Default SCOOP #15 Stakewatch Thread

This event is a No Limit Hold Em Turbo Freezeout 2X Chance. This means that it is a typical NLHE tourney except that if you go bust in the first hour you can rebuy once for the starting stack of 5000. This makes for an interesting bit of strategy, as you can put more pressure on in certain spots. For instance you have more leverage against someone who has built up their chipstack, as they likely want to maintain their stack while if you're under 5000 you can go for broke quite literally. It would also perhaps be wise to push draws much harder, even perhaps to make large all-in bets with draws while you still have your rebuy available. Considering the late start for this event, it's a welcome relief that this is a turbo. The blinds are 5 minutes in both the LOW and the MED.

I will be playing the LOW and MED tournaments. The LOW is a $16.50 buy-in with a guarantee of $250,000. The MED is a $162 buy-in with a guarantee of $500,000.

To stakers : You are encouraged to participate in this thread and offer your support. If you would like to sweat me, that is fine as well. The only thing I ask if you are sweating me is to keep the observer chat to a minimum. Absolutely nothing that could be construed as strategy should be said, and I would prefer that you not even say hi or good luck unless I am deep. I don't mean to be a dick, but it affects the perceptions of others at the table. If you would like to talk to me personally, I will be on IRC for that purpose.

To players : Post your chip counts and hand histories! This thread is more about the event then my stake, you are encouraged to participate. The more the merrier and all that.
