I am bleeding out with the blinds and sometime's i call the bb to see the flop with a ok hand and totaly miss it. What should you guys do on 888 poker? play SNG's or cash game's. And does someone have any tips in winning it againt ''soft'' players.
Every tip will help me. I am really trying hard to make profit (even when it is$ 0,10 per hour) I just dont know why I am not building BR.
I can tell you from experience the small buy in tournaments are fantastic for bankroll building.
your looking at anything from 150-600 runners on average , pokerstars can be 6,000 or more.
your chance of final table is way higher,
the 20 seat sit n go $3.00 is soft as hell, you'l lose half the field and double up by just waiting for solid hands and playing in position sensibly sucking value from callers.
By the time the bad Aggro maniacs are gone players clam up alot of steal opportunitys.
Alot of players limp, not many understand strategy, it tends to be crazy aggressive donkish wide range,
and nitty players waiting to catch the bad players...
you wanna try and find the balance somewhere in beetween tight and aggressive, and feed off both, without becoming over active.
again with the tournaments large fields just play a solid range try to avoid calling spec from early position because of over raisers and multiway pots,
just keep it simple strong hands aggressive,
and isolating pots when theirs not to many callers and picking players off, Taking pots or getting payed off.
once you get really deep players will tighten up in the tournaments close to the big money, its kind of like a mass donk free for all and then last 40-30 players their dropping their pants for you if your stacking well
and that really sounds wrong!
