The Secret to Winning Poker Tournaments Poker Rules

It's All About Timing


Anyone can win a Poker Rules Rules tournament by getting the right cards at the right time, or by playing against terrible Poker Rules players. And we all know what the ultimate secret to winning Poker Rules is: aggression. But how can you more consistently win roulette tournaments when the cards aren't falling your way, your opponents are decent, and without risking your tournament life with over-the-top aggression? After all, the all-in move will work every time but once: then you're walking past the rail. The secret to winning roulette tournaments is to recognize the three key periods in any tournament: (1) the early game; (2) the mid stages; and (3) the late game. The secret to winning Texas hold em tournaments is to have a distinct strategy for each of the critical crunch times in the roulette tournament: The early game - There are two schools of thought to playing the early game in a roulette tournament. The conservative approach, what I will call the Harrington school, is to buckle down, play tight, and wait for the right spots to come to you.

The goal is to preserve your chip stack for the later stages of the tournament without risking any dangerous, early all-in confrontations. This is not to say that you won't play your premium hands (the top 5% of all cards dealt), but you don't ever want to invest the majority of your stack without a very strong hand. You certainly don't want to speculate and gamble without a strong advantage. The advantage of this strategy is that it reduces your beta: you're unlikely to build a big stack early on but you're also much less likely to stage an early exit. This strategy should be preferred at the lower limits and at tables full of loose, inexperienced players. Let the loose, erratic players bust out without engaging in reckless gambling yourself. On the other hand, you might apply maximum aggression in the early game with the goal of doubling up early. You do this by speculating with a variety of hands, in or out of position (including suited connectors, all pairs, and complete trash if you can push a tight player off their hand after the flop). The key to this approach is to be a balanced loose player.

You can absolutely not afford to be a calling station: loose play is only justified if you're willing to turn up the aggression to compensate for playing these weaker hands. But while loose, passive play is the worst possible roulette strategy, becoming a maniac and going all-in without rhyme or reason is (nearly) as bad. Loose, aggressive players looking to build a big stack early will raise and re-raise frequently, but preferably pre-flop and on the flop when the betting is cheap. When you start seriously gambling, you should either have the best hand, a lot of outs, or a good reason to think your opponent will fold. This loose, aggressive double-or-nothing approach is best-suited for a table full of tight aggressive players schooled in the Harrington strategy of preserving their starting chip stacks for the later stages. You can exploit these players' conservatism to garner an early chip lead.
