PostSubject: Getting too many good hands...?    Thu Jun 09, 2011 4:27 am

Now, I know this might sound strange, but sometimes I am a little cautious about raising pre-flop 3 or 4 times in a row with decent hands for fear that someone is gonna think I'm stealing and re-raise or shove, and put me in a situation that I don't wanna be in.


For example: Early in a 9 man SnG. Stacks are all pretty even. No real reads on anyone. I get dealt AQ in late position, make my standard 3xBB raise, everyone folds. Next hand, pocket 7s. I raise, everyone folds. Next hand, pocket 10s. I raise everyone folds. Next hand pocket 9s. Now I'm in UTG+1. Even though this is a hand I would normally open with, now I'm a bit weary because I've basically stolen the last 3 blinds, and somebody might think I'm just crazy and re-raise me, or shove.

Just wondering am I over thinking, or is this something to actually take into consideration?

It's not a "strange" problem at all. At the micros, when bad players notice you raising a lot, they tend to adjust in one of two ways: (a) they start playing back at you like crazy, calling/raising with all kinds of junk, or more commonly (b) they start playing loose/passive, trying to limp in and see a lot of flops, waiting for a big hand so they can "trap this idiot for all his chips". Both of these reactions are very easy to exploit, IF you can tell which one you're up against.

The problem is that the proper ways to exploit the two types are exactly the opposite: against (a) you value bet super thin and never bluff, and against (b) you bluff a lot but can't really value bet without a monster. If you are wrong about which player type you're against you could make some costly mistakes.

My suggestion is, when you start going on a streak, pay special attention to the players at that table and see how they begin to react. You can gain a huge edge by being able to tell which types of players are which, and the ability to tell is something that comes with experience. However until you get better it's generally better to err on the side of being too tight than too loose.
