Anyway, I was browsing around and Annette Obrestad's name was mentioned a few times and I began to wonder if anybody on this forum tried to play a game without ever looking at the hole cards.
Have any of you tried this at all? How did it go?
One of these days I'll play without looking and see what happens...I'll probably do this on a freeroll though
In live LIMIT hold'em games I'll play my button blind sometimes, raising everytime. Mostly just to loosen up a really tight table.
I tried Scott Fischmans approach, taping an index card over my hole cards (internet). If I got nervous facing a big reraise I just flipped the card up to see where I stood. It was fun actually.
I've found that I learn more about betting patterns than any other aspect playing blind.
