    Playing middle pair

    Yep you have to figure in everything. Your opponent and your gut as well.

    play tighter, dont get in situations when all u have is middle pair, if ur calling preflop with middle pairs, either hit a set or dump it

    for me it depends on all of that...how many ppl call, if ppl raise and how big my stack is...usually i'll call with middle pairs if ppl don't raise, just to see the flop

    Depends on the stack sizes and blinds at the time.

    Let "H"=Hero (You) and "V"=Villain and E=Early in a tourny, M=Middle, L=Late.

    1. E with both H and V having 35-50 BB's. See a flop and go set mining. Give up quickly if you don't hit your set.

    2. E with H being short stacked "10-15" BB's and V being deep stacked (35-50) BB's. Again if you can see a cheap flop, do so. But only go set mining or if the flop all goes under your cards rank (you have an overpair)

    3. M with H and V being both middle stacked "15-25" BB's Same as early in a tournament, set mining and give up if miss.

    4. All other combinations-----Give up with a medium to large stack facing a raise, or if it's been called down, assume they have a big ace and only play if you hit an overpair or set. With a very short stack, re-raise all in and gamble. With a moderate short stack, fold immediately if facing a raise.

    I play by gut a lot of times but usually I factor in opponent,blinds, and stack sizes
