Maximizing my profit...

I am saving my preflop and flop play for my coach, but this week I want to concentrate on maximizing the value of each hand. I think I am betting my monsters too strongly and need to pull back a bit. I guess I get afraid that I will either get drawn out on or will not build a big enough pot. Tonight, assuming I get to play, I will start pulling back slightly on my big hands and see if I start to get more money in the pot.

I think this is in large part due to the negative variance I was going through. When you feel your big hands are very vulnerable, you tend to bet them more aggressively or possibly more passively. In either case, you are either not maximizing the value of your hand, or not properly protecting it.

I have been able to change up my play a bit. I have been varying my betting/calling ranges and have made some interesting plays with absolutely nothing. I have had some solid success employing a few different moves and repping strong hands. I am excited to log some hands tonight.
