Need some advice for tomorrows 200K
After playing the 210FPP satellite tourney and placing I've decided to have a go at the 200K game, main reason is it's on Monday morning here and tomorrow is a day off for me, first one is ages
I usually play $3-$5 tourneys ranging from 1000-2500 players so big fields won't be anything new, but this game seems to attract over 22,000 people. My feeling is this may just be a lottery game. Has anyone here ever played it?
What advice would you give for such a large field. I approach 1000+ games pretty textbook. Tight as hell for the first hour, then play according to my chip stack. Short stack, super tight and wait for a hand to try and double up. Mid-High stack playing more position, but still pretty tight. I suspect if the field is over 20,000 then around half will be gone by the first break as that's what usually happens in anyone large game at smaller limits.
Also the blind structure goes up every 10 minutes as opposed to 15 which is what I'm used to, so I may have to loosen my approach a little.
My main goal is to get ITM, and from there play to a FT which would be a massive accomplishment.
If anyone here has ever played it I'd love to hear your feedback/suggestions with how to deal with this game tomorrow. Should I play well, I'll be putting a rail request tomorrow, after the money of course.
Thanks in advance
