First let me introduce myself.

 

 

My name is Artem, I am 24. I am working on my own online projects. Kinda trying to get my ideas into life.

I play micro buy-in MTTs about once in 2 DAYS.

 

So every 2 DAYS I am going to share with you the most Important things you'll need to beat Micro MTTS, as long as I grind my way to $10k.

 

TIP #1 - Mindset

(Adapting to the game)

 

So, what is your goal?  

What is your goal preflop? 

What is your goal on the flop? 

Your goal is the 1st place. So don't do things that won't get you there.

Look at the completed tourney you want to play. Look at how long did it go.

This info will give you an idea of how long you'll need to last to get to the 1st place.

Don't be desperate for chips !!! Unless you have 5-10 bigs.

If you can maintain 10 bigs till the final table, so do it! (Earn enough to survive)

Always think longterm.

Play ABC game + c- bet (in good spots).

Generally speaking, c-bet when your hand can improve significally (flush,street etc.) in later streets. Remembere to be in position 85% of the time.

If you have small - mid stack, then bluffing those with big stacks at micros is kinda useless.

 

REMEMBER WHEN PEOPLE at MICROS MAKE MOVES AT YOU

THEY THINK ABOUT THEMSELVES -

 

NOT ABOUT YOU

 

Hope this will help to improve your game and winnings.

Bonus:  

1. Relax your brain by listening to the classics throghout the tourney
