I have learned  that, these tourneys are a marathon and not a sprint! for those that think they have to have an over abundance of chips to get farther in the tourney. is highly mistaken!  it boils down to chip management. playing tight and paying attention to those players around you....even listening to those players that are higher up in the standings!  Sometimes u have to tap dance ur way around the donks, shove monkeys etc....But stick to your plan and follow thru!!! This is what has worked for me!  since the first of the month starting at 1500...yes  I fell behind,...Until one day I finally turned the corner and now i have moved up in rank and score!  current score 1729.37 and ranked  323...(and shooting for the the top 100) .What also has helped me is not gettin burned out trying to hard and playing so many tourneys in one day...Keeping a clear head...and playing tight has helped me advance....Just cause ur holding AA KK QQ JJ...preflop doesnt guaruntee its going to win for ya everytime.!!!!  I see so many players go all in or over bet thinking there going to gain some major advantage...Yet they get all pissed off  when they loose there chips or get dumped out of the game cause a player has a better hand.....A word to the wise.....Use good conservative and you'll finish in the money..or even make and win a final table....Good Luck and see ya at the tables!!!  :-D
