Hi dduvshani!

With a junk hand in the BB, when the other opps limp, I'm more than happy to check and see if I can hit the flop. If anyone bets, I need to immediately fold.

I now see a 3-way flop that totally misses me. Having nothing, I need to check and fold to any bet.

When playing poker, I do not want to be calling bets when I have nothing and no draws. If I had a draw and was getting the correct odds, then I can call.. in every other situation, I need to fold. Calling in a situation like this is basically taking my chips, throwing them into the air and telling the opps to 'please take them'.

In league games, I cannot stress enough that I cannot play anything marginal and cannot take chances. If I do so, I will not win the $$ that I should from the end of the month leaderboard.... where the real money in these games is.
