Because of the nature of tournaments and the escalating betting limits, your bankroll is the key to your ability to win. If you become short-stacked, try to stay calm and play as tight as possible. Only bet on high-ranking pairs (the Fish 40), and only continue playing the hand if the flop has improved your hand.
Example: You are dealt Q, Q as your hole cards.
If some one bets I would fold the hand immediately.
Why? Because you have not built on your pair and the betting is going to get expensive.
