guy is an atm machine

What books have you read, Hov, that help the most with NL ring play (6-max in particular)?

the best nl book is nltap, bought supersystem 2 found it utterly worthless, hoh 1 is good for the basics, but volume 2 doesnt rly have any info that will help in cash games. also top should be read by everyone who wants to become good

i own and have read the following books

holdem for advanced players
small stakes holdem
theory of poker
hoh 1 and 2
nl theory and practice
super system 2
