Oh I have enough money to buy the monitor, and hopefully I'll be continuing my generally upward graph multi-tabling cash games. It's just that, $100 is a lot. I'll probably end up playing it just because of the simple fact that $180 is probably at least half the monitor, and unless this tourney is filled with amazing players (10k FPPs isn't nothing though, so you'd think there'd be a lot less total fish in it), I've got a pretty good shot at the $180. I think I've definitely got a positive ev for this tourney from the looks of it, but I'm considering it for the same reason I probably wouldn't play in a $5/$10 cash game with horrible players. If I have a KK run into AA, or a set over a set, I'm out something I could have turned into $100.

I'm hoping a lot of people think this, and thus we have a lot of all-ins and a lot of people go out early, letting me essentially check-fold (not that I'm going to do that, but I'm just saying it's possible people will be loose enough such that sit-outs get paid when 1/3 get paid) my way into the money. The problem is my odds
of winning $200k are extremely extremely small. I know there are hundreds in this tournament who are a lot better than me, since I rarely do MTTs. If I play this my first goal will be to money, then jump up the ladder, etc. If I end up with a big stack though, I'll definitely be playing to build and finish high up. Also to those that haven't seen yet, this has an interesting structure. It starts as a turbo with 10 minute blind levels (although it has 3k starting chip stacks) and after 18 levels it goes slower (same time for blind levels, but blinds go up a lot less than usual).
