They need to have fresh mind, and seeing it only like a game, which is what it is, not counting all the values surrounding him.

It makes your eyes waterjust thinking about it! The old rule applies though...only gamble what you are prepared to lose. If you woprry about losing 50k....you shouldnt be there...same goes for any tourney buy in...hence bankroll management. These guys have some serious money to start with but still interesting to see their faces when they get busted out.

It would be great to have the opportunity to play in just one game that cost $50,000.00 to buyin. I tghink I'll post a thread asking about this. Anyway as for the subject matter I'd like to see someone win it that hasn't ever won anything of any size.
