[quote=LaserCats;1910377]Most tourneys as antes start - I'm not playing chips voluntarily without a real strong hand.
So are you saying you only play strong hands and nothing else? How can you play being so damn tight? Who would even call you, when you do raise?
If you have a strong hand you shouldnt play it so that you can "get away from it"... bet more like 5x BB to let them know your serious
So if we get AA, we bet like 5X, so they all know we have a strong and (This is btw, after you were being sooooooooooooo damn tight all game long, and Someone will just call us, because they think we're bluffing, after not raising anything for a long period of time?
you just have to ram it up their but with your qq, jj , kk, aa...If they hit the set it want your day.
Once again, "Ram it up their", If we "Ram it up there", we potentially risk losing a massive pot, or end up winning a smallish pot pre, and by potentially risk I mean, since know one would call a ridiculous raise size from a tight player without a real hand, common sense leads 1 to think you'd only win a small pot, maybe I'm wrong?
if flop is very obviously not going your way 3 suited... you can stil get away from it and have 40% to 60% of your stack left
By these figures I'm assuming you raise half your stack size pre flop?
These days you just can't afford to play weak hands timid - foldem and play premiums stong as hell. If you think you can steal blinds you still need to represent AA, KK ,QQ so y play it differently?
The reason for playing AA and a bluff differently is because when (and it will happen), you do end up getting caught you don't want to be stuck into calling because of pot odds
, that's why smaller raise would be better because smaller raise=smaller C-Bets=More attempts to steal and take it down post flop, Just my rational is all?
We all get premiums 90% of the tournys we play if your patient enough.
I Just don't understand where you came up with those figures
