Thanks for the tip. ill make sure to put that into my notes. I do tend to play some hands quickly in early stages. Hands that are marginal like suited connectors or ace high, king high.. but wouldn't they help if i play them as well ? because I can't keep folding and suddenly get hit with AK or top pairs and opponent finally sees me raising, they arent going to play back if i act so often.
or lets say I pass the 1st break, and im still in, i start feeling good and know who my opponents are, should I be opening up if im already in the money, or should i play tight or loose, open up hands, 3 betting, calling all ins against small stacks. I want to allow myself to show some kind of strength, but i also don't want to get caught up being tricky. I think ill have to focus on it once I start feeling comfortable. I don't use a HUD, i know this is going to be downer against these big tourneys. Hopefully my read is going to help me make something .
