My two cents is I'm not calling with ATC even if I'm getting 10-1 on my call. I'm still in a crap position in a multi pot and there's plenty of times where I may hit my longshot hand :Jd4c with a QhJs4s flop and not be super happy about it. Sometimes I'll get it in a big favourite, sometimes I'll get called down by the flush draw and the str8 draw, sometimes I'll get hit with trips, etc. And flopping two pair or better is not exactly a common. My position also means I'm going to have to bet out to protect my hand. I may not even get any action when I hit... on a flop like J42 rainbow. Calling in these spots with ATC is probably going to bring giant swings to my bankroll with little long term benefit. There are easier ways to make money. I will call with suited aces, suited connectors, small pairs, since if I do hit my hand I have a better chance of being way ahead, getting action and a slightly smaller chance of being outdrawn.In these games, I'd rather play like a nit, and just shove my QQ+ into the limpers and pick up dead money/ stack people who can't lay down 88s preflop. Dull as hell, but dead simple.
