It's very hard to give you any advice without seeing you play a number of tourneys to see how you do things abhiluv,...but if your problem is just falling short of the bubble all the time, it could be one of two things:

You are playing excessively tight...or

You are playing too many crappy hands...

...but it sounds more like playing too tight if the consistency is 'just' falling short all the time... Thumbs Up

I suggest eating more murgh korma with basmati and naan.... Big Smile

I guess you play some bad hands in that stage of the tournament that makes you lose your chips...

Another problem could be indeed what demo said, you play too tight and in that part of the mtt the result is basically the same.

Hi Abhiluv,

Good topic , as I struggled with this myself and i think many more people do.
There are a lot of guides on the internet, conceirning this topic and most of them suggest U to play really aggressive when U get near the price money. Put pressure on ur opponents, as they all want their share of the money. None of them want to be the bubble, so use that in ur advantage. Be carefull with players with more stack then yours. Call nothing , but raise or fold and try to decide hands before the flop.

If U want more info, just google bubble play guide and U will see diffrent guides written by wellknown pro's There is also a class in Pokerstars pokerschool on the subject ( with wich U can even win a ticket after taking the quizz)

Wish U the best of Luck

It all depends on your starting hand at or near the bubble and your chip stack and how many big blinds you have left at or near the bubble my advice is too play good tight aggressive poker and don't go all in with any 2 face cards unless you are really ST

If you have the chips to make it to the money, try not to be involved in too many hands
when you are getting close to the money.
When you are in you can start playing more aggressive.
