How do you decide what cards to play? (Tournaments)
In a tournament I won't play anything but the following hands (This still depends on the kind of bets that I see).
QQ,QJs(Love High suited connectors),QJo, JJ, and JTs ....and occasionally if I am in the big blind I splash with QTs, but try to avoid QTo situations since i've gotten in trouble.
Beyond this I will play the low pocket pairs, but if it's under JJ and I receive a hefty raise I will fold (especially when more than 2 players are in the hand).
I will definitely call the minimum bets though, and go splashing for Trips. I will admit that occasionally If I am pretty secure with an amount of chips that I will go swimming with any suited cards that show a face (ie. A5s, K3s) because I've hit my Flushes with these hands.
Does the Robotic Playing tecnique have usually promising results? I've done great when I stick to the big dog cards, but I still don't miss those suck outs...
