Called a fish but i think its a good strategy, thoughts??
Hi, I was just playing a 10 Seater $2 Sit n Go, the blinds were at 600/300 with about 4 or 5 people left, i had a stack of around 6500 and joint chip leader when i took a hit that put me down to 1500 and consequently almost the short stack, before this i had been playing a patient game, letting everyone else go crazy and just picking my spots with the right hands. As soon as i went down to 1500 with the blinds what they were i pushed all in with K10s and everyone folded, straight after i was dealt 89s and pushed again, again everyone folded, over the next 5 or 6 hands i started pushin with any face card and any connectors because the rest of the table where all folding their blinds to me! once i got back up to a decent stack i calmed down again but i was getting a torrent of fish, idiot etc comments??
The way i see it i was getting respect from the whole table for my all ins, was raking the blinds in and quickly building my stack back up to a decent level, is this a bad strategy? I always think that its better to get ur chips in first and try to steal when you are that short stacked as being blinded out is a weak way to play poker! If anything i think the people that were giving me their blinds unchallenged were the weak ones, Does anyone agree or was i really being a fish/donk/idot etc?
I finished 2nd by the way so i must have been doing something right
Thanks for any advice
