I have always felt as a women that doesnt have blonde hair or big boobs on constant display it was harder for me to get value when I bet. My coach used to sit behind me and see how player after player would fold to me yet call a guy.
Then I see all the posts that Claire has done and I realized I really needed to start turning up the agression. I should be able to get away with more and It should also set the stage for getting value from other players who have finally " had it" with my constant pressure. The problem for them is that I have control of the pot and can put them on ranges whereis they are not doing the same.
So over the last few months I have yet again altered my game. culminating with my play last night. I started out with a plan to iso more three bet in good squeeze spots and raise ootb with hands like kj+ in limped pots. not only did it work it was alot more fun the play!
one donk did get me for a river bet ( hero calling a bit too much recently) when he called my threebet to his raise when i had JJ and he had K9 sooted checked to river on AK9 47 board and he bet 75 into the 110 pot. I paid him off. but other than that I am really excited to play some more!
I even had a fish tell the whole table I was a "bluffer".
