  • Most comfortable first hand UTG to start MTT.

    Just for laughs, I've noticed that being dealt 10 5 off, as my first hand in a MTT mostly UTG or UTG+1 has a nice calming effect for me.

    I'm interested if any of you have a similar feeling at the start of a MTT and what hands "conjur" up this feeling.


    NLHE....for clarity.

      I normal settle after I win my first pot rather than being dealt a hand.

        Anything but JJ or TT. I always have trouble with those in early position. I'll play them, but I'm not exactly loving life.

          72 off is always nice as a first hand UTG, since I don't really have to think on what to do with it...
          But snap shove it obviously.

            Folding is never calming for me, so I will have a top 2% hand get one caller and take it down with a cbet on a dry flop. That is the closest to calm I will be or would want to be.
