Last night I played live for the first time in about 2 months. $2/$2 $200 with about $4000 on the table in total.Hand 1: 5 way all-in pre-flop. A5, A8, Q9, AK and 10 3. Of course 10 3 wins.Hand 2: 4 way action pre-flop, 1 is all-in everyone else has contributed $130 to see a flop: A8, AT, AK, 77. AT sucks out on AK after AK pushes a flop with an A.Some dude and his wife are basically taking turns playing. The dude pushes the turn with a gut shot and hits the river. 5 hands later he does the same thing and hits. 30 minutes later while he is outside smoking his wife does the same thing and hits. So sick.Seriously, how do these people afford to lose $1000 per night? I see this all the time. I'm thankful for this, but I'm in awe. I know for a fact that one of the super-donks is a regular and works a pretty low-paying job.It also brings up a question about how you should play this game. It's always been my belief that if there is that much value and action, playing passively pre-flop and punishing donks when you hit is the best way. You really can't be aggressive at all or else you will start having to make tough decisions, like calling pre-flop all ins with 99 for example.
Did they call out any of these phrases, "Monkey", "Boingo", or "Ribbit" before getting their money in? If so, I believe I have your answer.
