Hey guys...

It's been ages since I've played poker but the last week I have been playing a little bit of poker with some fantastic results in 5NL Zoom. So with a lot of commitments such as general living in Japan (from Australia), playing semi-pro American Football, training for said football, and a relatively new relationship; it looks like I'll get no more than 2 hours per night.

So it looks like this will be a little bit of a blog and update for my cash sessions but I will usually leave a question for those who read along to answer. The question is for those playing 2/5/10NL Zoom NLHE.
What style do you play against players who may just be playing for fun? Super aggro? Super tight? Trapping-focused?

Playing: 5NL Zoom, 2-3 Tables
Bankroll: $151.74
Goal: $400.00
Remaining: $248.26

After a 2-hour session, I lost quite a bit with a couple of bad beats where I was on the worst end of set vs set.

Another two hours and it looked like I was only going to break even until the last 10mins before getting paid off in two separate hands.
Unfortunately, I don't have any stats from before the $151 bankroll update but I do have some now so let's go through some...

Playing: 5NL Zoom, 2 Tables
Bankroll: $148.63
Session: $9.91
Goal: $400.00
Remaining: $251.37

Hands: 1,279

Won: $1.52
VPIP: 22.14%

CBet F (Success): 74.19% (47.83%)
CBet T (Success): 33.33% (33.33%)
CBet R (Success): 33.33% (100%)
I have no idea what stats I should be looking at but there's just some considering the two sessions that I've recorded since getting the software, I've had an unsuccessful and successful session.

I had a read on this guy from previous plays that min-raising showed weak broadway.

For some reason, my instant read on him was premium hands (AK, AA, KK, QQ). When the initial raise and flop raise/re-raise was only minimum, I disregarded AK and wanted to extract as much value as possible. Considering he didn't try to trap on the turn, TT was out of the question and I felt okay. To my surprise, he was much fishier than I thought...

Sweet Jesus!!! I knew there was going to be swings due to the range of the fish calling but I didn't know they were that bad. Another session where I couldn't outflop anyone and when I had premium, I couldn't get paid off.
