this is so true. hand from today where i was sitting next to two drunken fellows playing insanely.
Hero is dealt AQo, raises to 10
Drunken Villain calls 10
Flop: Q82 rainbow
Hero bets 30
Drunken Villain raises to 75
Hero calls 45
Drunken Villain bets 75
Hero raises all in to 200
Drunken Villain calls 125
Drunken Villain shows: A2o
literally the worst call i have ever seen, let alone been the beneficiary of!
as for your question, to make 50 in a 1-2 nl game, i would sit down with 50 and play shortstack style poker. standard play as far as seeing cheap flops for the right price with speculative hands goes, but a much more aggressive style with decent hands with the goal of getting all the chips in before the turn. people are also more likely to make bad calls of your all ins when youre shortstacked just because they dont have to risk offering any implied odds, so a tight aggressive strategy works here.
