they play super loose and maniac aggresive at times, they mainly limp pre flop the whole table that is, then when the flop comes the action gets heavy, if you raise preflop you get about 4 callers sometimes more so everypot is multiway. People dont fold much there calling stations but have a tendancy to bet when people have checked. I have tried playing tight mainly playing pairs, big aces, suited aces and Broadway hands in trying my best to play for position but I find when I flop say middle pair there is alot of action and I'm in a tricky spot. I've seen pots end up at £45 when the blinds are 25p and they have shown down ace high or are playing the board. Should I be calling down more with weaker holdings ?? Should I do nothing but value bet?? Should I play a short stack and shove with big pairs and big aces so I don't have ti make desicions pre flop ?? Any suggestions would be helpful
What game are you playing? Is it PL or NL? If you are playing NL make your opening bets bigger with really good starting hands and don't be afraid to shove it preflop and take down a small pot. In PL this tables are AWFUL to play, variance is huge and you will take a lot of really bad beats that'll make you frustrated and potentially affect your game. On the bright side, slow playing and value betting get paid off HUGE at these tables so when you have the goods, bet it. If you don't get out. And don't be discouraged by the guys chasing their flushes and straights against your shoves, they will pay you off most of the time.
BTW I think you should consider raising 10x to start with your premium hands to widdle the field down, also make sure you know your pot odds and implied odds so you know when to chase your draws and when to wait! GL man!
