This is a discussion on Live tournament within the online poker forums, in the Live Poker section; how you will behave if you get to the same table with D.Negreanu, N.Bodziakouski,Ph. Ivy and many other players?
Probably a part of me would be excited: like meeting a celebrity. Of course I wouldn't openly show it and I'll try to play some tough poker.
Also, I am probably a bigger threat to the pro than most may believe and it isn't because I am so good at poker (I'd be a pro too if I was at their level), it is because:
- they probably know nothing about me or my play style, but I know theirs.
- one sitting at the table is a very small sample and I could easily get luckier than them, so there is no reason to fear them completely out playing me (unless I'm super obvious/exploitable).
In summary, I'd probably still play my normal game: but my "A game" and enjoy the moment.

I definitely remember the first time I sat down with Vanesa Selbst and knowing how aggressive she is, I simply wanted to bluff her in a huge pot.
When I had a chance, I pulled the trigger and fired all streets after raising her on the flop until after tanking for quite some time she said I think you got me and called
From that time, I just try to stick with my standard play.
