Am I playing too tight???
Like all of us I constantly get turned over with bad calls from other people.
It got me thinking, am I playing too tight? I`ve read all of the Sklansky books and others, tried to follow them but I feel the only way it is possible for the % to work is if everyone follows the % rule, otherwise they reduce massivly.
If there is a flush draw with only the river to come and I get around 5/1 pot odds
I call. I can`t remember the last time I caught!!!
On the other hand, I am sitting with someone who is on the same chip stack, in a tourny today with 20000 chips. We are both in the top 10. Flop gives me AhQc with QdQh5c. Pot only 3000 so I bet 2000. He calls. Turn 3d. So I bet 7000. He then goes all in. I call, obviously knowing all that can be beating me is full house with pocket 5/3. He turns Jd2d, catches d on river. He was on button, I was middle position. Was it me or was that a bad call by him? Should you just protect your hand like a muppet and go all in with set? Throws the % argument out of the window if you start doing that?
So, back to my point, pot odds
must be affected if people are not taking any notice of them. How do u get around situations like this???
It always seems the fish bust u!!!
And this is how my night finished...
