      Hi, donsmokey72

      Welcome to PokerStrategy.com and best of luck in the Sunday Storm!

      As far as I can from watching others, the level of play is fairly high after the first break. Before that there are a lot of inexperience players (and some experienced one!) busting out

      I've never played it personally.

      If you start w/ the standard mtt strategy you should be OK, but you may need to adapt to particular players at your table, your stack size etc.

      Best of luck!

      Ok thank you,

      A lot of fish indeed, one fish called 3 streets to hit his 2 outer. Lost with AA vs 44. So it wasnt a big succes.

      I made it to the money but lost JJ < A4s all in pre for a decent stack... that's the nature of tournaments :)

      hey guys,

      ive had some luck in the sunday storm. (previously sunday 1/4 million)

      I came 3rd / 33,000 entrants winning roughly $14,500 in sunday storm.

      as for the strategy... there are lots of terrible players especially within the first 3 hours of play. all I did was just standard mtt strat but first phase I would extend a little longer because of the huge number of entrants and donks. so play extremely tight and when you get a great preflop hand make sure your not letting multiple donks see a flop cheaply. if you wait patiently for a monster then isolate one of the many fish your chances of doubling up are high, and reaching the money not too difficult.

      once your fairly deep use your tight reputation to get some nice blind steals with a wider range in late pos. otherwise generally playing TAG once deep.

      don't think I need to say much more. this is one of my first posts here, its just an opinion from me hope it made a little sense :)
