#5 – Playing Too Many Hands in Early Stages: Early in tournaments you really don’t want to be three-betting light really at all, especially at the lower stakes because you don’t want to end up in a coin-flip situation when you’re going to have such better opportunities with premium hands.
#4 – Playing Too Passively as the Short Stack: A lot of the time when you’re the short stack you want to take some risks because you’re just never going to find that good of a spot and if you don’t you’re just going to blind out of the tournament. Once you get to eight or ten big blinds you start shoving or folding always instead of limping or raising and then folding.
#3 – Taking Unnecessary Risks as the Medium Stack: When you’re the medium stack your goal is to try to bust the shortstacks, not get into a war with the big stack. As the second-biggest stack you have a lot of equity in the tournament and you don’t gain nearly enough to make it worth the risk.
#2 – Not Putting On Enough Pressure as the Big Stack:
Your goal as the chip leader is to leverage your stack by shoving into your opponents a lot because they can’t call with very many hands and you can build your stack without much risk.
#1 – Playing Stakes You Can’t Beat:
I recommend absolutely crushing a stake before trying to move up. It’s really important to be cognizant of what level you can beat. Don’t let your ego get in the way, play a stake you can beat.
