OK!

I'm sorry to hear that big.ben is under the weather and hope he gets well soon. I was looking forward to a battle for first place last night, though I'd be lying if I said I'm not happy to be playing for the "big" buck$...

(...) and a bit nervous. Playing with other people's money kinda makes me feel like there's a bullseye painted on my back with 33 league members aiming at it if I lose. To date the biggest games I've played in have been about a half a dozen daily $40K's, getting my money back once and winning a hundred buck$ once. This means there's a decent chance I'll make a profit but three bombs would be no surprise. Unlike PSO, I don't play for ITM in these tourneys. I could just play some 45-player SNGs with an excellent chance of profit but I'm aiming for the bigger money (and risk).

That said, I'll be playing weekday guaranteed tourneys starting with the $22. I'm looking at a "deepstack" right now to see how long it takes--I suspect too long for me. The $55 will go for a Daily Ninety Grand and I might wait for the Sunday $300K guaranteed version of it, might not. Any thoughts on any of this?

More soon. Feel free to post feedback here. Mucho thanks to the Cowboy for a great league idea, Helena Hand (me a beer please) for her work, and my fellow league members for making it fun and worthwhile.

Hey Jo - I feel the same way and I just have 2 $11 stakes Thats my highest buy-in for an MTT so I also feel the weight of expectation to play well and represent our "team" .

I say go for it and play in as big a guaranteed event as possible. But I'm 100 percent behind any decision anyone of us makes so I wish us all good luck and no playing SCARED!!

I plan to play DAILY FORTY GRAND and maybe the DEEP STACK 11k probably both on Tuesday.

Best wishes to BigBen as well and I hope you are back soon

I finished 667th of 2114, ITM=306. With 9 BBs left I shoved TT, met up with QQ (dang!), flop QJTxx. Why couldn't he 'a had bullets? Sigh...
