Yeah I think you are right I might just have to make the adjustment and tighten my ranges and like you said go as big as I need to get it to heads up and try find that threshold for the game I am playing.

Looking forward to this series, I play online all week but on Fridays I do go play live 1/2 and it is a totally different game. Don't understand why there is so much hate in the comments if the content doesn't apply to you go watch another video. Most of the content I watch is geared towards online play where I mostly play $11MTTs or 25NL but very little content available for live play where i am literally going to play with 8 Buy-ins essentially and have very little content available to look at.

I am stuck basically to one card room where I play against the same opponents pretty much every week, some competent and some absolutely terrible. Issue I have most of the time is the amount of cold calling that goes on, even trying to isolate is pretty challenging and is rare a pot goes heads up. Any suggestions as to where i can try to improve or adjust to increase my win rate?

Brilliant Intro to ICM, very eye opening to see the amount of equity you could potentially have as a short stack.

Owen Sheils videos will apply to what you are looking for. He has a video reviewing a $5.50 on 888 Poker worth a watch and will more likely be more applicable than watching guys review Hight rollers.

Yeah, Great to see the lower scale covered. Wouldn't mind seeing a party poker $5.50 covered as to see your thought process without the hud. Seeing a lot of multiple limp calls lately more so than before. Maybe its the influx of live players trying their hand at online due to corona, Im not sure.

Glad I came across this Video, Had literally jumped from playing 5.50s to 11s more regularly.

Post | PocketTwo393 posted in Other: Live Tournament Advice

*So mostly play online tournaments but enjoy playing live local weekly tournament. The game itself has a horrible structure and usually only has 2 tables.
The first 6/7 levels play ridiculously loose with lots of limping and over calling, its rare that a hand goes heads up. By the time of final table most players have <20 bigs and only at this stage does the game tighten up. The blinds literally double every level.

So I am looking for some Advice/Best approach how to combat a game like this, eg. early play, dealing with over calling and the playing to cash when the stacks are so shallow.*

To be fair after purchasing the course the content is extremely good :)

I never said anything about the quality of the content. If you are someone who plays micro limits paying for an essential subscription and then also another $50. That adds up to quiet a chink of a micro stake bank roll.

Pretty disapointd that this isnt avaliable as part of the essential membership.

Feb. 15, 2019 | 2:30 a.m.

I haven't found much myself to be honest, play NL 25 and 50 but video seem to be for higher stakes.

Feb. 3, 2019 | 3:48 p.m.

Could you recommend me a series or videos that would get me up to scratch on these theory concepts?

Sept. 18, 2018 | 10:05 a.m.

I chose to go for 3X in this spot as they guy in the BB defends ridiculously wide if it doesn't cost him much, My thinking was that at this stage in the tournament that he would be playing somewhat tighter as he never gets this far and thus opted for a slightly bigger sizing to try get a fold from him but obviously not folding 9s there. But yeah I can see why I should be using smaller sizing at this stage in general considering my stack size and blinds.
Appreciate the advice guys :)

I cashed in 5th with no rebuy, as got doubled up early on.

Final hand was a raise to 3X from me on the button (18BB) with KQs, called by Chip leader in SB (100+BB) and also called by BB (20ish)

Flop Of K39 , check check and I shove for my remaining 15BB to get value from worse Kx and also any flush draw as 2 hearts on board. SB fold and BB calls with 99 :(

Any critique or advise on how I played that final hand would be welcome???

Aug. 20, 2018 | 11:24 a.m.

Have Inquired and supposedly I cannot take my rebut at the start, need to be at a certain chip[ count before you can rebuy. I did like the idea tho as I would definitely consider myself to have an edge in this particular game.

Cheers James, seems to have worked :)

Aug. 18, 2018 | 3:10 p.m.

Good Article, just gave it a read there.

Aug. 18, 2018 | 3:09 p.m.

Makes sense, didn't actually think of taking my first rebuy at the start.

Aug. 17, 2018 | 7:21 p.m.

First here so be gentle, been playing poker for almost a year now.I have a small buy in live tournament this weekend with a decent guarantee in my usual card room, which i can usually either win or make a cash in.Will be playing against usual people I play with and i'm sure a few new faces with guarantee also. My question is what would the best strategy be to use in regards the tournaments starting stack and structure.
We usually play a freeze out but this will be an unlimited rebuy tournament.
Starting Stack is 10k with Blinds starting 100/200 and 30 Minute levels
Any advise with regards how I should approach and adjust to the different format?
