Is this a good MTT strategy if u wanna win ???
I have just been playing in a $20 buy in MTT @ ladbrokes poker
Me and one of their top guys who plays poker for a living - `decision` is his poker alias - were heads up early in a tourny. Here is what happened.
I am in late position with AQ hearts. A few check around to me, including this guy, so I raise 5 times bb. Everyone folds apart from Decision who calls. ( We are both on about same in chips) Flop Kc, Qc, Jh. He checks, so I raise size of pot (300 chips) he calls (the swine must have the K???). Next card Ac giving me 2 pair, A`s and J`s. he checks, I raise pot size again. He pushes me all in so I am thinking `flush` or AK (If AK I thought he would have raised pre flop) - but with four outs, and against a guy who will not be a top player only betting with the nuts, I call. He turns 2 pair K`s J`s. I am ahead with A`s J`s. He is on a flush draw with his K clubs. As it happens, he hits his draw and knocks me out!!!
The questions are:-
- Did I make the right call - My reading of the player was correct, I was ahead - but he could have easily had flush - chance I felt I had 2 take.
- Did he make the right call - Top player at Ladbrokes (check out their site, u will see!!!)
- Is this how to play MTT - take a chance like we both did hear, double up and you are away, but accept you could also be bust!!!
Comments, as always, appreciated.
