A couple of things. First, if you follow that school of thought, then why fold anything ever? I mean, the odds of flopping a full house on any two unpaired cards is exactly the same, so why not see them all? Second, in a tournament every chip is precious. Multiply that call that was "only 30 chips" by the five times you chose to see a flop with nothing in the hole, and there's a $150 big blind down the road you've already blown. Third, it's bad discipline. Don't do anything stupid at the $30 level that you wouldn't do at the $3,000 level. The value of your cards isn't dictated by the size of the blind or your stack. AA is still good and rags are still rags.Prysm said:Imagine being delt 2 7 off and folding when it would have just cost you 30 of your chips to stay... and the flop comes 2 7 7. And a guy goes allin bluffing. You just missed a great potential to hike up your stack real early.
"In the early positions, you only want to play AK or better. If I am holding AQ (suited or unsuited) or worse in the first four seats, I don't want to put even a dime into the pot during the first few levels.2bithoe said:What are the best hands you should play in a tournament.
