Game 4 - 02/07/2011 @ 10:00 WET
Rank 1020
Field 8838

Reasons for loosing: Short stacked, shoved with top pair, beaten by player drawing to flush on river.
All in (BB Ac 6c) after flop vs.2 players, 1 called chasing flush
Board 2h 5c 6h 7c 3h
My Cards (BB) Ac 6c
Opponents Cards (UTG) Kh 9h
Learnt: I CAN MAKE IT PRETTY FAR IN TOURNAMENTS BY SITTING OUT, BUT THEN MORE LUCK THAN SKILL IS REQUIRED TO ADVANCE FURTHER.

I was wondering how anyone else felt about sitting out through the early stages of the tournament.  I sat out roughly and hour and ten minutes, 6000 people were eliminated and I still had 1000 chips left when I came back to my PC.  Obviously, this was a mistake and it would have been tough to get further with such a small stack but I'm sure there's an argument for sitting out at least until 2000-3000 have been eliminated, as most of the players who gamble early may be gone by the time you sit down to play then... Any thoughts?

Thanks

Rob
