guy had just joined the table , but opened the first few hands and looked like a solid player who would be opening fairly wide from the cutoff. He had a little more chips then me at about 180,000 compared to my 135,000 about, but my reship was for enough of his stack that i didnt think he could call it light. The way the venetian payouts work it doesnt really matter if you get 6th or 50th, so i really wanted to play for a top spot. i think that player was probably opening 30%-40% or so and probably calling off with about 10%-15% of hands. With 13500 antees and blinds and 15000 his raise i pick up 28500 chips when he doesnt call..Im sure this play will show profit long run, but still obv 2nd guessed my decision when he wakes with aa. I probably would of been better off just taking my spots to open to steal blinds etc, but my stack was getting short at 22 bb's also so cant be raise folding to often.

Playing the $550 at venetian tommarow, hopefully i can get deep again but run better once i get deep. The venetian structure is kinda weird- theres lots of play early on, but once you get deep in it the antees build the pots massively, like when i went out the blinds were 3000-6000 with 500 antee. so 13500 in every pot before any raises etc. and everyone stack sizes were around 10-40 bb, with alot more 10-25 bb stacks.

Just trying to explain my reasoning i guess.. not really use to mtt variance to much, but just want to let you guys know my thought process, so it doesnt look like im just donking off every tourney.

If the structure is bad and the blinds are large, dont be scared to get in there and gamble. Playing for first is clearly the right thing to do in these. Also, variance is crazy, even if you are great at poker. Thats just part of the game. Also, make sure you dont have any tells, as online players moving to live usually give away a ton. Good luck.

chillin, where did you find the table draw? (I don't see it on wsop.com or pokernews.com, but sometimes I'm blind, too.)

Edit: nevermind, found it. Kevmath posted a link in http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/61.../#post19728401

BR is sitting at $8,862.

ive cashed 2 of 18 events thus far, wsop #39 shootout for $5620, and a venetian $350 for $772. I think i am running far under expected ev, but thus is mtt variance. We have a few more shots including the $1k wsop tommarow, RUNN GOOD 1X!!

I'm done guys. The venetians are structured so badly.There rly just a waste of time with slow structures large stacks to start, then when u get deep it's a crap shoot.

The final BR is $7,862. I will have your monies shipped within the next day.
Sorry that I couldn't close out one of those deep runs(wsop shootout, or 3 venetians I had good size stacks deep).

It's funny you say that about the Venetians......I have pieces of several people this summer. My "horses" have done well on the whole at WSOP tourneys with some good scores in there, and none has had any significant success at the V this summer (I am positive every "horse" I have is in the red in V tourneys this summer).

Obviously someone is winning (none that I invested in)....but who? Maybe there is too much play early (e.g hardly anyone busts the first few levels) which creates a massive amount of 10-30bb stacks for the late levels? I have not played a V this summer personally, but it seems this way.

Anyway - I digress - tough run this summer - still better than my 2009, so you have that going for you (2010 has been great so far, so it changes on a dime).
