I think miw played his hand fine, he'll probably know that you are not willing to go broke light because of the other smaller stacks still in the tournament.
Also you notice before the flop that his line "should" be bet bet bet when bluffing so when he has weakish toppair check seems perfectly fine (in a vacuum ofcourse)

If I know he knows...well then, you know.

What is meant by "stack polarization"?



You and I are playing heads up. I win a pot. Not only do I win chips, but you lose chips. There becomes a greater distance between our stacks even though you've only lost half of whats in there.

Coming from a cash player, tourney donk---so be gentle.

In the A6o (BT) vs AQo (SB) hand when you elect to stack off, at that point in the match where there is a close (??) decision like this how much does the fact that you retain the chip lead by folding come into play?

Seems like most capable regulars wouldn't flat, even in position, with these stacks, but if he's opening as much as you think he is then this has to be a profitable shove. nh.

I agree, but Pot Odds 3 definitely plays differently than your average reg!

Retaining the chip lead versus a bunch of winning players doesn't do so much for me, but showing a light call will get me more folds in the future, and also something really important is that you can potentially create cool ICM situations if you win the pot.

Out of curiosity what were those tourneys? It also seems pretty standard that moat final tables can be heavily abused. I am just wondering if at the higher stakes like you play if having more regs at the final tables makes it any harder. I am also wondering how often you play small-micro stakes tourneys and if you will have any videos about those.

The PS one was a 109FO on Sunday (so like 1300 runners or so, medium strength opponents on average) and the FTP one was on a Sunday as well, I think a $163 one with a ton of people? I don't remember exactly.

I may have done a video on my 11r win a while ago but I'm not completely sure. I typically don't play many micro stakes tournaments just because I can open enough tables of mid-high stuff that it just isn't smart for my ROI.

With that said. I assume you moved up from the micro/smalls etc. Can you make a vid that will give us micro players hope of reaching your level (lol).

Seriously though there seems to be spots that I run into that should be easy but..... Mostly they aren't. I wish to give you more specific examples so I will think some on it and post what I come up with.

I actually started with SNGs, made my way to high stakes there, and then moved over to MTTs. This was back when both games were way way way softer than they are now.

I have no clue how micro players play. :-/

But of course, post questions and I'll see what I can do!
