Ok, here's the skinny. I've been invited to a home game for the last several weeks now. I enjoy playing with these people but it has become very frustrating. I bluff, I'm called. I raise big pre flop, I'm called. I push the flop with the nuts, and get beat by the river. I push allin pre flop, hand doesn't hold. Is there anything I can be doing to consistently beat these people? There have been nights where I've played a total of 6 hands in a two and a half hour period, to bust out. The only real strategy these people have is to call. I am usually the only one raising. When they raise I know to get out. When they call big bets I usually slow down. When I hit the nuts and it holds I massage the pot and get every last chip I can. I watch, study, and analyze. All the while my opponents are playing wtf poker. Is there anything else I should be doing? I enjoy winning and do it quite consistently at other venues. Why can't I beat these people?
