View Full Version : BB Aggression

Hi All,

Lately, it seems like I am becoming more and more aggressive mid to late in SnG's. Here is what I mean. 5 players left. I have garbage (2 random cards, doesn't matter), everyone folds to the button or SB. One or both limp. I raise in this situation 75% or more of the time. I am gonna make any limper pay. Further, if anything at all flops (any A or K) or I hit one of my crap random cards, I will make a pot sized bet and see what happens. It definitely seems to work (I am not tracking the % of time I drag the pot, so don't ask for numbers. I am gonna start now) enough to justify this tactic and the vast majority of players never catch on. What are your collective thoughts about this tactic?

yes, it works more than not but you have to be weary of trying it against a frustrated small stack as they may push in. This works great heads up but only a couple times as the guy catches on. usually.

Hi Pitcher,

I don't raise vs. LP/SB limpers with any two cards from the BB, but if the money is getting shallow, I'll raise limpers with any decent BB hand (pair, suited connector, Ax, or Face-Face). I'm sometimes too aggressive already, and an auto-steal from the BB would give my opponents an obvious trap opportunity against me.
