So sorry. That was funny!


I always advocate raising with AA whatever the action in front except heads-up.
Went to lowest cash level. Set it up 2/5 blinds and to deal me AA utg every time. Then I limped each time for a 50 hand session.
I won $31 short of 20 buyins in 50 hands. Bahaha!
Basically only folded if i cbet and got raised
Twice on a monotone board or paired board.
So I apologize. Maybe limping AA has its place. @1warlock
Don't think i would have won as much if i raised 3x each time because even at the lowest level the villans morph into geniuses and fold to utg raises.
Maybe i'll try that next.

    Well then, what can we conclude from this? That limping AA is a good idea or that playing against passive-nits is like printing money? LOL

    Try playing the reverse strategy with the nut-low (7/2o) from UTG but raise every hand to 3.5-4x. C-bet every flop as you did with AA and only fold when raised. I'd be willing to bet you will show a good profit at the end of 50 hands in this scenario as well.

    Crank the bot aggression setting up to above-average and run both scenarios again and see what the results are. When opponents are too tight-passive its pretty hard to lose money against them. You can play many hands blind and still come out ahead. Sadly, we rarely get a table like this in real life.

    BTW, I ran the absolute sickest bluff the other night in an online MTT right before the bubble. I had 3-bet with 5/6s from the BTN to a lojack open and flopped an OESF draw. I had fired both streets and was left with a little more than a pot sized stack at the river. So, with 6-high on the river I thought of giving up and trying to limp to the cash but instead fired that 3rd barrel all-in. After tanking for a good while, he folded. Whew!

    Good bluff! You may have 3 barrel jammed a high pair so its good that you played your air jam the same way.
    Yeah. I did the same experiment at 6 max. I came away with a weakish 12.5 buyin win.) Got busted a couple times in the beginning with 2 pr from villan. Then got going and ended with 12.5 up.
    Noticed at 6 max if you limp, they 3 bet more. So at first was limp raising. Then adjusted to limp calling. Seemed to get more value limp calling and keeping their range wider.
    Going to post a hand. You wont believe what villan folded. Look for it.
