Hii Doug, I'm a poker player i play online tournaments online, and one problem i face almost 90 percent of the time, is i always struggle at the bubble time, weather it's top 10 or top 50 i always struggle at the bubble, altough my game changes by the dynamic changing environment of the game, but i don't understand what should i do? Please help

There are no incorrect plays there is just bad timing. Sometimes raising with 7-2off can work. I have never played basic strategy. I limp with aces and raise Q-2s.just cause my reading abilities are pretty good.

Doug? At 9:31, you say you're here to win this GD tournament. Why is this a GD tournament and not a ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, tournament? Does the emphasis of GD give you more credibility with your conversation? It gives you less credibility with your choice of words. I hope one day you'll learn. Its not necessary.

Zach Falbe
I think an important part of aggression is players noticing it and adapting their range, and you being able to exploit that. If they see you jam with KQ, they’ll start calling your jams with AT or A9, which gives your AQs or AKs much more value. Creating your range is almost as effective as having the hands themselves

Matti Kauppinen
I don't play my tournaments (internet grind) to cash, I play to win. Getting into the money to win my $11 buy in + enough money to buy a bag of candy is nice, but about 1/4 of the money is in the top3. I woulf rather win one for four figures than cash 30 for about $500.
If you are on the bubble then yeah survive and cash, but I would rather bust more to be the big dick stack and bully people and not min cash all the time

Edit: Just to point out, if you struggle to cash big in tournaments and you min cash a bunch, see if you always barely get in the money with a 10-25bb stack and then are forced to play all in or fold. Getting to the bubble with the biggest stack is the most profitable place in poker, you can steal the blinds and antes from basically any position with basically any two cards. If you have two small stacks on the blinds I will raise 100% of hands from CO and BU, ICM puts enough pressure on your opponents to push only something like KK+ AKs

Ryan Depaulo: Degenerate Gambler
Doug I just called off my stack trying to win a satellite seat there were 6 left 5 got seats and I was 2nd in chips in BB with 2-2 the SB had 1st in chips and he jammed and I snap called. he had AK and I lost even though I was a favorite. Afterwords someone was telling me I should have waited a hand because the player to my left had only 2BBs and was in the BB next hand. But my thinking was doug says go for it.

Sean Hoade
Damn, son, great advice. Thanks!
Comment from : Sean Hoade

Should an open size be bigger when there are antes in play? Lets say a normal open size is 2.2x bb when there are just the blinds, does it make sense to go near 3x when there are antes? Thanks if someone could clear this up a bit for me

I just bubbled thanks to this video. I raised from the CO with KdQd 2.2 BB, button re raises to 7 BB. I call flop KhJdTs. I check, button bets 7 BB, I raise to 20 BB. He goes all in and I call. He has AA.

Comment from : Zach Altman

Hey Doug Wanted to ask you what is probably a stupid question, but when I am playing online in a fairly big (500+ players) tournament I find myself typically finishing in around the 2nd or 3rd table about 80% of the time m busting out about 15% of the time and making top 5 of the final table the rest of the time. Next weekend I am going to go play my first live tournament a very small one with only a $50 entry fee and less than 10 tables. How different is this live play going to be compared to the online play? Do you have any tips? Thanks

How about not getting 2 and 3 fucking outed on the river oh about 95% of the time? Would that fucking work? Still waiting for that fucking variance to work in my favor. Skill my fucking dick. 5% skill, 95% luck this is outrageous. Every fucking tourney??????? Daniel N. says his number 5 reason you lose at poker is bad luck. How bout number one? Bullshit.
Comment from : Tommy John

Im always getting to the final 5 , the less people that are on the table the wider the range and the more difficult it gets for me .
Comment from : fuckqcc

You didn’t answer my question Doug. How do I win the WSOP every year until I’m forty. That’s my goal
Comment from : 13pbarr

Wes K
Another thing I want to add: Don't make hitting your flush or full house your priority. If you happen to flop any of those hands then that's good. That would help a lot but getting to the final table is the #1 priority over chasing flushes and full houses (especially out of position).

Also fish out for information too by observing your opponents to spot tells.

Comment from : Wes K

Small stakes tourneys are brutal. I went all-in with AA and got called by 52 off-suit and they hit a straight. I get it these things happen but my word you'd think they were playing roulette.

Comment from : Steve Mourad

Two WSOP events. Cashed one and in the last, I was in a 80 person circuit main event sat. Got down to the last few spots on the bubble. I went on a crazy run of cards. Kept getting AK after AK. Saw a few flops but folded like a beeatch. haha. The other table was all short stacked compared to us. They had all stopped playing and were stalling watching us. WTF? Floor eventually went hand to hand, and i made it thru. In the Main, outlasted 800 others to within the last 250. Funny, there were many chip and a chair and short stack heroics. Wish I had a few hands back, but it was a blast. Learned alot and hope to play a few more down the road with better results. There were $1m career earners that busted quickly. One had taken $377K in the Main Event about a month before and was in my Sat table.

damian winkler
Pro Tip nr. 5
Make sure to time your toilet runs with the breaks. How many good hands get thrown into the muck because you have to go number 2 badly. Tournament killer number 1 is not bad play but diarrhea! Don´t be ashamed to rock adult diapers because all the pros do it on the internet and probably also on big live tournaments.
Check your bum before you check your hand !

Mario Rascon
Doug: big blind ante seems to be here to stay. Does this then change the tourny strategy to play just a bit more like cash? in the sense that you're now not investing money in every pot. Do you defend your BB (which is now pretty much doubled) with an even wider range?

If I'm gonna be aggressive, I"m putting $300 on 33 at the roulette table then use my telekinetic powers to make an easy 10K. Yeah, most of the time I'll lose it, but the day I win it, I'll laugh at all these patient nerds trying to win $500 in a $150 buy in and wasting 6-8 hours of their life. I wanna make my money fast and then hit the pool at the Rio.

Hi Doug,

I just played in my first live tournament after playing online for a few years and took it down today :)

Granted it was only an $80 buy in and 50 players, but I made a cool grand for the bankroll and feel great - amazing feeling.

Keep up the great work and thanks for all the videos - you rock my man.

So I watched this video this morning and joined some low stakes tourney tonight with the deliberate notion of not thinking as much about ICM and won 50$ from like 10cents..... I gotta say winning first feels incredible after usually finishing 10th 20th or 30th or whatever. Your tip about going hard with antes and if it's your time to go really changed my game. You're my poker hero bud.

Comment from : Lork Lorkman

Jaxson Bateman
Good points, especially the last one (though you don't need us to tell you that :-P). At lower stakes levels, a lot of players really do sweat cash and final table bubbles, and as a result bluffs get even stronger than they already are. In a cash game or earlier in the tournament you might see these players call at least a flop bet to see if their equity improves on the turn, but as the bubbles approach, often they'll just fold down on the flop if they haven't hit it hard enough.

Poker is a lot like many other sports and games in the world - if you play conservatively for fear of not placing high enough, you decrease your chances of an overall win. In many forms of competition the best of the best have an all-or-nothing approach and it serves them quite well.
