Something basic I noticed in tournament play.
I was playing a tourney.
At one point, the blinds got huge.
Let's say $3k/$6k when most stacks were under $20k.
You were going out very soon, one way or another.
Everyone was very tight, and folding except whoever was SB and BB.
Sometimes, SB would call..
Was this an opportunity to start betting?
With a marginal hand, I bet 4x the BB and got the $9k ante, which is no joke. I knew they would fold.
I remember once you're at 20BB, it's time to start shoving with anything decent. Here people were at like 2 or 3BB and were folding over and over.
This was being played wrong?
