I was watching a video here of Pokergo footage of a high stakes $750/$1500 limit mixed game with big name players. Hanson raised 52o from CO in LHE. Someone limped 9(73) in razz into several low cards with bad dead cards and then called 4 bets when it was jammed 4-ways. Someone else draw 2 on the 3rd draw 3-way in TD against a hand pat hand and a draw 1 on the 2nd draw.
I know in live poker a lot of people want to play hands, so play loose. Is this bad play that common? Do people do that sort of thing at the $2000/$4000 or whatever famous mixed Big Game at Bellagio? I am not going to play the kind of stakes at the video, but I am thinking of trying $200/400 or whatever mixed if just playing solidly will give you a significant edge.
