Poker Betting Strategy

If you bet too little , you are giving players with drawing hands or hands like middle pair the opportunity to see a cheap turn card, which makes it mathematically correct for them to call to try and beat your hand as they will have good pot odds - but don't worry about this if you are not familiar with pot odds playing flush and straight draws yet, just take it as betting too little is bad. I didn't know you got so many I was pissed oh well. Was dealt a SBR cooler last night at the casino.

Regular Tournaments 42 March 27th, 1: February 8th, , 9: February 10th, , 4: In general, don't play a tournament with an add-on unless you're prepared to take it.

In order not to, the circumstances should be pretty unusual, like taking it would still leave you severely short-stacked. February 10th, , I don't play tournaments with add-ons.

But if you are playing one, it doesn't make sense not to add-on, beacuse the chances are that everyone else is going to and then you are at a disadvantage. It's the same with re-buy tournaments, expect to re-buy at least once because people are willing to go all in and try and double up, knowing they can re-buy if it fails and try again. I generally just stick with the no rebuy, no add-on tournaments and grind it out.

February 12th, , 1: At the time of add-on and youre the chip leader, if the chips to be added is so small compared to your stack and the add-on amount is not cheap, why add-on?

At the time of add-on and youre the chip leader, if the chips to be added is so huge compared to your stack and the add-on amount is either cheap or not cheap, always add-on. At the time of add-on and youre the lowest stack, if the chips to be added is so small compared to your stack and the add-on amount is not cheap, why add-on?

Sometimes the add-on is expensive and small relative to your stack, so it is minus EV to take it. Have to think about each tournament differently to see whether taking the add-on makes sense Sklansky wrote some on whether to take the add-on in "Tournament Poker for Advanced Players". Thats why I said "it depends", above.

Im just giving sample scenarios whether to take add on or not. But others will answer, always take the add-on no matter what. If I have near average stack size or better, I tend to skip the add-on. I would add-on if I'm below the average stack, otherwise it just dont seem that important to me. Sometimes I add-on just to have some equity for coinflips, if I win - I move forward, if not - Ive wasted a few dollars.

Dont know when is the right time to do this, but I'd suggest if your bankroll can take a hit from re-buys, better play Freezeouts. Before I play such tournament I would make a few calculations - will I be coinflipping a lot early, how much money exactly can I put aside for that tournament.
