              This year i'll play only MTT and want to put quality games rather than quantity.

              As the main goal for this challenge is the Bankroll Management and i'm playing a 1% BR each game, each games will last 2-3 hours when i reached Final Table and had a 1 hour interval between them.

              I think risking 10% a day of your BR is a good BR management practice to control variance in case i go on deep downswing which is normal in MTT.

              I did not expect to play the maximum 10 games per day unless i got early exit which is normal in MTT when your in bad run.

              Thanks adohole and any suggestion is very welcome.

                a max 10% of your br is indeed a good idea. but if you get a downsing (at least for me) its really nice to just put in some vallume that makes it go a ltile faster. and now you cand end up days without cashing anything maybe even weeks. so i would play even lower stakes but put in a litle more vollume. but you have to do what works best for you. and again best of luck

                  The trend the way i run is either i have good day or bad day, find it not much help if i add volume when i have a bad day, so it like my stop button.

                  0.55 is the lowest CAP buy-in. I'm using like STT just to keep BR healthy before grinding the Turbo.
                  I plan to keep playing it even i move up in stake, like 1 or 2 game a day.

                  Thanks for the suggestion ans good luck on your 2014 goal.

                    Just 1st week of this challenge i failed the main goal in sticking to a Good Bankroll management.

                    Can't resist the itch of playing bigger buy-in like 10% and even 20% of current BR that i use to play.

                    Almost break even in 100 Games of 0.55 CAP after 40 games.

                    Still not late to keep and stick to Good Bankroll Management.

                    Need to play free-rolls and used FPP to satty and convert it to T$.

                    Wish me luck to be able to counter the itch to get into out of my BR buy-in

                    Any advice will be much appreciated.

                    Good Luck PSO'ers on your goal and don't follow me in failing right from the start.

                        Success Pinoy with your plan for 2014. Good BR management should be on anybody's plan. I like to grind T$ with the 5fpp rebuy sats to the Sunday Storm, because it's so full of bingo all inners.

                          Tried a couple but still no success but used add-on 1st try and couple like 3 bullet. Might try some more. Thanks for dropping by and good luck at the tables. PH .
