Well, the flaws in my logic occurs because of situations like this:
Game starts 5/10 current blind w/ 1000 chip stacks 10 players
We'll assume that I'm at CO with KdQd
Everyone limps to me (pot 75chips)
I raise 3bb + 1 for every limper (90chips)
Button, SB AND BB shoves...
Even With the fairly high implied odds
I don't want to risk my tournament life facing 3+ players. I figure had I played 2bbs I could have saved 70 with the same result, although I know this flawed logic allows drawing hands to creep in if noones fails to shove. It just seems like some idiots are always shoving... At least at game start anyway.
So I guess I use the play either at earlier game levels and also against players that I sense to be "bushwackers" (those that slow play monsters...) that will tend to spring their trap to quick when they realize I will NOT place enough money into the pot to make it worth their while to continue their deception.
Maybe some alternate suggestions here?; because I KNOW from reading and everything that this is the WRONG way to play, but it has helped me immensely. NOT as being a better player, but as surviving long enough through the above situations to eventually exercise standards I know to be correct to win the game...
Maybe when I finally move up limits I won't even imagine doing the above and laugh at how silly I'm playing now because I'm assuming that player's skill increase as well...
