Bubble beat down

By: tristen4d @ 00:48 (EST) / 243 / Comment ( 0 )

I always find myself questioning my play at the bubble..It seems as though people's mind sets change to this guy is trying to steal the pot when I'm sitting comfortably and pushing with big hands such as K-K or Q-Q. You would think this would be a good thing but in a long tourny one of those 25-35% chances will catch up to you. Does anyone else have this problem?? I have lost so many ways with these hands flat calling early then shoving after a raise, just flat out shoving and even flat out playing opponents who then make a bluff on the flop and seem to river dance all over me when trying to bluff with A high..
