As I know it your post has to be long enough, although no one can or wants to tell you how long. Maybe you should just check after every post if you got the points. So you may find out how long it needs to be.

As a new player I have won a tourney bankroll mob once and got over confident and started playing MTT at a $1 losing my bankroll usually near bubble trying to double for the next Bubble and getting by the all ins before flop is crazy sometimes I can see the table now I can say all I got to add is keep it tight after bubble. Have good games

Posted by raymonvdhaak: i hate it when tourney start and you have aa you go all in and the whole table goes all in
offcource i lost
ok its better lose aa than with 23 then you know you had a good hand
i like to play more hands it will not say that you cant play hands and that u lose more.
what i dont like is the to slow people that really need al the time to think to fold
Hi man, I guess that I am one of these people you dont like at all, because I am very often taking my time, especially when a tournament is coming closer to the bubble. But I dont do it to think about my move I am simply doing it for time.

I guess the biggest mistake people make whe they first start to play poker is that they don't really understand it. They start is a a game and then try and develop an understanding as they go along, without any real investment of time in learning the intricacies and niceties of the game.

Playing to Survive : ---------------------- One of the common mistake I see all too often is when players try to survive and survive the bubble or move up in the money. This isn’t always an incorrect strategy (there are scenarios where it’s correct to play to survive), but for the most part if you have a healthy chip-stack, you should be playing to win and not to survive. Think of survival mode in a poker tournament like the Prevent Defense in Football: Not only doesn’t it work, but it can get you into some bad short-term habits, and give your opponents the confidence they need to play their best game. Before you know it, your survival mode strategy can have you playing desperately, as you are no longer able to fold your way to the money and have to start putting what is left of your chips in the middle. As a poker player,i try to adjust my play when following " Playing to Survive " mode according to situation and i suggest the same to my fellow poker beginner players...
