  • Question

    Just got back from Casino where I played Texas Holdem for the first time. Played well at 2-4 Limit and 3-6 Limit Hold em but when I went to 1-2, No Limit I got killed. It seemed nobody played by the book. Everyone called just about every pot when no one raised above the $2. In fact, I often raised 3x the blind to $6 in position and that still didn't scare anyone off. i think I won 3 hands in 7 hours (started with Ks twice and 10s once) and had numerous hands caught from behind with bad beats on junk hands. Is 1-2 No Limit a special breed of cat because of the cheap entry or did I just have an unlucky day?
    Should I call $2. middle to late with garbage and hope for a miracle draw?

      Hi hitdoc. You will find lots of information on this site that will very profitably answer your questions.

      From your casino experience it appears that you had some bad luck. With proper strategy the table you describe should be very profitable in the long run. The online 2NL ring games are similar. In the video section you will find Dave, Andy, Chris '19honu62', and Felix all have recorded videos dealing with 2NL cash games. You will find that much of the rest of the material on this site would also be useful on your next visit to the Casino.

      Good luck
