Five Strategies to Crush Poker Tournaments
Tournament poker seems simple when everything is clicking and you are on the better end of flips. However, if you have been playing poker for a while, at the end of the day you know the best players with the best strategies are the ones who are consistently winning poker tournaments.
With this in mind, partypoker's Marvin Rettenmaier gives his five most successful tournament strategies. Not all these strategies are just about winning, but some are about just maximizing the position you are in. One of the most important tips is knowing when to stall. Stalling isn't glamorous but sometimes gets the job done.
Stalling can not only be important in certain spots such as the bubble in normal tournaments but even more so in satellites where the object of the game isn't to win but just to not lose. This goes hand in hand with another tip where Rettenmaier suggests to keep an eye on other tables.
Head to the partypoker blog to read about all five of Rettenmaier's helpful poker tournament strategy tips.
