But good practice for what? For tournaments where 7k+ entrants start with 300 chips? How many of those are there?
I'm just saying, with The Ferguson the effort to reward ratio's better. Even with the regular old $100 freerolls
it's better because you're at least going to win some real loot, just not a pile of it, still it's a minimum of 2 Daily Dollar buy-ins.
Short stack practice? Buy in short, it's real short stack practice since you're surrounded by much bigger stacks.
I'm just not getting how it's good practice. You could explain it, and I'd at least try to understand.
Just look at the format it's a short stack turbo!!! Who in their right mind would play a short stack turbo for real money
on a regular basis? If they're rich they might play one every now and again for a diversion, but still...
Short stack = open up your starting hand requirements and be prepared to shove. Turbo = open up your starting hand requirements and be prepared to shove(because by being a turbo it pretty much automatically short stacks you even with 1500 chips).
So congratulations. You found the perfect way to practice for short stacked, all-in, shove-fests that pay the same prize over 200 places. It's not even good practice for The Daily Dollar which is what it's a satellite for.
I'm sorry, I just think you're all much smarter than that. Don't get me wrong, I think the dumbest freeroll on FTP has got to be that Phil Gordon Making The Final Table DVD one.
Look, if you say it's a fun diversion, that I'll buy. If you say it's good practice, you're gonna have to sell it harder. I'm just not buying it.
