No, actually NoD said what he neabt, and he's right. Playing not to lose is a break even proposition, especially in miro tourneys, where the pay out schedules are so top loaded that the only way to get a decent payday is to go deep. Play yer best game all the time, pay no attention to "the bubble"; in the long run, you're gonna be way better off, AND you won't develop near so many bad habits. If the difference between cashing and not is 10-11k, like the ME, that's one ting, but why play scared hoping to turn a 85 cent profit?
