TAG is what we all need to learn right? At least learn when and how to use it.
BTW, Congrats! Great job.
If you haven't read Doyle's book he encourages very aggressive betting. He encourages this betting even with very marginal if not junk hands, just because most people will fold. I have watched him on television and I have never seen him play that loose like he describes in his book, but he does bets aggressively.
It is not easy deciding when to big bet. I found myself hesitating because betting half or 3/4 or even my entire stack on a pair is a little intimidating especially when you want to get deep into the tourney.
