I'm starting to play these again, and am not sure what the optimal strategy is yet. I'm basically at a 8-handed table full of fish, some of them mega fish, ~85/15, but how many of those guys really depend on the pub. The strong, to be feared players play a 30/10 game, no one knows shove strategy, but most of them play ~ 50/10 games. They're 40bb-100bb for a few orbits, but they're mostly very short stacked. I have to buy a meal for extra chips, other than that it's 0 rake, with a total prize pool of $500-$1500, and I can win entry to a seasonal tournament worth $10k, defintely some value here.
I played these reguarly awhile ago, but I quickly recieved a reputation of being a terrible aggro monkey. I would raise over their 40% range limps with KTo IP, which to them was overplaying it so much, but I recieved the most heat for my late-game strategy of shoving very wide. It got to the point that people where gossiping about how much of a donkey I was, and where telling others to calls my shoves who were thinking about folding, and all cheering whenever I busted from a loose shove, or conversely went on tilt when my loose shoves win, ahaha, which was bad for me because it caused them to play better but whatever. The good thing about this is they failed to differiate my early game strategy from my late game strategy, even if I only played one hand in a hour, they'd still do lol ridicolous stuff at my superior ranges. However, I don't really want to repeat this, as amusing as it is, so I'm gonna be a wee bit tighter late game than I once was, the payout structure isn't as deep as it once was anyway so I need to somewhat.
I'm not sure how to play preflop in some situations. I have been isolating with, but with a superior range and am getting to the flop 3-4 way. They also limp stuff like KJo fairly often, which is a bit annoying since they also limp J7o and protects their range a wee bit, but whatever.
I'm thinking I need to be more passive preflop early-middle game, since I basically have no fold equity. So if I'm on the BU with KTo, and am facing 3-4 50/10 limpers, 40bb deep, what's my play? Should I try overlimping? What if I have 87s? 44? A7o? What about when I'm 15-25bb deep with these hands? Or when I'm in MP, 15-20bb and it's been unopened with these types of hands?
