Normally in an MTT session I play around 10-16 MTTs, normally over 6-12hrs. The exact amount of tables at any given time varies as new games start and early ones finish, or when I bust.. Max PKR allows in 9 tables, if I'm lasting well in all of them sometimes I have to unregister from some because I've hit the table limit. Or even worse if I'm at the limit and a game I really want to play is starting, then I'll close a table that isn't that important or where I'm doing badly (throwing away EV unfortunately) and open it again if a spot opens..

So generally for a session there's around 6 tables going, peaks at 9 and then obviously as the session winds down it's 6 again, then 5,4,3,2 and eventually 1 Smile

------------
No real strategy tips right now unless you have some specific questions - but I will say if you play more MTTs in a session, you'll bash through the variance a lot quicker.. And it's not hard to multi-table MTTs, there's generally only an hour or two in each one where you've got deep-stacked play, the rest is pretty standard pre-flop equity spots that you pick up along the way (especially once it's just shove/fold mode).

------------
edit: Oh - regarding amount of tables; I will also say - if I am running horrible (and I am prone to tilt) I will often just un-register from everything that hasn't started yet and cut the session short, once I've been donked out a few too many times for one session I start playing badly. It's important to recognise this and cut your losses. Likewise, if I am running really well, sometimes I will register in some extra games, to capitalise on my A-Game.

Also - if I'm running deep in a $50+ buyin game, then often I'll unregister from other games as well, I find with anything $30 and under, I can play in a fairly standard way and pick my usual spots.. But PKR has a pretty tight-nit community for $50+ games and quite often the final tables of these is 70%+ sharks (at least by PKR standards) and play becomes a little trickier and it's worth having a little more attention then.

Great way to start playng poker after such a long pause mate, people are different when it comes to playing poker after long breaks...

I mean there are people that play better after such a long break and there are people that need some sessions to get them going.

Nice one. Keep up the good work but dont get too overexcited by the fact that you are an instant winner and go and blow it all thinking you are invincible. Maintain good bankroll management and play within your limits. Well done.

Beautiful way for the poker gods to welcome you back!

That's some nice nice takedowns.

I think your strategy shows the holes in mine, I'll multi table 2 maybe 3 max for tournaments.

Might try more next time, as you say it's fairly standard the plays in the lower buy-ins. Thumbs Up

That's a great start for you! Keep that up and you'll get a nice little bonus by the ens of the month! From what I can understand you're a student and by experience I know that an extra $100 a month even is a great boost!

You're definitely one of the most talented MTT players I've actually had some sort of a contact with so I'm sure you can go far! Just keep up the good work and you'll be sitting in the Bahamas drinking an ice cold beer wile out playing some fishes at the tables Cool

Keep us posted on your progress and welcome back! Good luck in the future! Worship

You should do well, I took a pretty long break end of last year and came back in pretty good form. I think breaks generally help, you come back with some of the old enthusiasm and focus and get out of any bad habits that form over time, gives a fresh perspective and all.
