This is a discussion on Accumulating Chips MTTS within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Hi guys.
I find it very tough to accumulate chips early-game with premium hands. People are good at folding nowadays when they dont hit the flop.

On the other hand, i find it very easy to accumulate big stacks with suited connectors and other speculative hands (those sneaky hands), that can turn into a monster. And WHEN I turn them into a monster I often get a huuge pot.
Do you call often with suited connectors, suited gap-connectors, and even fx. Kh2h IF you can see a cheap flop, or how much of your stack would you invest to see a flop with considered hands.
I'd invest very little in these hands. Obviously when they hit you can many times stack someone. Conversely, playing too many of for too much can whittle you away quickly. That said, early is when I try with these hands.
I don't like to play with such hands in the first stage of the tournaments. I play only with strong hands in aggresive mode. Yes it's true that you can win a huge pot with those cards but based on my experience this is rare.
