Yeah, I know it was a general question so general answers are ok.
I definitely see both the "I only play 4 hands" nits and the "Hey sure hope I get lucky cause this $5 is 1/2 my roll" fish. It just seems like playing against a few of these SS hinders my ability to play (especially small and medium pocket pairs). Maybe I've been too unwilling to get involved with them because the payoff is never there.
Here is the specific hand that was the impetus behind this post:
Full Tilt Poker
, $0.10/$0.25 NL Hold'em Cash Game, 7 Players
- Hand History Converter (http://www.leggopoker.com/hh)
MP: $5 (12/8/2)
Hero (BB): $27.65
dealt to Hero (BB)
2 folds, MP raises to $1
, 4 folds
MP mucked and WON $0.60 (+$0.35 NET)
So basically I've just folded 88 in the big blind, because this damned shortstacker just put 20% of his "stack" in from MP. Anyway, it just pissed me off
Is folding there +EV?
