thanks for the info...will check out the archives!
the question is very broad as you say.
Let me refrase...
What have others noticed to be a common challenge at live 1/2 nlh tables at casinos
were the players seem to be very familiar with one another.
Reason being that, well, I seem to be in over my head at this one casino in particular. 1-2 at other venues seems to be what i would expect in skill level, but at this one they seem to be playing a different game alltogether.
The raises are 12 and 15 over the 2 dollar blind preflop. Is this the kinda thing I should expect? I used to play 2-5 at another casino and rarely saw this much action preflop.
