You know I have not had much success at MTT's although I did play a ton a freerolls
on-line in teh very begining of my poker play but once I started playing live ring games I came to a grand conclustion...............
The time spend playing tourneys vs. the time spent playing ring games just didn't add up. I mean I have play a couple dozen 60'ish buy-in live MTT's and placed in the money a few times. Once I placed second and took home a nice bundle. But when I add up the hours vs. the same hours playing ring games. I make at least 8 times more cash playing ring games per hour. Now maybe I am not a good tourney player. But I am not sure I will ever play tourneys for a living. Ring games are the sweet spot for me and will be my full time paycheck very soon.
As many others have already said, what works for you works for you. What works for me works for me. Find your place, focus and hone you talent. That is where the money is......................what makes you happy
