It was my birthday last week so I had some birthday money and decided to deposit with it.

 

Got a nice +$10 deposit bonus +10 x 50c Spin and Win tickets for making a $50 deposit

 

Bankroll before, $97.42, after $157.42

Played the spin and wins and got horrible results, only $2 out of the entire 10 tickets. Were I paying for those tickets my profit would have been -$3... but +$2 to my bankroll so thank you Pokerstars.

 

So, I took a break from my regular grind to play some larger field games, here is how I went

Long day of grinding... to break even. Yuck, but who knows one of those MTTs could have run very deep and we would be talking about something completely different.

 

Will likely play some more MTTs today but will stick to low buyins (the $2.20 were a push and i only made a couple of them) with nothing above $2. I may even run a couple of sattys to the Sunday Storm.

 

Weekends I feel are long enough with enough time to devote to MTT schedules whilst the 45-man grind is better for the weekday evening since they are shorter and easier to run without having to commit to a 6 hour session.

 

Am also updating my Live Sweat where I can... had it running right along the 180-man final tables, all the way to the end with a blow by blow, was fun and will invite anyone to keep an eye on that forum post if you get the chance.
