This is a discussion on $2 NLHE 6-max: enemy plays low connector flops 2 pair and then into fullhouse - where would I stop? within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; I played 45 minutes and was about to take notes in that moment about the game that its rather boring. everyone folded way too much.
With this hand I played 11 hands and folded 36 (=23.4 VPIP) (I opened up with this one)(never checked on the bigblind so its the vpip right?)
I didnt see the potential for fullhouse. I also wouldnt think that he would play T9 since the table played very little hands overall and i mostly saw premium hands. I also dont want to be scared off by people betting a bit more or else i think i will lose against people who pressure me a bit.
Im still new to the game and I change my gameplay alot. Overall I alwready thought about quitting the table because It didnt feel nice playing on it.
Edit: I wanted to change the title with an edit I dont think its a low connector in correct terms
When the quiet players all of the sudden wake up and get noisy it's time to take notice and look for folds. The table you described is not raising flush draws and then putting you all in on the turn when the board pairs. If I'm on my A game I can fold this flop. The turn is brutal as it makes it less likely your opponent has a T. But remember how no one usually even calls not to mention betting aggressively. I would think that he has AT+ here A LOT and even getting crazy odds with a very strong hand may be able to find a fold on the turn as well. All this time they have been waiting for a big hand to play back at you for bullying them. They finally got the big hand. So when they raise the flop just let them have the tiny pot instead of making two more calls and giving away your whole stack. I also wouldn't raise JTo here but if the table is that soft then go for it I guess. I would raise JTs however.
When you are isolating against a limper, you need to go bigger than 2,5X. Your goal is to isolate him or pick up the blinds uncontested, not to create a bloated multiway pot. The bare minimum is 4X against a single limper, and I personally think 4,5X or even 5X is better. JTo is a bit iffy though, so I would probably just fold this hand and wait for a better one. If you feel bored, then I would rather fire up a second table than start playing questionable hands. And if the table play tight, then maybe find another one.
Now you bet to much. Your bet is almost the size of the pot. Around half pot or a little more is better. If you had bet a normal size, folding top pair to a raise on the flop is to tight, but when he raise against a pot sized bet, this is screaming strength, and I think, you can safely assume, your hand is no good, and just let it go.
This card doomed you. Cant see how you can fold now, if you called on the flop, and there is only a half pot sized bet left.
I recommend playing cash games with 100BB and use auto top-up.
