calling multiple raises with low pockets

Postby Noblat1971 » Sun Apr 02, 2006 1:38 pm

A strategy that has always worked for me, is when i'm dealt a low pair preflop, and multiple people are in the hand, raise, or are calling raises, i usually will as well with my low pockets, for a simple reason. If everyone else is calling raises, or wanting to participate in the deal, most of the time, they'll have 2 high cards.... if everyone in the deal is playing those high cards, the only cards left in the deck to hit are the low ones... which will make your set, and the monster hand.

This usually works for me and i have raked in quite a few chips from it, it's a situational type thing though, and if you're not feeling it, muck it, but just a little information that might help out.

I would say I absolutely agree with you there... same here sometimes people say oh yea u call with 5-5 u moron but I just smile and say yep I did cause u know what U win some U lose Some and well when I feel something no matter what it is in cards ( this can be good or bad ) but usually I follow my instinct .. most often too my gut is right .

Do you listen to the voice in your head or tell it to shut the F up ? ! ?

wow what a great piece of advice, I'm usually nervous or unsure of what to do with my small pocket pairs but this seems to make alot of sense to me. I cant wait to try it and see what happens. Thanks.

I still say muck em !! Chances are if there good players, at least one player will have a higher pair than 5,s !!! It may be a good stragedy in the first few hands of a tourney or in the later rounds when people are getting desparate and trying to steal blinds.

In tournament it is probably good thing if you have lots of chips, cause if you hit your card you can slow play it and get some of players all in and take all he has! And nobody is really expecting you to have trips, for example with flop like A-J-5, they will go crazy with their aces, and you have floped trips, clean them up!

Yeah it seems good but there is a lot of player who call with absolutely nothing just waiting for a little pair :)

Um, as long as your getting the correct pot odds it would be a good play. It is also a easy hand to discard if the flop comes bad and if you hit it will be well hidden. The key is be able to HIT or FOLD. Really that is the only way to play the way you suggest.

Postby Beake1970 » Fri May 19, 2006 9:55 pm

i basically do the same thing but if the raise gets to high it not worth it ur basically only gonna hit 1 out of 10 times with low pockets

I think it also depends on your opponent.. If you know he likes to bet out on that AK that missed a flop, go with him a bit and maybe try a re-raise on the turn and see if your right?  If the flop is low and your thinking he has Ak, Aq or a similar hand sure maybe the chase is right..

Then again thats if you know your opponent, As Chan suggested when the flop is scary and there is more than one caller.. If the pot odds are bad chuck those low pair suckas..

i will lay them down if they are 7's or below, it is just way to risly to play and hope for a set, especially if there are multiple raisers allready involved in the hand
