  • Experiment: Raising (Almost) Every Hand

    I just played a sit & go and, halfway through, I decided to try an experiment. Every hand, I intended to open any unopened pot. If I had a half-decent holding, I would 3bet any opened pot. The only thing I wouldn't do was make a bad call if I got raised. It was pretty funny to see how often people folded to me. I got away with it for about 30 hands. People were folding everything, and my projected strength seemed to allow me to get away with a handful of complete post-flop bluffs, too. I got shut down when someone called me with AK on a four-flush board, with only top pair. It was pretty interesting how long I got away with opening every single pot, though. My fold equity was almost exactly equating my losses when I had to fold, up until I lost my whole stack. That's all.

    ya ive wondered if I should try this. I played a heads up tourney against a guy who would raise and reraise me every hand. its tough because if you miss the flop and even though I know he doesnt have anything I gotta toss my hand.

    If i remember correctly he ended up winning the heads up so maybe the strategy worked. he would build a big lead but then id get one good hand and get it back. but eventually blinds got too big and i think he lucked out

    but interesting strategy, I wonder how well it works for different table sizes (heads up compared to 6 max, 9 and 10 full tables)

      This is a common strategy that a lot of loose players use. They raise all the time and they count on you missing the flop so you can't call their c-bet.
