re: Poker & Defending your blinds during Tournament play
Early on in a tourney i really don't care if they take it 40 times in a row. What's 20 or 100 chips? They mean nothing. Later on i'm much more likely to re-steal. Calling is pretty bad IMO unless it's really early on.
If i'm going to defend early on i need a big hand, big ace or big pair, I may call with connectors.
Later on i'll re-raise with almost anything if i think he's at it. If I have connectors or better i'll probably re-pop it. It depends on how loose the raiser is, the looser he is the looser I am.
When i'm big stacked, you better have a hand cause i'll probably come after you unless you've proven solid. If i'm short i'm liable to shove it with anything, I prefer J4 to A6 in that situation.
As someone said before, I prefer stealing blinds, and i'll most likely give up mine unless you're a loosey goosey, then i'm coming after you. Until I find a reason to stop
