  • How many hands do you play in the open league games?

    Hi All

    I have started to play in the league games and was interested on how many and what hands you play?

    It depends on the table. Early in the tourney, I'm only playing premium, made hands (QQ+). As the tourney progresses, I will play a few more hands. The key in these is to NOT get any early busts, so I do not ever want to take a chance with anything marginal until I'm ITM. Lasting longer to get more points for the end of the month leaderboard is the goal in there and I need to do whatever I can to last longer. Good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

      Hi John

      I have played 13 now and have finished on average in the top 24% (this is due to very early exits the first couple of games). When you say INM do you mean in a field of 10,000 the top 1,440? If so I find by the time I get there (normally after the break) I only have bout 5BB in my stack, finding it very hard to play anything less than QQ. I have just finished a game (finished 865) I only sore 4 flops and all were because I checked the BB, am I playing too tight?

      Thanks for your input and help

        Sounds to me like you're on the right path. I had one game where I was in it for 2 hours (when the US members could play)... I saw 2 flops. One where I doubled up, the other when I was blinded in.

        Once you get ITM (1440), then you want to try to start to accumulate chips to get to a final table.

        Good luck!
