re: Poker & Limping/Calling with any two.
Thanks everyone. ATC probably not a good idea, but maybe with cards that have potential post flop, like higher suited connectors and such.
Also, there is no way I would call a family "raise" with ATC. I was mostly referring to limping in ONLY in late position, especially in the small blind when it only costs you 50% less.
Nonetheless, point taken.
Funny you should mention home games...I played in one with trusted friends in Fairbanks about a week ago...the whole table was loose. I wasn't trying to make money; just playing for fun, mostly Omaha, with some 7-card stud and a game called "guts," which is a lot of fun. Anyways, my buddy next to me drew to 4 aces during a game of 5-card draw when I was dealt a full boat...that one hurt a lot.
Home games, to me, = fun, not profit. I guess it depends on where you play and who you play with...
