i hope my luck improves this week, im just card dead in nearly every tournament i enter, couldnt win a flip if my life depended on it. i find myself very short stacked the whole time, i play less than 20% of hands, and have to fold,and eventually my stack is crippled,i feel you need to get lucky early in these tourneys to do well, when i pick up a few hands early on, i go on to do well in those tourneys. would like to see the time increased to 15 minutes per level and a starting stack of 2k, i think this would make for a much better tounament for every one.
