During a tournament I always have a sense of uneasiness when deciing to play the first hand of a tourney. Now I usually play some lower limits as I don't have a high bakroll, and whenever I'm dealt a hand I want to raise with pre-flop I get a bad feeling. It makes me want to toss my Aj Aq or JJ etc. and I have to close my eyes and bet when Im dealt AA KK AK etc. mainly because unless I have notes on people, I don't know who the maniacs are and when they may strike. Now with the monster hands its okay, but when I raise with JJ and I get re raised all in by a lunatic, I all of a sudden have to make a decision for my tournament life. How do you suggest playing the first hand or two in a tourney?
