here...
If you have lots of time, see this. and you'll be felt that their skill is soooo improved compare to past. T.T especially, the bubble stage. I can't even find decent all-in spot..

So. my last method is blind out. I just want 7th. I just don't want 8th position. I didn't expect that bubble is soooooooo long.

Luckily, I finished on 7th place(yeah!!!) and I got money!!!! However, I'm not satisfied. because, this was just luck, not my skill.... It's possible that I'll reach 8th place the next day..., which is worst place ever

So. I need to advice about this.

Let's discuss about this tournament and let's discuss how to beat this tournament xD

- Open folding A9 in the SB, wow.

- You can fold to the 3bet with 88

- Don't open limp KK

- Open QJ from the CO

- Another KK limp, don't do this

- On a table this tight you should be stealing a lot more than this, don't even look at your cards

- good fold with Q9 bvb

- K6o in CO easy shove for 6bb

... And from there you basically lock up and blind out.

1. Early stage. I don't want to leak some chips on early stage....
2. Hmm.. Why slowplaying kk is not good play? I can't understand.. I slow played for induce squeeze play or standard raise to get value
3. Big stack... I hate big stack. Big stack is so good at playing LAG
4. Bubble and So many short stacks. At least, I just want ITM..

here is my futile excuse..... T.T

1. Why not? you can't make chips if you are not willing to leak chips sometimes. In MT SNG you are better off being more aggressive, whereas in a 9 man or 6man sng, tightening up is a better idea since we don't need that big of a stack size to cash. In 45mans we need to triple our stack at least to make a deep FT run, so we're gonna have to take risks.

2. it's a good idea only if you have reads to make it a good idea. THe only real time i'll do it is when a hyper aggressive maniac style player is at the tbale.

3. You are much better off colliding with the big stack then letting him push you around and make you fold your way out of the tournament. Both optinos kinda suck, but folding your way out of a tournament is the WORST thing you can possibly do, at least if you stand up to the big stack you have a chance of winning, whereas folding you have no chance really.

4. ITM is good, but really you are only looking for the top 2 positions, that's all we really care about, so while it makes sense to fold your way ITM you also want to balance that with making enough chips so when you get past the bubble you have a really good chance of making it to the top 2 spots.

You let rubbish into the hand that normally wouldn't be in, and they might out flop you if you let them see the flop for free or a min bet, then it's easy to bleed chips to them if you still think your KK is good after the flop.

Never limp KK, Wizzim has a good point on when you can limp with it.

oh.. thanks to the advise, but I don't know how to be aggressive(My vpip is around 13), how to distinguish playable hand or unplayable hand, and especially how to steal blinds aganist lag big stack which is seating right on me. In other words, How can I aganist to skilled lag-type big stack player?
By the way, I use pokerdb(freeware poker hud software xD) to analyze their playing style, but sample is too little. most of each player's number of hand sample is just around 10~30. Is it believable?...

Against LAGs on your right that steal a lot you can try and 3-Bet resteal. Because when they open very wide they will often fold to a Reraise.

With an aggressive big stack to your left you should be willing to pick a hand and gamble with them at some point. Better to go out fighting than just blinding yourself out.

Alternatively, look to your right instead and pick a resteal spot ;)
