Stay Extra Cool When Playing Tournaments

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.
