The longer you play, the more experience you get.
You don't neccessarily grow out of that stage, just learn when you think you have the right odds
to keep at it.
Also, are you asking before the cut off or after the cut off for the money because before, it is sometimes worth the shove if everybody else is waiting for the cut off. With this strategy you can quite easily double or tripple up and make the money.
Once in the money, usually there is a mad rush by the lower stacks to try to double up, so patience is required and just sit out cos you will automatically move up the leader board, or at least I do.
