Yes ! It's possible....
I made the switch to Full Tilt last week and I have been positively destroying the .25/.50 full ring. I'm running at a ridiculous 82.64/100bb for $39.44 per hour ave. I hate to say it, but this level is so exploitable it's almost unfair. In addition I've been dominating the $11.00 (45) mans with 2 wins already and a handful of other top 6 finishes.
As far as the cash games go...it's not as if I'm just running well. I mean this is flat out domination not just a few monster pots I'm talking about here. I also have someone I am sharing risk with who is also killing under my watchful eye. So essentially we are cutting risk/variance in half and doubling our profit potential. We are tracking results meticulously, adhering to strict bankroll management (the 5% rule)
This is way beyond just 'running well' now. The numbers take care of themselves and we are playing low levels and exploiting what quite frankly is some of the worst play I have ever seen. I'm using PO, and almost everybody that plays that limit (.25/.50 NL) is addicted to limping in. Most of the players have a PFR % less than 10% lol talk about weak. Plus I've been running some sick bluffs... and I'm really at the point now where I can almost tell what someone has when they come in for a raise. data mining has definitely been the difference here.
As far as the sit and go's are concerned, I am already very familiar with the 45 man tourney format...and the structure on Full Tilt is waaaaay better than Stars. For an $11.00 buy in....1st is $171 and it pays top 6 instead of top 7 so the odds
for a win go from 13 to 1...to > 16 to 1.
Thats a pretty nice payout for a tourney that is pretty much chock full of uber donks.
Anyway I am just amazed at how much softer the players on Full Tilt are compared to Stars. I haven't even logged on Stars in almost a week now. I think I made the switch because I was getting really frustrated making it deep in so many huge tourneys lately and coming up just short of the big money over and over, so just decided to lay off MTT's altogether for a while and focus more on lower variance poker.
I'll keep you guys posted. I certainly don't expect to sustain a 82.64/100 rate I know the sample size is too small over a one week period, but almost all the profit isn't from just a few giant pots....most of it is moreless well timed pre flop aggression and selective c-betting... and these players are so passive they don't even fight back. It's almost unfair
