    Poker Tournament thread (non-SBR): 2019

    Have done this in past, mostly for WSOP trips in summer. These threads seem to be well-received.

    One trend I'm seeing in Online tournaments. The saying used to be "Get it in Good." I think the saying for 2019 is just "Get it in."

    I say this b/c the players want to avoid one specific situation. Said situation is getting short-stacked and being in a situation where player no longer has Fold Equity. Pre-flop poker is MOSTLY a 60/40 game.

    By that, I mean that MOST hand matchups play to a 60/40 split. Dominated hands move into the 70/30 range. Only super-dominated hands (like bigger pocket pair) move above 80/20.

    When u add up the dead $$, most hand combinations are +EV at +200 odds. So, players just don't fold. They'd prefer to just take their chances.
