20-minute Levels -> Differences from Turbos?
I used to primarily play MTTs, but have since moved to primarily cash games. However I played in a $1.10 satellite tourney that allowed me to win an $11 tournament entry coupon on BCP.
I am planning on playing the Daily Deepstack Freezeout ($1,250 GTD., starting any minute, lol ) . It features 20-minute blinds levels that go up like this.
40, 60, 80, 120, 160, 200, 250, 300, 400, 500, 600, 800, 1k, 1.2k, 1.5k, 2k, 2.5k, 3k, 4k, 5k, 6k, 8k, 10k, 12k, 15k, 20k, 25k, 30k
Small blind is always half the big blind, and an ante worth 10% of the big blind begins in the 7th level.
I'm almost completely used to 5-minute and 7-minute blind levels with a little bit of experience in 10-minute structures. How should my strategy be different in this tournament? The only main thing I'm thinking about is playing tighter for longer, and exploiting people who are playing wide ranges in the opening stages of the tournament. I'm expecting it to play more like a cash game for longer (5k starting stacks) as well so I hope this may play to my advantage somewhat.
Any advice/experiences would be helpful (and I'll update my progress here too)
