Tony's Final Table Tips ✏️
Here are a few tips to help sharpen up your game for showtime!
- Be aware of stack sizes and pay jumps at all times, even the slightest changes in stack sizes can shift strategy dramatically
- When short stacks exist, there is extra pressure on the bigger stacks to avoid busting out
- The chip leaders can use this extra pressure to win many pots while the short stack is in play
- As a medium stack vs larger stacks be cautious with any bets and raises and try to take marginal hands to showdown passively
- Preflop ranges shift quite a bit at final tables due to this effect with big stacks playing much wider ranges and medium stacks much narrower ranges
- Do not be afraid to ramp up your aggression against poker players that are playing tight in the hopes of laddering up
