Default wyeast 1028 London Ale question

I have been using 1028 London Ale for my porters with good success. This weekend I made a very strong (OG 1.100) porter and not thinking I pitched the yeast as normal.
After looking at the website, it looks like the 1028 is good to 10 % ABV.

Question is what is going to happen ? Will the yeast die before fermenting all the way ? Should I pitch more or a different strain ?

I know of people who have used yeast for beers up to 12% that were listed as having alcohol tolerance of 10%. Just make a good sized starter, use yeast nutrient, aerate your wort and RDWHAHB.
