Poker Tournament Strategies – 3 Tips To Targeting Players

Poker Tournament Strategies - Big And Short StacksAre you angry you aren’t winning tournaments? Use these poker tournament strategies tips to learn how to win now.

Even if you’ve just started playing poker tournaments or have been playing for a while, you, like me, will find these tips to be very useful for you. That’s because they peel back the curtains on the easiest way to get more chips.

The fact of the matter is, there is some very incorrect misinformation floating around. Some of you may have heard it already and I just want to clear the air.

Common poker tournament strategy advice goes along the lines of this “Target the smaller stacks. It’s easier to win. If you all-in and lose you aren’t out. They have much worse odds than you. Target the smaller stacks. Target the short stacks.”

I’m not denying that this advice is good in some ways. I in fact teach and advocate being wary of going all in against a bigger stack than you and it’s better to go all in against a smaller stack than you. But I want to clear the air a bit more than this.

My Poker Tournament Strategies Tips For Targeting Players #1

First things first: do not target the small or short stacks. Target the average stacks. This is the most important thing you can take away from this article.

This is because an average stack player can afford to fold. If he doesn’t have a good chance of winning he can fold and still have a chance of winning the tournament.

Avoid playing extremely short stacks. These guys are so desperate they will play just about anyone with just about anything. You never ever know what a short stack has got if he has gone all in pre-flop.

My Poker Tournament Strategies Tips For Targeting Players #3

Stay out of the way of the big stacks as much as you can. These big guys will crush you if you even think about making the wrong move. Remember that the aim of the game is to stay in the tournament and not walk home a loser.

Now, I’m sure you a realizing how helpful these tips for targeting players are for you, and how you can use them to your advantage the next time you play a tournament.

And it doesn’t matter what type of tournament you are playing; whether it’s online or offline, a Sit N Go or not, or however big or small the buy is. No matter what you need to remember the fundamentals of targeting other players.

If you aren’t yet experiencing the success you would like playing poker tournaments. If you aren’t consistently winning and making good money winning tournament prizes this means you haven’t educated yourself enough on how to win. The winners are always those that are more educated. That’s why I urge you always take up any opportunity to learn more about Texas Hold Em poker, like tips and tricks, even if you have to buy it and especially if it’s free.
