10c/25c is donk infested. Good point. Ram jam the Donks and avoid sharks.

IMO all most all your money is made on the flop and turn not preflop. Although raising good starting hands preflop is a must to add value but once the flop hits if you only draw to the nuts you cant go wrong. But heres where the great players make the "big" money, they almost always have a decent high and low hand/draws which they will often scoop pots or get 3/4 of the pot.
Another Concept to remember is that usually there is only going to be one player with the nut flush/Full house so drawing to these type of high hands is actually worth more than drawing to hands that have a greater chance of splitting the high end of the pot in a multiway hand.
When holding the nut low in a multiway pot is often better to just call down unless you come up against a single opponent, as playing a single opponent when you can at best win half the pot is at best break even if we dont take into acount the rake.
In summary play to scoop the pot and try and play starting hands that will let you do this. hands like AA23 double suited is primo but any A2XX where the Ace is suited is good also A277 or other pairs are good as you can flop a set and low with chance to fill up.
If you really want to learn the game i suggest playing short handed or HU as it really isnt worth playing the hand unles you have decent chance to scoop in SH and HU games. Once you beat thos simply take it to FR and watch as 8 other players instead of 1 or 2 give you ther chips
