Might have to switch to Full Tilt

From my blog at:

I stopped playing sng’s last Saturday. After a bad month in March I found myself even worse off halfway through April. I just couldn’t have a winning session.

So I have spent the week playing some MTT’s and trying to decide what to do. I have played some rush sng’s and MTT’s at Full Tilt. On a whim Thursday I decided to play 6 $11 sng’s there. It went very well. I have played a few more sets since then and every one has been a good set. It is early days – but the play seems to be so much softer there. I hardly ever see more than 1 person loading up multiple tables. (Unlike PS where there are usually 3-4 doing it at an given time).

I really hate to play there with no rake. But I guess I might try it for a few months and see if I can get some Iron Man bonuses. I will miss Pokerstars – I like it soooooo much better. But I guess I will have to play where I can profit.

Full Tilt's Rush MTT's

From my blog at:

I played in the $5.50 one last night – it was fun! There were 2288 entries and I managed to finish 30th. It was only a small cash of about $30.

I found it relatively easy to build chips in the early to mid-game stages. The game was fast – and took a lot longer than I thought it would. By the time I went out in 30th it was already 3.5 hours. It was a double-stack with 6 minute blind levels.

I could have gone deeper if I hadn’t mistakenly thought a huge stack was bullying me with his re-raise. I had 88 so shoved and he called with his AA lol.

I will try some more of these – but you can’t really multi-table too much when in one of these games so it will hurt my volume. Also the HUD didn’t work – but that wasn’t really relevant until it got done to less than about 100. I know the HEM hud works for cash rush tables so I guess they will get it going for tournaments too.
