Adventures of a Reluctant Gambler


Getting ITM Often

By: HurtToSit @ 16:26 (EST) / 360 / Comment ( 0 )
I find it too easy to get ITM.  It must be the competition at the $10 and below levels.  It seems like it should me harder.  The first goal is always ITM, and my second goal is usually 180th.  Most tournaments after cracking 180 the prize structure isn't much different and so I play to make final table.  I think I need some advice on how to play during the 180 - 9 people left.  Are you taking all in preflop chances?  Are you picking on the small stacks?  Are you calling allin small stacks, and to what percent of your stack?  I am hovering at the same bankroll, but have had a couple over 1k possibilities go by  and boy do they look tasty!
