re: Poker & Anyone here successful in MTTs?
Ive been playing alot on Pokerstars
and Titan the last month, after having a 4 year break from online poker gaming.
Ive focused on playing the 45/180 seater sitngo's with more or less luck.
I've been discussing strategies and plays a lot with a bud of mine, that has been of great help. Having a streak of 6 tourneys/sitngo's ITM finishes. And topping the events with a 1st place in a 2$ buy in on Stars with 850 entrants, giving a price of 500$,
What I've learned since starting play again is that seeing less flops is better than trying to chase every hand in case its a great flop. In my latest events i've been seeing around 15-23% flops, ditching all hands that I belive not to be the winning hand, and playing the my good ones hard.
The experience is that this approach to the tight game works really well, in most cases it will take you to the ITM-finish or the finaltable, what i 've also learned is that I have to be in the right mood to be consistent enough to keep this tight game all the way through a tourney, and not fall off the chair and make them crazy chasing bets.
Alltho having the tight approach it self just aint enough, having the skills on howto ditch a good hand when you sence that the opponents hand are even better than yours are imminent! Also the ability to switch from your tight game to a more aggressive style are important, especially when getting low-stacked and/or when you make the final table...
Well, thats a few of my tought on this online poker thingy.
May the flops be with ya and the river be nice...
