I ask, because I saw one of the funniest things ever tonight on a $.50/$1.00 table on Party Poker. 8 players. Some one raises the big blind, and this sets off a chain raction. Everyone pays $2.50 to see the flop that's still in. It's like 7 players at this point. This reraise nightmare continues after flop. There's like a Q h, 8h and a 2d. Next card is a 9h. Continual reraise. The last card comes Ah or something. Not relevant at this point. Again, the raise, reraise game. There's like $25 in a pot by now. Pretty damn ridiculous at this point. The guy who wins it? Of course, he's the guy that stayed in the entire time w/ 5 7 off suit, w/ the 5h, thereby winning the flush since nobody had a higher heart. :whofart:

Now what compels someone to stay even call a blind with that hand, let alone call a $2.50 raise pre-flop before it even gets to him. :lol:

In my experience, 5-10. There are still the occasional fish, but the level of play jumps dramatically from 3-6 to 5-10. Of course, it does somewhat depend where you play. 5-10 at B&M casinos is probably a lot softer than some of the 5-10 games online.

It depends on how much $$ the person has. I see some of the worst players at the higher levels(15-30, 30-60). I see some soid players at the low limits. People will never stop chasing cards, if they did, no one would lose.

I'm doing 5-10 now, chasing without proper odds doesn't stop here, keep going higher. :)

It's frustrating, but just don't turn into one of those guys that chases unnecessarily all the time and you'll be okay. We all get entirely pissed off when a chaser beats us with one out on the river, but very seldom do remember the 10 pots we've already taken off of him prior to that because he was chasing.

Given a choice between playing Brunson or playing some idiot fish playing 57o, I'll take the fish. :)

Thanks Mr. Miyagi. :)

Still a lot of chasers at $5/$10.

You get a few with a hefty bankroll that can afford to fish for awhile and that can spell some serious frustration.

I played $6/$12 limit hold 'em yesterday. Felt just like a $2/$4 table. A typical hand had 5-6 players seeing the flop and 3-4 players seeing the turn. At least every other hand, there was a showdown. A lot of people chasing inside straight draws or staying in with Ace high for showdown. I played for about 30 minutes, played a total of 4 hands, and lost $80.

I play at the $215 sit and go level, and though it's not quite as bad as the lowerish limits, you will still see people callin a 900 chip bet into a 100 chip pot with a shitty flush draw. What also amazes me is that these people are betting this 900 chip bet with top pair top kicker, lol. The stakes may get higher, but the fish will always be the same.
