micro stakes tournies are the loosest tournies with a paid entry fee. They're loaded with maniacs and calling stations. The way to beat them is to have a TON of patience. Wait for a good hand, then let them double you.
If you want to continually see flops with marginal hands in them, you're in big trouble. The next time you play one, see what your flop % is (from the stats tab). My guess is that you're playing too many hands and need to be folding more. Depending on how good of cards you're getting, the flop % should be anywhere from 10% if you're not getting cards, to 25-28% if you're getting great cards.
