STUD players, ring games, help needed please...
Hi all, hope you are well.
I`m playing a lot of STUD games at the moment and I`m doing ok when I play MTT. I`m playing low levels, about $5 buy ins.
I play a very tight game, I need at least a pair to start, or 3 to a flush with less than 2 other cards from my suit showing, playing open ended straights, etc - so a very basic, solid strategy for MTT stud. I do open up when the ante and limits increase if needed.
My question, however, is relating to ring games.
I`ve started to play Fixed limit and I vary between $0.50/1.00 and $1.00/2.00. The ante, as you guys will probably know, is only $0.05 and $0.10 respectivly.
I have noticed a lot of guys limp in with anything, and I know it might just be perception, but a lot of them do well, chasing to the bitter end with any pair and hitting trips on the river, etc.
Now I am not suggesting I should play any 2 cards but I would be interested to know if you guys would loosen up your starting hand requirements?
If so, could you give me an idea of what kinds of hands you would start with - I`m ok at laying down a hand on 4th or 5th street.
