This is a discussion on What is your mindset entering a MTT within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Hey guys!
The title pretty much says it all, so I am curious if you guys have a mindset if you're joining an MTT/SnG's tournaments and
I like the way you change your gear in different scenarios and I'd like to say that's the perfect gear routine in tourneys and it would just depend on your skills for you to actually win it.
and yeah they say cash game is where the real poker player grinds and the tournament is just like the dessert of it but at the moment I only play in freerolls.
P.S: I ****ing love Russ music and that in particular
I've found that a lot of more thought-out rap lyricists have scarily accurate lyrics to the lifestyle/mentality of a poker grinder. If you replace 'rap game' with 'poker' and replace 'slaying beats' with 'sucking tables dry' etc, there is so much linkage between rap and poker.
There is an artist, Chris Webby, who literally makes ACTUAL poker references in his raps and I don't know if it's intentional and if he began as a poker grinder or something.
Listen to this rap and analyse his metaphors, there is so much poker referencing in it even shark-like simile at some point I think:
russ looks a lot like I do especially the hair and stuff. If I didn't wear a bandana normally or kept my hair more trimmed and was a little darker than I am then we'd basically be twins (I'm actually half sri lankan just happened to be a lot whiter than brown).
I'm pretty tight and looking to get it all in when I have a monster. I will let aggressive players take the lead when I have a monster and let them hang. If that's not working out for me I don't mind taking some coin flips, you are going to have to win a few of those to do well.
