Hi, folks, I am still doing freebe tournaments, and often get to under the last 100, but by then a few folk have 500,000 (or more) and I may be struggling with under 50,000 (and then they razz me with a 50,000 stake).  How do they do it, i.e. make so much at the beginning of the tourney?  And, importantly, how do I get to the last table - any secrets out there - I am a pretty good player (most of the time).  The problem is, if I don't go in for the higher stakes at the end, in which case I inevitably get thoroughly razzed, then I lose my money almost as quickly because of the size of the blinds.

Thanks for any help on hand,
