Limit poker: Saving you from yourself for years

Dealing a mid limit game and I get a drunk on my table raising and calling everything, showing K high on the river after someone calls and saying you can’t bet anyone off with 10 dollars(it’s a 10/20 game). Gets top pair and someone hits a flush draw, again says you can’t bet anyone off with 10 dollars. I chime in after he says this about 5 times and say it’s $20 and if you want to bet more we also have no limit games. He had been there for a few hours and probably dusted off $500. He tries to focus on me and says “thank you for that information”. I thought he was being sarcastic, but low and behold he gets up and goes to a no limit table. Buys in for $500 and promptly blows it all in about 7 1/2 minutes. Moral of the story is I get sick and tired of people at limit games saying how you can’t bet anybody off, and usually they don’t have the balls to risk it all at a no limit game, but they will slowly lose it all at a limit game.

    “Can’t bet anyone off” has got to be the most ignorant phrase in a poker room. I cringe any time I hear it. When you bet/raise it should be because you have the best hand, and you want the dead money from the donks and calling stations. Betting/raising to get your opponents to fold is just backwards.

    Are you kidding me Bryan fisher? Betting/raising to get your opponents to fold is backwards? What planet are you from that you should only raise when you have the best hand? Get real.
