So the other day i was bored and decided to run a poker experiment,i went to the play money section found a game {it was a tourney} sat down,took a post it note and covered my icon up so i could not see my hands and started to play. Has anyone else run this same sort of experiment ? at first it was difficult but i stuck to playing position poker and it got easier,i did not cash using this method but i was going to try it again a couple more times to see what the results are. It was also a lot of fun playing blind and trying to out play my opponents sometimes it worked sometimes a disaster hahaha. For anyone else who tries this experiment please let me no what your results are,thanks,and will see you at the tables

Worth a try. The main issue I see is that on play money or micro stakes level, success comes largely from obtaining value with your medium-strong strength hands. If your playing blind, you basically have to make people fold before showdown. Accomplishing that doesn't have to do with position too much, but with being a good storyteller. You have to represent the right hands at the right times.

That being said, opponents at playmoney/micro stakes call way too loosely, and are not very good at hand reading(which means your well told stories will often be ignored).
