your time will come , don't think it's that easy to win a mtt , many did not ever reaches the final table , so try to be patience at the final table and play a bit agressive when you are low in chips compaires with the others or play thight when you are chip leader or try to make a deal .
I haven't won a major tourny either. Mind u, I haven't registered in one for 6 months and counting. I don't have that much uninterupted time and my bankroll would suffer if I don't show results. As a result, I stick mostly to ring games, and plan on going back into SnG's shortly.

You dont have to win a major tourney to be a winning player. Most people don't 'win' outright but they keep cashing tourneys they enter. Better to be consistently cashing and making the money than just winning a tourney once in a life time (because it might be because you ran super hot). Those player that keep cashing have a good ROI%. But of course at the end you always aim to win a tourney

Google for ...........Sit N Go Pro handbook and start reading it it realy is a good system to try . also play very thight at the start only AA KK QQ AKs and play those hands very agresief.if you are in late position limp in with suited conectors and smaller pairs. in the midle of the tourny ( if you have a bit of a stack)you have to loosen up and play more like on ring games. realy have to look up Sit N Go pro it will help your game

Posted by pokersztar: I have never won a big tournament. A Lot of time i was at the final table but i never won those tournament. I play on Fulltilt and Pokerstars. ehat can i do ? learn more about poker ? try another room ? please help me
On the final table u have to play agressiv, play to win not try folding urself into higher places! I dunno if this is the case, but it was my leak in my early days, yesterday i played omaha mtt, i am a complete omaha donk, but simply by playing agressiv and not only my cards i did really well and got deep, a 2 outer did end my run else i was massive favourate to win it, but still satisfied to go deep.

For me in a final table, the key is to play like you play any other sng.. because, the problem is that people are scared when they are in a final table ("oh no, i dont wanna be busted now, i just limp with my tens" . You just raise when you have to.. and call when you have to. No other way, if you wait for people to bust alone you have a good chance to be busted. But if you play your poker, enough agressif with bowls when needed, youll hit some 1st 2nd or 3th place much time and this is more profitable !
