This is a discussion on Tournament help much needed within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; After returning to poker from an absence I feel I need some advice,help or criticism.
I'm playing on Stars and when I enter tournaments there
If you play poker again after a long time, i think you need some learning. Even if you know the basics of poker, no harm to repeat. The most important thing is to build knowledge on solid foundations, your situation is a great opportunity!
After taking time off, sometimes the play changes and people act differently. I suggest playing a micro stake and see how the play is compared to what it was when you played. If it's much looser or tighter, adjust to your style.
If you can make it to the bubble you are good enough to win. You have to realize that strong hands are insanely good now. However, position playing now is crucial.....regardless of your 2 cards. Bet into people hard.....you'll be surprised. Bold is the Gold.
