Rules they play by - Betting

By: m.mahauariki @ 01:43 (EST) / 225 / Comment ( 0 )

OK so I been playing the tables today mostly sit and go's and Free Roll torney's lost 6 in a row first off? Ok ????

Followed the advice given, minmal bets 3x - 5x  blinds on high Pockets and splits, got wiped out by  stupid cards? 5 2- 7-2 the odd A-2-3 which all linked up. I couldn't beleive it. (wasn't liking the river).

Not saying it was bad advice but man I didn't have much luck this morning. oh wel move on....

I think the best hit today was top 400 in a 8000+ Freeroll - I like them free rolls for some reason, proberbly because there are so many loose players to take advangtae of.

Oh and hit last table on 45 man, 10k play money sit and go - ranked 5th = 20 or 30k chips. -

Analyzing my play I'm still making novice mistakes but hey I can see them more clearly now.

Any way back to the subject - I started to look around at the bigger tables observing how other player play with bigger stacks.....

I was very surprised to see how loose they play like OMG 1mill chips on A 5-4 unsuited after flop as and example????

Sort of makes ya think a little about betting style.....

Another example is the last open skill tourney I played like half an hour ago, this player was going all in on everything, most of his/her cards were rubbish but they kept linking up, again couldn't beleive it

I got em once with a 7-3 I think and the we went all in again him 7-5 suited me A-10 unsuited, guess what he linked up again??? (MMMMMMMMMM)

Now I left thinking how do you factor luck into a betting style?

Obviously there is no skill in just going all in, sooner or later this player will get caught out but with what I've seen today and the hands I lost to, it's got me thinking.....

I don;t know maybe I was just having a cold day???

Anyways till next time,

Muzz out...
