I try not to play out of position unless I have strong holdings and I only play even in position with at least pocket pair,high cards high connecting/ connecting same suits and just chuck everything else basically sometimes raise with garbage and they folkd as I have put in such a bold raise too ;) does this sound good to you blue ;)

It sounds very good to me.  How low on those pocket pairs will you call a raise with?

Very lowest pair I'd raise with is 3s and I'd need to have quite alot of chips usually only 4s as you saw I can't stand being raised with deuces because if you don't make at least a set on the flop and there are overcards you have pretty much no option but to fold em'

I limp in with 6s and below.  7s-10s I'll call a min or near min raise (depending on stash and being near the bubble of course) and raise everything else.  Sometimes I'll call more if my gut tells me to or the raiser is a fish or calling station.

ok so this doesn't sound like a very good fin position but I just came 174th in a poker stars tourney that was out of 3857 entrants though! and I just didnt pick up the good hands also I went out with AJ my opponent had AA! rough way to leave a tournament! if a couple of jacks had shown up I'd have won or could make a straight do you think you'd go all in with that hand? hard hand to fold preflop!

Very unlucky to meet your end against AA but that's still a good position to finish in out of such a large field.  Well done and keep it up.  You're doing really well.

Ok so even AA pocket pair isn't always safe a guy shoved me all in with JJ my other opponent had 99 the lucky sod hit another jack on the flop am I right in thinking him shoving all in with JJ wasn't a good move at all its totally counting his chickens in my opinion as there are 12 over cards in the deck that would beat him so its a bad play shoving all in with that he just got very lucky that one of his 2 outs appeared! then he had the audacity to say bye like I had made a bad play! any idiot would go all in with aces it is the best pocket pair grr hope he went out soon after I'm sure he probably did as that was a really cocky shove! Even when I have queens I won't pay all in I would probably fold if its early on as I have had queens eaten up many times!

I'm guessing the all in bet was because he was trying to take down the pot without having to play the jacks to showdown.  I play them different each hand depending on the players at the table.  If there is a calling station, I will raise a little and hope to hit those trips on the flop and take as much dough from his stack as possible.  If the players are tight, I'll raise big to take the pot without having to play the hand.  I like to vary my play too - stops opponents getting a good "read" on me.

It was a silly play though he was just extremely fortunate because if he drew blank that would be my pot. Yeah I don't stick to same pattern either if they see me when when I originally raised it high take down a  pot they fold all round and sometimes I just collect the blinds but if they call back and I have junk I fold immediately. Oh just came 67th at full tilt poker bankroll mob exclusive tournament only won 5cents but this was out of over 1000 players! also went out from a kicker card I shoved all in when I hit a pair of jacks from flop my opponent won with kj! So I was unlucky I did read correct that most of them had squat just unfortunate she had that kicker card I had a 10 kicker

just finished 167th at full tilt I noticed a player constantly shoving all in so I thought I'd teach him he only had 5s I had A6 spades it flopped me a pair of 6s 1 on flop one in my hand then the other 2 cards on turn and river make a straight! what a lucky so and so! I would say that was another daft play just he got very lucky! These people annoy me they really need to visit poker school lol! the odds of picking up the other 4  cards needed for the 8 high straight are pretty long!

These fish will call with anything - anything connected, anything suited, anything with an ace and so on.  I've even seen players go all in with 23 off and win. Very annoying it is.

Thankfully there isn't too many at fulltilt. Elios,Atos,Coral and poker770 is crawling with them though! total fishtank that's what these poker sites are like even Unibet people shove all in too often when they have squat.

PKR is pretty much the same too. 

 

The best games you can get where players usually play properly are the "double or nothing" games.

Just thought I would share a small victory... came in 16th in a $50 freeroll today at Bet Online Poker and won $1. Over 2,000 starting players and blinds at $10000/$20000 when my Q's were taken out by a straight on the river.

The river can be very fickle Katt but 16th place is still good and you can't fold queens you'd never live it down if you hit 3,4 or a boat and had folded. I once folded an ace and the other 3 appeared on turn and river I was sick! it was like A3 unsuited and I was early position. just plain bad luck!

Thank you all for your comments. I did feel pretty good still being in there to 16th place. What I want to know is with me pushing over $100,000 with my queens, what was that guy still doing in the hand with part of a straight until the river.... just kidding, he was pot committed when he called my push.... LOL

Shame he made it to the river - some players chase to the bitter end for straights and flushes.  I'm probably guilty of it now and then LOL
