I think what you might not realize with this strategy. Sure, when it works, it amazes/baffles/infuriates people. But when it doesn't, the ones using it just fade away quickly. I'd say it's probably like 10:1 odds
. For every one time it works, there's 10 times it doesn't.
Maybe I'm wrong though...Heck, just last night I was in a mini tourney. It was down to the last three, we all were in the money. I was dealt AQ, doubled the BB and was given an all in by the BB, so I went all in. She flopped over a 45 offsuit. She got a straight out of it and won that hand. I had more chips, so I was still in. 2 hands later same thing happened. I had JQ suited, doubled the BB and was raised with an all-in by the same player. She turned up a Q6 offsuit. Only 3 cards to beat me right? A 6 on the flop and a 6 on the river. I ended up in 3rd on that hand.
