  • Getting to final table and then losing the plot...

    Hi,

    I have run deep in a couple of MTT's recently with 2000+ entrants and managed to get to the final table, only micro tourney's such as $1.10 or similar.

    Once I get to the final table, and more specifically when less players are on the table I seem to forget how to play... I know there is a different way to play heads up (and I am useless at HU) and would like to know of anything I can watch/read on that subject, but I think I also need similar for 4-5 players on a table...

    Anyone else have this problem also?

    Cheers

    Hi takers12! You're in luck, as there is a wealth of information on those subjects here at PSO. For 6 player tables, please check out the videos from Felix (xflixx). His specialty is 6 player ring games, but many of his lessons will translate to short handed play in tourneys. For HU play, please take a look at Andre (HoRRoR77) and his video section. He's a HU specialist and will help with that situation. For final table play, take a look at the pro's reviews and also the tourney reviews from Dave (TheLangolier), Andy (ahar010) and Chris (ChewMe1). I know it will take a very long time to go thru all of the videos, but the info that you're looking for is definitely in there with multiple examples of each. Hope this helps.umbup: John (JWK24)

        Final table theory

        Hi Takers12. There is so much information here that you might want to start with something which will help you organize it a bit, TheLangolier has two videos on final table theory, sessions 37 and 38 here. I find that some of the member review sessions by our live trainers are among the most valuable. They can take more time to discuss the hands than they have when they do a live shadow session. Find somev of these at the stakes you are playing and I think you will find them quite useful.

        Hope this helps

          Thanks Doug - how do I find the member review sessions? Is that the Live Training section, and then wait for the right stakes there?

          Can you replay the live sessions from an archive - if I am not available for the live session?

          Cheers

            Hi takers12! Most of the video section are the recordings of a live training session. It normally takes a couple months to get them into the video library, but they will get there if there is one that you want to see, but miss. The member review sessions will be from the video tab above, then the pro or trainer and then you'll see some that say 'member review'. Hope this helps.umbup: John (JWK24)
