  • Playing during Milestone time.

    So any advice for play during the Milestone hands.

    I'm Guessing that the milestone hands will draw in more players who don't really study the game.

    Okay so i expect a bunch of ohh shiny cards passive play as well as several shove monkey laggers.

    Should i tighten my range or open my range as i have read both.

    thoughts,

    Hey Grade b!

    If you end up in one... do NOT fold. Also, when one is coming up, do NOT sitout, as you don't want to miss it.

      Why oh Why?

      Why change your style of play?
      Just play your ABC poker and that's it

        I think there will be a lot of.people playing more tables than they are capable of, and therefor play tighter than usual. I'd loosen up if I noticed these guys were to act behind me.

            I agree, but you need to know who they are, you need notes on them
            Lots of people will only play one table, just in case that's the winning table.
            I think that you'll see that more on 2-5 and maybe 10NL

            But overall, I don't think you should change your style of play.

              Last time on 2nl and 5nl i saw when people where in the milestone hand, i SWEAR like 3 people on each of my tables just SHOVED preflop with junk like 73o Q5o and then you obviously have a lucky guy who had like QQ

                check out the PROMO info as well.
                If I remember correctly it was $20 paid per earned fpp in the previous 50 hands at that table.Just being DEALT into a hand gets $20 as well I believe.

                So at least in the micro levels it makes sense to just SHIP IT.



                GOOD LUCK to all

                  Might fire up a few tables leading up to the milestone hands if I get the chance and hopefully bink the right one.

                  Good luck to everyone trying the same.

                    as always remember poker rule #1....hiccup

                    but like sand said......don't change your play

                    I have played it every time.....2 to 5 tables...depending on how I felted at the time,

                    never won it...I think it's luck of the draw really.

                    so...play like you do...and hope for the best

                    good luck all

                    cheers

                      The odds of winning this are like the odds of winning the lottery. I'm playing more cash games than usual but I don't expect to win.

                        It was so sick!! A few months ago I opened up 24 tables and waited for my BB, unaware that a milestone hand was on the brink of being dealt, and of course...you know it.. a milestone hand was dealt at one of my tables before I could get in on the action..

                        Everyone, do what John said!

                            Nice one Magic tom,

                            How did you miss it, man 20 tables seems hectic. Is this your normal amount or are you playing extra for the promo?

                            I just watched one and there is an alarm bussing and the play stopped to allow rail birds to come and watch

                            it was on a 1 on 1 25c 50 cent table both players had roughly $50 first to act shoved all in pre other guy folded. I like how on the table it shows how much you could win so i guess the second guy didn't feel the extra juice was worth the flip.

                              Been playing 4 tables of 6-max 2NL as usual and guess what?

                              So everyone pushed all in and a guy with Broadway took the pot and $149, and we received $50, not so bad as well ))
