So yesterday i won a ticket to $25 000 gtd mtt.
Havent played in bigger then $2k gtd before, so this one is big enough for me.
What exactly is the skill jump from 2k to 25k mtt?
Appreciate any advices.

Just play your game and not worry too much about the stakes. If you start playing scared you won’t last long. What is the buy in? The guarantee is much higher but that could just mean they expect a large number on entries and not necessarily a much higher buy in- eg may only be a $10 buy in vs say a $2 buy in that you normally play. This would not be a huge jump in skill set. So best advice...just play the way you normally play and hope the cards fall well for you. Best of luck.

How much higher is the buy in than usual?The guaranteed prize thus means nothing in itself beyond that many more will play in the tournament. But if the entry fee is similar to the usual, then the game too.

Thank you people, yeah i didn't notice the buy in is really low for this on - $6.
I assume there would be like ten thousand players.
But with the prize pool this big i think a lot of players from higher limits would join the party too. Well gl to me :)

I wouldn't change a lot about the style of play. At the start of a tournament, the stacks are large in relation to the blinds. So you can play according to the big stack strategy. Wait for good hands and play aggressively. You should also pay attention to your position. In late position you can play a larger hand range than in early position. Do c-bets when it is appropriate. You shouldn't have more than two opponents and the flop shouldn't be too draw-heavy. Example of a bad flop for a c-bet: JT8s. Many players hit something in this flop. Your goal in a c-bet is for all of your opponents to fold. In addition, you can hardly represent a strong hand. Example of a good flop for a c-bet: A84r. You can represent a top pair aces. Do resteals and steal blinds in the middle stages of the tournament. Blind stealing means when you are in late position (CU, BU) and no one has raised or called in front of you, you attack the blinds with a raise. But you should at least have broadways, suited connectors or pocket pairs. There is always the risk that an opponent will call. You can do resteals with AJ +, KQ or 88+. That means if your opponent raises you go all in and steal the dead money. You should pay attention to the position in which your opponent raised. If he has raised in an early position, you need AQ + or JJ + to justify a resteal.

Thanks man. Appreciate that. Well im prety familiar with those advices really. But i really think there would be plenty of strong players from higher limits too. Cause of big prize pool and overall lower skill range cause of small buy-in.

do not get attached to the prize, play well, as if you were not going to lose anything, the only thing you have to think about is winning.

Why did you decide that playing with a 2K prize is so much different from a tournament with a 25K prize? I played in a 200K tournament and did not see a big difference in the progress of the game. The tactics are the same and you shouldn't be nervous. Otherwise it will interfere with you. Play your old tactics. In every tournament, regardless of the entry money, there are good and bad players. You won't find super players there.

Just play your best. Be careful in the beginning, there a lot of crazy maniacs in this kind of tournament shoving all the time, so you need to know exactly what you are doing before a big raise.
Good luck, hope you win. :)

With so little money input, this is to be expected. But you should not relax because of this.

i wouldn't say its to big for you its just that you apply what you have learnt over the course of time you have been on card chat, poker is a combination of skills if you're missing one most likely you wont make it to the final table
