I'm all set to play a live tournament on Wednesday night with a poker playing mate. It's a $50 satellite for a $1100 event. It will be only the second time I have played poker in a Casino - a thought that is slightly daunting.
It's certainly the cheapest way to sample live Casino poker. The cash games are out of reach of my bankroll at present (10/20 limit and $500NL).
I will play pretty tight, and aim to finish around the top 20% or so. There are 100 players, and probably the top four will qualify - a pretty tough ask.
