I just started playing micro stakes NLHE tourneys as a beginner I have read up on MTT on poker school so I have been playing tight-agg for the first 3-4 blinds in a reg speed game, the problem then I have is that if I don't build up my stack in the first 3 blinds because I haven't had any cat 1 or 2 hands then I seem to be forced make bad calls out of desperation to not get blinded out has anyone got any advise please???

My advice would be instead of making bad calls and getting desperate you want to look for spots to steal or even re-steal. If you look through the video archives you should find something that could help you. A good one to start you off perhaps is this video about the math behind stealing blinds.

It's one of those things that seems like a simple concept but can be tricky to master, so good luck

are you playing turbo or hyperturbos by chance? your stats don't show up, might be private games with weird time structure?
