  • Anyone else think these should be scored and not the "Skill League"?

    I always play SOO much better in these because I don't have to fold AQ when the next two people behind me start betting 20+ bb's. Because no one does that... for the most part.

    Once I get past the first 3 levels or so I can play my game and my full range. I cant do that in the "Skill League" because I will play very good hands like AQs and get re-raised by three people behind me and at that point I'm not going to go all in so I fold. Do this three or four times and I'm down under 10 bb's by the 4th level. So I'm pretty much forced to go all in (If I were playing like a REAL MTT.) But at that point I'm still risking -10+ points, So I really cant do that because half the time I'll get called by one of those donks who got lucky and have a huge stack and get called with J9 and they hit a pair and no ace comes. So it is more profitable to just sit until I'm down to under 5 bb's and go all in with any marginal hand I have. If I get lucky enough to get through the bubble even then I rarely can play my game because I am still under 10bb's.

    The warm ups play so much better for me. Mostly because of the 1525 filter (Though I think it should be at least 1575) removing most of the donks so I don't have to play SO TIGHT for SO LONG. I almost always get top 6 within the first 8 or so games I play. And that is a very small payout percentage: 6 of 250+. I don't know why but I play so much better in these than the "Skill League". It's like night and day.
