I have been thinking about giving that a shot for a week to see if, I too, can make it in the top 10. I haven't given it a shot yet, as I know I will need as much time to play as possible, and just don't have the time currently. Sounds like you are off to a good start, by being at 17 points so far. I'm sure you can make it into the top 10 if you put in as much volume as possible, and running good certainly wouldn't hurt either. I have seen a few threads (but can't recall who the OP was) about this leaderboard. Someone has gotten into the top 10 twice and ended up being put into a few freerolls
. I can't recall exactly how it worked, but it sounded good. I also agree that it is good practice at learning to deal with variance.
