44 at CO/FL a playable hand?  0   
Hi guys! Being a relative newbie in fixed limit Texas hold'em I was dealt a 44o at CO. Two players before me limped in. I folded but began to wonder wether that hand was reasonable(?) playable or not. I understand that the possibilities of causing other (unknown) players to fold is quite slim and that 44 is easily dominated by a stronger hand with at least 3 other players. Of course I could just stubbornly keep on betraising but if it goes to showdown... it just does not seem a winning strategy.

Thanks for your opinion.

I don't play fixed limit holdem at all but i can tell you from the no limit holdem strategy that in that spot you could have just called..

From experience i can tell you that low pairs hold pretty good against other more strong hands preflop.

Of cours if after the flop was dealt and you did not get the set and another player bets it's clear check/fold Blink

Yeah very easy limp behind.
If you dont hit your set give up though

Today I played 55 from button and got another 5 with the flop, took the pot eventually. Obviously changes to hit the trips on the flop is slim but when you hit you usually collect good values from the AKs, AAs etc. I might play this in some occations depending on my stack/BB ratio.

It doesn't matter at all what your stack/BB ratio is.
It's essential to always have 12BB (Big Bets) or more on the table.
If that's the case,it doesn't matter at all if you have 12BB or 1000BB since the maximum you can bet per hand is 12BB Blink

From what i know the rule is called call 20, not 12, but that rule is exclusively for cash games and it's not valid for sng or tournaments...

One more thing, if you get a raise before you or a re-raise after you it was clearly a fold, still with only limpers before you you can safely call Blink

Good luck to all members to hit the trips on the flop Big Smile

1st: This rule only applies in NLH,FL is a totally different game in this aspect.
2nd: Yes,it does apply in SNGs and tourneys just as much as in cashgames.
