First big £1000 buy in live tourney. Advice please
Hi guys.. Some great news I came in the top 12 of a live satellite tourney the other week and the prize was an entry into the Walsall leg of the UK poker tour which is a £1000 buy in event. I've been told it will have over 300 runners and is split over two days then the remainder play out the final day this forthcoming Saturday. The initial chips are 15000 and the blinds start at 25-50 and go up every hour, there is a running ante after the fourth level. Now I have asked some of my mates and one of them said that whatever I do, do not commit all of my chips early on i.e. all in even with AA, the other said keep 75% of your chips back and just play with the remainding 25% for the first day. I think basically they are saying keep alive at all costs. The winner will get over £100,000 I'm playing well at present and I want to go far so any good advice from players who have experience at this level will really help. Thanks the sniper...
