Final Table (MTT & SnG)
Lets set the scene here. I usually play in low buy-in MTTs, but slightly more than most idiots would pay to avoid the constant all ins for the first half hour. My Sngs vary, anywhere between $2.50 to $20 buy ins, 6/10 players.
In MTTs, I frequently make it inside the bubble, and usually quite comfortably and without having to play too cautious with blind stealing etc. Problem is, once im in the bubble, or even at the final table I seem to either stop getting the cards or I get the cards and the flop flips me the bird. Is this common or is it just that now im in the final table I stop taking chances on cards etc?
In SnGs I like to establish myself as either the chip leader/aggressor or wait and see if someone else takes that role and I can just play the premium cards when they come. Again when it gets to final 3, I seem to feel like im being bullied (if im not chip leader). And think everyones bluffing
and become a calling station if I am chip leader.
I have no idea what can be done to change either of these but as always input/advice is always welcome! Im sure there are plenty of others with similar scenarios!
