Full Tilt Cap NL

The past few nights I've been messing around with the Cap NL games on Full Tilt. Holy Sweet mother of baby jebus are they fishy. I highly recommend them. People think of "pushing" with absolutely nothing, because unless they have $7.50 or less, they're really not putting their entire stack on the line. I've found that if you play solid tight/aggressive poker and don't try to get too trick, you can clean up. It's sort of like limit, without the stuff that makes limit as boring as watching paint dry.

This evening, I played TWELVE hands of .10/.25 Cap NL and ended up $25.00. TWELVE HANDS. Of course, I was dealt Jacks three times and pocket 10's once, but still...

After dronking off about $10 last night, I'm up well over $50 over the past three nights playing these bad boys.

Here's an example of the kinds of hands I played tonight:

Has anyone else played these? Are they just as soft at higher levels?

I'd be interested to hear other people's opinions.

Oh, anyone hear anything out of Britney Spears lately?

It's all about the limits. The cap game allows people to race in situations where they might not do it in NL.

Go speed racer, go speed racer, go speed racer go...
