Going all in
How many of you go all in without the absolute nuts?
How close/far to the nuts would you go to consider going all in in a tournament (not a cash game)
In a recent interview, phil hellmuth mentionned one thing he does better than anyone in the world is going all in. He mentionned in the recent no-limit WSOP
event he finished 15th in this week, he went all in once at level 6 and the next time was level 23 so clearly the all in is the absolute last ditch tactical choice for him.
I find sometimes I snap impulse go all in with a strong hand or when I feel I am ahead and it costs me. But im wondering if people even good players who understand math, odds
etc actually go all in a little more often than they should.
Maybe some of us put too much emphasis on the no limit part of no limit poker.
To recap im not talking about people who dont know what theyr doing and shove deep pre with J6o.
I know short answer is to not shove without the 98%+ nuts im wondering how people wrap their head around this potentially volatile option.
