Wait a few minutes into the tourney, only play premium cards and hope.
Fold a lot.
Tag your targets (red,pink,blue whatever).
Watch every showdown.
Measure their range if they're shoving.
Take them out later.
Anyone shoving before the flop must be considered foolish.
Let them knock themselves out.
Take them out later. Half of the field will eliminate itself in no time.
You ought to call with AA,KK though.
Even if you call 5 all in bingos with AA you should have more than 50%
chance of winning and a 5:1 payout if you win.
