Even knowing that the luck factor has very little value in tournaments, GENERAL, whoever wins a tournament had a decisive hand, where he was behind the pre-flopp and ended up winning the hand, where the logic would have been eliminated.
In the Pokerstars stadium series final, Pessagno was the champion, and for that he saw his TT pair beat the opponent's AA pair, where he would be eliminated if he lost his hand. You can see, the great champions have always won a decisive hand even though their game is less than their opponent
I have to agree with you In any tournament I have won , I have won a couple of coinflips and and at least a couple of suckouts. And I have lost huge tourneys, such as at the final table (last 4) for 80 % of the chips at the table, with pocket aces , all in against Q7 off , Flop the set on a AK2 board , and loose runner runner to a straight.
Luck is an important factor, especially in tournaments, if you are not lucky that throughout a tournament you will hardly get far. you can choose the best spocks to play a pair of aces, but you always need some luck to advance
I think when you play a tournament with a large field you will be in coin flips a lot of time. And in shove situations too. So, you need more skills to be in ITM, bur to win a tournament you need to be in a good day with the cards.
There is not a single poker player who does not win with a weak hand at crucial moments. But not every player will be able to bring victory to their advantage. You can win big money playing like a fish, or be a professional micro player making $ 1000 a month and believing that he is doing everything right and be very happy. But at this time, someone will win hundreds of thousands of dollars. Go to your goals.
