Anyways I wish you all the best Blazing Saddler.
I like MTT's too. I just don't often have 5 or 6 hours to sit and play them, I do find they get a bit tedious. You play well for 4 hours and get outdrawn and bang your gone. I know that is variance, and you get paid big when you win them.
I like the daily double ones on Full Tilt. They run the same tournament twice at the same time. It is good because it stops the boredom. I can't play cash and a tournament at the same time, it just frazzles my mind. Different game, different situations, different decisions, it just leads to bother, so these are ideal.
All I would say to you is, don't give up on what you want. Poker isn't really that important in the grand scheme of things, and there probably are more important things you wish to do with your life, so do those. However if you really want to make it ot $50 NL. Work your ass off to achieve it. It can be done.
