I have heard great arguments on both sides of this issue, but I am mstill unsure as to where I stand in my own personal creed. When playing multitable tournaments such as freerolls
, is it better to make big risky moves at the beginning and double, triple, or quadruple up early or try to hold out for the safer cards? I am often greatly annoyed when people go bottoms-up first hand into a tourney, but then again, I suppose going all-in and losing in a couple of minutes is better than spending 4 hours and getting nothing. That actually happened to me; I tried to play out hands and eventually wound up being short-stack toward the end. Backed into a corner, I tried maneuvering and couldn't find the light of day. I was only 9 places away from the money. Thoughts?
