The avg VPIP in .25/.50 is around 50%, go up in limits and it drops quickly.

Are you bringing these games into poker tracker? Same database as normal holdem? I just signed up at UB today so I didn't have it configured to be imported in to PT. I was debating whether I even wanted to because of what it would do to individual hand statistics -- seems it would really distort some of the usual premium hands like JJ and TT. (I almost folded TT the first time I got it in a real game after I spent an hour playing this crap...)

this game [censored] rules.

not only is it full of fish (some of whom it takes 15-20 hands to realize "something's different"), but damn it feels good to get 5 royals in 248 hands [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

*Edit* Make that 6 royals in 263 hands.

Hell no is this touching my pt database. UB displays avg VPIP in the lobby.

I played about 300 hands and didn't get one royal [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] What starting hands are you playing? I don't play any connectors except AK and AQ (KQ from button with 3 limpers). I don't think it's plus EV to chase a royal unless you get a free turn. No way am I chasing to the river without top two or a high set.

PT will throw an error if you try to import any Royal hands.

Interesting game. I'd never folded QJ on an A-K-T flop before...

It worked perfectly for me, except it treats the BB as if it were NL.

There were these two guys at my table who were hemmoraging chips at an ubelievable pace. When the one guy had lost his $100 buyin, an observer, apparently a friend, came to the table and explained the game to him in the chat window. I never wanted to physically pummel a person so badly in my life... well, at least in a long dang time. Unfortunately, I've never flopped so many straights in my life [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

FWIW, my preflop strategy is to limp with AA, KK, QQ, AK, AQ, KQ (since we're nutpeddling, I want people in to make second best hands) at a loose table or raising to steal blinds at 2+2 table and call raises with AA, KK, QQ, AK (I should probably remove QQ, its at best a marginal call here).

Interestingly, if two tight players get into a raising war, you may want to call with your rags:

equity (%) win (%) tie (%)
Hand 1: 27.8238 % 19.58% 08.25% { KK+, AKs, AKo }
Hand 2: 27.8238 % 19.58% 08.25% { KK+, AKs, AKo }
Hand 3: 44.3523 % 42.50% 01.85% { QQ }

equity (%) win (%) tie (%)
Hand 1: 31.1974 % 18.84% 12.36% { KK+, AKs, AKo }
Hand 2: 31.1974 % 18.84% 12.36% { KK+, AKs, AKo }
Hand 3: 37.6052 % 35.44% 02.17% { JTs, JTo }

Edit: BTW, I have no idea who you guys are who play at UB, but I can tell the 2+2 table from the "fold, fold, raise, fold, fold, fold" action.

I been raising in position with AA and AK.

Also, anyone else have PT problems with this game? I thought it would just work....
