Bubble Strategy (1): Introduction
Before reading this lesson, you should have read through:
Dynamics similar to the bubble phase can be present at other times throughout the tournament, however these are much more pronounced during the bubble phase. Therefore, dealing with these situations is an important skill to develop.
In this module you will learn what your gameplan should be in the bubble phase, depending on your stack size relative to those of the other players. You will also learn in what way bubble scenarios differ between various SNG types.
You can find specific advice regarding bubble strategy in most of the popular SNG formats in the lessons to follow.
The bubble phaseObviously, you cannot draw a line and say “here is where the bubble starts”. The bubble phase dynamics arise gradually, building up as the tournament gets closer to the actual bubble. As you gain more and more experience, you will get a feel for this, and learn to adapt to these dynamics gradually.
For now though, and for the purpose of this lesson, the bubble phase needs to be specifically defined.
|It will henceforth be assumed that the bubble phase starts when there are 20% more players left in the tournament than there are on the exact bubble.|
You can try to do that calculation for other tournament types that you play. If you play a given SNG format, you will notice that the dynamics start to become recognisably more “bubbly” around a certain point.
