i have won 2 out of the last 7, and finished in the money in 4.
how, i hear you ask?
well, phil gordon gave me the clue to that...if you decide to get into a hand, dont limp. bet 2x BB in early position..2.5 in mid..3 in late...and 4 from last position, given no previous raises. and dont be afraid of some action, or betting into the hand if someone calls. Its my guess that they only caught part, or none of the flop, and will fold if you bet post flop.

What to do if they come over the top? thats sticky...and you may want to rereraise if you really think they are bluffing, or just get off the hand if you dont have squat. try some techniques in the practice rooms, you would be surprised. but, forget about limping, your legs work fine!!

Um, Gordon never advocates the min. raise (2x bb). See here:
it's 2.5 utg and utg +1, 3xbb in m1, m2, (m3 if 10 handed), 3.5xbb in the hj and co, and 4xbb otb.

And welcome to CardsChat!
