Small MTT at local Casino


Hi...I just played my first time in a casino in a live tournament. I play in a local poker tour in Louisville 3 to 4 times a week and wanted to try playing in a tournament at our casino. I love, love, love tournament no limit texas holdem and my first time I think I did rather well. The problem that I have is trying to stay patient enough to not chase cards or chase a hand after the flop or trying to bet out another player even though my pair won't beat theirs and I am waiting to get a set on the turn or river. If I could just learn to keep my head and make better decisions I think I am going to be quite successful at playing in casino tournaments. I just wanted to ask you think that 80% of the time you should have a good hand after the flop or if you don't make a decent hand should you fold. I usually play with people who are hard to scare out of a hand with a bet....even when I am in a good position. How do you decide when to stay in a hand or fold? Sometimes I look at what I muck and then see the flop and two out of the three cards are what I was holding in my starting hand...boy that really tilts

If you are struggling to play solid ranges preflop you should check out some range charts for sure. Ill post the link to the ones I use. Also playing a value heavy style against weak competition can be fine but saying you need to have a good hand 80% of the time isn't the right way to think about that.
here is the link to the preflop charts
