or maybe they can move it into a folder named "Limit Hold'em"?

Oh wait...lol

Actually, the best play would be to move the Limit folder below the No Limit folder

Yeah, or that. But with how often people post NL hands here, I figure there's a pretty large design flaw contributing to the problem that might also be easy to fix.

Oddly, there is once again discussion of consolidating LHE forums. I'll definitely throw the ideas in the mix. If things move forward, I'll definitely get opinions from you guys about what you do/don't like.

1. People who can't tell Limit from No Limit are just blind. No amount of forum renaming is going to solve that problem. Come on people, there's a section called "Limit Hold'Em" and there's a section called "No-Limit Hold'Em". It's not calculating the GTO range for a turned flush draw.

2. IMHO the Limit Hold'Em section should have a "Live Low-Stakes Limit" subforum analagous to the one the NL section has. Segregate live threads there and online threads in Small Stakes.

These people are unlikely to be blind. It's very common to blame a user for design flaws, and while any user is a contributing factor we cannot change them. I simply want to make any change which improves the chances that users post where they intended.

In a related point, in the last few weeks there have been a few times when great threads are pushed off the front page by posts which are moved or locked very soon after being posted.

I don't think there's anything we can do if we attribute the entire problem to new users. In my mind, thinking like this is just a way of saying "there's nothing to be done, and no way to improve that situation."

The flip side if rearranging the words or the forums is 5 keystrokes for an admin, why not?

If it goes through then I'd be interested to science it up. Do a pre/post average NL hands posted per week for 30 weeks or so. Just to be sure that it actually had the intended effect.

We already have this.



























It's just a misnomer as "Small Stakes Limit"

I love that, as this thread is going, there's a new thread that is definitely a "lost NLHE" thread.

Re: Request: Finally change the name of this forum to "Limit Holdem Micro Stakes"

The other day I was gamestarting some online limit holdem. Player sits. We play four or five hands and then he says "wait wat? I can only min raise?" I say "yeah it's limit holdem" He says "that sucks." and he quits.

This ignorance will never end no matter what we do. We could name the forum "NOT NO LIMIT HOLDEM" and they'd still post here.

Maybe you're right, but we can actually find out if a title matters. Honestly, when I was first looking for this forum in 2009, I wasn't sure that I had found the right forum because of the name. It always stuck with me, so I'm probably biased. I think people get confused about the title.

Maybe keep it as is, as a sort of vetting process.

I'm sure the NL forums appreciate our vetting their posters for attention to detail. Call me selfish...

Another idea would be to create some new fake accounts and spam post limit threads in the NL forum.

We could try and see who gets the most post before it's locked/moved.

I think I'll do 1 later just for fun.

Re: Request: Finally change the name of this forum to "Limit Holdem Micro Stakes"

You need to present a normal hand, and then propose min-betting/raising as a reasonable idea at the decision street. Make it a great post with reads/stats and hand converter. Based on what we see, this will put you in the top 10% of micros NL posters. Then, be reasonable but refuse to be swayed in any way that mindbetting isn't the best answer. "No, I totally get that we need to offer him incorrect odds here, it just seems like if I click it back, he'll make a huge mistake later". Stuff like that.

Then the rest of us can stop by and say "I've found min-raising to be profitable, for years... all the way up to the mid/high-stakes."
