it took me forever to realize this, but i found for it to work better to go all-in with a hand like aa or kk

I never lose with AA when it means something late in a tournament. However, you get it early, esp in a freeroll tournament and you move in. Someone is bound to call and double you up if they don't get lucky. Reminds me of last night, I had 99 vs. 4 2 and they hit a straight.

i find that alot of orons  join the games to just go all in and try to get lucky..if you can wait it out for 20 mins over half the people is gone and by this time  the poel who is left have some time invested in this game they will half way play smart

yeah its tough in the first 30 min or so of a freeroll...

you have the all in donkeys....then you have the ultra agressive....

give it some time for these people to get knocked out, then you can play a little more with these hands to get some more chips

high pocket pairs are the greatest. when i try to slow play these hands i usaully end up losing. they usually end up catching something to overpower you and its hard to back down with high PP's. i never slow play these cards anymore. suffered too many loses slow playing. it's all in. if nobody calls it kinda sucks, but you at least get the blinds and antes. some people will nag at you if its the first hand in a tourney when you go all in. who cares? and i never show would people drop out of the hand. like to keep those secrets. gl.

every time I limp in with pocket aces, I lose!!!!! It never fails.......lol
Now if I have them I just go all in, it's much better. And even better after the first 30 minutes or so, because all the people that are not REALLY interested in playing are knocked out.

Yes Just pushing your chips in with AA or KK is the easy way to play the hand but your more than likely not going to get called unless your in a freeroll and i try to maximize the value of my hand in real money tourneys so just stick to whatever you like i guess
