re: Poker & Tournament
It often gets critical when you only have less than 10BB left. The problem is that if you play against big stacks on your table that they will call a BB or a raise (that is high in comparison to your stack) because they at first have not that bad hand, want to see the flop and third try to bust you.
You simply were too late to rescue the situation, i think. Perhaps you would have won an earlier pot at 8-9BBs and doubled up... Even if you double up 2BB you are kind of busted anyway...
