      Hi, Im currently trying my hand at FL Mtt's on everest but i have a problem.
      Im following the PS FL guide as per starting hands and pre/post flop play but i find that its not working..would i be correct in thinking that the chart assumes that at least 5 of the ten players wont re-raise up to the max with any 2 suited cards and any K or A-rag?

      Any advice on dealing with these guys as im stumped. 2x QQ 3x AA 2x KK 4x KAs/o were either busted on river (non draw hvy boards) by 2 junk pair or i missed the flop and was faced with a LOT of agression on the flop.


      Heeeeeelp!!

      You should play super tight at the beginning and only play small pots with overpairs in the first levels. You make the most chips when everyone has ~20BB (from my experience) so that was the time I was making moves. Also remember the maniacs some of them will make it far but rarely to the final table and most of them drop out in the first 5 levels. But they can save you later when they are betting their K-high and you call down with A-high ;)
      You should also play suited Ax hands and small pairs in multiway pots and in position but only continue with the nut draw or a set. Later I would start playing your draws aggressively.
