      Hey, here are my results from 3 tournaments I played in the last 3 days.

      Day 1: Micromillions-82 $2.2 buy in- 13k runners - finished 3rd after deal for $2.7k

      Day 2: Micromillions-96 Sunday Storm $11 buy-in - 50k runners - finished 107th for $330

      Day 3: Big $5.5 - 7k runners - finished 27th for $80.

      I am not actually a tournament player, my main game is PLO cash(where I have been losing for the past 2 months), but after these results should I consider switching to MTTs?

      Oops I just realised that this is the Hand evaluation thread, can someone move it to a more appropriate thread?

      3rd place in 13k is great, esp with the deal. congrats.

      I'm curious how you managed the push fold stages at low BB? Were you a bigstack from early on in the tourney, and got to run over the tables?

      @breena: You are doing it wrong...

      @OP: Three tournaments is not a very convincing sample size. It might as well just be a little swing. You should try to play a few hundred (better: thousand) tournaments extra in order to evaluate your chances of getting winning player.

      Furthermore you have to be sure that MTT's are the right thing for you. They are extremely time consuming and can be very harsh in terms of swings. As soon as you start your session you are comitting for 8 to 10 hours of poker. Can you afforc to invest that much time?
