Defense wins championships according to Negreanu
You can't win a tournament on the first levels but you can bust from it, that's Daniel Negreanu's philosphy.
How many times players get eliminated on Day 1 of tournaments for playing hands they should not have played. Is it worthy to risk your tournament with hundreds of blinds ahead? Daniel Negreanu says no. It is not acceptable, you can’t aloud that. After all, defense wins championships.
We all love offense. Creative plays, bluffs, hero calls we could tell for years later. BUT, yes there is a but, when we play tournaments we must think about something else.
The goal in a tournament is to survive. Survive until we are the last ones standing. Yes, with the throphy and millions of dollars and maybe the golden bracelet. To do so, KidPoker says you must defend.
In sports defense wins championships and poker is a sport. You can’t win a tournament on the first levels but you ca bust.
