I'm thinking about playing a couple of events. My problem is I usually get sloppy and unfocused after a couple of hours playing the big field tourneys. You gonna play any?
Definitely hear what you're saying. It's a real grind playing six hours only to bubble. Poker is a lot like MMA or any sport for that matter. It's all in the mind. You know an opponent wants to take your head off, so what do you do. Charge and brawl (think Durrr vs Isildur1), lay n pray (nit style like Howard Lederer or Chris Ferguson), counter with precision with a well rounded game (Phil Ivey, Antonious) or utilize experience as an upperhand like (Doyle, Eli Elizra, Johnny Chan, Phil Hellmuth.)
People don't realize there's many different styles of play in poker. So yah I consider poker a sport. Although TAGs are the best fit for tournies I really prefer the maniac mode in collecting as many chips as possible in the early stages rather than getting blinded out.
Investment wise there's so much value in the micro millions, but expect a very large field. A few interesting tournies to look at...
$5.50 KO - Nov. 22
$11 KO - Nov. 23
$5.50 $50k - Nov. 24
$1 for $15k - Nov. 24th
$11 Sunday Storm - Nov. 25
$22 $1 mill - Nov. 25
