The way I see it, what the hell? Actually, I wuld have played the Warm-Up or Million. If this is just gonna be a one time thing buying into a tournament at this high of a stake, then take your chance

I'm not going to say either way, it's your choice. You're a good poker player and you've got a shot to win a lot more money. On the other hand, make sure you're ok with losing $200. It's real money, regardless of how you won it. It's your decision to make.

It's your money, but I'd say don't do it.

I've won similar sums in MTTs and they are necessary to sustain you through the crushing variance.

1k goes very quickly if you play even the $33s and above if you are not careful.

Play a few satellittes instead would be my advice and qualify for next week that way.

You worked hard for the cash don't blow it.

Well since according to the title you do want to play, I say go for it. As long as when your AA gets busted by 77 and you lose your $200 entry fee you don't go on tilt and hit the high limit tables or enter another high-stakes tourney.

If you're strong enough to only do it the once, go for it, otherwise don't... :D

but is it really going to be just a one time thing? slippery slope imo, poker is littered with donkament players who've hit big scores then donated it all back in the following few weeks.

Right choice IMO, if just for one try, its well worth it, plus a chance at another huge score

That is soooooo me :).

Okay, time's up and I've registered taking everything into account that you've all said. Rex is obv a rounded tourney grinder so advice is most relavent, but I decided I can take this one shot and withdraw less into the real world.

Ty all, keep posting opinions if you want as well.

First of all. Good luck in the tourney, I've played these a fair bit and the key is to stick to your game but adapt to the deeper stacks and better structure.

Forget about the money, it's done now so give it your best.


I'll happily talk to you about my bankroll management in relation to whatever funds you leave on line, but for now glglglglgl.
