This is a discussion on Play Small-ball Poker within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; what do you guys think about this strategy??and is this strategy a tight agressive play? (i guess i've heard at negreanu about it first time)
Unless you can hand read well, dont even go there.

This is only for real tables. You have to look at your opponents and get tells. On the internet it does not work well. Also you have to play for money. In any freeroll this play won't work beause off all agressive al-inn's, from players who think any two cards can win

Never could get play small ball to work. Above poster said real tables and that make sense i guess. Maybe mid online tournament? People seem to be less aggressive mid tourney unlike when it get down to the last few tables or early when they are constantly trying to double up.

re: Poker & Play Small-ball Poker
That strategy will be only on SST Small Stack Strategy you only call with the top top cards, on regular Tournaments you will go out as soon as the Blinds increases.
