I've just broken the $100 mark and levelled up to $0.02/$0.05, so far the tables have been pretty good to me. Its definitely a step up from the super passive 1c/2c as players are more aggressive and play back a bit more.
I've entered & won a $3 sit n go and with the $15 from that i started playing. The first table i left even. On the second table there was a particularly aggressive player on my left. Its a better idea to play with position on such an aggressive opponent but nonetheless i played on. I bought into the table for $5 and managed to double up to $10. The aggressor to my left had $10 also when i picked up KK in the small blind with 2 limpers in the pot, one under the gun (utg) and another in late position.
Now, i'd seen him raise from the bb before when the table has shown weakness, so i limped. He raised to 30c ... which was exactly what i needed, and the utg limper called after a think (late position folded). I reraised to $1.40 and he called. I had played back at him before like this once from the sb and before from a limp utg, so with that he must have been getting pretty sick. He called (utg folded) and i led out with about $1.70 on a T43 board he called. To give him a chance to bluff, i checked a 5 on the turn and he pushed. I called instantly, the river came a 5 and KK was good enough for a $20 pot. Didn't get to find out if he had the T but i wouldn't be surprised if he had nothing.
I think that has been my favourite hand so far.
