“Personally, I’ve always preferred tournaments. I’ve rarely felt comfortable playing cash games, and my advantage has always seemed to be better in the increasingly confined space defined by player eliminations and rising blinds. But after walking through some of these numbers …. I’m rethinking my personal poker strategy. Is it time for you to do the same?”
Every time you play a hand differently from the way you would have played it if you could see all your opponents’ cards, they gain; and every time you play your hand the same way you would have played it if you could see all their cards, they lose. Conversely, every time opponents play their hands differently from the way they would have if they could see all your cards, you gain; and every time they play their hands the same way they would have played if they could see all your cards, you lose.
“Keep in mind that a good poker player will, more times than not, utterly destroy low limit games… If you can’t win consistently at these games, don’t be so quick to blame the bad beats – you probably have some more work to do before you move up” – Phil Gordon in Poker: The Real Deal
