All in or fold tournament can be one fun tournament to play. However, playing in this type of poker tournament takes skill like any other tournament. While many players may think it is all luck with these types of tournaments. They are completely wrong. Cards always fall how they fall. Its either you in the hand or not that will push your chip stack higher or get knocked out of the tournament.
Since you have only two options all in or fold. You have to keep in mind your hand chooses. Also, position still play a major role in which cards you should play. AK, AQ, AJ all still look like solid hands. What if you don’t make your pair? You left with hoping your opponent hasn’t made a pair either.
Pocket pairs play the up most importance in this type of tournament. All in or fold can be profitable given the amount of players that enter them just for fun. Playing high pocket pairs like AA, KK, and QQ gives you a high percentage chance of winning your hand. Also JJ, 1010, and 99 have a good chance as well. Keep in mind playing these in position gives you better odds of winning the pot against your opponents.
Even playing pocket deuces can work out for you if you play them in position. I have played them many times on the button and they have worked out for me. Odds say you should hit your card on the flop one out of three hands. With those type of odds, playing any pocket pair in all in or fold tournaments give you a great chance of winning.
Don’t think going all in every hand will work or folding every hand will work. Either one of these options will result in you getting knocked out of the tournament. One of the best online poker rooms that offer all in or fold sit n go’s and tournaments is Reefer Poker.
