To be able to beat the low stakes full ring games there are two things to take in to account on every pot you play before the flop. One is if you are willing to put your whole stack in the pot with this hand, and the second is what position at the table are you in relation to the button. If you are playing hands at a full ring game like AJ in early position you simply will not be all that successful and will be stuck in too many pots if your opponent decides to make a 3 bet pre-flop. Even if your opponent is playing aggressively it is still very hard to play cut off hands out of position. To be able to start making consistent profit in full ring games it takes more patience than almost any person has. The true grinders will play these tables because they have the mental capacity to outlast their opponents in long sessions, and eventually turn profits.
Playing aggressive in position on other players will help you to get more return on your money in full ring games more times than not. To be able to play aggressive in position in full ring cash games is very similar to that of playing full ring tournaments online. The only difference is the blind levels never increase and you can always reload if you need to. Mastering pre-flop hand selection will help any player improve their game and profit margins. At full ring games folding hands like KQ or AJ and small pairs is pretty common when in early position, but when switching to unopened pots from the cut off position or from the button you want to open your range up to almost any hands that can get you there. Hands like 78 suited or even just a king or queen high should be played aggressively with a 2.5-3 BB raise before the flop depending on the players from the blind. Continuation bets are a must from the button, but I would suggest to fire only two shells at the pot in order to take down the pot. Many times opponents at lower limits will check call with top pair and you simply will be throwing money away shoving your whole stack in on the river. Unless of course a hand looks obviously read like a busted flush draw or straight draw. Even then if you did manage to hit a pair you could check back the river and just hope you are ahead. Also, being able to get two streets of equity at full ring games when you do have hands is a key to beating it and varying your raise to 3-4 BB’s when you actually have the premium big pairs such as AA. This allows you to build bigger pots with bigger hands instead of taking down small pots making weaker raises when you have the virtual nuts. Putting a constant amount of pressure on your opponent will allow you to succeed and make them crack before you do.
