It's commendable that you're consistent about being ITM + ROI = 4x buy in...esp in the fields you're playing in. It appears that your goal at this point is to have a win (or @ least a final table)? Perhaps consider playing in a multi-table SNG...I find them to be like mini-MTTs (& play them that way); I enjoy the 90 & 180 peep SNGs, specifically KOs.
Also, just a suggestion, it's indicated that you have a 'play to win' mentality but it just hasn't gotten you there quite yet? This is the approach I use, it may not work for everyone but I like to benchmark my progress & it works well for me...
- Make it to 1st break
- Make it to 2nd break
- Make it to ITM
- Make it to final 3 tables
- Make it to final 2 tables
- Make it to Final Table
- Make it to Final 3
- Take it down
The primary reason that I use this approach is it helps with my decision making...what do I want to accomplish @ this point in the SNG or MTT (ie: do I really want to call a 4xBB raise oop with 3.3 & maybe hit a set (~13% of the time) against a solid player or am I on track for the Final Table?). Note: I'm also taking into consideration stack sizes, blinds & antes, the other players' tendencies, etc...
It's good that you'll be posting HHs in the HA section for feedback, you'll receive a lot of good input there. GL.
