How do you beat someone that only plays all in everytime? Because that's what tournament play feels like
For me, it is the best to wait for very strong hand and to play against him. Very crucial and important advice I can give that you can note is that if you have that guy, who is playing every hand all-in, that does not mean that you are the person, who have to beat him. Because you are thinking that every hand he is all-in,he does not have nothing, and for example you have A5 and tell yourself ''yes, that is my chance now, he does not have nothing'', but this thinking is wrong. We all know that these kind of players, who are playing all-in every hand, they will be eliminated very fast, because they can not win every hand. You can deal with them with very strong hand, that is the best tip.
So the best way is to open your range a little bit.
In this situation you really have to take a chance in some spots.
You can't wait for AA or KK forever.
And the odds are working for you actually. Since your opponent can't receive good hands every single time. Is quite obvious his range probably sucks when he is playing this way. But a very important advice would be not playing crap hands just because he is a fish.
Choose your hands wisely.
But don't be a tight conservative in this spot.
If someone is all in all the time you have 2 choices, pick a hand and go for it, or hope someone else does.
I find that people make the mistake of taking these players on with poor holdings, meaning the all in player doubles up. Meanwhile you're sat there blinding down waiting for a good hand. It's worse if most of the table is sitting out and one idiot is nicking every pot by throwing all in.
I usually find when I decide to take them on that 3 or 4 others who had been folding come along for the ride and my game is over.
