re: Poker & rethinking game plan
i started with nl holdem but got tired of it and stopped playing. i got into stud games and draw games then pl omaha and pl omaha8 then came back to holdem lol.
if u can play the pl and nl limit games well, ur better off playing em over a limit game because u can make more in less time.
same thing is true if ur better at stud or omaha, u should avoid thier hi/lo counterparts because of split pots. u should be able make more $.
i dont like limit holdem. never have and probably never will, and im a stud player and play numerous limit games. it just gives bad players excuses to stay waaay to long in hands. id rather have a chance at some1s whole stack if they want to be "adventurous" rather than just 1 bet, 2 bets etc. its also boooring and mechanical also.
id play pl holdem only if theres a table of aggress bad players to see a flop cheap and trap ppl. that way i dont have to risk much to see a flop and out play em post flop.
nope nope just no reason to play limit holdem, its boring and if i wanted to get money id make more playing anything else, especially a nl or pl game.
ive heard the arguments about upswings/downsswings in nl , pl games compared to limit. but ur gonna getem in all forms of poker. Like if u call too many late bets and chase like a new person would in lim holdem, ur gonna have serious downswings and upswings sessions also. ive had awful swings playing stud8 especially at aggressive table also.
anyway, id do my best to avoid limit holdem even for a beginner. if ur just starting out, 2 months like u say, id recommend playchip tables to develop common skills like reading a board quickly and accurately.
have fun playing lim holdem if u decide to play anyway
