Dazed and Confuzed
I have taken so much time to study, I have sat down with equilab and constructed my ranges for each position, my 3B ranges, 4B ranges, cold calling ranges, i have watched countless hours of video etc and I am still lacking the sucess I am striving for playing MTTs. I have small BR on 2 of the main sites I play on built mainly in cash games where I seem to have my success, but it is a very slow grind building your roll in micro cash games, especially because you will always hit a downswing due to variance. I keep trying to get into the low buyin tourneys with hopes to get a nice boost to my bankroll and allowing me to take shots at higher cash game stakes where I think I can have success as well. I am struggling to find my leaks when it comes to tourney play, i dont want to contribute it all to the variance of MTTs which i know is part of it but I am sure I am also making mistakes that are causing me to not make it to the money or even a final table at all. One area I know I am struggling with is the constant multiway limping and flat calls from multiple opponents when open raising with strong holdings. It seems like nobody can find the fold button at these low stake mtts and using aggression seems to get me in alot of trouble, especially preflop. Could someone that has longterm success as a Mtt player guve me some strategic advice, or insight to a could plan of attack to increase my chances of winning and binking a mtt for a nice payoff and boost to my bankroll. Or maybe i should stay at the cash tables and forget the MTTs for awhile.
