Wow,

I'm getting kicked i the teeth. I had such a good run when I did the 45s, but these 90s are messing with my head.

Time to close down the client and review these tourneys. I need to find out how much is variance and how much is bad adjustments and poor play.

Troy, I personally don't like the 90's because the 45's are shorter and work for me. If you want to switch to 45's do it.

I personally prefer the 90 mans because they are more rewarding when you get a deep run but its down to you cause they take a long time

Played more of the 45 man's myself but liked the 90's just fine. I noticed that now the starting chips in the 90's is 1500 instead of 2000 like they were when I could play (US peep here ). Can't remember if the blinds jumps were every 15 minutes though.

The biggest difference I can remember between the 45 mans and the 90 mans when I played them was that the bubble in the 90 mans would last forever due to the average stack size once you got to the final 2 tables being way out of whack with the blinds.

You are correct there the bubble lasts FOREVER in the 90 mans lol thinks its better on the 45 mans because youve already made the final table

The reward in the 90s is much nicer, however I was struggling to get to that point. When I switched to 45s it wasn't much better, but my frustration wasn't as bad since I hadn't spent as long playing. I finally took a few days away and it has helped. I am a little reluctant to go back to the 90s since the 45s seem to be in my comfort zone, but I will eventually.

Congratulations to all who complete the challenge this month.
