re: Poker & Do your MTT strategies differ from your STT strategies?
Osmann is right on here.
MTT it is more about acumulating chips and avoiding slow played hands that can cost you. You want to accumulate chips so that you can start to put pressure on the smaller stacks and pick blinds up when you can. I am very loose and aggressive early on. Nobody wants to go out in the first couple of blind levels so all-ins and large raises won't get called as often. Once you start seeing short stacks, then it comes time to steal blinds and aviod large confrontations. I like to win small pots that keep me there, I am not looking to really knock people out. I will gamble alittle more on draws and bluff more with continuation bets to keep the pressure on the smaller stacks.
STT it is more about patience and waiting for the one hand that can make your game and get you into the money. Here the first couple of blind levels are all about feeling each other out because you know nobody will move into their seat when they are gone. I look for the person I think I can bully or take advantage of later. You need to make quick reads on the others so you know what to do when the blinds are up at a higher level.
