- It is better to see more hands in a MTT.
- It is better to see less hands
for my part at the start of the game I play wide and the more I advance in the game the more I tighten my game. because it allows me to decrease the effect of the variance and improves my luck to reach the final table.
If you are asking about how many hands your table sees as opposed to the other tables in the tournament, I think it varies. I like to see more hands early in the game. This allows for more chances to increase your stack size. As blinds increase and we get closer to the money, fewer hands is preferred. At this point, I am looking to maintain my stack and survive past the cutoff. This is a great time to increase stack size, but if the cards aren't coming, blinds can eat away earlier gains.
Once into the money, each bust means more profit, so less at your table is better. Let the other tables weed out their players through competition and blinding down. If two tables of five are left, the players at the one playing one hand every two minutes should survive longer than the players seeing three hands per minute.
All this said, I always act too fast. I seldom take more than a couple seconds to make my decisions, even though I know I should give myself more time. When I'm not playing, I often promise myself I'll count to five before each call/raise. During the games though.... call me quick click.
re: Poker & Which of the following statement is true?
My opinion, and many others. big players, which, of course, the more you see, the more likely you are to get into a good game. after all, you can't win chips if you don't take part in the game, this is a classic remark.
Every citizen has his opinion which is the most correct !!
