Playing at NL2 lately has been quite a change for me. The adjustment period has been, well, strange, I guess would be the optimal word.
The level of play between NL2 and NL50 is quite different and I’ve had to severly adjust my style of play to accomodate the change.
There is one thing that I’ve learned at this level and that’s most of the people playing at this level 3-bet way too light and will call 4-bets with much worse than what I’m holding.
So, with this discovery, if I raise pre-flop with AA, KK, AKs, AKo (and sometimes AQs or QQ, depending on the player), and I get 3-bet, I’m just going to 4-bet shove.
Most of the time, I’m going to get called with much worse.
Obviously, like with anything in poker, this isn’t always going to work. Sometimes I’ll do this with my KK and they’ll turn up with AA. It happens.
But, for the most part, and, again, depending on the player, I’ll 4-bet shove my premium hands in NL2 all day and will almost always come out profitable.
