      Hello Robertzv

      I recommend using an appropriate bankroll management (BRM) for tournaments, because the swings can be huge. Especially on field with more than 1k players in it what happened a lot on PokerStars. I would use 300-400 buy-inns if you play a lot of them to have a big enough bankroll to handle the swings with it. So if you have a bankroll of $600 you can only play the <=$2,20 tournaments.

      Cheers,

      If you lose against ‘bingo players’ a lot when they are all-inn pre-flop than you had most likely bad luck the whole time against them, but if it’s post-flop than it’s a lot easier to over play your over pairs. Then it’s most likely better to find these hands and post them on our Hand discussions for Tournaments board and then everyone can give you feedback about this type of hands.

      in order to win more with QQ KK AA don't slow play them. Play them fast and hard and charge your opponents to draw.
