Beat the worst game in town.

Posted 02-27-09 at 11:20 PM by Invigilator

Tonight I played in a weekly dealers choice game with my Mother-in-Law and her sisters. It's an ante based game that is technically No Limit for everything, but tends to behave like limit.

Out of 7 players, it is common for 5-7 to see the end of each hand. Lots of checking and min betting. Tonight the fare included...

Hold'em
Omaha
O8
Stud
Spit in the Ocean
KC Lowball
Hit the post (not poker, more like card counting and odds)
Elbow
Various 5 and 7 card wild card games with various draws,

So basically it's nuts.

We play with 10 cent chips on an initial $5 buy-in with unlimited rebuys.

What I figured out finally tonight was that the best exploitable weakness in peoples games (besides the horrible betting and weak level 1 thinking) is that they can't transition well between game strategies hand to hand.

Usually I come out about even when I do play, but tonight I ended up 3.5 buy-ins. The actual approach was ridiculously straight forward.

Check-fold weak
Check-call medium
Bet-raise strong

Also, despite the tendency of the kitchen table crowd to like games with wild cards, they don't really understand how ( or that ) it affects hand values.

Either way it was fun. We were laughing all night and left in the black.
