Hi

Would appreciate recommendations for the best videos to watch on playing a big stack in all stages, but particularly the mid stages, of a MTT tourny.  eg. you get a run of hands and find yourself in the chip leaders with a 120+ stack in the mid stages, still a long way from the money.  How should you play it?  What adjustments, how and who to target etc?

thanks in advance

cheers

FWIW I don’t think there really are dramatic strategic differences attached to many of the situations you seem to have in mind. When the entire table is 100BB deep, there are important differences from when everyone has 20-40BB. But if everyone has 40, then you double up and become chipleader, there’s not a lot that should change in terms of how you play going forwards.

thx for the response.

why I asked was that I have found myself in this situation a number of times, have heard how there is a skill, or some skill, to utilising and moving around a big stack, to dominate etc, but for myself what inevitably happened was that the chips seemed to just fritter away until again i was back in familiar territory (40 to 20 bb).  Any tips/comment on why this might be happening and what leaks to look out for?

any of the Bigdog hand history reviews and AZNallin007 videos are good for the sort of thing you are looking for – Big stack Boss mode – but these guys are v skillfull post flop
