Here’s a little trick that seems to pay big dividends: There is often one donkey at the table that raises too many pots, plays only for the high hand, and generally donks off all his chips in the first three levels. I play my best during this time and maybe rake in a few chips from him.
Here’s the play I’ve tried successfully on several occasions: After the donkey is gone and I’m dealt a premium hand, I announce that I liked his strategy and start raising on the flop and the turn.
There are always a couple of takers who think I’m raising with junk and get sucked in. When I scoop a pot, it’s a big one and making the nut low always has some dead money in it.
Give it a try.
It can’t be said too many times: GO COLTS!!!!!!
