Thanks everyone for pitching in! And I agree, the cover all scenario would be too broad and cumbersome to cover. But as I said I am fairly new to the MTTs so please don't mind if I do not have any valid questions here. Also if there is some good material out there can someone link them here? As for the books, I have read the Harrington volumes (part 1 & 2), are there any others I should be reading? I had purchased the Kill everyone but have not dug into it yet.
And just so you know, I play solely on 888
, the Level 30 & below plus the "Go for Gold" free rolls. I get ITM like 20-30% but have never made it very far. Therefore I am not really sure what I should be asking or studying for these structures. A general guideline (brief of course) would be very helpful for the different levels with some hand selection and whether to flip for it in these levels.
I do understand that posting a specific situation here would be more useful then asking for general guidelines so ill start tagging these situations going forward for posting and analysis. For now this is all I can think of:
For the 5-6 min level tournaments:
-Should I play hands as per position?
-Should I be flipping with Ok premium hands like AJ+, 88-JJ in the early stages? Also if I have these hand and 1 or many are already all in? How safe do I play before the bubble or how much should I value my tournament life?
-If I get to the flop with a strong starting hand but missed it or am on draw, should I be betting or calling or just fold and give up? (generally of course, as everything is so situation specific)
-Should I completely stay away from bluffing
-With tables changing so fast how do I get a read on the crazy villains?
-What HUD stats should I be heavily relying on for tournaments? Also what ideal stats should I be having?
For the 2min level tournaments:
-Is there any point of c/r apart from AI? Anything other than all in seems like leaking chips where are far too valuable here.
-I often find myself dwindling on the 1-3 M, does that mean I should even be shipping with the likes of Jx or 67s/o?
-I get that luck has a lot to do with super turbo but a short strategy would be really helpful and I hope not that cumbersome.
