some players who have won many chips and run good in a tourney decide to stay out of sit , if they are not offline or they havent any obligation to do ,why they sit out after the bubble ??

Some people just can't stay for 2.5-3 hrs to finish the tournament.

I think because the people wait a BB is more cheaps, and they start to play.

All different reasons... sometimes, they just don't want to play anymore, and if they have a huge stack, they know simply blinding out will raise them a lot of positions in the tournament while others bust out.

Some people do it when they have an enormous amount of chips just to keep from getting in dumb situations before the final table. I disagree with their ideas wholeheartedly, but people are people.

Or sometimes they just have connection trouble and have no choice in the matter.

There definitely isn't really any strategic reason to ever do this, except possibly in the case of a satellite tournament if you think you already have enough to where you can't possibly miss out on the seat.

Very often I see this in the qualifiers, when chip leader, having a decent stack goes to sit out, that would not lose chips and 100% necessary to qualify for the tournament

1. it's a satellite. they are well over the projected neede stat to hit the 50th/60th place for the ticket so there is no reason to double and triple up since it's the same last place or 1 palce.
2. they are scared to make a stupid mistake and double up some one while loosing 2/3 of their stack

something in thous lines... at leaset thats why I do it =)

Everyone has different reasons. It is necessary to ask the players themselves.)) At one time is limited and they are not expect to play so long. Others that something urgent has happened. There are players who sit and watch the game. They simply have included the lack of a button and at the moment a bad card.

i do it sometimes to gain some places and take a longer break. So I can resist miself to play to many hands because I have enough chips.

but there are different reasons and normally i try to play the whole game. But sometime i am at the point where i lack discipline

I too find myself lacking the discipline to ignore playing a hand that I don't need to. Then I find that I have lost enough chips that my stack is now out of the bubble placings and have to focus and play properly to try and recover. I should sit out more.

I do this from time to time also however it is never planned. I usually try and make sure to block out 3-4 hours of time if I am playing in a tournament but things come up. I have a small child also so sometimes I have to sit out a bit and take care of her if my girlfriend needs to go to the store or something. Also like yesterday I was playing in one and had to sit out for about 30 minutes and luckily I had a decent chip stack. My friend had an emergency and I was the only one he could contact to come pick him up. There could be any number of reasons for people choosing to sit out.

They want just to get into the money, so after they earn few chips they sit out and wait for the bubble to end. They don't want to take the risk of being kicked out. Sometimes you can lose with AA and get out so... you chose the safe way.

Well sometmes i sitout coz i need to run to the store and buy somethings i need or take a bathroom break, so i understand that, but some players are sitingout after the bubble coz they want to get deep ITM with out playing the bingo game, coz bubble play and post bubble play are the craziest times to be sitting on a poker table :D and thats exactly the time that u should gamble, and push your self towards the bigger payouts :D u r already ITM, so the question is "how desperate u are" most of the times ull get burned, but sometimes ull do the burning :D

This is pretty common in tables loaded with loose/maniac/bingo/recreational players early in a tourney. If you somehow got a serious amount of chips, you just don't want to give them away as fast as you got them.

I do not see this as a problem. Let wait if they want. The fewer people playing the earlier play a good hand.
