When I am down to a M of 5 or less I go all-in with basically any hand from mid-early position if everyone before me folds. I also shove the SB/BB most of the time with a M of 10 of less if it is SB/BB battle. I think this is a profitable move, if my opponents don't have memories....
Today someone busted me from calling with a K3. He was a fair bit ahead and this was a fail on my part not to recognize my extremely poor image(almost got busted and manage to come back by lots of pushes). But that was rather minor. The problem is is when I play live; the players remember all those bluff pushes and because of this I have a poor reputation and players are calling more often. Some of the players don't recognize that I play bluffy/loose when I'm short stacked and give me more action in the early levels, which is extremely good because I was having a problem where everyone would fold whenever I would enter a pot.
The tournaments I play live have very fast blinds and it is a incredibly short stacked game; between a turbo and super turbo on pokerstars
. So low M's is a big part of the game. I'm thinking that to mix it up I should develop some system that Harrington advocates for normal stack play(using his watch to dictate how to play certain hands) Perhaps even use the combination's of the cards suits as well. What are peoples opinions on this?
An example would be I am on the BB, everyone folded to me, the SB calls and I have 7 M with 75o; perhaps I should push this 40% of the time? How would I add player tendencies into this percentage?
