Playing Your First Major Live MTT – PPP #47

What is your strategy when you qualified for your first major live MTT event through a satellite? Your opponents will likely perceive you as a recreational, fishy type of player: how do you respond to that? The team offer some advice on how to deal with this situation.

The stratchat (17:02) goes into an interesting micro stakes cash game hand that a listener sent in. This hand finds hero in a tough spot with A-9o out of position.
