Its just at the end you frequently need to get aggressive in stealing blinds, otherwise you'll get blinded off.
I can't. I play at Carbon Poker and I dunno how to transport the HH into a readable format here... unless I manually enter the text I suppose.
With a little better luck, I think I would have cash in a couple more than I actually have done. There are times when I am sitting in 4th or 5th place and watch the short stack moves in with marginal hands, get called by big stackers and get lucky to double up. So instead of me being closer to cashing, I end up moving down in ranking and being on the bubble.
When it's my turn to shove, I have yet to get my chips in bad but get lucky but I've lost a bunch of 60-40 type hands and a couple even worse. I remember one time I went all in with QQ and got beat by 89. The best break I've gotten with tournament life on the line is AK winning vs. 44 when all in.
Anyway, over the last few days I've stayed away from these DONs and my luck in cash games even improved. Running real good now at cash (a function of running into overly aggressive guys and avoiding bad beats), so I think I am gonna stay away from these SNGs for a few months at least.
