This is really a huge problem for me. Lately ive been playing a lot of tourneys, and ive always seem to get in the money, but then almost always the good plays stops, and i fall out to early before the big money.

An example:

Yesterday i played a 5$+R Omaha H/L tournament on PS, 20% deep stack structure (like those) 45 places in the money! Though i played much Omaha IRL i like the different games and play that online as well. Not so successfull for some reason. Ok, back to the tourney :)

When half the players where gone i know i was going to get far. And yes soon i was in the money, again! When there was 35 left, i was in the lead with 107K, and second player had 85K. When i have some advance to the second, i dont know it seems like i lack in concentration, or just start to read the opponents bad. I dont lie if this is the hundred time, ive been in the lead when i get into the money, and then drops and cashes out bucks to make up for the rebuys.

Can anyone help me to hold it together with some good advice, cause this is starting to get very annoying. I know i can play the games, so its not that. Its just that online i have problem with this, and i want it to stop!

Keep hitting the straight flushes folks :cool:

I have no suggestions, just an observation. When you get in the money, you are better than 80% of the starting players. However, so is everybody else you are playing with. You have to expect that the competition is going to get fierce. That is to say, there are no easy answers to getting higher in the payout structure, because those around you have the EASY answers, too. It takes practice and study. Post more hand histories here to see what others think you should be doing differently.

Well, I guess that is a suggestion, too.

Play strategy?

When im in the money, and like yesterday when i played Omaha Hi/low - and when 60% of the players are gone i only play hands with both high and low posibility. AA23, KKA2, most with a flush draw. when 80% are gone, i start play a little looser. AA34, KKA3 down to 1010A3. At final tables i play quite like im sitting at a Sitn`Go table. Tighter with full table, loose-agressive with half full table, and with 5 or less players agressive. Should i change the strategy???
