  • did I play this right?

    Another 2c4c Limit Hand. I got the card I needed on the river, but I have some doubts about my play.. 1) Calling all the raises after limping pre flop 2) Betting out on the flop with 2 players to act after me, and, this being micro (plus the action pre flop) the chances of someone having Ax with a kicker better than mine being pretty high. 3) Betting the turn, sure the draw was on, but I only had 4 outs to get it, and my top pair was beat by most kickers/ Still, no one was raising me, so I figured perhaps the pre flop raisers had pockets or KT+ By the way, DavidMack69 mucked 2d 5s, and frikuuu Ad Qh so I was beat till the river

        preflop, no problem. Once you put $$ in, see the flop.

        Flop: don't mind the bet, you've got top pair (but bad kicker). Get value and see how many drop.

        Turn: I wouldn't have led out there because I'd figure that at least 1 of the callers on the flop had a bigger kicker than me. I'd have check/called (unless the table starts raising everything like they did preflop). I'm really, really surprised that the AQ didn't raise here (I would with their hand).

        River: bet and hope you can raise it to the max.

        I'd also be making a note on the AQ player, because they played top pair REALLY passive post flop.

          So many limpers. Are these micro cash games always like this ?

            Yep. Tables I play generally have an average of 50% or more players seeing the flop. And generally limpers mostly. Makes for bigger pots, but you almost always need some sort of hand to win, and suckouts are common. It can be very frustrating, but occasionally you end up on the right side of things.

              Yes. So are the small cash games in casinos. (under $10/hand).

                  on 2c/4c tables 40% see the flop and most of them see the river
                  it means you are almost always getting 8 to 1 or better on your money
                  I would say 2cent / 4 cent limit is one of the easiest ways for a player to build up a bank roll
                  because the pot odds are almost always great
                  you use pot odds and good hand selection and ability to read board to really make a big bank
                  before you move up into NL or S+G's
                  boku87 used 2cent / 4 cent limit to build a $5 bank roll to $12 which he then used to go to 10 cent + 25 cent s+g's
                  which he then turned into $100.000 in less than a year
                  quite a lot of of the $100,000 came from points and leader board profits
                  his actual cash profit may of been only $50,000 or less it was points which let him achieve his goal
                  more so than cash
                  which I though was kinda lame
                  he did make prop bets on his making it'
                  I wonder if prop bets paid him off
                  still $30,000 profit or even $50,000 profit from $5.00 start without points considered is damn nice

                    Suited hands you want to get in cheap and hit otherwise get out ASAP. Apart from your starting hand selection and with no other info on other players I think you played it totally correct. Need more info whether limping A4s was the right choice but you never made any mistakes in that hand. I'd have checked the river if the straight never came but I think you'd do likewise.
