You limp jacks regardless of your position and players you're up against? That seems a bit much. :-?


i agree with baseballer of course, 2 jacks are only beat by 3 hands preflop, they are a must raise from almost any positon in NL holdem short handed or full ring game, in a tought game, u might consider limpin with them early positon.

a lot of the time no overs will flop and u can continue to play the jacks aggrsively, as they are most likely good.

Mad, you make a good point. I just cashed out for 135 in profit today, leaving myself with 50 bucks. So, I might consider one of those 50 dollar buy in tables and see how the cards fall. I think of myself as solid enough, so it can't hurt. ;-D

Wow, I have never been so optimistic after my QQ has lost 25 bucks to 99. :-b He flopped a set, I should have let them go, that is where I fail to be a good poker player. But I will learn to let that hand go. ;-D

wut u need to do is play the .25/.50 tables, but only buy in for 25 instead of 50. In a live game I believe you should ALWAYS buy in for the full amount to get wutever edge u can, but in online ring games I believe it is a big mistake to buy in for the full amount in a ring game, and you should always buy in for half the amount.

what he should do is play a limit where his bankroll is not at such a high risk. it sounds like he's playing well right now, but short-termed luck and a small bankroll could be a disaster at the wrong limit.

I'm just a recreational player, so bankroll isn't really an issue for me. I'm not trying to make a living on this, and play merely for entertainment purposes. If I win, great, if I lose, well that's okay too..I'm still going to have money to pay the rent. If I go broke, I simply buy back in if that's what I want to do. For now, I'm considering the move to a slightly bigger blind because as Mad said, people play just about any two cards for a quarter. I used to play .01/.02 no limit, now that's a limit where people REALLY play any two cards.
