The one thing I generally see about "Surflexus Style" is that it's too passive for cash games and that may be because you are used to tourneys.

Limit games are all about small margins so you'll want to ramp it up every time you have the edge.

Hand #1: You could probably raise with the 2 on 3rd street.

On 5th, A lot of times I'll raise here if I see an opponent that raised initially on 3rd Street get an A here -- you mentally have to assume that he might have been raising with an A to begin with.

Hand 2: Cap on 3rd street with 3 cards to the wheel.

On 4th street, one opponent has a 9 and 6 showing and the other has a 7 -- 3 bet your low draw here.

On 6th, they don't know you have a 3 in the hole, so bet here. I'd autobet seventh street here if 6th didn't get too crazy.

Make those Hands #2 and 3, not 1 and 2.

Hi kuro,

I agree surf may have missed some bets/raises in these hands, but some of the spots you've chosen are not usually going to be profitable. That's one of the tricky parts of razz, knowing when to turn on the aggression and when it's more likely to make you spew chips.
