G'day mates

Well I started yesterday with a $0.00 balance for a poker bankroll yesterday having busted out.
I lost 14 all in moves in a row, in each case I was ahead and heavily favored to win.
So I played three freeroll tournaments and I win barely enough to sit down at the 0.01/0.02 NL.
I start playing and after a day of really trying to play my "A" game.

I am now sitting at $11.83

I think I did alright to build from nothing to where I am now in a short time frame.

I have been deploying a Hit & Run tactic in which I sit down at a table usually with the minimum buy in amount, and the moment I double up I leave the table on my very next big blind with the profit.

I normally hate hit and run players who just sit down with the minimum and try to double up then leave with my money. However I have been finding that in the last 24 hours it has been working damn well for me.

What do my fellow mobsters think of Hit & Run players?

Best of luck amigo's
Be cool

Ronin Cool

Well it s a tactic that works ... i used to play it in speed poker games...

just starting with min buy-in so your risk at an allin is not that high, and if you get over 50 % profit , just leave the table.

In some speed poker games (party poker) you can start with 2 euro, leave at 3 and get back at the tables with 2 euro...

There is nothing wrong with it mate, especially when you have a short BR to play for a longer spell. Whatever works best for you.

That is a common strategy from man players.
I do this myself some times, when im trying to get my losses back faster than normal
grinding.
You just need to be a little more lucky to win a couple of all ins Smile

if it works if works.

i personally don't see any real advantage to have a small stack if you don't adapt your playing style to it...say if you continue with the usual style of playing the premium hands, tight play etc. then what you end up is having a short stack once you do find yourself in +EV situation...but if you use sss with loose play, more aggression, more flips taken there is logic behind it.

good luck at the tables

Yeah there is nothing range to this style of play doing hit and run is part of the game. If you play short stack strategy it is a must, when you get to a certain level of profit you must leave to protect your gain.

Also when I see people do this, I think of them as shortstakers, but sometime you can feel bad if they just got a stack from you and suddenly they leave the table leaving you frustrated lol.

Anyway sorry about your busting your roll but congrats on managing to get some of it back!

It definately works and i know players that apply it but here come the bad part: Regulars usually will avoid you if you play like that.

This happend at least back in the day i played NLHE and saw players that were "avoided".

G'day mate

Well there are already reg's who leave the table once I sit down.
It seems amongst some players I have a positive reputation as a decent player.
I do not understand it because we all know I am a total fish Smile
be cool mates

The majority of Hit and run players will get recognised from top regulars who will wait to trap them or sit-out or also leave the table,

Thus Hit and run players who over do it will lose on long-run or not make a true poker profit in the spirit of the game, so don't make a caree of it..lol,

There is a big handfull at the tables doing the circuit and do make a profit, but they are what they are? It's not illegal so it exists since poker began.

The odd hit and run is ok with me, considering the downswings we all go thru, especially if you wanted to make a buy-in and was short-stacked which is my personal golden rule on Hit & RUN.gg all Diamond

If there are SSS at my table I love it, because the hand ranges are nearly transparent and I can shove with solid hands knowing I'm probably ahead.
I don't care about the hit n run aspect, and to be fair if SSS is your tactic then you are wise to do so because everyone (with a brain) will figure your strategy out sooner or later.

Depends on the game you pla and their range of cards for the all ins.
If they are players you have tagged then its easier to figure out their hands.
If they are new ones then you need to think it twice.
In omaha for example which i mostly play h/l, i have tagged many players (hit and run)
and the easier of them to make some profit are the ones with AA Smile
Pot raise preflop and pot bets, to all in, through rive.r no matter what the board has Smile
