ShowDoun plays the Bodog 100k frequently since Black Friday. He used to enjoy the Sunday tourneys on fulltilt and pokerstars where the prize pools would be 100k and buyin only 10 bux or 22 for the double deuce. He cashes in it often but nothing higher than a top 12 finish. The payouts are top heavy and he gets tempted to go for the mincash if he has less than 10bb's with 50 or so players to go to get into the money. This strategy probably costs him the chance to accumulate a large stack to go deep, but he gets itm more often playing slow and cautious near bubble. The times he did go deep he had a safe stack near bubble.
The field size is about 600 players and usually has some overlay. 90 get paid so it's a high pct compared to most mtts that get itm. Always seems to be a loose aggro on the table early on and 4 or 5 tightwads waiting for premos. I look up each player on bluffmagazine . com and about 10 pct of the field have over 6 figures in overall winnings. Most players are satty winners, newbies or players with less than 1k won.
Sadly, this is the only tourney with a 6figure prize pool that he plays. He did play the Merge Network 100k a handful of times in May/June and even won free tickets to it in their 100 seats to 100k freeroll, but went broke chasing their bad beat jackpot at the cash tables. He never deposited on any poker site
and doesn't want to start now.
zubs1aa scored big in Bodog's Poker Open for 75k. He plays in a few cardschat Bodog tourneys and probably does the 100k sometimes. given68 and bryan24 recently won tix thanks to the private games. Silverfox432 was chipleader when I busted a couple weeks ago in the 100k and went deepish for top 27. JohnnySeaBet aka PokerOrifice finally dusted off the cobwebs on his ticket and played the other day. Connector hands like 63 and QJ are good to play against his type early on
