I would begin and end as if I am a poker star...folding when I'm supposed to...weeding out the garbage players from the good ones.. realizing that every hand isn't my hand no matter how good my cards my look...for example someone just won the last hand with trip queens...on this hand im dealt a king queen what are the chances im going to win this hand with my king queen . Patience and don't bluff until the end table because ppl will call you with an 8 duece unsuited just because

Good afternoon my friend ! That's exactly the total focus on the table to identify the children of the adults and to play the best with each hand that everything goes well.

I believe that tournaments of this type should be played with a lot of wisdom and security, because there will be many skilled players, so we have to play with more attention and security

I don't think we need to play well and badly somewhere. Each player has a different level, and no matter how much you want to play in the freeroll or in the 109 tournament, it will be the same. The main thing is patience, which cards will not give you, play carefully);)

Hi.
In the initial and intermediate stages, I would play very carefully, only with strong cards. At a later stage, I would play more risky and more aggressive.
Good luck.

There should be no difference
If you are patient and play the right hands, then everything should go well

at the start of the game I play wide but taking care to choose hands that have preflop potential. in the middle of the game if I have a good stack I start to tighten my game. I avoid playing against too aggressive players who go in too often. at the end of the game I tighten my game even more and I only play max hands aggressively to reduce the effect of variance on my game.

Just like in other tournaments. And naturally I would adjust my game to the opponents at the table. I think many who have experience in tournament games have developed their own game.

Unfortunately, I have too little experience with high buy-ins, but I suppose that due to buy-ins in tournaments there is not much difference in the game itself !!!

I don't think you should change your style of play depending on the amount of buy-in. Of course, each player must have their own special strategy for the game, but you must know or adhere to some of the features of the game of poker. Don't open 27 and don't make very big and stupid bets :). The initial stage of the tournament is an opportunity to study opponents and increase your Bank for further tournament. Maybe you should expand the range of hands and positions, but not be super aggressive). The middle stage is passed slowly and with a very narrow range of hands. The main rule is that if you want to count on prizes, at the final stage your Bank must be above average (example: top 100-200), if the tournament is very large. Don't forget to keep an eye on the players and don't make stupid bets. The number of chips at this stage is very important! It's better to throw it away and stay in the game than to take the risk and lose everything! good luck ;)

I normally play < $5.50 ABI, so when I won a $109 ticket from pokerstars I decided to play a PKO event. Simple reason: a single KO would already make a difference to my bankroll.

My approach was to play just this single table, pay lots of attention to the action and take notes on the players. I ended up cashing for almost $300.

I know a guy who started playing micro, he crumpled the field. And over time he was pushing the limits.
Today he plays the higher limits and says it is much more difficult, as opponents put you in many difficult situations post-flop.
For those who are not used to playing higher limits, and going to play a tournament like this, I think you need to run very well to at least reach itm.

How do you find out fast who is good and who is bad in an online tournament or a freeroll?:confused:

To win at poker, you have to play well. For tournament poker, you need a little more because the winnings are split only among the players in the ITM. This, in turn, can create a misperception of one's own game. You can play your best game on long evenings and still have convenience foods and cereals on the water. The RNG will judge everyone, and those who are unlucky in a deep tournament go to bed!
This is largely the case for classic MTT players, whose prizes, although unlikely, could be many times the buy-in. Sit'N Go and Spin'N Go players still have different points of view.
Tournament poker player needs: time; endurance; basic poker skills; special skills and knowledge of a tournament poker player; correct psychology; a given game strategy;
