    The leagues are designed to teach patience, which is a key to playing poker.
    The key in these tourneys is to last as long as possible so that league points can be obtained.
    Players that will play anything at anytime are out there in any tourney. I've had them in everything from a freeroll to a WSOP Circuit. The key is to learn how to deal with them and exploit them.

      Limit will not eliminate the maniacs. Just try playing the astrology freeroll limit games. What happens is each player raises the maximum amount until the betting tops off. By the second round, players are going, or being forced all-in every hand. I've seen this behavior in live games too, so it isn't exclusive to online. Just check out any of the milenium hands involving limit play. That's what happened there, irregardless of the cards.

      Your only chance at eliminating the maniac is to form a home game where you have screened every applicant to be sure such actions never happen. Is it worth the trouble?

        As a Limit player I would suspect that this format would frustrate you more. You need even more patience in Limit and it's no foldem. What happens is a loose passive will play Q2o utg, see the betting capped after him but feel obliged to call the 4 bet because he's already put chips into the pot. He then see's his 2 on the flop and feels he has to call it down to the river no matter how the betting goes. Invariably he hits his 2 pair or runner runner straight which reinforces his "good" play so he keeps doing it. Don't get me wrong, that's how I make a profit in this game but I can seriously bang my head at times with players like this. When you're raising with AA it's hard to see them cracked because 3 players CANT fold rags.

          As Ovalman has rightly pointed out we don't make money from being the best player, we make money from others making mistakes. If the fish didn't exist then we couldn't make a profit; I don't play the league however I can imagine it to be frustrating. When you do get that stupid ATC shover crack your AA smile, although he won that time you will be printing money from him in the long run. By winning that one it means he will continue to make bad plays which you can profit from. Good decisions triumph in the end. Good luck Oliver umbup:
