    2 table tournaments are a good thing to play because they simulate the end of a major tournament and don't take too long. You need to know how to get all the chips and this is a good way of doing so. I would suggest before going up to the next level (you said $10 in the other thread) build your stack up to $200 as you don't wanna spend more than 5% of your bankroll on any one tournament. Doing so leads to concessions like well I can play this 1 twenty dollar tournament and it won't hurt me that badly, and thinking like that makes you go broke. Protect your money!

    For all you heads out there that don't wanna pay for a poker tournament, but wanna win real money, I have this for you.....

    Absolute Poker has daily freerolls around the clock with a fixed prize pool of $50 paying over the top 18 places. They also have a REBUY FREEROLL in which entry is free buy you may buy rebuys for 1 dollar. While rebuying in such a tournament with 4000 people is stupid, people do it anyway, building the pot to over $300 spread across 63 spots.

    This freeroll takes place at 15:15 eastern standard time you can sign up any time after 14:15 but the registration closes after 4000 enter. Good luck!

    I do it that way sometimes too. While this play (going all in 1st hand or early) diminishes your chances of cashing, it greatly increases your chances of winning the entire tournament if you double or triple up early. In a $$$$ sit n go such as this however there isn't that much to get by anyway. I probably would save that play for the bigger tournaments because if you do go broke early you don't have to waste 4 hours only to go broke on the bubble, you can join another tourny or go outside a play basketball or something...heh heh

    ok, just got home from the game, its about 3am and i am fairly drunk so the synopsis will be brief.

    basically i won the first hand of the game, comforatbly, gained a generous chip lead. however the next hand went all in on pocket pairs (the highest pair on the board pre river) and my opponent rivered a straight. i had a chip advantage over him, so i wasnt out, but my chip stack was pitiful. i played the rest of the game making the most of my free hands, and basically gettinng rags on the majority of hands. i wasnt the first player out, but generally played poorly.

    the game went for about 4.30 hours, and heads up at the end went for about 1.30 hours, with the two remaining players splitting the pot on three occassion.

    anyway im annoyed that i didnt win, maybe next time i wont be so agressive.
