large tourny sit outs during tourny: pros & cons
When in large tournys, ESPECIALLY freerolls
, sitting through every hand can spell disaster. I have developed a "LAST TABLE STRAGEDY" that has truly helped.
IF.... i get a lead in the first hour and I am in the top 20, i take a 30 to 60 min break during the 2nd hour, I don't even watch. Then when i come back, I'm way behind the chip leaders, but i have advanced hundreds of players closer. No bad beats took me out. Then I can play to close the gap in the 3rd hour.
I have made over 30% more final tables with this technique. It took a year to establish the data, to prove to myself this was a viable tournement stagedy, but it was worth it! Tournement play is all about survival, try this sometime, let me know how you did!
Or if you disagree, explain why you do. GL ALL
