re: Poker & Anyone Played In The $250,000 Guarantee?
If you won a CC private game with an added ticket, then you have the skills that can win the whole shebang.......Point there is to not doubt yourself.
It would not be a horrible thing if you showed up somewhat late for the game, as the first few orbits will be as whacky as a freeroll. Don't do stupid stuff.
Be patient. Opportunities will present themselves. Be observant, if you have a tracker, use it. You will probably not have numbers on most of those players, so set your tracker/HUD to display session stats, or even level stats.
Instead of making silly moves early, take notes on the silly moves others are making. Then remember to read those notes in situations against those players BEFORE you make a decision.
Don't worry about your stack size. Don't compare your stack size to others at your table. You will do that naturally later in the game. Don't fixate on it.
BE PREPARED FOR A VERY LONG GAME!... If you want to cash in this game you will need to spend at least 4 hours to get to the money (not sure how the structure is layed out). To win it could take 12 + hours.
