Playin in a $2 MTT right now and i've been card for 33 hands. Had QQ got 1 caller. A came on the river n he mini re-raises my bet. I fold bcos it's still early, i think im beat...Then the only hand after that would of been 7Ts UTG which would of won me a fullhouse but who's playin 7T UTG?
Anyways my other cards have been rubbish. no point in raising bcos every1 is limpin early pos and the table is callin most raises. But how do u play the early stages of these competitions? I know u play tight n play ur premium cards aggressive, but there's gotta be a better strategy in these micro stakes where's it's filled with callin stations to rape them.
ooooh i jus got KK n the big stack in BB calls with 67. he hits 2pair on flop. i catch a K on turn. Whey! \o/ still tho i've only got 3500 chips now and the blinds are 40/80.

re: Poker & Micro problem
You can't play most micro tournaments too tricky. The skill just isn't there- and since the investment is so low, people are more than willing to dump all their money off on backdoor draws, weak middle pairs, etc.
I've found patience and hitting my big hands hard are the best way to succeed in these tournaments.

after making it up to 3500 i decided to play tight & big hand aggressive with some possitional stealing.
After a while i got upto summit like 18k which is not bad. Then sum guy took a bad beat and pushed all-in 3times in a row. He does it for the 4th time UTG and i've got A9o in the SB. I decide with a M of 6 and needing a double up this guy could have f**k all and decided to call. He shows Q4, woohoo im well ahead. He catched a 4 on the river n i've lost 16k. Ahwell...
