re: Poker & LIVE PLAY
Hey, yeah 1/2 ring is obv the lowest level for people to play. So you cant expect a lot of well thought out strategy. From my experience, I have played Ring at Starcity, Crown(Melb) Jupiters (Bris) and Skycity(Adel) I live in Adel btw.
Another reason IMO casino play is much more loose is that:
1.people may have travelled a fair distance to play so they are more prone to call than fold.
2.It may be their first experience playing poker, so they don't understand many of the fundamentals.
3. and finally alot of people are just plain Gambling. maybe they think of Poker just like craps and Blackjack
, and are just trying to get lucky.
