I totally agree itlegacy
(as indicated in my earlier post...#7) >>> great arena for practice...but for some peeps the time-benefit is not as valuable to them as their motivations &/or goals may lie in a different direction.
Right now I'm getting excellent HU practice in the PokerStars' Americas Cup Freeroll Shootout SNGs
(81-peep)...consistently winning the 1st table & come in either 1st or 2nd @ the Final Table; for me, the shootout format is excellent for the HU's practice, in a freeroll environment, since there's only '2' tables involved >>> the HU's practice is my motivation & primary focus (not a ticket to a $0.10 tournament that has max 10K-peeps); I have 5-6 of these tix & have yet to register for the 2nd lvl...if the other remaining peep is a solid player & we're eveny stacked, I'll even ask if they have won a ticket yet & state that I'm just there for the HU's practice --- if they haven't gotten a ticket, I'll 'throw' the game so they can get a ticket & I'll just reg for another game (as there are a bazillion of 'em) to continue practising. Hopefully this isn't construed as chip dumping (which is against TOS) as I'll wait for a decent hand to do it so it seems as though the other peep @ last earned the win.
