Just picked up the game and looking 2 improve
I took up poker at age 50.
I play once a week (10k chips for £10, unltd. buy-ins for 1st hr)
at my local pub and do quite well on a table of 5-10.
I have only once been below third place in the last 4 months.
I also play online at Replay and played around 12 - 15 MTT over Xmas, mostly freerolls
with 100 - 400 players.
I won 1 tourney, got to last two tables c. 5 times and was in top ten 3 times.
Attached are my replay stats. I feel I am pretty patient, but might VPIP too often. Any advice anyone?
Also, at very late stages (last two tables) I see 1-2 people shoving and I tend to switch to being highly aggressive.
From being massive chip leader, or ahead of most others, I sometimes lose my entire stack in 1-2 rounds, undoing all the good tight work over the last hour.
I think I must remember to play position, stay as tight as before, and risk a fold even with lots in the pot, if I encounter resistance to 1-3 large bets, just to stay in the game, instead of losing all my chips doing a final all in on the river. Any advice on this?
