Agreed, it's not really a big sample, and I was only looking to clear my bonus fast. Cleared in a few hours. I've read on 2+2 about ed miller's short stack play. Since I was purely looking for a fast way to boost my mini BR, I thought, why not try it? Chris Ferguson used this method to turn $1 into $20,000 within a few months.
Of course, I'm not trying to duplicate that feat, just thought I'll try it for a little fun. Like said, it's not really playing poker.
