Part VIII: Cash-Game Approaches

My main focus as of  late has been in tournament poker.

Tournament poker is a completely different animal then its counterpart, cash games.

Being a successful tournament poker player requires the desire and focus in winning THE ENTIRE TOURNAMENT. The biggest cash prize goes to the winner of the tournament barring a final table chop deal.

To maximize your return in your time investment, you have to play for first place.

Here is an example from a $20 rebuy tournament that I recently played.

I came in third in the tournament.

I won $1590.

First place won $4000.

He beat me on a hand all in pre-flop to knock me out with 88 vs my 99.

Yeah, he hit the 8 on the river!

I laugh at things like this, and if you can’t imagine losing $2,400 on a single river card, don’t pursue poker seriously.

You can read about my tournament approach further, in this article.

I also have a strategy guide for beating final tables which can be found here.

Part X: Analyzing Your Poker Game with Record Keeping and Statistics to be posted tomorrow! 🙂

    hey, id like if you gave more details. im really enjoying reading these, but they lack a little substance. i didn’t get to really find out anything about your “approach” to tournaments other than you try coming in first compared to the other positions (i understand why it makes way more sense to go for 1st everytime than just consistently placing in the top 10).
