Can`t lay down a hand in O8 - help!!!
For someone who has been playing for 3 years I have possibly put this in the wrong section, but here goes.
I`m playing a lot of O8, mainly MTT, but I was tempted to play limit ring games by Stars recently.
I seem to have a problem with laying down a hand when playing limit ring games, but I do well playing MTT - bizzare!!!
I actualy find myself playing more loose in ring games than MTT. I think it is becuase when playing MTT`s I find I have a definate `goal` i.e. to win the tourny.
Playing ring games I think I am effected by how long to play.
I am gonna start another post relating to ring/ mtts games, but this thread is specifically for O8.
When playing ring games what is your aim with your hand?
Is it to build it to the nuts and that is about it? I don`t want to make it sound that simple, and I know about drawing odds
, so I take that into account.
However, I will find myself calling down with 2 pair when there is an obvious lo out there.
Also, don`t bother to bluff???
I had a guy today acting before me. I knew he was just hanging on to the pot, but I had very little. I had bet every street and he had called. The community cards were something like 10dJd2hQd7c - he called me all the way with pair of 7`s (having said that, I had a pair of 2`s - I was repping the flush or straight.)
This happened on a few occassions with different guys. Any ideas please???
