Whats so good about Mtts?
I love having cardschat to vent on its so forfilling!
So heres the thing, you pay a set amount, to potentially win 100 times your buy in or there abouts, sounds like fun.
but how many times have you played your best poker using the greatest strategys ever devised and come up short of the money? or better yet come out with less money than you would have in the same amount of time on a cash table.
Im more of a grinder cash table type, who likes to see results at the end of the hour, session, day kinda thing.
so i dont really play tourneys or sit and goes, for one main reason i dont see enough wins to justify playing them.
I have just been playing for about 40 mins in a $2, 180 player mtt on stars, and i had been playing super tight i got a win early on so i let the blinds go a little, it was getting to 200 blinds and my stack is back where i started 1550, i am 2 away from the bb, and i get dealt KK so i raise 600, it folds all the way to the button who raises me all in, i call. he shows JJ, board comes J 10 10 5 6.
the poker doesnt matter at this point but, recently i cant seem to get stuck into tourneys... because of hands like that, and it seems like if im short stacked at this point the tourney is pretty much over to lady luck.
Plus i prefer the poker in a cash table, i dont understand why im not good at long tournements as cash table games could be seen as the biggest tourney there is!
any advice? encouragement?
