BUY-IN: $120+$9 | STARTING CHIPSTACK: 5000 | BLINDS: 12MINS PER LEVEL
This will be the first time I'm playing this deep and slow a structure. Obviously there will be a lot of room to maneuver post flop, this could be both a blessing and a curse. I thinks it will be important to resists the temptation to mix it up by seeing a lot of flops early. Tight is right! Practice patience.
This will also be a really long tournament, i anticipate at least 8 hours given the structure. In addition the field will be littered with high stake pros. I will make an effort to identify these players and know who to be vary of. There will also be a lot of player like myself, who are just taking shots after winning seats via the numerous satellites that have been running. These are the people i need to identify and get chips from.
Whatever happens i will enjoy and hopefully learn from the experience. I don't know how deep i will go, but i will try to play each hand the best i know how and let the chips fall where they may. Tomorrow i will work out, do 15 minutes of meditation and then warm up for the tournament by reviewing some hand histories on PXF.
