I have also been tinkering around with playing MTTs, which I feel has been a bit of a waste of time. I'm not sure I can hack the variance in these things, as I have gone deep in several big tournaments where a big score was on the horizon, but inevitably I ran bad at the business end of the tournament, and busted before the money got decent. Perhaps eventually MTTs will be where I ply my trade, but I'll wait until I can take the brutality that comes alongside them.
Based on the session I just had with my coach Bwammo, some leaks have definitely crept into my game over the last couple of weeks. My confidence is definitely a bit low at the minute, and I think the fact I haven't stuck to my standard schedule has had a negative affect on my game. So after a kind of lazy month, with me not playing all that well, I'm seeing the 1st of May as a good time to 'start afresh'. The first four months of the year have been decent in terms of earnings, but I really feel I could have been much more productive and I want to go back to the work ethic that allowed me to play 3700 SNGs and have a $10k month last November.
I binked a seat on DTD Poker last week into the UKIPT event at Dusk 'til Dawn in May, and I'm also looking at playing the GUKPT main event at the G Casino in Coventry. Perhaps getting in some live practice before my in-the-process-of-planning trip to Vegas isn't a bad idea.
