What do you prefer? All in preflop or after the flop or to make a decision after the river? I prefer to see the river at online poker.

When making a decision, I prefer to rely on all possible factors: position, stage of the tournament, proximity of the bubble, opponent's playing style. In most cases, I prefer to get as many chips as possible.

Depends on your stack size preflop and the stack to pot ratio post flop.

In poker, everything is relative. There is no such thing as necessarily this or that. And this relativity always depends on many factors. How can you say that I prefer it like this.

If allyn means with a couple with a small one, there are more chances of doubling than with a big one. but generally I like to see the flop ...

There are many factors to analyze before making any decisions, and you will never have a correct answer for each spot.

Depending on the situation, I prefer to see the flop before all in

It is of course best to look at preflop. But if the stack is less than 10bb, then it's better to go all-in.

If the river is safe and I'm sure of my hand, then I can go all in. I don't see the point in putting myself at risk when the stack is good for the game. The last card in the river can change the balance of power.

I understand the logic of the all in at 10bb, however if your opponents are too loose you need to tread carefully. Shoving JQ becomes less profitable when your opponent will readily call you with K3s. There are many situations where I will make smaller preflop raises like 2.25x to 2.5x and rely on my skill on the flop- even with smaller stack sizes of 8-12bb. If I do this frequently you have a better chance of someone playing back at you when you have a monster. If you get shoved and your hand is less than premium you can make a decision to fold with your tournament life intact, or call based on pot odds and your perception of your opponent. This is how I play.

Oh I play almost exclusively 6 max tourneys where this strategy has been super effective for me. In larger MTT this will not work so well. You gotta get your stack in and scoop up those antes, or hope to double up.

It depends on the position, the blinds, the chips you have and many many more. Especially in tournaments, i personally go all in preflop with pairs higher than 7, or AKs, but also it depends with the factors that i already refered to.

I'd rather see the flop before I go all-in

That depends on lot of factors like stake, position, stage in tourneys and so on

Unless you wish to exit quickly, I would refrain from an all- in situation unless I know I have the pot, hands down.

Impossible to answer a not even general question without any details, what you play, how you play, structure, blind levels, position etc., etc.

I prefer to be all in preflop as I don't have confidence that I am good enough to not punt money post flop. Despite this, most of the time I am all in post flop.
