      I play mostly $2-$16 mtt , i was going to drop the $2 ones for higher stakes but with 338% roi it seems stupid to do so.

      I try to keep 8 tables running and add in $3.50/$7/$15 18/27 mans when i drop below 8. Average around 50 games per day.

      I like the mtt format, 3k starting chips and slow blind increase. It suits my tightish style and allows for a lot of play before the push phase.

      I tend to play passive out of position and agressive with position.

      These are my favorites ,smallish fields for less variance.
      $2.20+R (500cap,3k gtd)
      $4.40 (2R+1A)
      $5.50/$9.90 (360 cap)

      heaterrrrr but solid. My advice is invest your goodrun in 2.50 180man turbos its a good foundation to get into mtt. Your roi will be cut in half but your hourly will double which is most important and less variance.

      I fear a new player like you wont be able to handle the other side of this variance but not like you will ever go broke playing 1-5$ mtt more like you will lose motivation when you get nothing but min cashes in 300 straight.

      Your right im not new to poker, but i am fairly new to playing as a career.

      I started at full tilt in May with the $50 and when it closed i was up to $800.
      Donked away the $100 ps gave me after full tilt closed.
      October i deposited at stars.
      December i bought a new laptop/hem.

      Motivation hasnt been a problem for me so far, in fact i probably play more than i should.

      I have played a few $4.50 180man but i just dont like the turbo format all that much

      Here is my 6 week graph since i started playing seriously(can you spot the Christmas drinking swing lol)
