So - as usual, I've left my with a problem.
This isn't the standard "Nearly lost my BR" problem.
This is more,
I've staked (Like an idiot) €50.00 in total on step games, knowing these are no good unless you intend on going to the live event. Sure these are good and not a bad investment if you don't go over board, but as normal I can't help myself.
I loved the steps because it's a different sort of a adrenaline compared to standard STT's but I've hazzard a guess that's I've spent around €50.00 on €2.20 euro steps, I've played around 20 of the addictive buggers..
Anyway, to cut a long story short, I left myself with 6 Step B's, 2 Step C's I think it was and ended up with €92.00 (€42.00 profit) which is all good, but obviously not "that" good as you have no alternative but to play more steps.
Anyway, after 3 coolers in 3 Step C (I won some extra Step C's from Step B's) ticket games on the bubble I ended up winning a Step D in another one.
I'm now left with one solitary Step D ticket lol. This means, I've basically still got a profit, but a smaller profit and stuck with a worthless ticket in terms of currency ticket which means my options are as follows:
1: Carry on the step programme (which is the whole idea) Although very unlikely with only one chance of cashing all the way to the live event (next to impossible I'd imagine actually.
2: Alternatively, play in a €82.00 MTT satty. The €500.00 MTT satty runs once a day. It's basically your standard MTT satty, 2000 chips 10 minute rounds so "some" decent poker available.
It pays 1 in 7...so I'm really going to have to run good and I expect a fair few of the players to be quite good at least.
If I managed to cash in the event I can then unregister and get €500.00 tournament dollars.
So, I want people opinions, do I just grim and bear it and carry on going as long as I can in the steps whilst racking up loads of VPP's/FPP's with an unlikely Step G cash of €10k or take a shot where I think I'm more like a 10 to 1 shot as opposed to 7 to 1 shot on getting the €500 tournament dollars due to the players most likely being better. I suppose I might be able to suck some out or run like god etc..but is this worth it?
Would you think the competitiveness is easier in the STT or the MTT?
