I used to recommend entering tournaments with the expectation of losing.
That's what happens most of the time, after all. I liked the emotional freeroll.

I no longer think this is the right approach. ⬇️…

I’ve reached the level of age and decrepitude where running ridiculously well in the WSOP Main Event would just be a massive wind up.
