I know, I know and trust me that I know hat you can easily win money but also lose a lot, but let me tell you that this is a crazy new game mode and my question is... Is it the easiest way to exploit a game and make money? Should there be Bounty MTT's All in or Fold? Pre flop charts has been around for quite a long time and tables being (at least in the room I play) 4 handed so lot more could happen than regular 6max/full ring charts. I've lost 3 mtt's entry today, before ending session I hit the All in or Fold and recovered from the entries and also won a lot more, in 10 minutes... I know it is a crazy game mode but it isn't completely casino poker as Caribbean Poker (vs casino). Just want to read some opinions. :D:D:D

Personally a tournament like this for me would be very uninteresting. Just like how you may be frustrated in the early stages of a tournament where donks go all-in with any two cards, it takes away the strategy of betting and bluffing. Can't do much bluffing if your only bet is all-in.

I think pokerstars did try to introduce it last year, but did not hear about it thereafter.
Personally I do not see much difference between this and roulette, which has all the possibilities clearly defined as well.

Consider this, there are some people, who claim that poker is a sport and should belong to Olympics.
How can you defend this claim, with the game format like the above.

technically every no limit game you play can be an all-in or fold game, if you're brave enough.

Really I think that this format (All in or fold) is merely a way for the poker sites to get your $$$, it is no different than playing slots except the payout on slots can be bigger..I have to ask "What is the point?" Playing NLHE even on Micro stakes is more challenging and rewarding..Just my humble opinion:):):)

Might as well play slots

I think all in or fold is just gambling being sold to gamblers as poker as a way to incinuate that some skill is required. If you are interested in this you might as well play slots

I really miss the AIOF mtts, they were like a pure ICM test and no game was easier to multi-table.

IMO it is just a kind of gambling. It’s not really poker but it can be profitable for the poker rooms .

I think Allin or fold only makes sense in Hyper-Turbo format or as a shortstack.
Maybe if your opponents are too weak or too strong, you might still have the option of allin or fold in my opinion.
Because let’s say you push 50 or 100 BB deep all-in with A,A pair and everyone folds, you wasted a very good hand and only won the blinds with it.

it's very difficult to play tournament types so i don't like freezeout tournaments better.

Sit and go with limited player amount would work as all/in or fold KO but not tournament because of different stack sizes

tournaments with knockouts have a lot of such players who will play exactly this way, this is a complex strategy of the game as it gives a win or loss of 50/50, as an option you can play PL hold'em there is definitely no such thing

In freerolls this strategy works better than you would think it would--there are a lot of people that either want a big stack right off the start or if they lose they can do other things

I think that's why poker is so popular. There is no single solution for every situation.

The cool part about AIOF mtts is there is clear right or wrong play every time, its just an icm test.

Here you understand, today you are on a horse, and tomorrow the horse is on you. So gambling should be seen as entertainment, not a way to make money

I just worked in a casino and met a lot of people who flirted and tried to win back, most often they left without anything, and most often with debts

it's a way to make money, and fun, all-in or fold, it's more excitement for the poker tables.....
knowing how to play, it's worth the investment.

Don’t have the feeling I can improve my poker in this mode. It’s more like who has a better hand with A or any pairs

I think this type of game is like a lottery, more chances of you losing than winning, I prefer not to play,
