never played in tx.
but the 1st time i played a live tourn i had to get used to few things.
basic stuff like: seats #s start at 1 and go counterclockwise from the dealer lolol etc etc lol
but the #1 problem i had with that 1st tourn was with the deaaaalers.
some were good, some were bad and some are outright rude.
its the rude 1s that if u get, try not to let em bug u or influence ur decisions.
like rush you, when ur not stalling or doing something silly etc. when ur playing. if u got a question, dont be afraid to ask. if u think the dealer is wrong or just not being a decent person lol, call their boss or casino rep. or whatever and get it straightened out.
find out how to get a head count of whos gonna be in the tourn. ur gonna need to know whick tables on ur poker floor are designated for cash games and for tourns, to keep track of whos left.
best of luck to u, hope u have fun,
