View Full Version : Defeating 2+2ers on SnG games

07-21-2005, 06:06 PM
Any suggestions on defeating players who are using the generaly accepted method of getting ITM? When you notice most of the table is playing according to the most common strategies discussed here, probably even posters or lurkers, are there tactics to benefit because of this? Is blind stealing early worth it? cold bluffs EP middle stages? etc. etc.

I assume you bumped into someone on a table that was executing the basic strategy of:
- Playing ultra-tight early.
- Playing premium hands aggressively.
- Blind stealing beginning at Level 4
- Extreme stealing on the bubble to ITM.

Is there a specific situation that you are reffering to? Do you have a hand history? Did a good player pre-empt your bubble play action?

Call more than usual in the late game.

Whenever I have someone on my left that I know follows the same strategy I will come after their blinds more at earlier levels, especially when they dont know me. Also you have pretty easy decisions on defending your blinds, b/c you know what hands you would push in a given situation

If there's a 2+2er in the game that I know, it's probably because they've commented on hands I've posted. Based on how they've responded to my posts, I'll modify my game slightly.

As an example, FieryJustice thinks I'm an idiot (as his only two responses to my posted hands have been, "are you trying to lose??") so I don't try anything fancy when I play him... or do I??? /images/graemlins/grin.gif
