Re: Limit HE Q's
I find that I do pretty well in a live FLHE game at a casino, playing 5-10. It's really important to bet for value when you're playing solid hands and are pretty sure that you have the best-of-it. If someone sucks out on you, you just get right back and hope that a similar situation and try to have the odds
in your favour come out that way.
It's very true that you have to be extra patient in limit and that it may seem that you're betting with one hand while your other hand is crossing-fingers, hoping that someone doesn't catch miracle cards on you or are holding a huge monster in the hole. I agree, also that check-raising is a big part of limit, especially if you're trying to build the pot, or if you have to make someone think about calling $20 as opposed to a $10 bet on the turn/river.
I haven't played limit all that much online, however. Nonetheless, I'm sure, as is the case to NL, that the lower limits you do play on, the more chasers you will find. Probably to an even greater extent in a limit game. I remember one time a long time ago, when I was just learning the online game, I was playing on PokerRoom and I entered an SnG tournament - thinking it was NL but was really a Limit game. Was so totally thrown-off when it started, but made out alright cashing in on the tourney. Should definitely hit that up again when I'm on PokerRoom or any online site...this time actually playing Limit on purpose though!
