Calling all Tourney Masters
I have a question for those of you tourney players out there. Now that I am a smiley, ok I just like saying that, and have done reasonably well in my last few tries at the 5K tourney I want to expand my horizons. So for those of you who play on Empire poker what should I take a shot on? Are the qualifiers good? I have to win two in a row for those to pay off. Are the 100/25 tourneys a lot harder? I would assume less people enter them, so instead of beating 249 people to make nineteen dollars, I could beat 75 to make a few hundred with a possibility at thousands?
My plan goes as follows for the next month:
1. Keep playing 5/10 short to grow the bankroll
2. Play O8 10/1, 20/2 or 30/3 games and parlay the winnings into
entries into MTTs, either the 5K, or whatever people think is good.
Hopefully if I keep taking shots at it one of these days I can say I came in first at something. The wife would love a cruise.. So get off your duffs and let me know what I should play. Should I stick to the 5K until I can consistently beat it? Is there any ability for consistent winning in these things or is it too much of a skill+luck thing? It seems like you could make a lot of money playing these if you got good.
