In a past life I was a profitable No Limit Texas Hold'em player on Full Tilt at the NL25 level (that's a dime and a quarter for blinds; the top... of microstakes :)). Between 2008-2010 I played just shy of 300,000 hands.

In 2010-2011 I played live poker for over 600 hours at 1-2 and 2-5 in Foxwoods, Las Vegas, and a few other casinos.

Since then (and since graduating college) I've moved on to another stage of my life, but still enjoy thinking and playing occasionally on weekends, when time permits.

comment Positions in Poker
Interesting, I agree with this, but I always add the Cutoff (CO) and Hijack (HJ) first (so a five player game is Dealer, Small blind, Big blind, Hijack, Cutoff). The reasoning is that with a 5 player game, the first position after the big blind acts a lot like the Hijack in a 9 player game, and not much like Under The Gun would act in a 9 player game.

comment What's the best book to read to understand this site?
It's a little against the idea of this site, but forumserver.twoplustwo.com/69/micro-stakes-pl-nl has people many FAQs and general strategy posts that should get you bootstrapped.

Hmm, it appears I'm out of touch with players at this limit.

Hmm, seems like it's been too long since playing real money online (USA), and I'm overestimating the player. Carry on...

I'm also not sure how the AF is calculated these days; I had thought the old algorithm was (bet or raise)/(call), which doesn't include folding, which means that we can't take it to mean "he always raises therefor he bluffs", we can only take it to mean "he raises rather than calling, therefor he plays draws quickly or not at all". But I may be dated on this stat.

I'm surprised at your preflop range; I wouldn't think it would be so top-heavy given stacks and both players positions. Possible though you are going off the fact that he is too inept an opponent to notice.

comment Interesting Spot in Penny Poker: Overpair vs Nit on Wet Board
I disagree that players this low aren't competent these days; seems like the .02/.04 players from today are the .10/.25 players from 3 years ago, who are the 1/2-3/6 players from a few years before that. Running 12/8 are pretty solid stats for full ring, if a little nitty, and that leads me to believe he's good enough to at least notice deep stacks and his position.

Thought process rather than conclusions.
