      Yeah it happens alot to me, but I know I couldn't get in that pot with that hand so it's ok :) Anyway, I usually get no good hands on MTTs and I usually get kicked out on a coinflip... That's why they're boring, hours playing sometimes for nothing...

      shit happens :) don't worry you can't constantly win like in every 2 tournaments you play. You just need to make a big hit once in a while, so be patient and play well - sooner or later you may get a reward.

      Hi guys/gals

      There are times when you need to throw it in with your weaker holdings
      it's important that you understand the concept of M

      What you describe is not actually a problem. I think you already realice that you can't play those crappy hands in an MTT. You will certaily get punished.

      Just continue with your tight play and you will sooner or later get succesful

      It's important not to waste any chips early in tournaments imo, for the first hour you have to play tight and try to accumalate chips, if you wait for top hands right through the tournament then the blinds will just catch you up and swallow you up, like i said before, you have to constantly keep an eye on your M and play accordingly, if you watch some tourneys later in the game you will see some strange plays, many people comment fish fish fish, in fact it is quite the opposite, unless you are fortunate enough to be blessed with a large stack throughout the tourney then you have get involved before you get swallowed up

      The biggest mistake i see really is players who have a decent stack and push with hands like AJ AND JJ,

      natty, i recomend you read dan harrington's tournament strategy
      mtt's are more about strategy than your hands

      good luck
