      Hi all

      I'm finding some players at these micro limits are either really bad or just loose, which make them somewhat harder to predict, how should I deal with these players?

      For example this particular hand, was my decision on the river correct?

      EDIT TITLE: NL2

      Thanks a lot.

      In this case, just put him all in on the river. He doesn't even have a half pot bet left.

      If he had a fullstack, I would probably shove it too because he'd only have a pot sized bet left. But if you think it'll scare him away, just value bet like 1/2 pot.

      They are usually just bad. We should bet/bet/bet against these passive guys to maximize our value.

      He might have a J but I would still put him all in cause he calls with worser hands there very often.
