$16 Beginner Tables at Bodog
I built my bankroll playing the lower ones and then started moving towards cash games. This past week I started to get back into the beginner tournaments but at the 8 and 16 dollar levels. I feel I am a lot better than the average at the 8 dollar level. Out of 20, I've cashed in about16 and have gotten 4 1sts and a bunch of seconds and thirds (the only ones that make an impact on a bankroll).
Anyways, I decided that if i got 1st in an $8 I would take my chances with the winnings and put it into a $16 tourney to see how much different it was. Well I played relatively tight like I normally do, 1 or 2 were out within the first blind level and I just about doubled my chips by the time it was down to 5 people and went from there to place 2nd. I noticed there were more good players sitting at the table but it wasn't too bad.
I guess my question is.. what kind of players are generally found at these tables? Beginners with a lot of money, multi-tabling guys/sharks, fish trying to make it big?? And, because this is a strategy section, how do you normally play at this level??
I'm going to play a couple more and feel out the competition here. Any input would be awesome! Thanks for listening to this ramble
