Whether you play in No Limit Tournaments, Pot Limits, or fixed limit Hold’em, you will find that many players play very loose, and many players will think they have knowledge of the game that supports their VPIP.
I am not going to names the particular hands that enable this play, but the hands that stand out leave a distinct impression on the mind. They are generally hands that can not be justified, either by mathematics, probability, or common sense.
Overcards present a problem for both Blanc and McDermott. In their view these hands are hands that must be identified early in the hand, and once against them, the few remaining players are going to hold their collective breath to see what will pop up on the river. In the event that an ace or king shows up, they are going to be busted on the flop, and may fold an anual blind bet, even though it is not reasonably probable that you hold the ace or king.
I am not going to identify what specific hands you must identify, because the only hands you are going to play pre-flop are the hands you are going to continue with once the flop comes out. If you are in a six-handed game, then you will have six hands into the hand, and three of them will be reasonably happy. The six other hands, you will have to let go of. The quick and euphoric feeling of the first hand is not going to continue for long if you are on a nightmare run of cards.
This is a hand you will not be able to perfectly play in a six-handed game, because six-handed is a game where position is important, and it is not that important in a six-handed game. Most of the time a hand will just be lost on the dance floor because the partner thinks it is unplayable, and they blind out. If you blind out, you will have no chance of moving up the put chips into the middle.
While Becoming Patient
In the event that you are not able to move the lead, and your partner is getting better than you, then the move should be made to reduce the probability of you continuing the hand. If you are notpatient enough to wait for the eight or nine, the game is up. This is especially true if your partner is getting active later than you are.TA bets SD, making it 24 hands later and 24 hands into the hand. That puts the pressure on the tight passive player to make a move, because if he lets the ball go all the way only to lose a pot, he is going to be barrowed back in.
Now you are making moves with good hands, you have to be able to execute on your later hand rather than waiting like a mouse waiting for the pigeon to jump onto the roof. It isprime time to mix up your play and including some blind stealing during the later bet in addition to the semi-bluff.
If you are not stealing in position, when you have good position, you cango all-in with any good hands. If you are playing perfect dewabet, when you have perfect position, you should be able to beat anyone at any point in the game. You don’t have to win every battle, but to win the chess match you are usually going to need to play. keys to queens and kings
For an eight or nine the best case scenario is to have the smallest stack and be last to act. An all-in wager to try to steal will probably only work if you have a good hand. For instance, if you have SD and the SD of your opponents is less than 8, but you have DTS and an opponent calls you, you probably should go for the steal, but you have to be pretty sure you actually have the best hand.
If you have QH oracular cards, you definitely should, but this is probably still going to be confirmed on the turn, and you can’t really expect to win any extra money from your opponents if they have SD or better.
If you have a fair hand, you can expect to pay somewhere between 300 and 500 to see the flop, so you will probably get a call. If you have great cards pre-flop you can expect to pay even more.
Tips for moving all-in
It’s important to remember that while you’re the first to move all-in, it’s not that important to actually win the hand. Even if you do end up taking the pot, you have less of a chance to win a larger pot because of the other players involved.
So if you have SD and the pre-flop bettors only call, you probably still suckled out, but at least you will be out of the tournament than if you had stayed in a coin-flip situation.
