re: Poker & just a quick microstakes question
ok. 2nl if you have a good hand, especially a big pocket pair, raise 6-7x at least. the best regulars at 2nl full ring (yes i can name a few) actually make it 22 or 24c preflop. the reason behind this is because the fish has no brain, he doesn't see it as x amount raise but as cent, he might not fold the 67 for 6 cent, but he most likely will for 20 cent. plus you want to get as much value preflop if you have lets say AA. Thats what i do and nobody can say my BB/100 is small, i have 6BB/100 at full ring 2nl and 9BB/100 at 6max.
so, raising bigger preflop works awesome, 3x is too weak at this level and you are going to get in a lot of multi way pots and now even you AA looks bad with 3-4 more players in the pot regardless of what came on the flop because there are so many combinations.
one more thing, saw some guys saying you want the fish to call, so there is a reason behind making it 3x or 4x. sounds really bad to me, i do want to get called but if possible i would like to get called by 1 guy, not 4 when i have AA, or even worse AK. i will take a fold preflop anytime rather than getting in ridiculous spots with too many players on the flop.
