re: Poker & Strategy for playing in a high stakes tourney on FullTilt
The way I look at it and play it, is I am counting on them not being able to fold TPTK. Example, albeit an ideal example, these situations happen more than you would think. Weak player raises with AQ, I flat in late position with 46o. Board comes 3Q5, he bets...i call, turn comes 2 or 7. You know the weak player is going to fire again with TPTK, usually a very large bet since you called the flop. If they're a somewhat suspicious weak player, you drop the hammer here instead of the river...if they can't slow down, then hammer the river.
I tried the TAG way, I think it has it's place. But if you can get some cheap flops with deep stacks against these players, I think you need to take some chances to accumulate chips. BUT you also need to know when to release these hands and not chase to the river. This is gambling though, and while stacks are deep I am willing to splash early to get a stack to impose on the shorter stacks after the break.
When stacks are not deep...this whole deal goes out the window and I do revert to more of a TAG style, unless I have a read on an opponent.
