re: Poker & Finishing Deeper
Set vs. set is just too unlikely, if ur getting it in with a set and someone has a higher set thats just a cold deck... dont worry about that.
Tips for getting deeper:
- Don't play to just cash, play to win the tournament. Dont look at the bubble and say "if i play tight here I will cash..." it leads to too small of a chipstack fight after the bubble.
- Don't worry about your position in the overall tournament, only be comparing your stack to those around you. If you really want to measure your capability to succeed and win the entire tournament, keep your chipstack measured against the avg as that is middle of the field.
- When play tightens up around the bubble, you must learn to be able to steal blinds and antes, this allows you to keep your chipstack up to at least the same level, if not increasing it slowly.
- After the bubble, play should loosen up, especially in larger fields. This means you should tighten up and wait for better cards to go after people. This wont work if your shortstacked, if you are, wait for position and shove with any good looking starting hand.
