So at that point loosen up considerably and just enjoy the ride!!!
Alternatively look for tournaments with longer blind structures which will allow yo to play skillfully for longer.
Thanks Stu so far. Nice analysis again.
I think this is a 180pl turbo sng for 100FTP points at FT (places 1-2) are paid.
I played it and I think you got the blind structure right.
To sum it up: This is probably always a serious donkfest.
I won it twice and you have to risk playing hands you don't like playing.
TAG playing won't get you far here in everyone - just get sucked out.
These tourneys start every three minutes anyway.
I'd recommend looking at these tourney's as training mode for multi-tableing.
(I set my digital countdown to 3 min and open 4 tourneys at a time)
So much for variance.
Bet harder on made hands if possible.
