Just like elite live tournaments such as the World Series of Poker Main Event, to succeed in the $75K Double Deuce you’ll need to stay intensely focused for long periods of time. Plan for comfort by bringing water and snacks to the computer with you before you sit down to play. Resist the urge to just browse the web and start neglecting the tournament mentally.
Big tournaments like this are definitely a grind, but when you find yourself at the final table you’ll realize it was all worth it.
