  • opening bets in low stackes!!


    in low stake MTT's i tend to open 2.5 BB when i start a hand, but lately i get called a lot by drawing hands like 67s or suited aces. and when thes dudes are in they tend to stick and draw their flushes or gutshots in the river

    so please help me in anwsering the following question, should i upgrade my opening bets or is it just a nasty extra of playing low stakes???

    I'll vary my opening bets from 2.5 x to 4x +1 per limper based on table tightness/looseness.

    Be careful to watch for changes to the table as people bust and are replaced.

      I try to start a tourney at about 3-4BB, then lower it as the blinds go up. By the time it gets to 200/400 or so, then I'll lower it down to 2.5-3BB as std opening raise.
