I'm in, a real long shot but for a dollar, why not?? It would be really great to see someone from PSO take this down.

A few pieces of advice for PSOers playing in this thing:

-Tend to play fast, not tight. The structure is fast as you might expect to run a tourney with 150K players. It's a turbo with a starting stack of 2K. That will be the big blind in less than 2 hours of play. If you're just folding waiting for premium starting hands, you'll be short stacked relatively quickly. If you plan to start with a snug strategy, review the structure so you're prepared to open it up if the big hands don't come, before you get too short. Don't be afraid to gamble, even early. If you are, you have no shot to win this thing.

-Gamble doesn't mean stupid though, try to take intelligent gambles. Identify quickly who the folders and tight players are, and put the heat on them... finding spots to pick up chips without premium hands will be critical. Try and be the aggressor with fold equity whenever possible, and when you do pick up a premium hand, be willing to play a big pot with it, even on level 1 (yes the stacks are deep on level 1, 100 bb's, but as you review the structure you will see that won't last long).

-It's a $1 tourney with a quarter of a million dollar prize pool... let's face it, there will be more non-folders than folders early on. If you think you've seen some bad play in the skill leagues, buckle your seat belt. The callers you should punish for value when you think you have the best hand, period. I would generally not concern myself much with pot control in this fast a structure, I would try to extract maximum value when ever I thought I had the best hand and would never be afraid to go for it with good equity.

-Don't be afraid to bust out, even on hand #1. I guarantee you, whoever wins this event will have taken a great many chances along the way, and will have all the chips in with the worst of it multiple times. Being all in with the worst hand isn't necessarily a bad thing, as long as you were making a good poker play (3b resteal shoving over a "folder", calling a loose openers shove with a hand that plays well against their range, etc). This is what I mean by trying to make intelligent gambles... you'll have to make many to run deep in this deal, the smarter you choose these spots the more of an edge you'll have over your weaker, less thinking opponents.

-If you think a spot is close, all else being equal, lean towards going with it. "Waiting for a better spot" is for slower structures generally, in this thing that elusive "better spot" isn't likely to come before you're blinded off or completely crippled from the rapidly escalating blinds.

GL PSO'ers. Remember, you shouldn't be playing this to try and squeak into a $4 min-cash. First place is 50K. Although the structure is really fast and it will be a mine field, this tourney offers a tremendous value to the thinking player and at a bargain price... take advantage of it.

I would like to take a couple minutes to thank Dave for this great advice post, I know I will be putting to good use, think mixing it up may be a good alternative for what I do, which is pretty tight, but still working on agressive, will have to be willing to open up, like the man says....sorry for the flash, but you have to admit it was funny...lol

Thx again for the advice

Lets see some PSOers kicking asses and taking out pros for the bounties. looking forward to some good reports, 1 being my own...lol
