The all-in or the all-in is when you play it all on one hand, forcing the opponent to either fold or call a pot of the sizeable fact.
It is sometimes a strategy that can be interesting to play but only wisely because there is no draft. It’s the end of the tournament for you if you lose.
So it is therefore a strong playing strategy and action that must be approached with great care.
There are several reasons that can lead you to go all-in, a great hand that means an almost assured victory, a big bluff, or a need to redo and therefore a more aggressive game with risk taking.
All-in on the super hand
You can never be sure of winning 100% at poker, but there are some hands that you cannot help but play double or double. You have an ace flush, a square, or a full house, it is clear that it is a hand to defend, your objective will therefore be to take as much as possible and not to go all-in too early but to arrive nevertheless that one of your opponents follows you.
Especially at the start of the tournament, your opponents have not yet been able to read your game, or to spot a few tells, going all-in can pay off in many ways.
If you go all-in this implies for the players who will follow you to risk leaving this tournament very quickly if they lose, which many hesitate to do, we come to play a tournament is not to risk leaving at the end of the third hand (for example).
On the other hand, a player who shoves it all in has a bit of a theatrical side and it’s always impressive, it can be a way of asserting yourself at the table as a strong value, difficult to analyze. And having an ascendant is always interesting.
Gambling at risk
When you have a weakening stack, with the blinds increasing, it is going to be difficult for you to get to the final without taking a minimum of risk. In this case playing all-in can be a solution to try to get over it and do not hesitate if from the distribution you have a decent game go all-in.
Going all-in can therefore be an aggressive or a rescue strategy, but used properly it has saved more than one player from a quick elimination.
