Hi TR1V1A!

With 2 10 off, I don't care how many players limp in front of me, I'm mucking it every single time unless I'm in the BB and get to see the flop for free by checking. I'm not going to be paying chips to be involved in a hand with cards this bad. I'm going to muck trash hands preflop and save the chips for when there is a much better sitiation. I'm also never going to call a raise with a garbage hand preflop.

I want to be putting chips into a pot when I'm ahead, not when I'm behind and a hand this bad will be behind basically everyone at the table.

Good luck at the tables.

John (JWK24)

Hi John,

Yeah your right there, I will be doing what you said in future. If it starts out rubbish, it might get lucky or close but will normally finish rubbish!

Thankyou for your time.

This is a very easy pre-flop fold, whether you're in late position or in the SB getting a cheap completion in a family pot.
It's especially a fold because you only have 7 big blinds. You need to conserve those chips in the hope you have a "shovable" hand before the blinds next come round. Whenever you have less than 10bb, you should never be limping or over-calling pre-flop. It's shove or fold. With any hand that's not in the top 15% (and this is more like the bottom 15%!) you you should be folding.
