Damn that is really a weird structure esp the $1 rake no flop on a blind steal.

The large preflop opens stem from results oriented players. I cant tell you how many times I've seen someone open to $40 or higher in a 2/5 game and then proudly turn over JJ when everyone folds and say "better to win a small pot than lose a big one right!" Or they'll just 3bet jam pocket 7's to "fold out all the bad hands". These players want to win pots, not stacks. So yes, the result is the games just play much bigger. 1/2 plays like 2/5 and 2/5 plays like 5/10 stack wise. At the actual 5/10 level you probably get a much better class of player so everything is more or less "standard" there.

I will say the obnoxious overbets definitely get called less frequently to the point that I avoid them. I still see people happily calling off $30+ in a 2/5 game with a $300 stack, but these are the same guys who will call a $200 turn bet and then check/fold the river saving their last $25.

If you raise 3x or 4x youre going to be playing every hand 5 ways most likely and out of position vs at least a couple of players, but their ranges are such trash it hardly matters. You make TP or an OESD and hit and you're getting tons of value no matter what.

Well if people don't 3bet you can get away with it
I actually wonder if you can nodelock the low 3bet% in a solver run it and see the impact on sizes and ranges

Would take ages tho

No there is no reason to stick with GTO strategy that's complete insanity.

You probably have 100,000x more experience and knowledge than these guys and they're somehow willing to gamble with you. What are the odds that you are even the 2nd best player in that game? Looks like you're also knowledgeable about the rake system and made sure that it's actually beatable, great. If so, this opportunity might not last forever - your guys might run out of money, they might improve their game, life might happen, etc. So make the most of it while it lasts. If the money is significant to you, put in the hours, be nice and make friends with these guys, and play as exploitatively as possible, and try to absolutely obliterate that game. Please make sure you invest your winnings in stocks, not in hookers & blow.

^ignore this idiot

invest all your money in hookers, not stocks

hookers still make money even when they go down

It seems to be not very profitable in the long run to play those kind of hands. - Gus HansenLast edit: 23/02/2020 18:48

yea you better make sure you can sustain high winrates if they dropping rake preflop that shit is brutal lol. Otherwise you just will have tough time winning a lot of money longterm.

Just do whatever you think will net you most $ longterm. Why is it bad to be as exploitative as possible and start betting bigger with stronger hands and vice versa? If they figure it out you can adjust back right?

Some ppl got donk crushing down to an artform. Be creative but not deviate so far from solid play and you should be just fine.

I play very carefully, I just know when to stop. I had a friend of mine who got drowned by gambling, he lost his house because of poker. This is not normal in my opinion. Anyways, I stopped playing poker, because I got bored from it at one point. Now I prefer slots and bets, but it’s been a struggle finding a good casino or platform for gambling. Gladly, I had a chance to find a really good gambling website while I was browsing through the internet. I played the whole night and I was amazed by this website. My favorite game is daftar judi bola terpercaya and there are many more games everyone should try out.
