re: Poker & how to play with people who never fold
In a cash game, some people will play any two cards, especially a micro level tables online and at small stakes tables in a casino. That's why they call it "No Fold'em Hold'em!" Yes, it's frustrating when someone calls all the way to the River with two cards that should have hit the muck preflop. But, that's the reality of the game. Look at the cards that Sammy Farha plays on High Stakes Poker...so it's not only at low stakes games that someone plays rags and wins. The trick to winning under these circumstances is to not over-value top pair...realize that you are either way ahead or way behind...so play top pair carefully. Also, use smart pot control...don't ram and jam unless you are holding the near nuts. Be sure that you are playing position wisely. And, keep your emotions in check when you are beaten by rags. Know that, in the long run, donks will lose their money to tight players. Don't plot and plan your revenge on the donk...just be patient, very patient, and wait. Then, once you have him in your sites, jam the knife in and twist it!
