    Very important. Lack of confidence can cause you to make bad judgement calls

    Confidence in that your going to win? Probably very litte. Confidence that I'm making the best decisions at the right times. A whole lot.

    It can make or break you're tournament. When you're confident, it just feels like everything's going y our way.

    Essential

    However confidence is often confused with arrogance (aka Phil Helmuth is a good example)

    It is a good player who is confident his pair of Aces on a low non paired rainbow board is doing well but still possibly weak to 2 pair
    It is a bad player who is arrogant into thinking that the same situation, nothing has him beat

    Confident players with the right skill can get away from a poor drawing hand or a made but weaker hand will go far in a tornament
    Arrogant players will often regardless of skill, make mistakes that depending on the situation will cost them a good size of chips or knock them out

    If you can be both types of players, this makes you a force and you will win multi million $$$ events however even the pros who can play like this Sami Faha is a good example need to be a lot more Confident than arrogant.

    Don't forget, luck balances outs more or less down the line
    Bad moves and poor judgement will get you possibly a few extra pots but you will lose a great deal more

    I think confidence is probably more important in live tourneys then in online tournaments.

    Without any confidence, you are not playing. you are not active. Waiting for a AK or AA is pointless as the chances are low. look at your position on the table and make the right decision. Confidence will play it's part.
