So you're saying i should only play with these hands?



Because you are new and your opponents will generally be more skilled, you want the pots as big as possible preflop. You want to gamble more. Don't be afraid to just shove. If you accumulate chips, steal the blinds. Bet 3-4 times the big blind preflop and don't let up til the thing is over.

So if i get one of those hands i should really raise big?

Heads up the more aggressive player is usually the winner. Bully away. Yeah thats what i hear...
Thanks man, if you should think if any more little tips you could give me before sunday it would be greatly appreciated!!

so i went to my first tournament today, and i actually did better than i thought in advance. but the last hand this guy went all in on me, i had ACE-KING so i went along (everyone would've right?) we turn our cards, he has KING-QUEEN so im thinking i got him... the turn is a queen and im out of there.....

i played for almost 3 hours, so thats not too bad. cant wait till the next one.

thanks again to beautifulrock's tips, they really helped. anytime if you think of tips please post them, they're greatly apreciated.

^^that is good for a rough estimate. The outs on the river are actually 2.25% and 4.4 on the turn, but that works ok.

so B-rock i have a question. would you give me the same advice for a cash game as for a tournament?
would you advice me to play as tight?
and keep in mind i'm not going to buy myself back in if im out of chips.

The biggest difference between a cash came and a tournament is the fear factor. In a tournament you can use big moves to force out opponents because the wrong call will break them. In a cash game where rebuy is optional, the likelihood that your bluffs will be picked off is higher. I hardly ever bluff in a cash game, I don't semibluff as much and I'm always trying to be a step behind my opponents to confuse them. My starting hands I play increase dramatically. Concentrate on trapping an opponent for all their money. String them along til it's time to drop the hammer, but try not to trap yourself. Cash games are about winning and losing hands. Don't fall in love with your hand, the board can dramatically change the strength of it. Remember AA doesn't always beat 72. If you plan on buying in only once, play extremely tight until you can build your stack a little. Forget about stealing. Short stacks don't have that luxury. Take it one hand at a time and keep your conversation low. Try to be statuesque. Set a goal, and leave when you reach it. Don't get dragged into staying one second longer than you want to.
