I don't know if cash games have different starting hand ranges to MTTs, but in the first Gripsed video that I watched he shows tier 1 hands as being:
AA KK QQ JJ AKs AQs AJs ATs KQs
I haven't seen KQs appearing in any of the tournament books that I've read so far and ATs has generally not been treated as tier 1, yet he specifically says that you should be happy getting all of your money in with any of these hands.
I feel nervous shoving AKo and I probably wouldn't feel confident shoving KQs in the early stages of a tournament, unless it was desperate times and I had less than 10bb, for example.
Is he talking about cash games?
Well first I dont like getting whole roll into any hand preflop or happy about any hand myself that is not already the nutts lmao.
I am a person who wants to see flops go from there. Depending on stakes player level etc.. my number of hands go down I play raise call with etc..
If never go all in I dont lose.
So patience and instinct.
Position etc.. is just too many factors. Is this person likely from history to all in 55 from in first position after blinds? I probably call qj suited if catching cards too many factors involved.
I take good notes on people. The really good ones I know from here give respect more than most people I play lol. Yet have seen their styles a little and results etc.. Folded ak suited in an event another forum today. Cause is a lot of people from here two all ins was qq kk and the tourney structure is kinda turbo early like 5th hand. I wont do that often again lol with that forum. This one probably. Even though they had quality hands the structure really was right for a call. Was first event with them watched a bunch of tables the level of play is not as good as here imho. Is some of same people though so will be careful but that was my one chance then went card dead totally and was basically blinded off lol early.
So would I call all ins with all those hands no depends on too many things would I push all in off bat with those no not unless blinded down.
I want my aa kk hands to pay I constantly am playing them different mixing up game. Is mostly instinct though for those hands. Feel of what is going on want to get fully in fully paid. So have to think it through. Board has to make sense they hold up etc..
