You can't assume your villian(s) won't have legitimate hands just because it's a $100 table.
Sans a read, which we don’t have, the average player at the 100 tables isn’t very good. Therefore it is more likely they don’t have a good hand.
You can't assume your quality of opposition just because it's a 100 table.
Why not? Poker is a game of averages. Are you willing to put all your money in against a manic with KK on a K9522? You could be beat but the majority of the time you are going to win. Likewise, the majority of players at the 100 level aren’t very good.
You can't assume your villain(s) won't have A234, AA35, JJ35... just because your villain didn't raise preflop on the button.
I agree with that. I just said that it is more likely that he is playing a naked A3 or AA then A234 or AA35.
You can't assume it's all about criticism just because the suggestions at FTP are majorly geared towards folding. You can't assume your villains are weak-tight just because they suggested folding.
I have no idea where you are getting this from. I never even hinted at anything close to this.
it's not a game of gambling, it's not a game of exploiting small edges... it's not about incomplete information, it's not about putting all your money in on the flop just because your 55/45 favorite.
I have heard this before and it doesn’t make any sense to me. Maybe you can clear up my confusion. I am willing to push all in with a 55/45 advantage every time. In the long run it will make money and it will generate action when I have 70/30 advantage. If I go broke so be it. I put my money in when I was ahead, that is what my bankroll is for.
You can't discuss pot odds in this hand because you simply don't have the odds, you don't know the stack sizes, you don't know you villains...
Good point. Since it wasn’t posted I was assuming that they all had full stacks. You are correct though, we do need more info here.
You can, however, ask yourself if your move is the right move, if you have really made the right decision, and if that decision is correct at all different levels.
You lost me again. Why do I care if my decision is correct at every level? The play changes drastically from the $25 tables to the $2000 tables so a correct play at 1 level could be incorrect at a different level. All I care about is if the play is correct at this level.
You can't make incorrect assumptions at poker, especially PLO8.
This one really confuses me. If I assume that there are 55 cards in the deck or I assume that my opponent always has AA23 wouldn't those be incorrect?Overall I think that there are many different styles that make money playing PLO8. I play a very aggressive game so I hope you can provide a little insight into why a more passive game is profitable. I am especially interested in why you wouldn’t want to be all in with a 55/45 advantage.
