So, you have enough chips to make it in the money for a tournament.  Do you still play or you wait till the bubble pops?

Personally, I prefer to just play two cards in this situation, AA and KK.  So inessence, I sit out.  When I am in the money I then can focus on getting to the final table.  Sometimes, I make my chips blind away to 10BB to get as deep as possible then build back my stack.

 

I find making my stack blind away does two things:

1. It takes me deeper into the money.

2. My short stack will more likely see action.  No one is going to call  my all-ins with 100BB[If you were reading my blog before I only play all-ins].
