I find myself going deep in many tournaments using this strategy.. take it or leave it... I laydown trips sometimes just depends how I am running and feeling...
Some truth in what you are saying - there are spots for all-ins and big raises though, too.
I rarely open shove anything either ...
- but if you have notes on your opponents and know their shoving range calling their all-ins can be your chance to get a blast, imo.
-It depends on the opponent - is he able to fold against a raise, why should I shove ?
-If he's a calling station vs raises but folds to a shove easily and I have the nuts I'd rather lure him into paying me off.
-If he's very aggro he'll pay you off, anyway.
In the games I got deep today I played between (12 and 20 %) of all hands
I think I open shoved 4 or 5 hands altogether, but I called more having some knowledge about opponents shoving range and taking them out.
Btw if your strategy works well why change it too much... ?
