Nope, sorry. One of the guys said one of the pros say that, not one of the pros!!!
I liked what you said, but I`m trying to get my head round the fact that if you play tight/ conservative early in a tourny you won`t lose as much cash, but you might catch. One pro says "money saved is as good as money won" The dilema I have is simple, Mathematically I know I am good, so working out pot odds
, etc I`m good at. Therefore, my style of play lends itself to a more tight game. I do feel, however, that I am probably not `passive` - I just try to pick the time to bluff. What I normally do if I bluff is if the other person shows strength I`ll fold quicker than a worker in a laundrette!!! I tend to bluff the same as I raise with a good hand, the idea being that they don`t pick up if its a bluff or a genuine raise. So to get me out of a pot they need to make a strong raise and then chance it is a bluff!!!
But, no, I`m not doing down what you say m8, just it was good to have 2 different perspectives!!!
