Once upon a time....

If you play enough times you might just find a decent starting hand in the first hand of a cheap single table tourney:

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to FrankNagaiJr [Jc Jh]

And you might just limp as 3rd to act, since there always seems to be one person at these events who will raise Q8o, K2s, or even 92o.

Dealt to FrankNagaiJr [Jc Jh]
beefcutlet: calls 20
xinxa: folds
FrankNagaiJr: calls 20

And miracle of miracles, nobody raises on the first hand....
thatsenuff: folds
Hershamboy: folds
NVDobson: folds
trawr: calls 20
mik18: calls 10
ZORG1969: checks

And you might just catch a perfect flop for a cheap table where there always seems to be someobody who loves weak aces
*** FLOP *** [Js 4s Ad]

And if you make a micro-bet, certainly somebody will give you a little bit of action for your nutty set with their weak ace.

*** FLOP *** [Js 4s Ad]
mik18: checks
ZORG1969: checks
beefcutlet: checks
FrankNagaiJr: bets 40
trawr: folds
mik18: folds
ZORG1969: folds
beefcutlet: folds
FrankNagaiJr collected 100 from pot
FrankNagaiJr: doesn't show hand


But I did go on to win the dang thing, so it all works out.
