is that how it works? Ya i take the bonus medals. Rather not have to worry about making the tournaments. Guess it might be worth it though for the iron man tournament. I hear there is about 400-500 runners for the 30k?

Poker related question:

In an effort not to be weak tight I think I've turned into a spewbox. How to be fixing?

I really love playing 25NL again, it's sooo good for your confidence after you had a very bad period of suck outs and break eveness

Try to find a good balance,
another thing you can do is bring your VPIP down a bit....
some people aren't comfortable with raising certain hands which cost them to become VPIP Tight, Aggression Passive

it's better to be a 12/8 then a 15/6

I played about 1200 hands of 50NL this afternoon and only show 117 points? That can't be right? Anyone else notice a problem?

Definitely. I just finished a short session at 50NL where I played at least 5 pots > 100BBs. Iron Man status page shows 0.00 points for the day. Idk, but FT makes me mad a lot. That's not good.

Thanks for the answers concerning my question about the medals, guys. At least I got how that works now.

A ton of small stakes FR players are moving to FT, (according to their chat thread). What's up with that? How much more will this make the move to 100NL suck?

Yeah, that sucks. On one hand, it sucks our chat thread isn't poppin off. But on the other hand that means less 2+2ers to tangle with at the tables.

Silver lining: you know how they play?

Any indication why they are moving?

I really don't know.

I figure it can't be rakeback if they're 100NL regs?

I guess it's to our benefit if they believe the games are fishier? I'm not sure how that could be with Stars larger playing base though.

In the little I've played Stars, I find it more passive than FTP, but that's at lower levels.

I can hope you're intimating they're losing players at Stars.

Yeah, be patient. I honestly can't remember how long they took for me, but it was a while. If you don't get word, ask when its been a week.

Re: ***Official 2009 Micro Stakes FR Full Tilt Regulars Thread***

I officially suck at moving up.

Here's how it goes.

1. Take shot.
2. Coolers or bad beats - run like #*$. Lose a couple BI.
3. Think that I'm not tilting and it's all good.
4. Tilt of another couple buy-ins.
5. Realize I really am tilting.
6. Feel insane monkey tilt coming on - close tables (thank god).

Back to 25 with me for a while. This is something I have to work on.

PS You're welcome for the tilt buy-ins people. I know at least one person in this thread can thank me lol.
