Two bluffers in one hand force me to fold the best hand. Is there anything I can do? I bet the flop hoping to at least get two or three people to fold and allow me to take a free card on the turn if I miss. Any suggestions? I'm down $4.50 in this session after playing 50 hands. Am I doing okay, or should I make somme changges in my play?

EDIT: On my 51st hand I won a nice pott which allowed me to claim a profit of $8.75 for this session.

I realize this is supposed to be for 2/4 and higher but 1/2 isn't really a micro limit and honestly it plalys a lot like 2/4 on stars, and I'm sure it plays better than 2/4 live, so I put it here.

What is the problem with pasting the hand histories? Does it not show up for some people?

It's a real pain in the ass to read. Also, unless it is necessary and you need to describe action from a previous hand for input on a different hand, one hand per post. Also, the forum limits are defined as such for a reason. In this case it is for forum traffic. Posting 1/2 hands here just adds to the bulk that should be taken care of by the micro forum

Default Re: More 1/2 limit hold\'em 10-handed at PokerStars, how was my play?

my suggestions:

hand 1 bet the turn... don't bother about him being agressive if he's gonna raise a crap hand here it doesnt bother me at all since your TPTK is prob good HU

hand 2: I'd fold preflop... the hand is just too weak

hand 3 and 4: can't be of any help there.. it happens... they'll pay you off another time tough

hand 5: I think I'd play it the same

The forums specifically state what limit each is for. I'm not going to post a 30/60 hand in Micros because the table was particularly loose, nor would I post a .25/.50 hand in Mid-High because it was a 2+2 table. It's a micros hand. The implication that the people in micros are somehow 'better' than the people in SS is ridiculous, you'll get great advice from people who play these limits daily.

Hand 1 : Gotta bet the turn, then call the river.

Hand 2 : Fold, not enough limpers in the pot for this one.

Hand 3 : That's fine, but I'd also consider check/calling the river. We may not be good >50% of the time when called.

Hand 4 : Call down, fold if it's 2 bets to you though.

Hand 5 : You flopped a full house [img]/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] keep putting in bets until you wear through the mouse pad.

Are more people calling this down?
I think I'm hardly ever calling this turn unless I have reads on both opponents to be very agressive/maniacs/idiots
