Ep 076 - No Limit Tournament Paradigm

I have been playing tournament poker recreationally for 6 years and feel like I have been learning strategy piecemeal as I have increased how much I play. However, I often feel like I’m lacking an overall approach to the game; like some of the tools I have in different situations are not really congruent with each other; like they don’t necessarily fit into an overall strategy -- and I am wired with a need to have an overall construct or ...

Ep 075 - Staking & Investing plus tipping

What are the various types of staking arrangements that are out there (for both pros & recreational players)? Have you personally had investors or invested in others (what types of arrangements)? What are the pros & cons? Any advice for less experienced recreational players who want to move up in stakes but don’t have the personal bankroll to do it? Ideas on financial support/backing to help make that happen? SIDE QUESTION: What is your approach to tipping after cashing tournaments?

Ep 074 - Luck

Bad beat stories are incredibly common in poker rooms everywhere, and many of us feel that others are luckier than others. How can we handle the luck factor in poker and our emotional response to that? What kind of advice do you give someone who consistently gets it in good in the biggest spots in tournaments, but seems to always lose?

Ep 073 - Post-flop bet sizing

Throughout our hand examples, we have heard a number of different thoughts about bet sizing post-flop, but I would like to dig a little bit into this directly. I know our pros prefer to address specific hand situations, but I would really like our listeners to be able to understand a bit more of the strategic theory behind bet sizing on the flop. Let's assume blinds are 100/200 and we all have at least 10,000 chips (50 big blinds). We ...

Ep 072 - Pre-flop bet sizing at a loose table

In prior episodes we have talked about bet sizing to open pots including the potential of varying the size base on stage of tournament, position, and the adjustments for limpers. This question is specifically about the risk & reward of playing at loose tables early in tournaments. In many of the weekly tournaments I play ($100 or less), a raise to 2.5 to 3.5 big blinds invites 4-5 calls most of the time. In order to successfully steal blinds or ...

Ep 071 - Adjusting for fast, small buy-in tournaments

Many of the books, and even input from our resident pros, is within the context of a larger buy-in tournament which is generally much deeper stacked and longer blind levels. What are some the key things we need to bear in mind when considering input about those tournaments and how it translates to the small, weekly tournaments? These are tournaments where you perhaps start with 10,000 chips and face blind levels of 15-20 minutes. Although average stack should not be ...

Ep 070 - Steves Running Aces Pot O' Gold experience

Steve discuss his strategies going into the Pot O' Gold tournament at Running Aces which features 6 day 1 flights, buy backs, and an accumulator bonus. He discusses how to approach the end of day 1 depending on your overall strategy in the tournament, some general tournament strategies he is fine-tuning, and a specific hand or two from the tournament.

Ep 069 - Big stack end of day 1 & on bubble

In this episode we address a second question from rec player Don Dukate: When I have a decent stack nearing the bubble (bagging for day 2 or the money bubble), I think my play tends to become too loose/aggressive and I lose a lot (if not all) of my chips. Is this just a natural part of things or what things should I consider to see if I have a leak or am playing sub-optimally?
