The main thing is that that you say it's "now" bad. How can it become bad? You must be either tilting or your end game wasn't as good as you think and your run good might be coming to an end. If your early/middle game is good then I wouldn't recommend you playing 180's turbos and stick to normal speed tournaments and try learn your end game because the end game of MTT's is where the most profits come from, not the early/middle stages. You can simply just play like a nit in most parts and when you approach the 30bb or less stage, this is where most of the mistakes come from in my experience, especially as stacks get even more shallow like 15bb and less.
cheers, nah i don't think my run good ever started lol. i think i was slightly tilted that night when i posted, however for the past week or so i keep coming in to the final 2/3/4 tables and not final tabling. i think mostly this is down to a lack of confidence as i just had my worst month. i feel i am playing pretty well, for example in the middle stages i can be in total control of a table when the stacks are deeper, but when it gets to the final 2 or 3 tables, as you said, when the stacks are shallower i am not doing so well. not winning flips etc that is needed to win. i don't think it is entirely just a case of winning flips though, i am obviously doing one or two things wrong. like perhaps being too cautios nearing a final table when earlier on i would have no fear of getting ko'd or whatever.
today i was in the $2.20R 500 cap. (i have dropped down in stakes due to bad month.) at the bubble i was raising like every hand and was around 3rd in chips when it burst. after that i kept a good stack, and at final 2 tables was average. however, at this point eveyone has 20 bb's. before i would probably be confident in being able to come out on top of this, as i have previously felt this sort of stack size i was able to play very well, however i was just thinking that there is soooooo much luck at this stage. picking up a pair higher than other player, better A etc. and sure enough, out with A Q v A K haha. kind of frustrating as i feel i have a pretty good edge throughout but when the stacks are all pretty short and everyones playing pretty tightish ( i can't really raise a ton of hands with 20 bb's when everyone has shoving stacks) i feel i don't really have a huge edge here.
i will post some hands i tried to do one earlier but it didn't let me upload it on boom for some reason.
this isn't an amazing hand or whatever, just what has been happening a lot recently when i am deep. (again smaller buy in but almost $1k for 1st so still pretty decent.) think around 30 left here. http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hand...086_AF3AEF974E
then same tourny again not many left a couple of nights before. http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hands/Boom/5603745_C5D839A96F
A J< 7's in $10k gtd $11 last night with 20 odd left.
and 2 or 3 times i have come inside top 50 of $5.40 ko 1st prize $2k or more then ran QQ in to AA and something similar again. with QQ i felt deja vu from previous times even flatted 3x open from mp. flop comes paired with f/d he shoves slightly over pot so obviously snap calling as doubt he'd do this with KK or AA (although was obvi never folding anyway) and yeah he has AA lol.
was thinking about getting some old hand histories from previous final tables of mine and watching them to see if i done anything different then. think this a good idea?
