comment Easy to memorize starting hand strategy
I think the point about tournaments is important. In both cash games and tournaments you starting hand selection and betting patterns should relate to the stack sizes, blind/ante structure, number of players at the table and your position at the table. More advanced strategies also adjust for the way the other players are playing, and their table positions relative to yours. You range playing heads-up at the end of a tournament has to be very different to your range playing 10-handed in a deep-stack cash game!
comment How do you hide your tells?
Game theory suggests that you should randomise on which hands you alter betting patterns. If you can use a truly random source then it makes it impossible for opponents to work out any pattern of strategy changes (other than the frequency if they have a big enough sample size).
