    Yeah, it's a really interesting strategy. The only problem is that most of these 8 point rebuys only pay out, maybe two seats. I guess closer to the actual event you might get a handful more, but it's tricky if you're a really short stack come the end of the add-on period.

    I'd love to try the jam every hand strategy until you're off the ground and see how that matches up with yours, but my FPP bank is always pretty low. I stick to preflop jamming in +EV spots, and it's gotten me pretty far for either 8 or 16 points alone. It's pretty rudimentary and I haven't actually won yet, but It'd be very interesting in finding out from these experiments which strategy carries you to the prize more often.

      Yeah, the 8 FPP one left me really short. Don't think my mis calculation of timing the BB would have helped anyways. TOO short stacked. I'm in the 75 FPP one now. Longer rounds so, we'll see. Just taking the PSO skill set to these. Not saying I don't have any other skills. Well, maybe I don't. So, who cares? LOL Will keep you guys up to date. -shark

            I told you. You would've won that hand if you'd have taken your table saw and some wood.

            Good luck in the next one.
