I completely disagree. I find that every random idiot who wants to play "some poker" sits down at 1-2. It takes a higher intelligence level to win at the other games and those are too complicated for the random idiot to play in.



there was a time when low limit NLHE was a gold mine. The poker boom, however, is now largely over. A lot of those random idiots either stopped playing or learned enough about the game that they stopped playing so poorly. Also the rake on low limit NLHE games is astronomical compared to the structure of the game. Add a $1 BBJP drop that you almost never see any money back from, and you're paying a lot of money for some small edges.

Meanwhile, if you can find a single moron at a nice PLO game, your edges can be huge.

The thing about low limit NL is that you are rarely are going to find the guy who is just GIVING money away. They exist, but most people who play have some degree of a brain. But they still make mistakes. It might be small, but theoretical mistakes. You have to take advantage of them when you can. That's the profit. Plus it obviously takes years of experience and practice to get the "feel".

And then add in the obligatory $1 or more tip.



Obligatory you say? Would you tip a 20 dollar heads up pot?

I don't tip anymore and I let it be known when I sit down no matter what game it is.



Wait, really? You sit down at a poker table and say, "Hi everyone, just so that everyone knows: I don't tip"

I rarely play poker.



So, then, at blackjack, you will sit down and immediately tell the dealer that you don't tip? (or any other game; it doesn't matter).

I have no problem with tipping or not tipping (it's a personal decision) but opening with that line would seem like it would cause immediate animosity. I'm just curious about why you do it.

caro's...."Most Porfitable Hold em advice" is helpfull to me.

Caro actually helped write Brunsons super system.

His tell book is good as well.

For a primer..how to...Super system has already been mentioned.

I still think that its easier to find fish at nlhe......people at the other games seem to know what they are doing.
