      Hi all,

      well hear's the storry. Iv been playing for about 3 years and had good up swings and the worst strikeouts down to bad bankroll management. I have the largest tournement i have entered coming up. Iv read all the relevant info from ps up to silver status. I play cash tables online with the odd tourni, one of which i blew all i had built( not folowing the 1% article on mtt) so i start again.

      Any way if someone out there can give me any pointers or information or anything u can that could help me win this title, i would be forever greatfull

      Hey mate,

      I know APAT pretty well. It's in Newcastle next right? Thats my home town :D

      I guess you are perhaps a little nervous? There is an amazing restaurant next to the casino called Nandos, if you prefer Italians, El Nino's is next door, get there early, enjoy the atmosphere, get a drink/nice food and calm down.

      The structure of APAT's is very good, you have lots of time to wait for hands and I'd recommend playing very tight early on and studying the players on your table, they don't allow professionals to play so there is doubt to be alot of "fishy" players, try and establish who they are and use this to your advantage later.

      If you lose a couple of big pots don't panic, the structure is great and you can go for a walk around the casino and get back in the mindframe.

      My friend, Maylis Boardman is the TV presenter there. Go find her (the blonde who stands out from a mile) tell her you're my friend and she'll look after you and maybe get you a TV interview which would be really cool, you could even give the pokerstrategy forums a shout out ;)

      Let me know your name (by PM if you like) I will be checking out the updates (my friend Richard Prew - Tighty) will be doing them and I'll make sure to follow your progress.
