Good job staying in profit!

I presume the 50/50's are your favourite format?

I suppose any profit is good but I was disappointed with my last 3 games where I played badly - for instance I pushed all in on the bubble to steal blinds from a similar stacked reg with J8o but his stats where 33/ 24/3 (VPiP, PFR/ Agg) he called me in an instant with K2o.

When I didn't have much cash on the site the D2N's got me established, when they changed to Fifty/50's I moved to 6 Max Limit STT's. My main reason for the move was STT Leaderboard prizes plus there aren't many regs in the limit games (if anything, I'm the reg.) Guess you should go to where you can make the most money.

I've hit some tilt since February but (thanks to the PSO) I think I've cured my problems, my balance is heading in the right direction again. It's good to take a break from your normal game and I enjoyed playing the 25 games, I played them in batches of 6, these were turbo games and I had an overall ROI of 12%. I'd quite happily take that ROI over a few thousand games.

The structures of games on Stars are brilliant and suit a more skilled game. Even the turbo's have a decent enough structure that rewards good play and doesn't rely on bingo play early in a game. I have rakeback on other sites but no other site comes close to Stars, and I include the old Full Tilt into this list.

Hi Ovalman,

Please can you check your figures as I cannot confirm your result. I make your profit slightly different - these are the tourneys where I have small differences in the prizes won.

534143430
534141457
533796883

If you can amend and repost your figures I will confirm and add you to the leaderboard.

Thanks
