This is a discussion on Improve tournament game within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Greetings fellow pokerplayers,
I would like to improve my tournament game. Could you guys give me some pieces of advice on how to build up a
Best advice is to do the 30 day course here presented by Colin and Katie. Lots of great info on how to play and win at poker. I知 sure there are many more such free courses around as well. There痴 no quick answer here.
Oh yeah, I will take into account your piece of advice, it seems to be a good one. I will work hard on my game in order to get faster results. I am already playing tight at early stages, selecting my hand very carefully preflop. I guess, I still have to improve my post flop game.
In the game, everything depends on your skill.Giving advice can be harmful-because each player is different.I think that you already know a lot, but you are cunning-you want to learn tricks that are not yet known to everyone.Feel the game-if it gives you emotions, then you will understand everything yourself.Read more books and solve puzzles-this develops thinking-which will lead to results.At an early stage, play the top hand on the middle one, connect the same-sized connectors-everyone knows this advice and it will help you I do not know.Try to find something new before your brain is consumed by bad thoughts).
I would like to improve my tournament game. Could you guys give me some pieces of advice on how to build up a good stack at early and middle stages?
Thank you fellow pokerplayers!
At the very beginning of the tournament, we raise to 4 BBs because many players (especially at low limits) do not pay attention to the size of the raise in the big blinds. They just look - a lot or not. Because At the beginning of the tournament, the blinds are small, and the size of your raises will not impress anyone. Therefore, you need to raise at least 4 BBs, and if the table is more loose than tight, then all 5 BBs. Further, the sizes of the stacks are reduced, and there is no longer a need for such large raises. At the same time, we risk less in the hand if we raise less. This is especially true for raises with mediocre hands in late position - you just have to fold them to the call back.If someone has already limped into the pot before you (just called), then add 1 big blind for each limper to your raise. If you are going to reraise, then raise by 3 times the size of the original raise. If there were callers after the first raiser, then add one size of the initial raise for each caller. If the situation forces you to put more than half of your chips into the pot, go all-in right away.
Okey I get it. At least, I have to try to understand how the majority of players play their hands and make the difference by learning through books and tutorials. Thank God, there is Cardschat. I can start my journey of learning here.
The early stage is great for a wider game, don't be afraid to expand your range, the blinds are very good at allow this *(but play cards 28 or 39 it's not the best solution)), carefully study your opponents on the table. Do not rush to throw all in, play gradually and very carefully. I think, good tip when you see all 5 cards on the table and assess the situation on the river. Do not be afraid and do not forget to sometimes press the fold button this can be useful, especially at the beginning of the tournament
The middle stage, of course, is more calm, but it is necessary to show aggression, you can not completely go into a passive game, the blinds will kill you and there will be no hope for prizes. You must understand, that you needs keep your bank at an average level in order to compete for awards and, if possible, think about improving for the final stage
I think, you can talk about many more options, but these are the first ones that came to mind right away )) Good luck
