      Hey guys!

      This is going to be a new blog of mine to cover my first steps in MTTs. It's better to keep those results separated so I'll try to not mess this blog with cash games results (there's another blog for them).

      MTT history:
      I didnt like playing them, but entered big freerolls if got tickets (VIP 100k monthly on Stars, 5k monthly on ipoker - 70 players only, etc.) and didnt perform very well except one 5k freeroll i won (for $1350)...
      About a week ago, I played that tourney again and finished 7th for $175 and was checking my old accounts on different platforms for any left money, tickets or some loyalty points and realized I still have 107,000 FPP & $123 on Stars.

      Short-term plan:
      So, there's where journey begins. I'll play all 150-1,000 fpp tourneys and satellits and use T$ for any MTT in a range of $5-$10 for now.

      Long-term plan:
      Expected BRM is 100BIs for any online MTT and 40BIs for live ones. I'll play Sunday majors on Stars in June '11 before we're leaving to Vegas.


      $123.41 - PokerStars
      T$5.5 - PokerStars
      €40.18 - Titan
      $172.92 - Mansion
      105,703 fpp - PokerStars

      - I'll count Titan's money as $ to make it easier
      - Mansion & Titan money are locked and some points requirements have to be met before withdrawing
      - there's no BRM for FPP points, but i'll count them at $0.01/fpp (standard value is 0.016 but i cant exchange them)

      BR: $1399
