Hi Whu,

The question you have asked is so broad and wide ranging that it is very difficult to answer and it demonstrates a worrying trend that a lot of players display: give me some guidelines to follow and that is a recipe for success.

It simply does not work like that. Off course poker is a situational game but there is never a one suit fits all solution and what you have to learn and develop are situational judgement skills. No one here can teach you that, you have to learn it for yourself, you have to think for yourself! All the really good poker players make decisions on the spot.

All I can suggest for the game today are some hints:

Be patient, don't play too many marginal hands, identify and classify the style of each opponent at the table, take advantage and exploit these styles (remember too that the really good players will change and adapt their style according to the table dynamic), be disciplined, be prepared to fold big hands when beat. Try and maintain an average or better bankroll in the first hour but don't play stupid hands just because your bankroll is not growing. At some point you will have to take risks, especially if you get close to 10BB, your judgement and table image as well as some luck will dictate, whether you will get further and you will need to win some races to build your stack.

As the tournament progresses your observation and judgement skills become even more important. If you are still in at this stage your first goal is to get to the money, unlike an SnG however I do not favour surviving to the bubble, I personally want to accumulate chips to make a final table run if I am in that situation. I am willing to forgo a small cash to make a bigger cash but that is just my opinion. If you get to the final table it should not play much different than a normal SnG but what do I know since I have never got to one outside of freerolls, but then again this is a freeroll as well.

I do not know if you followed my earlier advice on going through the course but I will post it up and hope that you go through it before the tourney starts.

Remember even if you do everything right, you can still lose, you need to win a lot of races and you need a bit of luck.

So the best of luck to you.

Cheers,

TC

With 7000+ entrants and 15 minute blind levels, patience is your best asset. Wait for good hands, good situations and opponents mistakes to make a move. This will get you into the money if you get any kind of decent cards. Making the final table is tougher. You have to take more risks, hope your opponents make ther mistakes in the big pots, and generally play a higher level of poker.

play these similar to how you'd play a PSO league game. Don't take chances. When you get a premium hand, let someone double you... when you get something marginal, muck it.

I would say questionable hand selection played it's part here, if there was a raise I am mucking KQx even on the button.

Nothing wrong with the post flop play though, but runner runner does happen!

Cheers,
