I feel like I have time traveled back in time! I have recently been playing in a new 1,2 (5 kill) home game that plays loose, wild, and deep...there is no cap on the buy in. I know, it sounds like a dream! But it's actually been my nightmare. My back round is online 6max and downright nitty live 2/5 games. Mostly being 2-4 handed to a flop, not 3-7. I have been a winning player for years, but have been a slight loser the past few months in a game, that on paper, should be my most profitable.
Here are some trends.
Most of the action is preflop and on the flop given how bloated the pots are.
Very little 3betting preflop.
Raises on the flop aren't very common, mostly flush draws or tptk+
Players run dumb bluffs based on feelings.
Top pair no kicker gets bet folded a lot.
I have made adjustments to my ranges in certain preflop spots, but would really welcome any ideas of how to adjust pre and post.
Any links to podcasts I may have missed in my search on the topic would also be very helpful.
I just remembered that Harrington on Hold em Cash Games felt like it was written for this kind of game. I'll brush up on that for starters.
