Nah did not play it, tournaments are just too much variance for me to handle, you could go for 2 months or more without winning, it takes a long time to ship it also you will need some luck and if you skilled you could get more chance of winning.
Also you'll need a bigger bankroll than other variants, and if you play outside your comfort zone, you might end up aiming for ITM, when you could have win that thing?
Remember folding that AA when ITM would give you a big cash near the bubble??
