The best Texas Hold'em tournament players regard their chips with value. Some players who are beginning in a tournament don’t place enough value on their chips. Once you are out of chips you are done as in most tournaments you can’t rebuy. You don’t always have to play tight but you do need to be playing hands where you have a good chance of winning. Playing hands in which your hand is dominated, or ones that you have limited outs is a way to lose chips quickly. Some players really don’t understand the value of chips in a tournament but the winning tournament players have a very good idea of how to use their chips to their best advantage.

Fighting for Chips
The best tournament players know how to fight for chips. They play their button aggressively and they don’t give up their blinds easily. As the field gets smaller, the blinds come around more often. Good tournament players attack the blinds and pick up that free money. The reason that picking up the blinds is important is that the blinds can pay for your upcoming round and give you a free round. Playing aggressively in a tournament becomes critical in the later rounds when the blinds get bigger. It is late in the tournament when good players take advantage of weak players who are just looking to make the money.

The good tournament players know that winning is important. They are not going to be hanging on just to make the money. If you want to win money by playing tournaments then you have to get some top finishes. Just making the money is not going to get it done because more often than not you won’t make the money. Good tournament players understand this and will be aggressive in going for the win. Losing players will just try and make the money. You must have the goal of winning a tournament if you expect to be a winning player.
