I've been play playing a ton of low/micro limit of late, and with the "poker ban," my money wound up on Full Tilt. Now I may be the last person on the planet to pick up pokertracker, but I've logged just over 6000 hands within the last month. During the last 4500 hands or so, I have been running horribly. I know... very small sample size, variance, etc. The sad thing was, during this time, I felt like I couldn't play any better. I even have that eagle rating
So I reviewed my stats and the hands I was losing 3 or 4 BB+. I found some small leaks, but most of the hands I was losing were bad beats. After replaying them, while seeing the villain's cards, I would play most of these hands the same way. Then it hit me. It might not be the hands I'm losing. It appears that most of the hands that I win are usually small pots. Now although this is .25-.50 and .5-1, these tables are fairly tight. I've gone on runs where I've won 18 out of 100 hands (I raise/they fold) and I've barely shown a profit. If you've been patient enough to read this, I was wondering ...1. Can a table be too tight to beat no matter how well you play ?2. Has anyone had sustained success at these limits at FT? PS: I just played one 3-table session at Stars .25-.50 and won more on each table than I have in any session in the last two weeks at FT. If this isn't the answer, then I'll just admit that ISAP and play freerolls.Thank you.

See, that's what I like about poker. Even the mildly retarded can play.
