First Multi-Day Tournament

Robert MRobert M Red Chipper Posts: 17 ✭✭
The WPT is coming to my local casino for the next few weeks. I usually will play their lower limit daily tournaments and the 1/3 cash games every once in a while. I plan on playing in the opening event, a 2-day, $360 buy-in with 5 day one flights and it is the first multi-day tournament that I’ll be entering. Should I be approaching a multi-day tournament any differently than I would a single day tournament? Is there any other advice you have for multi-day tournament strategy?

    Compared to a daily I think the biggest difference is stamina. Sleep and nutrition are at least as important as any strategy adjustment. It's really useful to be sharp in the last couple of hours of the day when others are starting to make mistakes.

    Dailies play shallow stacks and short levels ( as a general rule). 2 day tournaments will usually play deeper and with longer levels. This allows for mor patience and more use of your stack. Also a huge consideration is are there rebuys and can you enter multiple day ones and what happens if you advance more than once. The two most standard actions are surrender or sell back the shorter stacks. The option will be spelt out on the structure sheet. These as well as overall structure will dictate differences in strategy. Single most important thing is try to relax and have fun

    The pressure to chip up quickly is reduced with the slightly to much slower structure in a multi day relative to the quick to turbo daily structures. Kat is correct... being prepared to grind back to back long days is essential. Another key: pre-determine how many day one or rebuy bullets you intend to fire or not if you bust your day one flight. Pay attention to the action and the players... you may see some of them again as tables are broken and reconfigured as the tournament works it’s way past the bubble and up the pay chart.

    How did you do?

    Thank you everyone for all your advice and I ended up doing really well! I took 21st out of 644 which was the biggest cash of my life. My game has tremendously improved since I joined. I can't thank everyone on the forum and the RCP coaches enough!
