In the past two weeks, I’ve found myself in the “wrong” game three times. All three were when I thought I’d signed up for a high-low split game that was really a high only game (all were free rolls, thankfully). A few years ago, I did this a few times, made myself a small paper sign I could post next to the monitor that said “HIGH!” in large letters. Naturally, I lost the dratted sign, but lately, I’m thinking I need to make another. Ironically, I’ve won a few hands thinking I had the lock low when everyone folded, but usually I just end up busted out.
I can’t be the only one making this error. How do you avoid this mistake?
