Only bonus that doesnt hit your MGR is midyear/endofyear ironman bonus.

It doesn't matter either way if the Iron Man bonuses effect your MGR, because they're worth it.

Obviously, wasn't trying to imply otherwise. Any bonus is much better then no bonus at all.

Not if other things from the store are better. I can see the IronDays or continuing months being useful if you need them and I think I heard that the $75 token is the most useful as there's no MGR hit unless the tournament you buy in for has an overlay. That said I don't really care to play $26 or $75 tournaments, so I'm sure I'll buy the bonuses once I've saved up more medals.

I once calculated the $ per medal for everything in the ironman store, and I don't have the spreadsheet anymore, but the tournament tokens were by far the best deal. Since I consider myself a dog in tournies, however, I don't think I'd realize the EV from them, so I always only bought cash bonuses.

Ug. I've been playing so much better lately, but then I decide to spew off a stack. I think I need to make myself count to 3 before making plays. Do you guys ever click and insta regret it?

Well, usually I regret it afterwards when I stand still and look at the crap I've been pulling off. I really need to take more time for my decisions.

Egozocker's definitely a multitabling reg, I see him a ton (2nd most hands in my DB, not including myself of course). Stats look pretty 2+2ish. Also seen you around, Smoking Dough--don't think we've mixed it up at all, since I have a note that you're 2+2 and thus I avoid you.

It will come back Teddie!

Today had my first private coaching after my 48 hour break. In this break I learned some more theory & watched Stx/PS vids

SSSOOO true...just stick with it, i'm just getting out of a two month downswing and looking at it now, it is amazing how you just don't think period...and when you do it's generally not anything constructive.

GL teddie, keep ur head up
