Winning SnGs with no cards?
(Mods, forgive me if there's a similar topic, I looked through a few pages of history and didn't see it, so delete if there is and point me in the right direction)
It seems that I can usually do well in SnGs and place ITM quite often. However, occasionally I'll have one of those tourneys where I see absolutely nothing remotely playable for the longest time. I'll see T5, 93, J6, 73, etc. until I'm down to 6xBB or so.
Then, I'm basically in All-in or Fold mode, finally catch something marginal (like AQ), and run into AK or KK or the like, and I'm out. I finish in 5th or so without playing any hands.
I have two questions: First, is this scenario avoidable? If not, how often do you think it happens? One out of every five tourneys?
