$50,000 GTD: I need a strategy.
Tournament is $50,000 GTD.
Payout: 1st $10,000
Top 20 at least $500
Top 60 at least $100
Top 400 at least $5
Sorry can't be bothered to write all payouts. Just rough idea.
Anyway all tickets were gained via points earned in July. HOWEVER starting chips are different depending on points earned (10,000 or 5,000 or 2,500).
There are about 500-600 entrants. Half of these are 10,000 chips. Average starting stack is 7,500 chips. I am only starting with 5,000 chips.
So I am asking for strategy considering I am immediately at a disadvantage. Does anyone think it is possible I can still make top 10 or win? I think the beginning will be the toughest with the difference in stack but after an hour or two 5,000 is tiny difference if I can survive that far. BLINDS are 8 minutes (quite fast?). Thanks guys.
