      So I don't understand this. I would like to play in such MTT from time to time, but I know I will have go to work on monday, so I will have to go to sleep early and that means I cannot play that tournament.

      Why isn't it better to make them on saturdays? Then I play it and for me it does not matter how long will it last, because on sunday I will be able to sleep as much as I need.

      I think many players should have the same problem as me.

      the solution is clearly to man up and get no sleep sunday night.

      you can sleep when youre dead.

      Another clear solution: win Sunday major -> no work on Monday.

      Hey SPeedFANat1c,

      How come you're insistent on playing BIG MAJORS? Playing fields weith 200-500 players will really help you develop as a player. If you win the Sundya Million you;ve usually ran really really well, if you win say a 10k gauranteed on ipoker or 5k gauranteed on ongame you have probably ran well but really deserved to win the comp.

      Can't you say the same if you win a big major?

      The problem is I am fish at tournamets, I am cash player. And my time for poker is very limited so I dedicate it for cash game when I study.But when the cash game runs bad, then I go to play some low BI tournaments just for fun :) Of course I would not buyin where the buyins are big, but I could try to win a buyin through satelites. But now I don't play those satelites because I know that the tournament time is not good for me.

      But as one of posters suggested to search tournaments on saturday and I did, and found 30K garantied with only 3.3 $ BI. This is cool, I will probably play it if I will not plan later something on saturday.


      if you win say a 10k gauranteed on ipoker


      I hate tournaments on iPoker, because as I remember there are most of them with fast blinds going up. Unless I did a bad search and so did not find with 15min blind levels like on stars.


      But maybe I should start to study MTTs together with cash. At least a bit, to not be a biggest sucker :)

      uhhh he's right.

      huge field MTTs are a giant variance fest and to win one you need to run INSANELY good.
