Many times in online tournament you find a better opponent sitting on a table and you already know that opponent is highly capable in making a play... So what shud be done in that condition? shud we always try to avoid that opponent and look for fish on table? ... Consider me a noob in tournament poker and any advise of any sort will valuable...
Major advantage with cash games is u can always rebuy and even if opponent is making a play u can always check out....which is not possible in tournament..
posting a spot like this from a PGOL for an example...
