          Looking at how early you're going out in many of these I'm going to take a stab and say that your playing too wide a range of hands early in these. Tighten it up,be more position oriented when selecting hands to play and ALWAYS have a plan when you enter a pot for what you'll be wanting to do on the next turn of the cards,whether that turn be good,bad or indifferent as to your holdings.

          Patience,patience and more patience followed by merciless aggression when you have the nuts is the key in these. When you get to the bubble you should by then have identified who you can steal from,who you can value bet all the way to showdown when you have it and all that good stuff. If you get moved to a table late where you haven't seen most of the players nit it back up a little if you still have a stack where you can and try to get a feel for you new opponents.

          Remember,if you show tight early when you get to the bubble most of the players left will be the ones who are at least somewhat aware of what's going on. That will allow you to open up your range late,when the blinds and antes are WORTH THE RISK,so you can steal more as they'll have more respect for your raises.

          Good luck and hang in there.

            If you are too impatient to play the 90 mans, you should try the 45 mans, they are mostly alot shorter

            Just wait for AA, KK or maybe AK (i lost many times with AK so watch out) for the first 30-60 minutes and youll be fine, throw in a steal here or there but never defend a blind with shit cards or make a bluff, these tourneys costs so low that they will call anything you put up there.

                    I'm really impressed here M.Bisland umbup: Most guys would have given up by game 21. It just goes to show how just a few good results can make all the difference. Game 22 and games 31,32,33 have really brought you back up there! Stick with it.... play out the 100 and play your best each game! I've no doubt you'll crush this umbup:
