40 man live tournament strategy
Ok so i play my live tournament twice a week and i have one coming up tonight...
Its a league and the winner of the league after 15 weeks, wins a ps3 or whatever...
I came 2nd last season by 5 points (or ONE appearance without even making the final table) lol
So what im trying to say is ive been doing this for a while and i know what im doing, but, i want to try something different tonight...
Its a 40 man tournament, blinds starting out at 100 /200 going up every 15 minutes and we start with about 18 000 chips
I finish at the final table every week, without fail, but, i sometimes get there slightly short stack, or extremely HUGE stacked, and i cant quite work out what im doing differently...
I start the tournament very aggressive, playing most hands while the blinds are low, firing continuation bets and quite a few bluffs, which works out well.. when the blinds get to around 1000 /2000 im usually on about 35 000 or so, and there are about 20 players left, by the time we hit 3000 /6000 we are about 14 left... .
How would you play this tournament, start out aggressive and then tighten up, or start out tight and losen up?
I feel the first option is the best for tournament poker..
Let me know your thoughts
