This is a discussion on Won a $250 tournament ticket within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; I won a $ 250 tournament ticket at 888 Poker for the XL spring 500,000 Main event.
I‘m so nervös for the tournament. Wish me good
Best wishes, there is no need to be nervous about it!! You cannot lose anything, even if you lose.
You are nervous because you don't know what to expect in such a big tournament... but realize, all tournaments are the same, there's no difference between a 2 dollar tourney and a 250 dollar tourney, of course the average skill level of the players might be SLIGHTLY higher in a 250, but its not gonna be a totally different game. It's still just poker, it's the same game and that's what you have to constantly keep in mind.
I think after you play in the tournament for a short while, you will realize these fact and that will allow you to calm down and play your best game... I rarely get the opportunity to take big shots like this, and when I do, it never seems to work out well... but that's okay! Embrace it, use it as a learning experience if nothing else... and good luck to you!!

Congratulations, play the same way you played the other tournament and you will probably have a great chance of doing well, and if the prize doesn’t come in this tournament, maybe come next, good luck.
Wow great job. I was happy to have won a $22 scoop ticket. It sounds like thi will be out of your normal play range. Best advice is to play your normal game and not be too passive or the regs will eat you. There will probably be other players who won a ticket as well and hopefully you will have a table with some of these. I wish you the best and hope you cash high (I was able to finish 133/6600 on my ticket and was ecstatic about it .. I hope you go further!
Congratulations and good luck in the tournament but as some have already said before, don't worry too much because it is such an expensive tournament it is and remains poker so play your game and forget how expensive it was.
Just play your game and don't be impressed by the buyin level. everyone gets 2 cards and everyone has the same chance to win. try to stay calm and wait for the right cards to play. And don't let the buyin level make you insecure. I wish you good luck and good hands
