When playing in these large tournaments, its important to remember to have patience and be decisive with all of your plays in each individual hand. A situation that will arise is the infamous suited Ace Queen hands. Although this is a very strong hand, remember that you are playing in a $1 tournament. Step lightly and play this powerful hand, as well as other top rated hands slowly post flop, and fast preflop, its always better to face one or two opponents than five.
Be sure to come play in this potentially Guinness World Record breaking tournament before the end of the New Year, and who knows, maybe you will be the main beneficiary of the added $300k!
