      After the 1st break, with luck, i have 10K chip, and my position is 152/2660.

      Time to steal blind.

      What do i need to care about?

      Cant steal blind :( . The big stack at my table very active.

      Only have a premium hand QQ but have to fold on flop AK8.

      Only 5K chip and my position is 893/1175. 630 place paid.

      What do i need to do to make final table? I am praying now. :)

      Steal from position with any A or K or pair.
      if you had less then 10 bib blinds just push if you had hand!

      yes, i pushed with 9s8s from UTG, got 2 customers, I prayed "PokerStars helps me!", but it didn't work. i have been just busted out.

      I had been busted out near bubble 2 times. I need to improve my High Blind play.

      Next time i will be in the final table :)

      98s is a push only fom the Bu if it has been foldd round to you, its a prety bad move from UTG :(

      UTG pushes are pretty much premium holdings only!
