Changing the size of bets, limps
Beginners tend to vary the size of the stake depending on the strength of their own hands – went to the KK – put 5X, something went weak, but throw out a pity – limp. This is a clear face, and every player who understands anything, will necessarily mark you with the appropriate icon. It will be right to change the size of the bet depending on the size of your stack (usually from 3X to 2X).
Limp
This phenomenon must be said separately. Lim is the minimum possible bet equal to BB. Players use it when they want to “economically” get into the distribution of “suddenly I’ll fall into the flop.” This is a very big mistake – beginners can never limp. First, you provoke other players to overlapping – in this case you will play multipot, and with an average or weak hand the probability of winning it is quite small. Secondly, you provoke understanding players to isolates – a person who values ​​his hand as playable and strong, will raise a good raise.
Ranges (ranges of opening hands) are the same for all positions
If the faces relative to the size of bets are easily eliminated, then the errors in the ranks will have to work long and hard – first you should even print them yourself for different stages of the tournament.
Most often, players do not understand that from the early positions one needs to open significantly already than with BU, and their ranges do not change in any way depending on the position and the tournament situation.
The same applies to the Coke, especially against the early positions and with sb (with it in general it is not worth poking – you will play without position). In understanding players, the spectrum from the early ones will be pretty strong, and you should not call with JI like KJo against UTG – usually you will be under domination.
Misunderstanding of push / fold
Push / fold is a critical knowledge for MTT – when the size of your stack becomes less than 16-13 bb, you should switch to push / fold – either you put all-in, or fold. In this case, you need to know which hands should be pushed and from which position.
