Hutchison Point System - Omaha...
I'm just curious about how many people are using this as a tool + if my strategy for use is sound. I'm thinking 30pts or more is good for an early position raise, while 25pts or more is good for middle position and 20pts or more good for late position with the majority of players folding to me.
I'm practicing with play money and not even bothering with freerolls
as I don't want to get tempted to use real money
before I'm ready. It takes quite a bit of effort for a math-moron such as myself to get used to the quick calculations, even if they are just adding and subtracting, it's getting the values right for each step memorized that seems to be trickiest for me.
See the point system's just for hand selection and has little to do with actual play. It just tells
you what to go in with, but even then, there's very little strategy in the article, it just tells you what hands to play if you want the hand with highest percentage to win. Only, realistically, especially in tournaments, that's not doable. Can't wait for 30+ points to go into a pot. Ring game, sure, but still, it's not a lot of fun folding for 4 or 5 orbits in a row. That's why I was hoping that setting some sort of minimum points based on position would be a good idea.
So is anyone else using the points system, and how?
