re: Poker & Top Dog in 1200 person tounament with 100 people left...
I would have to agree with most everyone else by recommending to tighten up and play carefully. I'm always tempted to try and bluff my way to more chips with the rationale that "hey, I still got plenty more" untill the next biggest stack at the table gets doubled up... However, one thing I always like to do when I have some chips is to make sure that, if I want to play a hand and people are trying to limp, I'll make them pay. Since I got chips, it'll cost you some extra to see the flop, which can help you get a good read on your callers. Then if you hit something, excellent, so many more chips already ion the pot. If you miss, hey, to you, 4-5 BBs isn't that much anyway, but at least you know now who might be willing to chase your raise.
