Making moves means that you create your own profit by setting up big bluffs.
A few of these moves are often necessary to win big tournaments.
MAKING MOVES IN TOURNAMENTS
Because of the escalating blind levels in tournaments, making a move every now and then without a real hand can be the difference between getting 10th or 1st.
You don’t have all the time in the world, as the blinds are eating your stack fast.
You may not see a real playable hand for hours sometimes, and you have to try to chip up without them sometimes.
“You can shear a sheep many times, but only skin it once.”
YOUR MOVES WILL FAIL SOMETIMES
It’s okay to make a move and it not work out.
The times that your moves DO work will put you in a much better position to ultimately win the tournament, and the big money is always in the top 3 spots.
WHERE AND WHEN TO MAKE BIG MOVES
Where and when to make your big moves can be tricky. If you are perceived as tight, then try making a move when someone represents weakness by checking to you on all 3 streets.
Typically, you’ll want to make your moves on average stacks near money bubbles or final table bubbles.
