Initial raising at a $1/$2 NL table
I've been playing a lot recently at the local casino, mostly $1/$2 NL with a buyin of $300 max. Now, I have never played at any other place live and am wondering what the initial raises are in the places you people have played.
For example, yesterday the initial raises were from $12-$27. At a $1/$2 table. I have played $2/$5 at the same casino and the initial raises there seldom went over $15 so I'm a little confused when people raise so much.
So, what are the general raising patterns at your local casinos
for $1/$2 NL?
