      Not a good start but in my defence I have had a couple of bad beats. Never mind, it can only get better.

        Right now I feel like I couldn't win a raffle if I bought the only ticket !!!!!!!!

        The strange thing is that I am playing and cashing well in other tournies, just seem to have lost the plot a bit on the challenge.

        Time for a little break I think.

            At last a bit of a result thanks to an ATC shove monkey who doubled me up twice early on.
            Eventually went out to a straight flush v my ace flush.

              These are a long haul boobylops, I'm trying the 90 man $0.25 myself. Just keep playing each hand the best you can and you will get there eventually .

              By the way I thought you made a great call against me in the storm freeroll satellite yesterday, when I put you to the test in a really tough spot, blind v blind similar stacks. (I couldn't say so at the time as they don't allow observer chat).

              Good luck

                Typical, I'd given up on this for now and then cash on my very last one , lol

                Will carry on now.

                Thanks for the kind words ED.

                  Struggling against a terrible variance swing, since yesterday morning have played for over 18 hours and during that time I have had AA twice,KK 4 times and QQ 3times. In the same period I have had 7,2 off well over 50 times.

                  Despite that I have somehow obtained an $11 Sunday Million ticket and cashed twice in smaller freerolls.

                  Roll on some good cards.

                    Well the run of bad cards continues, I have played another 4 hours and got AA 3times (lost with them twice) KK 3 times and QQ 4 times (won every time with them !!) but 7,2 off is still my most common hand,at one point i was dealt it on all 4 tables I had open at the time.

                    Still,some little cashes and I managed 17th out of 4376 in the 9pm VIP 10c.

                      4 tables?

                      Try single tabling for a while. You are either having a real big run of bad luck or you aare getting your chips in in bad situations.Unless I miscounted, in your 41 games, you only made it to the final two tables 18 times. You should be able to get there over 50% of the time.

                        Normally I play these 2 at a time but at certain times of day (7pmish ) I am also playing 2 other MTTs.

                        I don't think the multi tabling is the problem, I'd pretty much given up on this after the first 20 games which accounts for the large number of early exits, I almost started playing Bingo.

                        However I am having a really bad run with hands I am being dealt, cat 1 hands just aren't coming like they should and I'm tending to try and force weak hands when I should be folding them..... I know what the problem is, just don't know how to deal with it.

                          So I had a think about the advice above and decided that I would try and make sure I made the final 2 tables as often as possible, results are as follows:

                          41. #482205904.... $0.25.... 06/45.... $0.62.... $ 2.19
                          42. #482206509.... $0.25.... 23/45.... $0.00.... $ 1.94
                          43. #482228251.... $0.25.... 23/45.... $0.00.... $ 1.69
                          44. #482255123.... $0.25.... 07/45.... $0.36.... $ 1.80
                          45. #482256629.... $0.25.... 05/45.... $0.93.... $ 2.44

                          Cards are still running bad for me, although not as bad as the last two days, maybe the challenge is possible after all.

                            booby are you getting help from someone to know that you are not leaking chips? I would be happy to look at a couple of games for you with no obligation.

                              Thanks Chris, apart from the suggestions in this thread no help available.

                              I will ship the 3 games I played tonight to you for analysis, much appreciated.
