SnG Strategy playing with lots of donks
I need some strategy when it comes to playing with lots of donks at the table. Today, I played a 9 player SnG. Five of the players were the classic donks ( one of them if not all were always going allin all game and calling everything.(No exaggeration on this!! ) I found it very difficult to play. I finally grabbed the chip lead and won the tourney. ( A few very close calls) .I mean how do you play them, you never know what is coming, no matter what the correct way to play the situation is. I mean, if you have a pair of 7's and want to call the donk goes allin, you gotta fold. If you have 10 10,JJ or QQ your calling but most likely raising. The donk goes allin. I have to fold. How do u manage a game like this? If I have KK and want to raise big raise or allin, the donks are calling you no matter what. To me, this kills your game. If I have a low or mid pair I call or raise a bit the Donk is going allin. I have to fold. If I play too tight I will be short stacked to the Donks. How do u manage a game like this. Does anyone recommend a specific stategy to play against someone who plays every hand , goes allin whatever the situation. I played a very good game but found it very very difficult. I'd rather play against a good player, it least I know what I am up against. On a thread today, I heard alot of (you should want to play these donks all the time to take their money which I agree with. But I need a better gameplan.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
