    2/5 Limit

    Hey guys so I've been a long time no limit holdem player but being from the lowly town of Brantford its almost impossibe to find a NL game. So recently i've dabbled into the 2/5 and 5/10 game at the local casino. I've been probably 7-8 times in the past 2 weeks and every time I've gone and played 2/5 I have left up money but playing 5/10 has been the exact opposite.

    I just want to ask any limit players out there if I am playing right.

    Obviously playing limit I've found its almost next to impossible to bluff at pots, usually get 5+ callers per hand pre flop and almost every top hand AA KK QQ AK AQ seems to get busted. So I've found that I've been playing hands I normally wouldn't play in NL such as low suited connectors, A rag suited Etc. have seemed to pay me off like crazy. I know i've been winning a lot more pots then I normally win playing NL but I am also playing a lot more hands. Do you guys think this is luck or is it smart to play more rags for a better chance at a payoff?

    In limit, we don't call those hands rags.

    We call them the nuts.

    +1. Those are hand you want to play with, especially in late position.

    Obviously you need to play monsters strongly, but also be willng to toss them when the board gets scary.
