  1. Even though i make a lot less than these guys i disagree a bit, i mean if its 10 left and youre second and have a chance of playing with the big stack for a chance of getting a massive chip lead and the maybe be able to dominate the final table you should take it right??

  2. @guitalemao Well im winning more than most smallstakes players this year so its working… just hard to put in the hours to reach high stakes with school and all.

  3. @zaiivonhest yes , if chris moneymaker won the main event for millions of dollars , i presume any fish can random run good in one 4k mtt and thats all.
    man , just kidding, but go study icm before talking …

  4. Thank you Captain Obvious — just another stupid poker 'strategy' to overly complicate the obvious.  Here's a simple way to understand ICM instead of 'assigning value to your chips' — PROTECT THE CHIPS YOU'VE ALREADY WON. It's as important as winning more chips. Let the other players take unnecessary risks to knock out players – you win either way.  The end. That's all you need to know.
