re: Poker & the plight of limit draw games
I do like people who call when I have them beat, but at the same time I would like to play against people who actually think before they act. I am talking about FL 2-7 TD and badugi. I play them because most people don't know the fundamentals and make a lot of small errors that I can capitalize on, but as of late it seems like everyone keeps hitting on one or two card draws on the third draw and then costing me an extra bet and taking a pot I have strategically maximized. I understand that's part of poker, but I just don't understand the mentality behind playing a game you know nothing about and then drawing til the end hoping to hit. Maybe it's because I have been playing them so long. I have been playing badugi since back in the day when we used to call it low molly. And I have always played TD lowball, so the 2-7 variation was an easy concept for me to learn. I guess you get that when you play dealer's choice with the guys every Friday. I appreciate the feedback from everyone though.
