Every decision in a poker tournament can be worth far more than meets than eye, but imagine what every decision is like in a tournament with a £1,050,000 buy-in. Natural8 Pro Michael Soyza explains a fold he made in the Triton Million for Charity against Bryn Kenney, but it might have gone different if the buy in was slightly less. He had a read and a feeling that Kenney was pushing but ultimately decided to wait for a better spot. Soyza explains how the dynamic can be very different in a crazy buy in and how interesting it is to watch the footage after an event.
