Playing on the bubble
Playing tournament poker on the bubble isn’t always easy. As the big stack, you want to keep the pressure on your opponents without losing many of your chips in the process. As a small stack, you want to make the money, but when a good spot to double up comes along, it’s hard to pass it up.
Thankfully, PokerStars School is on hand to help you work on your bubble play.
