I don't know what happened, but my game has gotten more and more nitty over the last 5 years. Standard opening size is 3bb and usually no more than 3 people see the flop. This is at 5ct/10ct btw...
The plan is to spice things up post pandemic with circus limit games and higher stakes NL games for a selection of my more gamble happy players.
Depends on who is the first limper who has to call after the raise. If he's a station, he tends to induce a bunch more calls because people "get priced in." But it generally takes 6x+ to get limpers to fold in my (weak) game.
We play a .25/.50 Omaha H/L cash game at our home game after the NLHE tournament and literally no raise will chase anyone out. Part of it is a tradition -- when we started playing it for fun, it seemed like everyone who raised preflop lost. As a result, almost no one will fold preflop. You go all-in preflop and you will probably get at least one caller. We don't play for huge stakes either though, since most players only buy-in for $10 at a time.
I’d say anything over $2 is likely to induce folds in my .25/.50.
And this all for fun talk is nonsense, if you ask me. You could have a limped family pot, but if I’m in the small blind with 2-7, I’m still folding, to save that quarter.
Depends on the players. I know guys that play one hand an hour and I know guys who have never folded preflop ever. Personally, I don't get the insanely tight players. Never mind that it's not a great winning strategy, it's just plain boring. Playing like that makes poker as exciting as watching paint dry.
My players just keep walking up the ladder to the point where people with jacks will open raise to $7.50 and about half the time someone will call. Lol. I think most of the players are rolled for deeper than .25/.50 which might be part of the problem. I don’t mind though makes for fun nights and lots of rebuys.
