Last season in our pub poker tournament circuit was my first season of live poker I had ever played. I done really well, taking home 9 wins and leader of 2 venues and top 10 in the state I live in.
Being the new kid on the block and doing so well has put a target on my back and now because of my play style, which I believe is LAG. I have a lot of players that will play any 2 cards to try and 'donk' me and put me on tilt and its starting to work. I raise 3x 4x sometimes as high as 10x preflop. What else can i do to throw these players off my back.
My only suggestion is what ever method of play you used in the past, keep with it. Try to keep your cool and you should prevail again. As soon as you start knocking them out, maybe they will start backing off. Give 'em a good kick in the butt.
