I am on my third read through and I think I will probably read it another three times before I move on to another book.

    I don't think so, its strictly a limit book. I'll try to find it.

    Small Stakes Hold'em by Miller, Sklansky and Malmuth is strictly a limit book. On page 67 they go into playing small pairs and pretty much validate what I've said. Since the book focuses to small stakes they point out that many of those games are passive and have family pots which can make set mining appropriate. The games I normally play in are aggressive and small pairs in early position are junk.
    To the true gambler, money is never an end in itself, but simply a tool; as language is to thought.

    Yes, this is the book. I read 67 and it validated what I was thinking also. Again, I never really saw a time (online remember) where there was a threat of common reraising. Most of the time if there was a raise it was somewhat rare, and 3-betting more so.

    Generally I was refering to the loose game suggested starting hands on page 82, at least that is what I could somewhat recall. The tight chart on page 80 shows folding these hands as TIME advised.

    I could see a higher-limit live game making this spewy at best. Since I've never played one I again defer to TIME.
