      as u clearly will be outskilled here the obvious thing here to do would be to play only premium hands and super agressive... better blind out and get to the point u have a pushing stack to abuse table than just loose your chips when getting outplayd postflop :)

      well still a long way to go
      but the registered players thus far are not much better than me
      infact i might be but who knows who's gonna buy in
      i never invested a cent to get there won like 4 tourneys i think maybe 3
      but seems like the others may hv too

      Basically you shouldn't play a tournament where you can't affort rebuys and/or addons. Your chances will be quite low since you have a big disadvantage due to your smaller stack.

      At the same time it doesn't make sense to play satellites to rebuy events where you wouldn't be able to take rebuys since the rebuys are not included if you win a seat.

      Since you already registered you should follow vuciitis tips and hope for the best.

      Regards,

      A word of advice: Unregister.

      If you can't you could ask for a more experienced friend to rail and help out.

      As the poster above said you should be able to unregister. Doing so will give you the cash value of the ticket (most poker rooms allow this, depending on how you sat'd there).

      Guess it depends what you care about more: fun or profit. If the former, then go for it. Your heart will be pounding and your palms sweating when you make that crucial shove. If the latter, then try and unregister. Without an addon/rebuys you're at SUCH a disadvantage, not to mention you're going to be way out of your depth. The chances of winning are really very slim.

      didnt make it but it was nice
      didnt rebuy and stuff actually i went to the first hour with just above my starting stack
      i became 1 of the big stacks soon after but then went card dead for a while picked up aces and King in the big blind but it was folded around
      i missed final table by 2 spots
      must say the field was not difficult at all
      was nice not having 5 or 6 players per pot
      i went against you guys advise i started playing quite loose called a few 97s and 62s at first but there was huge stack bu to my bb and maniac on the bb to my bu so had to tighten up soon after
      finished 11th of 46
      shoved Ats in the sb 16bb deep bu called for like 2/3 of his stack with AJ
      he made jack on flop i hit T on turn so i had a 2 outter on river guess it was no meant to be
      well must say i learnt alot i played quite well i must say except for 1 or two spots one where i gave a free card and lost a pot i should hv won and i decided to call J3s in the bb hand be4 i went out maybe thats what cause me to shove At so deep but what can i say
      time to hit the drawing board and get back on the horse
      well i dont like horses but u know what i mean :D
