I've been getting back into online poker over the last week. I had my eye on the recent Poker Heaven SNG promotion, racking up as many points as possible by cashing in €20+2 10-man SNGs. I came 2nd in a similar promotion last year. It became apparent that there were two sick monkies going to come first and second who didn't think it was necessary to eat/sleep/wash so I kind of gave up with it. Also, having to contend with the dodgy Boss Media software was killing me, and I was running so below EV it was unfunny. I managed to hang onto fifth, despite quitting 4 days into the 7 day promotion. With the prize money and rakeback, I made a decent bit of dosh doing it, so I'm not going to complain too much.
I thought after a few days of using such bog-standard software, I might as well have another crack at playing the 45 and 90 mans on Full Tilt rather than just jump straight back to PokerStars. My decision to crank up to 16 tables straight away was a little silly, as it turns out stacking tables on Full Tilt is just not at all smooth. I managed to run like death with 1 cash in 21 games, with the software and also the length of the games (up to 2 hours to finish as opposed to about 1 hour for PokerStars games) and I was just rueing my decision to bother with Full Tilt and couldn't wait to get back to PokerStars.
