I feel your pain my friend.. But after months of playing Micro MTTs. I figure out the formula to make it at least ITM. Let the players Take themselves out and play in late position with dominating hands. That way if they all go All in early position, you could jump ship and save some chips. I've gotten my Aces crack in early position more times that I could count. Do to the fact that these Bingo players in the Micro stakes just want to get lucky with any 2 Cards. Especially went it's multi pot going around and have 3 or 4 players going All in. Just wait for the middle stage of the Tournament and mostly all the Donks will be eliminated. The Micro MTTs are a good start for building your bankroll. Good luck at the tables!!Hello, I'm new player of online poker. Which MTT's is the good one? Micro MTTs are so difficult to me. Because most of the players just push all-in with Q5o, 106o etc. How to avoid it?

I completely agree with some of the other responses, but to reiterate some key points:
- Bankroll Management is key. If you're just starting out a minimum of 100 buy-ins is a must. That means if you're playing $0.55, you need $55, if you're playing $1.10, you need $110, if you're playing a mix, you need $82.50 and if you drop below this level; you need to drop down levels.
- Don't play above your bankroll to avoid donks. Trust me; they are still there, but there are also a lot more better players as well, so it is even harder to increase your roll. If you can't beat $1.10, you're not going to beat $2.20 and so on.
- Don't get drawn in to playing junk. Play a good fundamentally sound game. That may look like raising to 3BB's with A9s in middle position and then folding when the Button shoves 150BB's in the first hand of the tournament. Play slightly tighter in earlier positions. Slightly looser in later positions and make them pay when you have a monster.
- Get to the middle/late stages. By this point, the majority of the idiots have knocked each other out and you can start to play "normal" poker.
- Don't think everyone is an idiot. You can still play normal poker at the start of tournaments against the other reasonable players; you need to be able to adapt from hand to hand, depending on who is in it and what their actions are.
- Don't be afraid to lose. When you have a premium hand, and one of these players shoves all-in for the 5th hand in a row, don't be scared to call, just because he's won against the other donks.
