Ok so you are thinking you are doing good. Have doubled up your chips, chip leader in the table, things have gone pretty good so far. Bu the table is really slow. Filled with really tight & passive players. Nobody is risking too much.
And then you check the tournament lobby. you were like in top 20, & now you are suddenly over 100!
And then the worse thing happens. You get moved to a table where almost all have way more chips than you and they play loose and aggressive.
How do you cope up with this? What are your choices to avoid these kind of situations?
I always get this rush to catch up with the rest. Specially in the late stages when closing to the money. Why? Because I want to make maximum profit. Not get in the money.
But being short handed, you get bullied out of drawing hands very easily.
