Playing middle-range hands
I consider myself a decent tight-aggressive, but I have some serious problems breaking out of it. Playing TA is fine and all until you're card dead or figured out, and it's easy to become both during a tournament when you're only playing 15-20% of your hands. I do the easy stuff, pocket pairs, high connecters, suited ace-kickers, stuff that has good potential, but what about the 30% of your hands that seem tempting but have bad kickers, or are low connectors, or are better when you're in position (KJ, Q10, QJ). I find many of the tables and games I play are pretty loose and aggressive, and the people are hard to get a read on because they play so wide. Should I keep playing tight and let myself be bored? What about when the blinds get all nasty toward the end and K3o is starting to look sexy? Is it really all about patience here?
Also… what the hell's up with Q10? Why do I always lose with and to that hand?
