MTT Strategy Conclusion
Watching the final tables of the World Poker Tour and the WSOP, we are sometimes amazed at the seemingly wild and loose play. Stone cold bluffs with rag hands, all in with Q 10 offsuit, etc. We are then lulled into thinking that this style of play is characteristic of these players, and that playing with wild abandon has gotten them to this point. Wrong. In fact, this is one reason why online poker is so lucrative right now. Thousands of players flock to the online casinos, after watching final table play of the WSOP on ESPN, and think thats the way to play poker. They and their chips are soon parted!
Before dropping $10,000 on a buy-in to the World Series of Poker main event, you should seriously consider gaining valuable experience online. Besides the host of satellite tournaments allowing you to win your way to the World Series of Poker, a good player can make a living from all of the low buy-in guaranteed tournaments online. Absolute Poker, for example has a weekly $100,000 tournament. Players can win their way in through satellites for as little as $5 or buy in directly for $150. Many of the pros are making their living online through lucrative multi-table tournaments!
Tight early, aggressive play midway, and extremely aggressive and taking bigger risks at the final table is a proven winner in multi-table tournaments.
