Triple Draw Tournament Strategy

A-5 Triple Draw tournaments can be riddled with furious action and furious players. The furious action is usually a result of novice players overestimating their hands and underestimating the complexities of the game. Oddly enough, the furious players can be explained for the same reasons; novice players overestimating their hands and sucking out on the final draw. The problem with most Ace To Five tournament players is that they are used to small stakes Triple Draw action because finding a middle to high stakes cash game online is almost impossible. There is a big difference between managing a couple bucks at the micro tables and managing 1,500-3,000 chips is a Triple Draw tournament.

There’s nothing an Casinoslots player can do about weak players making bad decisions and sucking out a winning hand except punish them for the attempt and hopefully put them out of the game before you. Coincidentally, adopting a playing style that reduces your losses to suckouts is the same that will help you win against more experienced players. Its not quite so bad in 2-7 Lowball but generally theTriple Draw players you will find online are mostly novices.

Profit and Loss In A5 Triple Draw Tournaments

The most strategically profitable playing style in an A-5 Triple Draw tournament is SLAG, or slightly loose/aggressive. “Slightly loose” refers to the starting hand selection; “aggressive” describes the betting style. A tight player plays only or mostly premium hands and folds anything less, especially from weaker positions. A loose player will play just about anything that even looks like a hand from pretty much any seat at the table. So slightly loose means you’ll play a wider variety of starting hands than a tight player, and you’ll play them from more positions.

Aggressive betting isn’t about throwing all your money into the pot and crossing your fingers, it’s about signaling your opponents that you’re serious about your hand and you’re going to make them pay for their mistakes. You can do this from any position at the table, but it’s more respected from early positions than later ones. If you’re willing to risk those chips with so many players left to act, you must have a good hand, right? But if you raise from late positions it’ll likely just get called since those positions are the most common to bluff from. The real trick is using other player’s assumptions about your hand to your advantage.
