I agree.
After the All-In'ers are all gone then the game gets good.

Going allin is not a good strategy unless you have 5 or 6 games going on 3 sites... Which is why those people do that... Makes it nice when ya catch some nice hole cards against em though  :lol:

There are a lot of reasons people can give for playing this way. I think that the main reason is that they are playing so many tournaments at one time that they would rather risk all-in early in a few because it either cuts the number of tournaments they are playing or makes it worth playing because they don't have to grind so much early on.

don't bite early

Postby Rupothe » Sun Mar 05, 2006 8:35 pm

I have a tendency to avoid all of the all in fests early if I don't NEED to double up to stay in. It seems that if you fold all of your "good" hands that you may normally to call in this situation like A10 suited, or JJ, because of the amount of potential compitition in the hand. in other words you don't wanna be against 4 hands while all in with JJ just to see 'bad' calls with cards like Q3, K7, or 54 take the pot. since more people will call large pre-flop bets early, If you aren't the one who bet it, there's no good reason , in my opinion, to go all in pre-flop for a pot the size of the blinds.

something else to remember

Postby Rupothe » Sun Mar 05, 2006 8:39 pm

on the flip side, Having AA or KK early often get's you paid off because of the amount of "luck players" still in the game calling any bets. Having the most chips isn't what gets you paid in large fields, it is lasting the longest. so that huge pot pre-flop looks great but if you can watch 10 more "big pots" go by then you are in good shape.
remember if your chip stack simply remains above average the entire game, than you cannot lose.

I hate absolute freerolls cause instantly someone has ten thousand and they just start bullying.  I like titans cause they are only 500 people instead of 2000.

I really dont like players who trow all in the begging of a freeroll. They are all maniacs. The funny thiing is that the worst hand wins most of the time.

Is it typical for people to go all in every hand at the beginning of a tournament? I have only played poker for about 3 weeks but it seems as if every tournament I play in has someone (sometimes more than one) at my table who goes all in every hand. Unfortunately, I am the one who calls them on the time when their hand beats mine. I have very bad luck when playing with people like this. Does it happen all the time?
