I have been in many situations where i have One pair, other people in the table check, check, and check again, and 2 of them had better hands than mine.
COuntless times I've been playing and people with a flush draw check several times, making me think their hand sucks.
I know that would be part of the strategy, but it makes me doubt a lot.
I know there are a lot of little details i should be aware while playing, But I still can't detect when they are bluffing in these small tables or they really had a good hand (or bad).
Tell me moure about it, Please.
U cant really read people online but u can read betting patterns.
I play the .05/.10 tables every now and then and see the same thing ur talking about.
Those guys will play ATC.
I usually: only limp with low to medium pocket pairs and get out of the hand if the pot gets raised over a certain % of my bankroll, raise excessively with high pocket pairs, try to see many flops as possible as long as its cheap, dont chase unless its cheap or i have pot odds
to call, play the NL cap so when the donk does hit his 2 outer i dont lose it all, and just be very, very, very, patient.
A lot of those people hate their money and they are dying to give it to you. Just pay attention and u will find them eventually.
