tournaments vs cash or ring games
Hello all. Busy refining your poker skills? Glad to hear it. Right I've won a couple of single table tournaments and i try every freeroll going. I'm slightly up on my winnings at the moment through the ring games, i have the patience of a saint for them. But the thing with tourney play, especially multi table is, because the blinds go up, the same strategy that i use for ring games dont occur that often for multi tourney play.
Which do people out there prefer? I'm refering to the title of this thread. Is it better to accumulate chips early, or sit back until it's worth fighting for the blinds in multi tourney play? Is sitting back (as i tend to do in ring games) asking for trouble in multi table tourney, and when you do fight for the blinds, is it an obvious ploy on tight players behalf to start fighting for the blinds like a mad man?
I know I have to observe other players play ,and improvisewhen i see their patterns, but sometimes, you get swapped to another table to even numbers out, and you haven't got enough chips to tread the water if you get my drift. (I'm a beginner so a lack of chips in tourney may not be a problem for you!) Anway that's the end my long query/rant! ps if the same thread has been started before, apologies.
