Ram is definitely correct...
Thats way too tight, even if u wait for a while and u pick up JJ, and run it into AKs, its pretty well a coinflip anyway.
For an example, im playing the hockey freeroll last night (im a flyers fan, I mixed it up a lil, had to fold KK after the flop (as an overpair and no paired board) so even if u get a monster, its not a winner, and with 63 remaining i picked up JJ, i had an aggressive image with average stack, i shoved someones isolation raise thinking if its a flip, the other player has his overcard outs, i thot he had 99 or 10-10 per chance. He had AK, the other guy had my J out not his A or K LOL, and he hit the flop.
Its hard to play lower stakes and freerolls
if u play a higher limit dynamic too, well sometimes
I try to mix up my play a bit, and you have to get it in wider for sure.
Just remember stack sizes, your position in the tournament, and watch how they all play. I consider myself tight, and I call all my chips off at times with A5s and i see an opponent flip over like 85 or 64o. Look to see who's on tilt many go on tilt especially in the baby stakes.
Sorry for long reply, i get into it aha
