hi guys,

I've played a scoop event last week and it went very horrible imo.
Played very very tight,my HUD hero stats was 8/8.Lost my patience and started playing very crazy spuwing poker.Then ended up with a 20-30 bb stack and I was busto after few lvls.
In other mtts,i play tight agg and that pays of most of the time,made deep runs etc.But I think I have not any experience with playing deepstack poker with a slow structure

Do you guys have any tips for playing the scoop,Im not talking about turbo's and other poker variants.Just the slow regular structure.

Here's the way I look at any deepstack, online or live.... patience, patience, patience. Playing too many hands, especially out of position will throw your chips away, so sit back, relax.

If u wanna necessery play some deeper and slow scoop eavents then register very late actually its very good that stars have latereg in everything, so u can go in very late those eavents where is 20 or 30 min levels and still u have a good stack playing 2 or 3 hours poker and no bingo allso in deep tourneys your hand range could be always little bit bigger than normally so u can always build your stack in patiance and take a small pots here and there.
