Winning in poker tournaments requires understanding several key fundamental principles. First of all, you must survive against the newbies before you get to play the “real” tournament. Then you have to make astute observations and notice play tendencies to give you an edge. Play a tight and aggressive style for the best chance to win, while being able to switch your tactic to a looser and even more aggressive style late game.

Let’s say for example you have a hand like 7s6c on the button. The blinds are 20/40 and your stack is 1,450 having not yet played a hand.

You all see this flop of 8s 9s 2d.

Denny: Well, we weren’t exactly little kids at that point. Molly, Nate and I were fourteen. Lucy was twelve. Molly had appointed herslef Lucy’s protector, but Nate was getting to be a bit of a distraction around then, if you know what I mean.

The objective early is to not get knocked out. The first few blind raises of a tournament can be something of a hurricane. Newbies will go all in on hands they have no business being in. It’s your job to stay out of their way.
A good rule of thumb is that when your stack gets to less than 15x the SB + BB, it’s time to loosen up. If your stack gets to less than 10x the SB + BB, loosen up a lot and get a lot more aggressive.
