5% rule in Tournament with small stacks

  • mrsqmac (Beaumont, CA)

I was in a home tournament, trying to apply the 5% rule, which worked well early on, when the blinds were small. As the blinds increased, the blinds were 1,600 so in order to limp in, the effective stack size would have to be 32,000, but only the chip leader had that many chips. Other chip stacks were from 26,000 down. Do I just not limp in when the blinds get bigger in tournaments like this? Thanks in advance!
