      Hey, i'm going to be playing in one of the many $215 events over the WCOOP Period, i usually play at most $11 Sunday Storm/Dailys, and the Red spade Open a few weeks back. But i've qualified for an entry, so im going to give it a whirl.

      I'm not a bad tournaments player, but is there any particular Guides/videos Watch or read that would be a big benefit ?

      Or just general tips.

      i have the basics such as playing quite tight to start, try to get in cheap with pockets to stack someone etc, but anymore would be great ;)

      If you need to ask - you probably shouldn't be playing it.

      But anyhow I think playing good laggy poker is the best way to have success in these.

      I apologize, i thought this forum was for learning, guess i was wrong.

      But on a positive, i finished around 200th for $930 :) Lost a flip to wipe me out, AK v QQ :(

      It obviously is, I'm just saying if you've never played a $215 before then you're clearly not rolled for them and you don't have that mch experience in them, so you would probably be better taking the $ you won from the sat and adding it to the roll. Never said you couldn't play it, nor would you not do well in it.

      Grats btw

      turning them into 20x $11 tournaments is much better than playing way out of your roll and be scared money that's all amplifyd is trying to tell you.
