I've been playing online poker for a few years now, but I don't have a ton of experience in live poker. Aside from some cash games I've played in Vegas, I have been part of about 10 live tournaments. Last month I qualified to played the LAPT in Lima, Peru. Considering that I usually grind the micro- and low-stakes MTTs, it's pretty scary to all of sudden play a $1,700 event, especially considering that the entry to this LAPT is my biggest cash to date by far.
Do you guys have any advice to give me with regards to playing multiway pots, survival and poker tells? I've heard the competition in the LAPTs is pretty soft, but I hope I don't get tempted into being involved in a lot of pots because of the passive opponents. By the way, I've read Zach Elwood's Reading Poker Tells and one of Joe Navarro as well, although I'm not particularly good at picking up that type of stuff.
