Default MTT Variance

Well, I just finished my 4th staking agreement and was absolutely rocked this time around. Each time have been for 50 180man sng's on Stars starting with the $4, then $10 (Stars stopped these right in the middle of my backing), $11 turbo's (wowsers) and then finally the $22. I had better than 85% profit on all of the first 3 but this last one was brutal. Out of the 50 trny's, I only had 4 cashes with none being on the FT. 3 of those 4 were 10th place finishes. I had 2 bubble finishes in 19th and so many horrid suckouts.

They say variance is huge in mtt's. I experienced a little of that this time around and it suks

Yea, I dabble in tourneys here and there, but the variance is so crazy, I can't stand it. I've committed to not playing any of the FTOPS this time, but we'll see if I can hold myself to that.

well, I think you have done well because I think they finished last weekend, but not positive on that.

I remember when I first deposited on FT, and I won a sat to a 26$ buy in tourney, and got 7th out of 1000. I remember thinking "man this poker stuff isn't so hard". Since then I've learned.

well, seeing as how I beat myself down, time to turn that around. Was just about out of funds on Stars and entered 7 4/180 man sng's. Missed cashing in the first 6 but won the last one for $212. Since I had gamled a bit with that, decided to gamble a little bit more and take 1/2 of it to 3/6 6max limit.




Time to take 25NL seriously now
