What has changed?

Not sure whats changed in my game i really don't. these are some posts from the past i saw today and now play low level $5 HUSNG and struggle and struggle at $0.02 - $0.04 cash...

From a few years ago:

Well i was getting a bit bored playing heads up all the time so i decided to play some cash games on pokerstars.

I sat at a 6 seater $2-$4 table and bought in for the maximum of $400. I had this up quite quickly to around $660 when this hand happened...

Yesterday i managed to blow $900 on stars so i fired up Virgin today and played some $2-$4 and $3-$6 and am $950 up for the day..


and

Virgin $2-$4
Well i was up about $1000 yesterday on Virgin $2-$4 cash. I have stopped playing today about $250 up.

I was doing much better and was about $850 up when i got dealt ace 3.. I i raised from the small blind and the big blind called..

Flop 33 A..

basically all the chips went in and he spiked a king on the river to make a bigger full house.. That was a $900 pot so if i win that i'm well up but these things happen..

A $250 profit for the day is fine by me...

I seem to find the $2-$4 tables easier to play then the lower limts as there are less idiots and everything seems to be going well at the moment...

UPDATE - JUST AFTER WRITING THIS WON A BIG POT WITH TRIP 3'S NOW $527 UP FOR THE DAY!!

and

I've actually noticed that i seem to be winning well at the higher stakes Heads up sit and go's.

I've been playing on Full tilt and pokerstars and been playing anywhere from $50 - $220 games.

and

I received an email from Virgin Poker today about the prize i won to the WSOP.

and this is the best:

I entered the Coral $20,000 guranteed with 823 entrants and 1 rebuy/add on allowed.

6 hours later, prize pool of $26,140 i won $6274 coming in 1st...

Same here mate, even as I started bloggin was playing much higher, but with no BRM and having loads of fun and winning, now using BRM I struggle at the Micro's and seem to have lost the love for the game?

As Daly says in general people are better, loads more training tools/sites/stats to use out there, making players more exploitable.

If I had the time I'd go back to MTT's and go back to having less asspirations due to variance and really enjoy the wins/cashes.
