surrounded by maniacs!!!
Recently joined a local poker league thats free to play, they play for points rather than cash. There are usually two or three tables. Without sounding arrogant, the standards not that high and I should be owning these guys. Most of them have no concept of position or ranges, they limp any hand containing an ace or king, tiny pairs, tiny suited connectors. Most of them have a vpip of like 60%. They bet like mad post flop then turn over pairs, two pairs, even high cards to take the pot.
The other night I basically didnt get dealt a decent hand all night and just bided my time. Then my m number got to about 5 so was thinking all ins are my only move. Got ak suited, shoved and got called with a pair of threes and lost.
My question is this. If ur supposed to be loose against tight players, tight against loose. What do I do when im getting no decent cards. Can't blind steal because they always call. If I limp in with speculative hands and miss the flop, they start betting big with small pairs and overcards. Only way it seems is to get to showdown with the best hand. But if im getting dealt shit all night I dont know what I can do.
