re: Poker & bubble
Of course a lot of people cannot get to the bubble at all, me I would rather bubble now and again(I mainly play sngs) and know I am getting a good chance to cash or even win. The opposite is that you go out early which people may say at least your not wasting your time but I disagree, every hand you play shapes the way you play the game so more experience is good right?.
Over time if this keeps happening think on your bubble play, are you being too tight and pushing when everyone has the right odds
to call? Are you adjusting your all in range or waiting for monster hands?. Bubble play is something I am just coming to understand and I am just learning a little on ICM and I am coming to realise this is how some players win tourniments. Reading Gus Hansens "Every Hand Revealed" its amazing how much value he gained from the bubble and if you watch the table at bubble time usally there is a player raising every other hand and stealing blinds. I want to start being that player!!
