First time playing live
Posted 11 August 2010 - 03:28 PM
$10 buy in, 1,000 in chips. 70 players. top 7 get cash. so it'd be a pretty decent take considering.
So I was just wondering if you guys had any tips for someone who's gonna play live for their first time? I am pretty nervous about it. Online I do well, I watch a lot of poker and do my fair share of reading as well.

So I'd suggest aggressive play for smaller tourneys to get a good stack of chips early.

And yeah indeed, usually online aswell in sit&go's, it'll very often come down to luckyest person winning most coinflips. Being dealt a pocket pair will force you to go all-in to steal the blinds, and get dealt AK will force you to call it, going in for a coin-flip, and vice versa. Having those extra chips will come in handy indeed for if you're less lucky, but.. it is risky, because if you try push people around, at one point you will run into a monster.

Don't talk AT ALL during a hand that you are involved in. Just focus and ignore everybody. It isn't considered rude to ignore someone when you are making decisions, especially if you are about to make a raise or call a raise.
People will try to fish for information from you, just ignore them and don't answer.
Don't watch the flop when it comes, watch your opponents, you should for people glancing at their chips right after the flop. This is often something they will do when they want to bet after seeing a great flop.
Lastly, if you have less than 10 big blinds left, just go all preflop in on any Ace or any pocket pair.
