  • 9 man table sitting out strategy

    Please advise the best play in this situation:
    You are one of two players with short stacks,2 players on your table have stacks 15 times the size of yours,and one of them is always going all in,on every hand,all the other players are sitting out.
    This has happened several times in the open league.
    What should be my strategy?

    Well I'm not raelly playing those tournaments anymore. I assume its the start of the tournament and you have around your starting stack.

    Your goal is to reach the 30% to get profitable points. So you wait until you get a decent hand ahead of their ranges. It should be easely possible to get your money in 60% ahead even 70-80% Wait for those spots. Wait for a decent hand.
    Also you can wait decently in start as many will bust. meaning don't call too ligth cause if you do bust in the start you'll lose alot of points.

    Hope this some what helps

      If there is a sitter, treat them as a free steal if you can get to it.. otherwise let the others steal

      Dont try and steal just because it is free

      What would you do if you played with maniac opponents in a normal game? Wait for top 5 hands and crush them (JJ-AA, AK).. best way to handle them
