Texas Holdem: Poker Tournament Strategy : Tips for Playing Ace, King Poker Strategy in Texas Holdem


We’ve been looking at how tight is right early
in a tournament. But we don’t want to be too
tight. There are times even early in a tournament
where you’ve got to be willing to go broke.
Because you’re only gonna end up in the money
eight to ten percent of the time. And really
if we’re talking about a major tournament,
it’s not about cashing. It’s about making
the final table, it’s about making the top
three, it’s about becoming a celebrity, a
poker celebrity. I think that’s what most
people are playing tournament poker for. It’s
certainly what I’m playing for. So let’s look
at this scenario, the action has folded around
to the dealer and he looks down and he sees
ace ten. Well, you know what, this guy happens
to be kind of looks and he raises, he raises
it to three times the big blind. Small blind
looks down, pair of jacks, he says you know
what, I know the dealer is loose and once
more jacks are a very good hand. I’m going
all in.
