Hi,
I just started playing tournaments alot more and I wonder what overall stats are desirable. Currently I hit a lot of bubbles but mostly have a shortstack. Wouldnt it be nicer to have a bigger stack less often? It would prolly save alot of time, I would have more fun (since beeing all that tight ain't fun) and you would have all the benefits of a bigger stack at the bubble.

What do you think?

if you won TRNY your goal IS in any tournament phase chase to the top list ranking 100 player ,it is best if all the time you are above average

after bubble it's to late to build stack , Always try to be 40-60 BB from early to late part of tournament

ofc I play for first. Im just wondering how much more risk I should take early on in order to have more chips at the bubble. Because having more chips should raise the chance of making the final table ;)

If you know how to pressure the midstacks when you're the table cl then definitely take more risks

If youre shortstack on bubble try not to get KO, when the bubble finishes play for the final table that means on a good card all in and hope to double up!
