It was free to play this right? So,,,don't be nervous,,,you have nothing to lose,and everything to gain.$$$ ;) Player's who have $530 to play don't play stupidly,meaning you can take chances that they would't,,so you have an advantage here,,,use it. :deal:

3 days tournament, Start in the next Sunday
My advice in addition to training for such tournaments is to get a good night's sleep.Focus only on the tournament-remove all unnecessary problems from your mind or forget about them for a while.Ask your friends and family not to disturb you.get energized before the competition.Good luck-try to get into ITM.

Hi Guys,
Any advice for my first time 1.5M Tournament ?

I win the 530$ SCOOP Ticket from Freeroll, i end up 10/24k.


I went through this last year at Stadium Series, i won an 200$ ticket from the twitch freeroll
I advise you not to go for the main event, but go for the PKO 500K GTD
In the main event the field is bigger and harder = more variance and less chances to get ITM
In the bounty there are more recreational players and you have more chances to knockout someone = massive profit from 0$ investment (so even if you get busted in a cooler or something like that you still get for some bounties)
+ more chances to get ITM --> in the PKO there are more recreational players and they play looser
Congratulations for the freeroll and GL!

I was a micro MTT player, so i played very tight but still won 3 bounties playing strong hands (you see a lot of people desperate so double up so they can play for the bounties)

Are you saying...
If he plays stupidly he'll have an advantage? This might actually be true... I watched a really terrible player place high this year in the SCOOP $10k MainEvent. (they'd won a ticket via $109 satty). Their play was just so bad that it actually made it much more difficult for others to put them on a range. And because pretty much all of their plays were very bad, it made it difficult for the pros & hi rollers to figure out how they were thinking (were they even thinking?)

My advice is... I don't have any. There's nothing I can tell you that would help change how you might choose to play and really there's not even enough time if you were to hire on a coach & train intensely for it.
IF I did think I had some advice of merit, it'd be for you to play a full schedule of MTT's for the next 10days, putting in LOTS & LOTS of play (ie. 300+ MTT's in the next 10days). Then take a couple of days off before the big one and be sure you're well-rested (Oops.. that's two things)

Wow. Way to go. Just do the same in the $530 tournament and you’ll have a very nice cash. I managed to score a $22 ticket and ended up 133/6600 for a nice cash (at least for me). I basically played the same as I usually do in my $1-2 tournaments and forgot about the stakes. After the first hour or so, I didn’t even think about the fact I was playing out of my comfort zone. I avoided trying to make any fancy plays as I knew the caliber of players was much higher and wouldn’t fall for anything. So I guess my advice is to just play your normal style and have fun.

It's good. I will have a satellite at 55 for 2.20 where I went with a good stack. I will try a satellite for your tournament as well. The biggest one I had for 215 where I got thanks to this site. 530 is a chance to make yourself a ba nkrol.

Thanks a lot for your time, i think he meant to play without fear because i have a reason that i don't pay for the ticket! So i can play with less stress.

And yes i am playing already for training to not get angry or tilted! one day be for i'll go for fishing :p

Do not fall out with AA against 45s. Especially not that you had 65+ blinds! I'm so angry ....
(about 500 pays and I became 1000th,but obviously I could have comfortably cashed in.)
