I played in few turnaments now and especialy in free rolles I have problem with dealing with players who will all-in every single hand at the begining. Obviously I know there is no way they have anything good but on the other hand I don't want to risk calling it unless I have a pocket pair to make sure I don't loos to anything stupid.

I was trying to just fold all the time untill somebody else looses patience and calls the all-in but it can go like that for a good 15 to 20 minutes and by the time villain is out I am so much behind in stack size that I am struggling in long term game.

Any ideas? Or should I just risk it and call with any high cards hoping to doule the stack with King high or something?

Hi Feniks1984PL!

Welcome to the forum. Here's a link that will help to get you more familiar with many of the options that PSO has to offer.

For me, the way that I deal with the maniacs is that I'm going to play much tighter and then go after them with my premium hands. Patience is a huge key in dealing with them, as I only want to be playing made hands against them, not playing bingo with them..

Good luck at the tables.
