Well, not much traffic on this post - but that's okay. I was able to read up enough to find what I wanted to know.
Trip Report - it SUCKED. Of course, I knew the time of day we were going (late morn/early afternoon) wasn't going to give way to a lot of variety in the poker rooms. But we did find one game going and me and my bud sat down.
It was 1-5 Limit...only one blind for $1 and you could bet anything from $1-5, and it was bet, raise, raise, cap. Well, since we are so accustomed to no-limit, it was a brand new game for us.
A couple of hands I remember - I had A7o in MP and the board flopped an A7 for me. With top 2 pair, I opened at $5 and was called by two. Figured I was looking at a couple of Aces at the table. That at least told me there probably wasn't trips. Next card was a 4 so I led out again and had one caller (the other folded). Then the river brought a Q. Again, I led out and was called - villian turned over AQ and took the pot.
Later again had 2 pair and villian caught a flush on the river. Again - he called each of my street bets. My buddy and I both dropped some green on the table before walking away and we both said the same thing - couldn't chase anyone away.
He had junk and was making a bluff, but I thought he played it right. Bet preflop, bet on flop, bet on turn, and bet on river. Each bet was max and was called. Villian turned J high and beat his bluff. He called all the way to the river w/ J high.
Lot of chasing. Pretty much if you didn't a flush draw or a straight draw on the flop, better get out of the way.
Then we proceeded to go up and down at blackjack
before finally getting all the way down and called it a day.
I think I'll stick w/ no-limit or at least pot limit.
