I agree that if you play 6 players or less the cards are going to play less of a part because pocket cards will go up in rating any way.
This question might go back to the old one of how often do you get into the money playing 100+ MTT and do you play to win or to place.
I know one of the famous poker pros said something like "Sometimes to live you must be prepared to die!!!"
My question is how many lives do you need?
I find Stef that if I go into aggressive mode I always feel I get caught - unless I already have a large stack. I know your style is an aggressive one, but as yet I find it hard to deal with the ups and downs.
I also find that in a close situation I make the wrong decision. In one of the CC games I was UTG with A6d and I had about 6 times bb left. I was so close to pushing. Can`t remember who acted after me but it was one of the girls. She put in a large raise with 99 I think (full table) you said "time to gamble" and pushed with K10o. flop was something like K66. Turn A, river A. (results orientated I know.
Last Friday, same tourny, I`m left with about 6 times bb. at cut off, AJ. I push. Get called by one of the guys who turns AQ (he had about 4 times my stack) he catches FH.
So when to gamble or when not to gamble, that is the question!!!
