Now, the problem is, only playing against donks will only make you good enough to beat donks. Good or even decent players, just avoid them
"Holy crap, that player just 3-bet preflop, he must have aces or kings!"
Today, in a post UIGEA (US trade illegal bullshit anti-gambling online act) world, there are less fish but they're not by any means gone at SSNL. Gone however are the days where a 6-max table had 4 fish and 2 decent players, now at my full tilt tables it's hopefully a fish on a table, a couple nits and a bad loose aggressive. I sometimes get a few fish, but it's rare. Often I get no fish, and that's when the variance kicks in.
I'm having some huge swings in my terms. I remember playing PartyPoker back in the day and lost $400 at $100NL one day in a few hours and was just tilted off my rocker. Now I consider 5 buyins to be "stuck" and almost the norm.
It's not the same game it used to be when a man named Dikshit dealt the cards.
