Stacks of Fifty

If you find yourself playing in a live game, 1-2, 2-3, 2-5, where $5 chips are the common denomination….here’s a little secret to indentify the weak player at the table:

They stack their chips in $50 denominations.

I’m not scared of any player who stacks their chips like this, and neither should you.  Raise them mercilessly.  Put lots of pressure on them.  They don’t want to go broke.  They probably didn’t buy in for the full amount.  They still respect money, and have a fear of losing it.  Their favorite play is the “check fold” and minraises = “nuts”.
