I recently won an $11,000 prize package on Party Poker.  It was a $215
buyin with 137 entrants where the top two would win the package.  I
finished 1st and won 7 free nights at the Rio in Las Vegas, $1,000 in
cash, and a buyin to the main event worth $10,000.

I am very excited for the main event.  As a 21 year old college
student, I wouldn't mind having an extra couple hundred thousand (at
least) assuming I go very far in the tournament.  My questions are:

I need as much information as possible on potential players, estimated
amount of total buyins, blind levels, even good places to eat nearby
the Rio.

I also feel like as much information you could give on the subject of
focusing and keeping concentration over a 12 hour period of straight
poker, over several days.

It would be great also to have a list with two headings: good poker
habits (good decision making skills, taking time on each decsion,
avoiding giving out tells) and bad habits as well such as going all in
to steal the blinds.  The longer the list the better.

It would be even better if you could give make a timeline of the
tournament including the estimated number of players left based on
hours or days played and also the average stack at the point during
the tournament.

Basically, as much information as I can get and use to help my chances
of cashing in the main event of the WSOP (without actually playing and
practicing).  It was really cool to win the $11,000 package, but
coming home with stacks of green would be even better.

Thanks in advance.

If you want a good list of tactics, etc. Have a look at the Poker Tips web site.
The link for tips is:

Also Poker Strategy (look in the Poker Strategy menu).

And there is a good set of articles in:

There's loads of good stuff there.

I know there are people who will tell you there is no real substitute
for playing, playing and more playing - but there are times when this
is not possible.

If you have limited time to practice, or no real opponents, try out
being able to play a game exactly the same whether you have pocker
aces or a 5-4 off suit. Often your body language (or responses to
people asking you a question) will give away almost as much as turning
your cards face up.

I'll leave it to others to cover the other parts of your question.

Good luck, and if you win $1 million, you owe me a pint!

I hope these links would help you.
Please ask for a clarification if you have a question or if
you would need further information.
