Problems with playing live on a fishy tables
Hello, I have come across this scenario very often in which I don't what would be the best strategy.
9-6 handed table .. Every hand early and during middle stage in a tournament starts with early position limper followed by other 3-5 limpers of course including BB SB, They play everything that looks nice, all aces, connectors Q6s etc.
My strategy is to limp and call cheaply ONLY from late position everything that has potential to turn into a monster pocket pairs 22-99 most suited and unsuited connectors, suited one gappers 8T J9 etc.and broadway cards TK Qj JK QT etc. Once I hit the flop or have a good draw and good odds
to chase I carry on playing, if I hit second pair or less i normally play passively check/fold .
TT+ KQ AJ+ i raise 3 +1bb for each limper and 3 bet 3x with AK JJ, despite that I always have to play multiway pots and .
When I open and I miss the flop, I don't c -bet because my c-bet will be called 99% of times, so I don't see point in losing money. And because there are so many players in the pot Top pair is also not good enough , SO even If I have TPTK I get 2-3 callers on my c-bet and I normally get outdrawn to straight, flush two pair or set...What is more If I bet the flop and check the turn , everyone sees it as a weakness and they fire a bet on the turn or river. ALWAYS and I can't continue.
I don't know what to do because unless i get a monster I CAN't bet. Please Help
