    Finally it's here! Very nice vid.

    Why do you think PT4 is that much better than HM2? Or you just didn't use HM2? =)

    Also, what's your opinion about tableninja2? Is it any better than first one?

    Would you say that grinding standard speed 180mans would:

    a) help me cope with the fact that there are few <1k player mtts in the early afternoons european time
    b) help me improve my game handling short stacks
    c) net me a supplementary source of income to accomodate daily evening mtt play

    I had been planning to invest some time into this for a while now but I never got settled.

    1 - I do have PT4 myself and I think its much more user friendly (perhaps due to familiarity). I have had horses with HEM and they seem to have had problems with it in the past. I have recently converted some people from HEM to PT4 and they said they much preferred it. I'm sure HEM is fine, but I much prefer PT4 personally.

    2 - Thanks for the feedback, greatly appreciated.

    3 - The reg speed 180 mans would be a great variance breaker if you were grinding reg speed MTTs. They would also be great games for you to play to help manage your bankroll too as I don't think they're many regs who are grinding reg speed 180s.

    As for short stacked play, the reg speeds tend to play much deeper than the turbos, but I'm not sure how they play in terms of stack depth vs most reg speed MTT's. Perhaps someone who plays both who is reading this might be able to help me out with this one?

    Allways nice to hear your english accent , looov it :)

    Great video , I really like the fact that we can rewatch the coaching sessions :)

    Question i have : I like to play all kinda micro satelites (mostly 1xturbo sats ) but I would like to mix that up with 2.50 turbo 180's.
    Do you think it 's better to play 180's only to remain in "180 mode" ? I have a Roi of +60% over a small sample ( +- 200 games)
