This is a discussion on Smart players don't rely on intelligence within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; I just wrote my latest blog on using 'intelligence' on other players to make decisions in tournaments. Let me know what you think.

Good points. If you play with people regularly you can certainly get a good feeling about them, but if you are playing in an MTT with a bunch of strangers, then reliable intelligence is going to be difficult.
play each game as if it was the first time you ever met the people you playing against ,every game is different and you know damn well the real players have noted you when theyve played you , the mind game gets intense at that point so unless you got a read ,play the game your way and dont get involved in the meta game lol (unless its EPT UKIPT or WPT lol then i fully expect to see brain freeze hahah
