Again, nice job. Have a question for you, what limits do you play in relation to your bankroll (cash and tourneys) ?
HAHAHAH! I love Mookie! Did you not read that was my last 55 bucks.. but when I am being reliable:
10$ and Under with a 1K Bankroll
Start playing a few $20's with a $1200 bankroll..
Take a stab at something bigger every once in a while.
MTTs are so weird and you can go a long time without a cash. It is "usually" a good idea to keep a large amount of padding if that is your only source of income. I guess 100x the buyin is not a bad rule of thumb. I rarely ever play more than 1-2 games a night so I could probably play higher. Since I am a TILT head though I like to keep my loses low in relationship to my bankroll.
I am actually itching to play another 90-person $50 MTT. I think that, as I have mentioned before, small field MTTs are a very good fit for my style. I can wait a little, get close to the final table, then make a couple of moves, and BAM! I am in like Flynn.
I have the most success in <200 person MTTs although to be fair I do not play a whole lot of the other type. I have never gotten first place in a HUGE field, actually scratch that, I did do VERY well in the Party Poker 1$ and 2$ MTTs for a while. I final tabled in a large LHE MTT once also for one of my biggest scores. I would have to say my largest scores have been around 1K. It would be nice to take down a larger event one day and I think I have the skills to do it. Until then I am happy where I am.
** BTW: I am sure other people have good advice, please post it in the comments section.
