You can not control what cards are dealt to you or who is at the table.
What you can control is the pace of play.  Which is just as important as 
the cards you are dealt. We are all trying to get the most points possible.
If you watch most players, there is a pattern to their play.  Watching them
play for a while is probably the easiest way to learn their patterns.  What
is the rush!!! Adrenaline junkies is the only thing that comes from
fast play.  It takes most of us amateurs a little while to calculate our odds
and all the other things that go into giving us that edge.  SLOW DOWN!!!
Use the clock to your advantage.  I have not played that many tournaments
this month, but only one score that is negative so far.  If a person could play
3 or 4 tournaments a day, you could break 2000 points.  WATCH THE TUTORIALS
ON HERE, THEY HELP YOUR PLAY ( ONLY SOME OF THE BEST  PLAYERS
ON EARTH.  Oh yeah, while writing this I placed in the money with over 1200 players.
This Works. Hope it helps. Thanks for reading my blog.
