Fear of Busting – PPP #57

It’s one of the biggest obstacles for tournament players: fear of busting! How do you become that aggressive player that is always aiming to win the tournament and taking risks in the right spots?

The stratchat hand for this week comes from Andy Howie, where he holds a draw to the nut flush. Should he play passively to try and get there, or take more risk by betting and raising?

We also discuss the new CORE course over at Red Chip Poker. It’s the poker university you’ve been looking for and it’s available for just $5.
