The Early Phase in a MTT
IntroductionIn this article
- The conservative approach
- Play tight in the early phase
There are several profitable ways to play a MTT. This article will introduce you to the conservative approach. This is the most suitable approach for beginners.The conservative approach has the following traits:
- very few, but very strong, starting hands are played
- when you play, you play aggressively
- you avoid marginal situations
Your goal is to survive as long as possible. As a beginner, your goal shouldn't be trying to amass a large number of chips or trying to knock opponents out of the tournament early in the tournament. No tournament is won in the early phase - but quite a few are lost.
There are three phases in a multi-table tournament (MTT): the early phase - with relatively small blinds in relation to stack sizes, and the middle and late phases - where the blinds are noticeable, if not substantial.
This article will show you how to play conservatively in the early phase of a tournament. We will look at classic freeze out tournaments. Turbos, satellites and tournaments with rebuys often require a somewhat different approach, but the strategy you will learn in this article will help you in such tournaments, as well.
