  5. Re: Dumb Tournament Plays This is the key point, and why it was a dumb play :ok
  6. Re: Dumb Tournament Plays You are correct that I'm playing it as a semi-bluff I guess. I'm happy when raising for everyone to fold since I'll take the blinds and antes with no flop. I'm also happy for the blinds to call since I'll have position and most likely a better hand. It just got messy when the aggro player with position on me 3-bet. Most times I'd just dump the hand to his 3-bet, but with the Ace blocker and his aggro play I thought (totally wrongly) that I could get him to fold.

  10. Re: Dumb Tournament Plays It was $22 rebuy with not many players left, lots of stealing/re-stealing going on. Ok, reasons for the min raise. It allows you more flexibility when you get 3-bet. If you raise bigger, the 3-bet will be bigger, and you generally have to make a decision for your stack. Min-raise and you get 3-bet smaller, you lose less when you fold, you are able to 4-bet (and in this case) 6-bet fold. And one of the big advantages of min-raising is that the blinds (particularly the big blind) will feel like they are priced in to call with all kinds of crap. This is great for us as they are now playing out of position with hands that they cannot possibly be profitable with.
  11. Re: Daily MTT Winnings August 2011 $1109.93 - I normally hate doing chops especially when I'm easily the best player, but the tournaments had been going 13hrs and we all had just over 100BBs (1st-4th had only 2BBs difference), and I need sleep :lol
  12. Re: Dumb Tournament Plays I did get out with a playable stack but I think the 6-bet bluff should only really be used if you are certain that your opponent is capable of a 5-bet fold, which I wasn't sure of.
  13. Re: Daily MTT Winnings August 2011 $221.01 Frustrating day continuing, just about breaking even with 1 tournament remaining. Lost a huge pot with 15 left AA v KK v TT

  16. Re: Dumb Tournament Plays The min raise is the only worthwhile raise in late stage tournament poker and I will argue with anyone who thinks differently. I probably should have let the hand go after his 5-bet though :lol
