Thanks again Joe, there is no need to apologise. One of the many reasons that I enjoy your answers is because you are careful to explain the basic principles. Maybe my response came across as snarky? If that is the case, I wholeheartedly apologise.
The reason I, and many others play low stakes, is because we are bankroll limited. My particular case is that I’m cash limited as well which puts buying a “decent” amount of chips beyond me.
There is no pleasure in playing with people who will call or even raise with, literally, any two cards. Having said that, surely that is the ideal situation to be in? I know that with a limited bankroll, I’d much rather not play against someone like you. That is not because of your bankroll, it is about your knowledge.
Regarding your starting hand suggestions, I find that AXs plays well multi-way along with JTs+. These are hands that I don’t need to raise big with preflop simply because of the number of people who will call. A 75% - 150% pot raise on the flop very quickly gets rid of the dreamers.
I currently set mine with 22+ - limping from early position and raising quite large from middle and late position. My principle of “no set, no bet” tends to keep me out of trouble even in multi-way hands and I certainly bet big when I hit - there are too many ways a set can be outdrawn in a multi-way hand!
To conclude, based on your advice in both of your answers here and from reading many other comments and that suggestions that you have made, it seems quite likely that I already have a “JoeDirk” approved range (laughing!) and need to learn to play those hands better in a multi-way pot!
Many thanks again for your time,
