I have been playing some with small amounts and not doing too well. So I figured checking out what PokerStars School had may help, at worst it should not hurt as info is usually good. I am a little confused about what the School says though. It says over and over not to limp, either bet, raise or fold. Also tells us which cards we should have 2 even think about b4 we enter into a hand, along with the position we r at. That sounds like pretty good advice. Then I spent some time just watching play at small $ tables and most of the time there r huge amounts of players always limping from any position, that I can sort of understand as many of them r like me & new at this. Then I spent time watching well known players & others playing 4 large $. It was the same thing, many of them may not have been limping but they played with cards ( a lot ) that the school said never 2 enter with unless of course we thought of bluffing. so what is that all about? Do these big $ players bluff all the time? Or is the info from the PokerStars School wrong? If we r in2 conspiraces would we start 2 think maybe the school is trying 2 shape us into being very easy 2 spot if we ever happen 2 play against them, I do not believe that but what is with these pros playing garbage cards?
