Crazy Idea no. 1

By: xyzgra @ 20:18 (EST) / 318 / Comment ( 2 )

The chances of you flopping a two pairs or better with any two cards are about 3.42%.  So, every 30 hands or so you play you should see atleast a two pairs.

This is what I am thinking... Play the first 11 limps. It shouldn't cost more than 20% of your stack.  There is a 90% chance that you will land atleast a two pairs in 6 games.


Is this profitable? Well, the fact that you landed a monster and it is invisible in a multiways pot, I think so.  So, you will need to be able to get back 30bb when you win.  When the blinds are small, this is easy to do, hence why it is best played at the beginning of a tourney or deep stack tourney.  

I might be wrong though.  I will experiment with it in the Hubble freeroll satellite.
