How To Win A No Limit Poker Tournament

Latest Casino News 19 Jun , 2019 0

When you ask a Poker Pro what you should do in a specific hand the answer is: "It depends."

I'm sick of hearing every poker question answered with "it depends." "It depends" is just a cop-out by someone who does not want to be second-guessed. I want a real answer, and I want it now!

Winning poker does not "depend." Winning poker requires that you take action. Be aggressive. Be scared at the table.

Here's your mantra for No-Limit Hold'em Poker Tournaments:

Risk is Good.

Now, repeat after me: "Risk is Good."

I can not hear you-shout it out- "Risk is Good!"

The biggest mistake a tournament poker player makes is to think he can simply outplay his opponent and expect to win. It does not work that way. This is not a cash game where time does not matter.

This is a tournament where time works against you, as it continues to eat away at your chips with bigger and bigger blinds and antes.

And there's also this thing called luck. Even if you have pocket Aces against pocket Deuces, you are going to lose one out of five times. And what if that one time is when your opponent has you covered with more chips? You are out.

The fact is that you can outplay your opponent and still lose.

A no-limit hold 'em poker tournament requires that you take action, take risks, and not sit back and wait for premium hands. You need to gamble. You need to accumulate chips.

You need to bury the risk inherent in the game. You need to get so many chips, that you can handle a bad beat and still win.

Risk is good, because playing safe in tournament poker is a sure way to lose.
