I still love this game and play when I can so I like to mix up my play. First hand I played was in the blinds j-8 off suit flop was 567 I bet out 2 people called. Turn came a king I bet more calls river was a 3 of hearts completing the one line flush I bet 2 callers one guy had pocket 8-8 and the other q-3 off suit know one had a flush!. No big deal I like the perception of loose so I waited a bit no good hands until it was a live 6 two callers so I called at k-4 suited. Flop was k-5-2 one spade. I checked it when around so I knew yes king was good. Turn J spades I bet 2 callers.. River 5 blank I check check bet I call one fold the the guy had 5-10 off suit.. I went in the casino with 75 bucks won 100 on video poker quick 80 downswing on 3/6 limit then went home! Ha ha how do you beat that?
They don't call it no foldem holdem for nothing
I usually go play it after busting out of a tourney or when I'm running bad. It's a very relaxing form of poker, some might even call it boring. Decisions are pretty straight forward and easy

How about not over playing trash hands? So you got a free play from the blind with (J8-o) and the flop comes (5, 6, 7) with two hearts. All you have here is a one card straight draw, and that's not good enough to bet into two opponents in an unraised pot. That's a board that pretty much connects with the kinds of hands they'd open limp. Being that there are both straight and flush draws, you're either drawing dead already, or to a very possible second best. Your fold equity is nonexistent against two opponents, so check and hope for a free play.

Calling a raise with that is borderline. If I was going to play that, I'd like to see more callers, more potential bets a 2nd nut flush might win. After missing the flush draw, all you have is a TPNK. Showdown value only: this is fixed limit, and your ability to run off multiple opponents is, well, limited. In fixed limit, big cards most of the time. Save the speculative junk for late position overlimps, or if it's not too expensive, you have a lot of callers ahead of you, and you have cards they're not likely to have.
