Thanks, found the US freeroll. But tend to disagree of how long it takes. Yesterday, made it passed the 2nd break in HORSE, and went out in 3,651st place. True, it does take longer to cut the field in half with limit. I finished 1st in HORSE about a month ago, took maybe 5 & 1/2 - 6 hours. Also finished real deep in those Poker Stars
donkfests, and it takes over 7 hours. I only played those out of pure enjoyment of hardish to find games, like Omaha HL, Badugi, 8-game, 2-7 Lowball. Thing is, once you get the field down to 2700, the competition gets a lot better, and they stop dropping like flies. At any rate, I've got a nice bankroll at Tilt. I play the HORSE, PLO and sometime Razz for fun, and maybe make a couple bucks. But 7500 is just brutal. No more.
BTW, at Poker Stars, the bubble itself takes 30 - 45 minutes. They start hand-for-hand maybe 3 out from the bubble, and you're waiting for 8 - 10 tables to finish each hand. I'd always sit out if I was in no danger.
