Bodog beginner SnG, need help!
It's said that the beginner freerolls
on Bodog are about the easiest to make money in. I dicided to give it a shot and after 20 games I'm already about 10 bucks down (the entry is 2,20). I consider myself a reasonably solid player and I feel like I'm playing better then at least 75% of the people there (everyone limping with small stack while the blinds are high, lots of min raising, calling with weak hand etc). I usually play tight/agressive (seen flop about 20% of the hands), but somehow it doesn't pay off. Can someone please give me some advise on how to play these tournaments, because it's increasingly annoying me, for example the last tournament:
5 ppl left, 150/75 blinds, and I'm on the BB with 2200 chips holding QQ. A tight/passive player with 2800 chips on the button calls, SB folds. I raise to 450-500 and the button calls.
flop: J-4-5 rainbow. I bet another 700, almost sure my QQ, get called. I think he's holding a J with a decent kicker, so I'm confident that I'll win. The turn is a 3. Now I'm positive that unless he's slowplaying, I win this hand, so i throw my chips in, only to get called by a 4-3 offsuit.
I mean: is that for real? Do people always get lucky on me, or am I the one who's crazy?
If someone has experience with these type of tournaments, please share it with me, because I'm desperate.
Off topic: I'm 99% confident that the guy who's suspected to have killed Nataly Holloway also plays in these tournaments. Really freaky to play against a (suspected) murderer.
