I've gotta fling some poop at this ^ one.
Doubling early doesn't mean shit.
Attacking players with short stacks isn't necessarily optimal at all unless those shortstacks are never playing back like they should be (you'd be better off targetting mid-sized stacks than shorties... as shorties will often be re-shipping back on you & you'll likely be pricing yourself in to call them if you're raising on them regularly).
Also, why stay away from big stacks? I like playing vs. big stacks. (bad players with big stacks = 'big pots' = Yay!).
When people say "Play to win". What exactly is that supposed to mean? Is it > take higher variance lines while saying fk it to ICM? Care to elaborate?
