    Hi BUTTCHIN0707! With 89o from the hijack early in the tourney, I'm going to open fold here. The blinds are still small enough that the players behind me are likely to stay and I don't want to have to play this from out of position. Later in the tourney, I may open it from here, but not early. It's too much of a risk. If I was in the hand (which I would NOT be), I see a flop that totally misses me, out of position in a 3-way pot. I absolutely need to check/fold here. A standard c-bet would need to be 2/3 pot and this early in the tourney, it's not worth it to try to bluff, as all the calling stations are still in. Save the bluffs for a realistic situation against the better players later in the tourney... do not do them early while the stations are still in. Early, the key is to value bet, not to bluff, as bluffing in any microstake buy-in tourney early is just like 2NL... bluffing will accomplish only one thing, to get the player in deep trouble because the opps will NOT fold. The keys here are to avoid marginal hands when out of position and to value bet, not to bluff. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

        Good luck with that concept in a nano-stakes game.
