With a gigantic stack in front of me I'll splash around with speculative stuff often, because I'm deep so I have good implied odds.
I never said I fold too much. I never even implied it. I said I protect my chips.
Many people just play every hand when they have tons of chips. They chase, spew, etc. Look at them in 45 mins, and they are all in for $57, and get felted. That is what I try to avoid
I do not spew. I play the same way I did to build the stack initially. I might take a chance here or there on a draw, thinking of the implied odds of stacking someone.
There is nothing wrong with playing conservative when you have 3 buy-ins in front of you. I still get action when I have the goods.
