Serious Short Stack Strategy:

Postby Enuenated » Sun Apr 16, 2006 7:52 pm

- You have 2 plays. Fold or go all-in.
- Let’s start with being on the button or up to 2 places off the button. From late position you can play based on the action in front of you. If there are 2 or less players in the pot in front of you and neither player went all-in then you can go all-in with any pair or any Ax. You may also want to consider any single face card. As more players are in the pot in front of you the more selective you want to be. If there are 3 or more players in then limit your pairs to 88 and up, Ax, Axs and Kxs.
- From mid and early position consider going all-in with any pair or any single face card, suited or not. The requirement is no one in front of you has gone all-in. Let them bust out and you move up in the money.
- As an alternate strategy, if there is a lot of action on each hand, just fold and let them bash each other about. If you get AA or KK consider a play but fold everything else.

BigPimp420 and all,

say this is right on.

just might add that where your current

position is in relation to payout and

other players.

think playing the shortstack is maybe the

most imp. factor in winning tourneys....taking first.

best,

Logical sound, good advice !! You have to take in consideration the chip stacks of the people calling in front of you as well. If a player has 10x your chip stack(very large stack), you can expect a call usually. But if there of similar stacks on the bubble, chances are they won,t call unless they have the goods.
