So, it is one of those times when there is just too many games, and something has to give.

My current schedule:

Full Tilt = MTOPS
Party = Pokerfest + clearing 50 points a month
888 = Live the dream
William Hill = New player mtt's
Stars = Spin and go
Sky = Grinding 20 points a night to get into the next days Punta Caca Freerolls
Pokerminds = Grinding points to withdraw freeroll cash

So, something has to give. I need to clear points on my main sites as that is my monthly income, but I also need to play the big poker festivals for that one big win that will make a difference to my BR.

What would you do?

What would you do?

PS - keep your self above 100VVP is a must in order to play 5000$ weekly freeroll (and 100K daily)
FT - MTOPS is simply not my fav.(yet)... i think you can find a similar scheme whenever you want on PS & FT, so I am not chasing necessarily MTOPS (unlike WSCOOP)
WH & SKY - dont know, I don't play, once I get a job in Isle of Man and HM passport i will let you know
888 - way too many players
PStars - SPin & Go is not going anywhere. they will have a lot more promotions like they have one now(daily chalenges). They've just started with that. However, do a daily chalenge - its easy to get a chance for a gamble shoutout. It's dolar a day more or less.
Pokerminds-in order to clear - play only 10/25, not less. Otherways it is going to take ages. however, I have managed to get 300 points, submitted payout request 46 hrs ago and still nothing. Idea is to pull out cash, put in again 10$, just in order to be able to play 250 Depositros, but ...
As I said, not a single voice from them, except acknowledgment - auotgenerated email saying that they will payout in 48hrs. a lot of people claim in last 3-4 days on their FB page that they are waiting more than 5 days now. No response from support, no explanation, nothing... Definetlly, started to be suspicious. I have actually stopped playinying until i dont get cash out. It sucks. Hours and hours I have spent there, it would hurt not to get that money, not only because of that money, but because I have seenm it as a big potential due to very soft competition. I would be disapointed if that happens, but it seems so.
Hope this helps a bit.

Unless their Punta Caca Freerolls offer an enormous payout potential, i would drop Sky first. But why did you sign up to William Hill just now, when you had a tight schedule before anyway?

It obv. depends on how much money you have on a specific site and how many tables you can play at once. The firdt is probably not as important because the goals seem very reasonable no matter how high you play. I think spin & go promo can be missed because it's not much value anyways.I'd say if your schedule allows you to grind MTops then the schedule is good enough to clear all of these tasks.

I find those games are -ev for me, in that I can earn more playing other games instead, so I don't tend to play them. I find more value in smaller sites.

It is the big guarantees (and frankly, all the fish who join these games just because they are a festival). Makes it +ev

You aren't missing much Tongue

Constant small wins though means I can keep the br there going up, without doing much at all.

Yeah this I think I will do for sure. Just play the daily challenge then log out.

I have been doing the coinflip games, have nearly 200 points but they are mind-numbingly boring and the slow software makes it worse too.

I am doing a trial withdrawal atm to see what happens. Basically just my (small) deposit plus a little profit from coinflips. I don't wanna try and clear the rest of the points if they won't pay out my trial.

Yes it helps, thank you

This is a good point, it is because I am dumb. I saw an attractive deposit bonus (I wanted to play in a certain game) and deposited without thinking it through.

The punta freerolls are pretty good.

You win a £37 (about $50) seat. You can either take the cash or play the seat (1 in 5 win a £170 seat). And that leads to a 1 in 5 £800 seat.

I have cashed 3 times in 3 days for over £100 (my total BR atm is £500), so it is quite a big % profit for a freeroll player

I had a situation like this earlier on in the year. I pruned down my sites and focus on just 4. Playing the ones that give best value and invariably where I do 'psychologically well. While the temptation of playing all my favourite sites was great, you have to cut your time appropriately.

I still have work so will miss plenty of games, but yes, I think you are right.

The problem with sky is the tables don't pop up on your turn, so they end up timing out over and over again. So when I play to clear the 20 points, I have to kinda play sky and nothing else. That said, I have worked out I can play 7 x £2 DYM's at same time to clear all points and it takes about 40 mins, so just a matter of picking my moment.

Maybe I can do it all and just need to be more organised?

Well, are tables on sky resizable? Germans cant play there so idk. But if its just 7 games per day then why not play 2 or 3 continous and play other games alongside? That way you have some action on sites simultaniously. Needing multiple screens or something to mix sites or to play many tables is a big false rumor, I also use only one 19" monitor,it's just all about managing your screen Smile

sit back relax, and just play the games that are most important to you. you don't have to play all the MTOPS games or all the POKERFEST games.just play what you have time to play. if you have to skip a game , bid deal, you can concentrate better, playing less games at a time. Thumbs Up

And try and squeeze in some family time Big Smile

They are too many for sure. Maybe with what is happening in pokerminds you can leave them
out for the moment, unless you can clear your deposit fast and request a cash out soon,
hoping to get paid.
But so many games will add stress to your game, which i believe you already have Smile

ok quick update:

Full Tilt = MTOPS = Given up on this and withdrawn BR, multi-entry makes it way too expensive for me
Party = Pokerfest + clearing 50 points a month
888 = Live the dream = coming to an end, withdrawn BR
William Hill = New player mtt's = only play when time
Stars = Spin and go = ended
Sky = Grinding 20 points a night to get into the next days Punta Caca Freerolls = those freerolls coming to an end, will be withdrawing a BR
Pokerminds = Grinding points to withdraw freeroll cash = fk that, wont bother with this till I get some more info on what is happening

So basically, I will be playing as many pokerfest events as possible this week, with the aim of keeping a bankroll till the second week when I have half term and can play more Big Smile

Hmm if you playing MTT you will have to play more and also hope that you get a good run and make some money and also be ready to deal with long swings without wins but hoepfully you will win most of the time and be in profit, good luck mate, hope you have fun at the tables and don't burnout playing too much tournaments that is what i did yesterday playing lots of games and cannot bring myself to play on Sunday, anyway good luck and have fun at the tables!
