It seems like an age since I last cashed on a FT MTT.

felt good today and decided to play a couple MTT's, entered the $1 $400 GTD and grinded to the FT and busted out in 7th with a6s against ajo.

Should have finished higher, had a decent chip count before the FT and played a few too many loose hands.

the guy with AJ had been targetting my blinds for a while on the previous table so I thought shoving my A6 was the way to go, not to be though.

$12 seems like a pittance for the time and effort I put in and really thought I'd make the top 5 at least.

It's a relief to cash well all the same - I feel the tourney magic coming back

The tourney magic - Mmmm...what does it feel like? Please let me know.

Well done anyway...........although it does seem like a lot of effort for $12.00 but imagine what you can turn it into.

GL to you all....................

The important thing is that you were ITm and you also made a small profit at the end of the day Blink

MTT have huge variance so it's perfectly normal to have days when you do not win anything or you are breakeven.

Yeah, ITM 15 % is good, but win first place in 6 month or more isn't good , right ? Some of my problem is like noonlion 'fault'. Wrong time ( ? ) to shove or had poor stake at FT ( many times ).
Of course I asked to my self : Why ? but I didn't find good answer yet.
Would someone help me ? or....Is it perfectly normal, still ????

have mentioned it before,,,why not be more patient and let some dudes get knoecked out...in the meanwhile u can hit A-A,A-K or other nice hand or spot toto superaggresive with...and double maybe even triple up,, since ur getting shorter and shorter...

i think diff between 7th and 4rth...must be around 20-30 $ ,,,so worth to wait and be more patient..

if the cards decide u gonna win this tournament,,,u will anyways ,,no mather what u do when realy ,realy shortstacked...


for example ,,i ended 2 times second yesterday in a freeroll at yachting ,both reaching final table as the shortstack...

anyways ,,good luck in future...love to hear people over here win 1rst prizes tho...

Worship Worship

i know some brm -members will not agree and say u should always try to win 1rst once u came that far...

but my approach is..be happy with what faith or destiny brings...dont play with fire too much.
the moment u register u already playing with fire,risking some money...
