Default How's this for a good flop, turn, and river?

Here's the hand:

Table 'Sitarski' Seat #3 is the button

Seat 2: bucks44 ($240 in chips)
Seat 3: ImAllInNow ($87 in chips)

Seat 6: KinhKinh ($109 in chips)
Seat 7: newmary ($188 in chips)
Seat 8: ricem@n ($53 in chips)
Seat 9: BoredL1keYou ($100 in chips)
Seat 10: dovander ($162 in chips)

Dealt to ImAllInNow [As 8s]

newmary: checks
ImAllInNow: bets $6
newmary: calls $6
*** SHOW DOWN ***
ImAllInNow: shows [As 8s] (a full house, Aces full of Eights)
newmary: mucks hand
ImAllInNow collected $44 from pot
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot $46 | Rake $2
Board [2s Ts Ac 8d Ah]
Seat 1: gshep folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 2: bucks44 folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 3: ImAllInNow (button) showed [As 8s] and won ($44) with a full house, Aces full of Eights
Seat 5: Dr.Stevo (small blind) folded before Flop
Seat 6: KinhKinh (big blind) folded before Flop
Seat 7: newmary mucked [Th 3d]
Seat 8: ricem@n folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 9: BoredL1keYou folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 10: dovander folded before Flop (didn't bet)

So I flop top pair with the nut flush draw, turn two pair, and river Aces full.

Not only that, but the guy limped in with T3o UTG and then called me all the way down with his pair of Ts!

Gotta love low limit holdem.

From what I've read, I think 3/6 counts as the very top of low limit, though in truth whe Lee Jones talks in those terms in the first 2 editions of WLLH, he's talking of bricks and mortar poker more than online. I suspect that 'low-limit' has been somewhat redefined by the micro-limits available online.

All the same, it's nice when someone hands over cash to that sort of hand with virtually nothing.

From what I've read, anything under 10/20 is considered "low limit". But you're right, online has changed things with the microlimts they offer.

I'd say for online,

.02/.04 --> .25/.50 would be micro-limit,

.5/1 --> 3/6 would be low limit,

5/10 --> 10/20 would be middle limit, and

15/30 and up would be high limit.

Not sure what these classifications really mean though. I do tend to notice a pretty big difference between 3/6 and 5/10 though.

Limit Question:

Why the raise pre flop with the drawing hand?

The possible limpers behind you folded and, as expected, the early limper called.

Now you were heads up with a bad kicker pre flop. Yes you got position but I would have thought you wanted more people in the hand with you there.

edit: I realize you were telling a story and not asking for advice; I'm the one asking for my sake.

At a tight table I would agree with you. This table was playing pretty loose and I felt that I probably had the best hand at the time so I raised. If there was more than one limper in the pot I woulda just called and if it was raised i probably woulda folded unless there were a lot of people in the pot. I felt that in this situation, if I got the blinds to fold that I didn't need to improve to win. Turns out I was right, and happened to improve big time anyway!

If only all hands went like this.

edit: Also, with A8s, I would want more people than just 4. So to limp with the expectation that two more would limp would not be a good way to play A8s. With 6 people, it'd be a better idea.
