7. SET A GOAL AND SHUT IT DOWN.
This could be one of the most important secrets of the 10 and is a must follow if you are going to be successful in the PSO. To finish in the money is your ultimate goal. Sure finishing in the top 10 or even winning the tournament would be nice but lets face it, the additional points you obtain versus the time you need to spend grinding it down is not worth it. Get past the bubble, take a couple shots at doubling up but move on and focus on the next PSO tournament. Set a goal for a chip stack, say 10-12K and shut it down (sit out). That should be more than enough to finish in the money but always keep an eye on your stack as the tournament gets closer to the bubble. If you are a gambling degenerate like me this is easier said than done. Countless times I've tried to make a serious run, only to give back all the chips on a couple bad beats. Theres nothing more frusterating than finishing in 500th place when you could have easily sat out to the money and 30+ points. Stay tuned for more secrets!
