Just condition yourself for tomorrow.

Have to adjust from a fast pace hyper/turbo limited stack online poker to a deep stack very slow pace live poker.

Have sex, relax, play some videogames (not poker), sports, and sleep well.
It won't be easy for you, you just opened a topic saying you have no profit in regular mtts and now you are playing even a slower one.

So just have patience and think about your size bets when you are playing, its not like turbos or hyper when you bet to induce shove or fold, you gotta work value.

Enough said, i wish very good luck and have a great time! hope you win it, man... cheers

Wow, what can you say to that? LOL!!!

So at OFC Sue, did you run out to Wahlgreens to pick some up for the tournaments or were you still recovering from that first night at Golddiggers? :D

Play Tight Aggressive

Make sure to open in position with premium hands. You should really come up wth a list of what hands you will open with from MP1 2 3 4 5 6 Hijack Cutoff button SB BB and stick to those and play them aggressive post flop by Cbetting or Delayed Cbetting. Also medium pairs try to get in to the pot preflop CHEAP and if you bink your set ALWAYS LEAD OUT it is the strongest play in the game no one will put you on a set if you lead out.

Tommorow i have a 1.1k live tournment.. i havent played live in over a year and this is way above the buy ins i should be playing. So i possibly could be playing scared money.. its a deep stack event and im use to turbos and hypers online. So if you where me, what do you think is the best way to prepare myself within 24 hoours?.. should i practice some deep stacks? should i just relax and not worry about poker? should i meditate? should i go and practice live play at the casino? What would be the best way to get me ready?:eating:

If I were you I try just to relax and don't think too much in that tournament.
As a deep stacks tournament you will have to be patiente and wait for good hands because you will have time and chips for it.

Don't think in poker and act normal! You have no reasons to play scared poker! Play what you know and be confident in your skills.

I wish you all the good luck in the world!!!

I agree with most of the above. Clear your mind with any negative thoughts. Patience is a must. Just play poker.

I would do nothing poker related on the day before - I would get some exercise and fresh air, maybe get a massage, see a movie or go out to dinner and try to get a good night's rest.

If you have any way of knowing how some of your oppents normaly play, study that, have you ever played ageinst anyone in the torney before are they some of them friends? When i play live I try to remeber all the regulars play and deminor, does someone tilt easy, is someone super passive.. thats the plus to playing live, you get to study people closer than online. Besides that just rest and stay calm, you cant improve any skill in 24hours but you can study your oppistions skills

i would try to watch some training videos, and live is much different so really try to pay attention to the players, i would also think about using some exploitive bet sizing, ie bet small when you can and bet bigger when you think you can get away with it

hi,
i'd start drinking wine about 2hrs before and relax into the game,
if ya stressed you will make bad decisions,
but remember don't get too relaxed and fall asleep :)
:eek:

you can just try to get pleasure from the game and not think about the result. some can only dream of such a tournament. but a bad experience is the same experience)
