I have been playing lower limit ring games for a few months now. I agree with the quote above about people flopping a monster hand and their first move is always check. Low limit ring games are full of fish and no-one believes anyone has anything. If you flop the nut flush start getting your chips in the pot.
How often have you seen people call all the way to the showdown with middle pair low kicker only to lose a hand they should never have entered the begin with.
I like your raise pre flop although going from 5 to 15 cents on these tables does not eliminate a lot of players. If you were looking to make a play here a better method would be to bet the flop and check the turn. Looks weak like you were making a play at buying the pot post flop. That is assuming someone calls the bet.
