Recently ran across the .25/.50 20bb CAP game on Stars. The max that can go in at any point of the hand cannot exceed the 20bb ($10). It's caught my interest. What is some general strategy for a low cap limit?Usually push or fold every hand you intend on playing? I make my normal raise when first to open, and if there is a raise in front, just push over and cap it?Another point I've noticed is smaller pairs are pretty much useless heads up in this situation correct? If I am in the BB with 55, and there is a single raise to me, I'm pretty much push or fold? I'm not getting the price to set mine so,The game overall seems very loose and probably pretty profitable. I've only played about 350 hands or so but I thought it was something to look into.Pickin brains for ideas, Thanks

Cap poker is the devil, avoid it at all costs.

I don't mind folding out hands we beat.

to play a cap game well imo you need to be betting bigger pre and 3 betting bigger to avoid as many streets as possible bc noone will have the chips to create implied odds for the most part. i could even see just 3 bet shoving.

Yeah it turns into a crap shoot pretty fast if your playing aggressive. Actually pretty much if anyone plays aggressive.

yah but if say you play tournies and have a good push fold game, just like super turbo sngs an stuff it can be wildly profitable seeing how most none regs dont know how to play that well.
