Large amount of players will cash, and they will drop like flies. The field is so big and buyin is so low, there will be so many fish. Try to take advantage during the early stages, you should be able to spot the fish at your table really easily in the beginning stages. Look for them and pounce!

I never played a WSOP event. But i do play a lot of tournaments some of those with a large buy-in also. What i've learned on the last few months, is that on a regular or turbo MTTs, we nedd to adapt our strategy on the price of the blinds. On the earlier stages, we nedd to secure our hands and money. So we need to play only with premium hands. Doing that we minimize ours risks to get out soon. Than, when the blind begins to get higher, the players will start to get hungry for chips, so, they will play with a large range of cards, and so do you. But you need to wait good hands beyond the premium hands, like AJ, JJ, KQ even KJ. The villain will open with Ax, Kx, Qx, even 10x. In that moment of the tounament the odds will be in your side and only a bad beat can make you loose. Sorry about my writing, i'm still learning english
