MTT Strategy early game (First Hour)
Ok since has been set in my mind since I've played a few rebuy tournies but since have adapted it to all MTTs (fields of 1000+)
Say its early levels, you are playing tight, only playing select a few hands, pockets, strong aces, and maybe perhaps sc and others depending on situations.
Anyways so is it wrong that if someone raises and you have AK just shove relentlessly, you are more than likely earlier on since its micros. racing against a lower ace and if you arn't more than likely pockets jj of course this all read dependant. but are you relentlessly pushing on this stuff hoping to be called?
Yes even if you are racing against PP having a double up or even a triple up early on makes the rest of tourney so much smoother, .. normally you will always be racing again something like 88+ and if your lucky and a fish is in the hand if he has kq or the like he will call alot of the time to.. so you are flipping for a triple up.. I think its good no?
Yes its early tourney no need to start flipping right? Having a stack to combat against the fishy big stacks (the ones that get 30k+ on fishy bullshit) if you are stuck being in tight mode early on if you are still on starting stack on there abouts and a fishy big stack comes.. it really is a nightmare.
Is it wrong to have this mentality? or should I apply this in more later stages i.e if blinds are 50/100 and I'm still on starting then do the flip situations? i never use to relentless shove AK pre only because when its rebuys hey who cares? 50/50 situation to get ahead, if you fail just start over early on people are pushing wide on lots of crap
