      Hey so I'm going to a tournament tomorrow. It has a prize pool of around $5000, and will be full of the fishiest players you could possibly imagine.

      I want to know if people have any tips for playing in tournaments where:

      Players are unusually loose (limps all round pf)

      and

      You rarely have fold equity, so ICM doesn't work.

      Any tips would be much appreciated :]

      Just dont assume every single player is an idiot - with a prize pool of $5000 you should expect some very, very good players to turn up. Try to identify who these good players are.

      Limp a lot of pocket pairs and suited connectors early if the pots are not being raised preflop, when you hit something squeeze every last chip out of it.

      If in doubt or if you dont hit the flop perfect, fold straight away. When you reach the middle stages your advantage is that you have been more protective of your chips than your opponents.

      Ignore the theatrics of your opponents - some fish can be very good actors when bluffing or pretending to bluff or pretending to pretend. Just ignore them and focus on your game.
