Continuing to Setup your Opponent
Here is a tactic/stragety I've been working on for a while. Trying to iron out some kinks.
I would like some feed back and constructive criticism.
This works both under MTT and cash games, will work against players whom pay attention to you aka better players, donks wont notice.
The basic premise of the idea is to play as if you are a learning/adjusting Noob, using this to bluff.
What the plan is, early, is first to convince the table you're a noob. This is accomplished several ways.
-One limp into pots and fold to bets. This is a slower way that can cost you chips, I don't prefer this one but it works if all I am getting is low suited cards. I can see flops tryin to hit while lookin like a donk.
-Over slow play the nuts, this one I like best. This play can set you up for a whole session. You show the nuts and how you didn't get your value.
Next step is to start bluffin. I like to mirror the early slow play with the nuts, Except the next step is to bet the river. It looks like the noob has, once again the nuts, BUT this time he wants to get some money, a pro player will fold unless he has a pretty good hand thinkin he has you figured out.
After this has occured, playing the role you do. You bet hard pre-flop and on the flop. This move looks exactly like the noob is now fet up with getting no money with his hands and wants to start getting chips in the pot.
At this point people will fold to your pre flop raise, allowing you to take down blinds almost at will, in a MTT this become invaluable at some point.
You could, and I do, use this exact formula for the opposite effect. Play a monster as the noob bluff, you know Over betting, and getting calls.
What do you people think? I'll prob re-read this and have to edit the hell out of it lol!
