You were meant to say another profitable day right? Not bad there, you made a profit and soon you will be up in the final table, trying for the first position. Good luck and have a nice walk with that joint of yours

Gratz for your good run at Stars! The hyper turbo tourneys are bringing many fun, but this kind of tourneys are not so easy to handle if you don't have good hands in the first levels. But with a agressive gaming style and some good hands, you canreach everything.
Of course it's very insulting to finish the tournament so early ..... especially if you were recently the first .... but still you got a small win and probably very tired of a long game .... of course you need to take a break for the brain so that with new ones To go to victory
Hey TheIrish! It seems with your skill level you are playing a bit low buy-in tournaments. 55 cents buy-in tournaments take as much time as a 2$ one but have 4x less prizepool in the end... I think anything under 1.50$ in a MTT is kind of a waste of time unless you're doing it for the fun/learning experience. But I think you're past that! BR management is important but too strict is as bad as too loose if you know what I mean. Same as being too nitty or too tight on the tables

From the screenshot i see you were almost in the money. No new updates since then, but with the chip stack you had i bet you got paid for it, got your buy in back and a profit. I wonder if you did win this one

My thoughts exactly - I mean - I've seen a few posts saying you are crushing these $1 MTTs.
So either - you're actually losing a whole tonne that you're not telling us about, otherwise surely by now your winnings should allow you to move up to $5 games or something??
I can't fathom sitting through an entire MTT to end up with 6 bux! Madness.
if you are genuinely maintaining a strong ROI on these games (and not just cherry picking good runs to give us a false sense of how you are running) - then you should be able to maintain a winning ROI at $5 - the games really aren't that much tougher, it's still micro stakes and still loads of donks doing loads of stupid things.
Your ROI might drop a little, but your hourly should increase significantly...
Also - I don't mean to sound like a wanker - and I obviously don't know your financial situation, so please don't take offence at what I am about to say.
But at the micro stakes, my advice is to ignore BR management - it is pointless if you're playing dollar games.
You're nearly 40 and live in Canada - once again, I'm genuinely sorry if I'm totally misjudging your financial situation.
But on average - a 40yr old Canadian man should be able to happily play $5 BI games without worrying too much about financial ruin.
There's really no point dicking around for 6 months running $20 up to $200 playing $1 games, so you can move up to $2 games and rinse and repeat until 2 years later you are finally playing $5 or $10 games.
It's just pointless - just cheat and deposit what you need to play the $5 games or $10 games. So long as you are a winning player, you won't get a bad streak all the time, sooner or later you'll go on a heater and build the roll you need to happily play 5/10 dollar games without having to deposit any more money.
Generally with MTTs it only take 1 good game, if you bink a single $10 game, or even a large field $5 you could easily land yourself with 100BIs for those stakes!

@ Jessethehuman - It's not a money thing at all bro. Just don't play all that much to be honest. I'm definitely on a down swing due to my Sit & go's but i would certainly have a much better BR if not for that. I'm just going to start playing bigger buy-in's and see where it takes me. What's the worst that happens lose some money ?
I wish i could dedicate my time like the lot of you cause I think if my game would grow very quickly and I'm already playing well enough to be near the top of a tournament consistently. I always get chips but seem to lose it near the end which is the part that really hurts the most. i just like winning not really the money thing.
Thanks again for all your feedback and I'll Take it all and process.

At first: gratz for your good running on stars! These hyper turbos have a great payout structure and over 236 bucks for the first place for a playing time of 1 h 20 m was really good. I think i try some hyper turbo games next weekend and wish all mobsters gl at the tables
