This is a discussion on Favorit poker strategy type. within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Hi guys i would like to have a word about ur strategy of playing. I do only play suited cards from 9 to A and
I like making my opponents think what I want them to think. like if I have the nuts or them beat I act like i'm bluffing so I can get the most chips out of them. if I know they don't have anything I pretend I have something with the board to make them fold. all with timing and chip counts/betting.
Obviously cash and tournament very different tournament being survival. Nobody can say being tight is not right.. but if you're at the table a long time you might not get called so often... people know your range. Plus you're not really exploiting when you have the chance.. exploiting can backfire of course, so can Tite play. Play fun and profitable. OMC might not be so fun especially online.
I can't say for sure, but I don't think it's the best strategy for big tournaments or long distances. How successful are you now? It is impossible to say or determine exactly the range of hands or positions when you should play or not. I think poker is not a simple game to easily determine the best options for the game. I repeat that the main thing is the opponents at the table and your number of chips, only on this depends how you can play. Of course, it is necessary to have a strategy, but I think you are very limiting yourself.. There are certain rules not to play very bad cards, it is true, but even these rules are very often broken by very experienced players...
Every Player has to figure out for themselves what works for them and fits their comfort level and natural style of play. Keep a list of notes on how you will play, what works, what does not work... keep refining this list over time...
Watch teaching audio / video... this will trigger new concepts. Some you may not be comfortable with and you will discard, others will resonate and you can incorporate into your game. Also, be prepared for a surprise, as your experience and game develops, you might re-visit some of those earlier discarded concepts and be able to start incorporating them into your game.
Also, different types of games may require different strategies... not to even mention different phases of each type of game... oh well, you get the idea... it is a never ending quest to improve your game.
