Thanks guys.

Sad day today - sorting out internet for my new apartment, discovered they don't have fiberoptic cabling in the area so I can't keep my current 60MB/s connection. Dropping down to around 8MB/s. Someone with regular internet please reassure me that I'm not going to be living in a waking nightmare of loading times and single-tasking?

8Mb/s is more than enough for poker.

I live in a rural zone have a 2Mb/s and play just fine. Watching youtube is no problem also, just sometimes when I watch at 720p or 1080p I have to pause and let load the videos for a bit.

If those 8Mb/s are real and guaranteed, then you'll be fine. Just don't expect to download porn movies in 10 minutes

I live in the sticks and we're with BT. I travel into the city to my brother's house to play poker because they have a very reliable fibre-optic connection with virgin.
The connection at my own house is pretty much unplayable. When I move out, I'd literally rather live in a slum with fibre-optic, than a decent area without.

Oh, sorry btw, maybe it'll be better for you. To be fair, ours was ok until BT decided to do an "upgrade", ****ed something up, and then couldn't fix it despite sending out engineers on half-a-dozen occasions.
Useless excuse of a company.

Yeah no way I'm going with BT. Too many horror stories about their service. Sticking with Virgin Media for simplicity.

I have 1 mbps ON A GOOD DAY, usually more like .70 sigh. My internet sucks and I hate it. As long as I'm not downloading anything or searching the net too hard I can play as many poker tables as I want problem free. You should be fiiiine with 8 :/ I would pay any amount to have FAST and reliable internet. But I guess that's a price you pay for living out in the country
As stated above, gonna just take a little longer to download your porn

Yeah, honestly my setup is decent but my apartment right now is so crappy that I was a little embarrassed to post it. Not to mention my camera wasn't working. In my new place I'll have no excuse, so once I get my new desk I'll post a pic. I doubt you'll get too many pics of me/my stuff though, just bc I'm not crazy about posting pics in general these days - haven't uploaded a photo to Facebook in about 3 years.

As for giraffes, I'll post one sometime I guess, but they're really meaningless. I have no idea what my total profit for this year is, and I almost don't want to know. Normally I would have some clue what my volume has been like, but right now I don't know that either. MTTs are a weird game.

Thanks guys, couldn't take it down in the end, got 16th along with 107th in the Milly or something. Also shipped the Storm 5r on .fr though for about 2.2k EUR and got 6th in the Storm 10r as well. Pretty decent Sunday all told. Could have been bigger obviously, but nbd. Playing tomorrow as well even though I didn't plan on it, just because I made day 2 of the 'four in a row' 50eur 200k on .fr with 16bb. Let's goooo.

well played today, must be tough to make such deep runs only to come up a bit short but if you keep putting yourself in these situations I'm sure you'll ship a big one soon enough. gl tomorrow

Thanks. It's not really that tough to be honest, since it's a big chunk of what playing MTTs is. It's pretty frustrating to play in games that require coming up short so frequently, but after a while it's just a non-event. After a while you've had so many near misses that you lose track.
