lol sry im not very organized...but basically i will put this into steps for ya...this is how i would play in a tourney
1- 1st hour start of by playing lag and looking at a lot of flops if yr table lets u....a lot of times u might hit str8 and even a flush with small suited connectors which will get u a nice big pot.
2- i honestly hate how a lot of ppl try to just grind it to make it in to the money....i think if u can win one big one it will make up for the other ones so that means sometimes u have to take risks if u want to be a looose player like for example daniel negreanu i think he is a loose player but he knows when to fold
3-if u want a nice chip stack and want to ft the tourney u have to be aggresive during first hour and get a nice stack to take the tourney down and if u just sit tight and have about a medium stack then at some point ur going to have to bingo and u cant always win coin flips and crap like that.
4-u got to get used to the table ur at...if ur a tight player....raise when u can to make yr hand look strong ( also know when to fold and watch out for traps) but if ur at a loose table with a lot of ppl raising and goign all in every hand just wait for a very strong hand and bust one of them since a lot of loose players like to play A rag...A7 and crap like that.
5-2 be honest phil ivey could come in here and give u tips....but actually its all up to u...u have to be able to adjust to the players ur playing against. and i dont know if u watch poker on tv or not but for example daniel negreanu will raise u from sb or the button with a hand like 89 suited and a lot of times he will take it down on the flop ( he wins a lot of small pots but thats live) so i would suggest not to get all tricky and crap like that on here especially on stars cuz u know u some of the bad beats
6-and one last thing...make sure when ur chasing u know u have a lot of odds
...u wont always hit but if the other player is betting small and letting u chase then do it...but i really hate putting my stack in on a draw i like to have the best hand when im all in....also sometimes u just have to say f it and take risks to build up a nice stack. it just depends if u think ur lucky enough to hit or if u think ur not 2 lucky and ur not hitting 2 many cards. this one is up to ya.
