, I originally read this thread when it was initially posted; I had no comments @ that time since this was a strategy I wasn't familiar with or had even thought about trying.
Recently I read that David Sklansky had developed an all-in or fold strategy for peeps to play in the WSOP
w/o any poker knowledge? Not really sure if this would transition well to an online environment though.
The primary factor = 'good' players are not too likely to risk his/her entire tournament life w/o a big edge.
Skanlsky All-in or Fold System Basic Overview
Key # >>> (Stack/[Total Blinds + Antes]) x (# of players still to act) x (# of limpers + 1)
ie: 4th position, 4000 chips, blinds = 100/200, 1 limper, 6 left to act
1. 4000/300 = ~13
2. 13 x 6 (left to act) = 78
3. 78 x 2 (1 limper + 1) = 156
unless otherwise indicated:
- 400+ >>> A.A
- 200-400 >>> above or K.K
- 150-200 >>> above or Q.Q or A.K
- 100-150 >>> above or J.J or 10.10 or A.Q or K.Q
- 80-100 >>> 2.2-A.A or A.K or A.Q or K.Q or A.Xs or suited connectors 5.4+
- 60-80 >>> 2.2-A.A or A.X or K.Q or K.Xs or 1-gap & no-gap suited connectors
- 40-60 >>> above or K.X
- 20-40 >>> above or 2 suited cards
- < 20 >>> ATC
So in the above example, I guess the peep would shove with A.A or K.K or Q.Q or A.K.
I haven't read Skanskly's book Tournament Poker for Advanced Players
yet so I don't know if I might have missed some steps and/or other pertinent info but it was developed MTT (which was your ??? in the OP). Something to consider...
