Okay well, patience is the number one thing you need to win in big tournaments..! If you sit back and watch all the noobs go out and all the people sitting out, you will probably have a good chance in getting into something good.. But i see some people trying to get high quickly and some might, but in the end they getoverly confident and lose most or all of there chips!

I play holdem about 1 year and the first tournament i decide to be serious was about 6 hours of game. I think its just about patience. I think u will have to be in good health and mind to stay sit for hours and good to go at the end. Many players (thats include me) loose the game because dont have patience to stay sit for a long time.

One thing it took me a while to appreciate is that patience means being able to wait for good opportunities, not simply good cards. They can be the same thing, but not necessarily. You can have good cards in poor opportunity situations, and good opportunities without good cards.

You can have good cards in poor opportunity situations, and good opportunities without good cards. That is an absolutely sublime post sir, I salute you. In answer to the poll, I'd tend towards the tight aggressive, loosening up (oftentimes too much) once I'm approaching the money. Didn't respond t the poll as the question seems to suggest that patience and aggression are mutaually exclusive, which is not the case.

If I'm at a table where there are a couple of people going nuts with the all-in ... I sitout and walk away from the screen. I have been caught out several times by having good cards and calling an all in AND being way ahead only to lose to some bad cards coming up. I would rather miss out on some early hands whilst watching the opposition to gauge their skill, ability, and luck before starting to play. Too many people get in with the intention of doubling up 2 or 3 times and then sitting out until deep into the tourny, they take bigger risks and I try and avoid them until much much later in the game. Patience and possibly a good book or two will definitely get you a lot further into a tourny, but once your there are the blinds go up, so does the level of your game. The need to be more aggressive comes in to play, because patience will just get you blinded out in the end.

u can only play the cards u r delt, there is no point in playing marginal hands in the early part of a tournament as u will almost always find a fish who is on a draw and ends up beating u.

Often times I find that playing tight helps in several ways - playing less hands means not throwing chips out - somtimes the all in guy will only put you on big hands call for the flop and fold to the continuation bet instead of their all in play - when you get monsters they will almost always pay to see when they hit their marginal hands By all means play aggressive and see cheap flops while the blinds are low, but in light of the AI these will be few and far between. Far better to hold on to your chips at least until the blinds are worth something to you, and you still have enough to make serious bets.

When I play multi table tournements, which is not oftan, because of the time required, I play very tight to begin with because of the all in crowd. If I get a very good starting hand such as AA or KK and maybe ak suited, then I am prepared to go all in pre-flop as it presents a good opportunity to double up. I would not raise all in myself, but would call an all in if I felt that I was a favorite to win - you do not get that many top starting hands and have to make the most of them.
