Gaining more points...

Learning how to play semi aggressively is important in these skill tournies.  I will admit that I get myself into too many pot committed situations, but I think that's the whole point of tournament poker.  I'm not bluffing much anymore either, aside from a semibluff to steal a checked pot.

I have been paying more attention to stealing blinds, and getting my money into the middle when I have a good position.  This has paid off with two decent finishes -- compared to the total misses previously.  I just feel like I'm playing too passively, though.
