Well here’s a question I just had to answering straight away:
I’ve played online for about 4 years and regular live games with groups of friends but never in a live tournament like this. The most i’ve won previously is about $500 in any one tournament
I was wondering if there is anybody out there who has played in games like this who could give me any tips? I can just picture myself sitting there shaking while looking at all the money, is drinking to calm myself down a bit a bad idea?
You might be nervous at first but I am sure after the first 15 minutes or so those feeling will subside.
I recommend you play like Hellmuth writes (please do not whine and cry). Play tight as first (only top 16 hands) and do not get involved in big early in the tournament.
