Limit holdem - chasing the flush
I have just taken a few bad beats in limit ring games 1/2 $ by ppl starting with 2 soooooooted cards.
Has anyone got any stats that say playing any 2 sooted cards in limit holdem is a bad play???
I know the odds
of hitting your flush are about 17-1 on the flop, but a it then becomes 4-1 if u hit on the turn an 4-1 again if u hit on the river.
So if u call 1 bet and fold if u miss the flop in the long run will it work?
Add to that a miracle flop (u play K2 diamonds and the flop is K22)
And obviously u catch top pair and its good.
I know this is on the back of a bad beat or 2, but I would be interested to get feedback.
Ironically, I have just played K5s in a multi pot, missed my flush but hit top pair. Raised, got one caller then hit 2 pair on the turn!!!
Is it the Lord trying to tell me "play any 2 soooooooted cards"
