This is a discussion on WIN PLACE or SHOW within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; I have read alot of post here about all in players and bab beats. I play mostly Sit&Go tournys . 1.5 years of online poker
I have read alot of post here about all in players and bab beats. I play mostly Sit&Go tournys . 1.5 years of online poker and I realy have only one thing learned that I think is worthie of passing on. You will always find over agressive players just like you will find pepole playing to tight (the easy pickin kind) . the thing to do is not get upset and go on tilt or make bad calls to try to shut up the "all in guy" it is to stay focused and wait for the right time . Hopeing he dosn't get lucky and beat your trip 10's with his connected suiters. I stick to one goal WIN PLACE OR SHOW I stay focused every second of every hand in every game Play the best poker I can and almost alwayes finish in a paying seat It would be nice to finish them all in first but as long as I WIN PLACE or SHOW I make money and increase my bank roll to move up to higher Tourneys The best thing about W P or S is that so many times I get to the final 3 or 4 with the least chip count (some times very short stacked) and end up in first GL all hope this will help someone!!!!!!!

I agree but when you lose your AA to an Aq off suit it makes you very upset when they manage to find a four leaf clover and a rabbits foot all at the same time but i guess they had some outs and manage to get more than lucky thanks for the info though tazz

re: Poker & WIN PLACE or SHOW
True Tazz, but when you lose on the bubble on a bad beat, it's hard to shrug and say "That's poker." I'm with you though. As long as you finish in the money, it was a successful tourney.
