      ...on the iPoker network (eg Mansion Poker), since good hands are dealt in clusters. If you have a good hand, there is 90% that there is another in the deal especially towards the end stage of their tourneys. If you are the shortest stack in the hand, you then have 1% to make it - no matter what the hand (AK against and AJ call is a good example, AA vs 88 is another)

      So, if you want to make it through the end stage: push with ridiculous hands, since you are then pretty sure that there are no other good hands in the deal. That is: completely opposite to the PokerStrategy.

      I do agree on the priciples of the PokerStrategy. Live I think they are excellent and really do work, but they does not work in the setting of the iPoker network! So if you have the choice: choose another network!!!!

      And your proof, other than 3-4 tournaments you've been unlucky in?

      Actually whats happening is that you are playing too tight and bust out when an aggro player with a much bigger stack sucks out on you.
