Took me 6 hours but I have made a final table.

3571 entries and we are down to the final 7 players.
I cant remember the last time i made final table I am happy bout it but not by much. Why?

Because it is the freeroll to the weekly round 2 of your choice.

Im even playing a game that i never play. nl2-7

Is this a sign of things to come?
Should I be changing my game of choice to 2-7?

I've always wondered why people play to the final table in those.
Me, as soon as I get a ticket, I sit out and go play/do something else.

I mean, after 4-5 hours of grind, which is usually what it takes to get one, the last thing I want to do is to go on playing those... er... ladies and gentlemen - who have usually been insulting me profusely because I'm such an idiot, in their opinion, as to actually run the clock on the bubble (which is all that counts there being no money in the tourney).
By which process not only I end up getting my ticket, but usually also make them get one - which they would usually fast-donk to elimination if I weren't there :)

So I'm really happy to get out of there after the bubble, why would you keep playing?

(I got me three tickets this week actually, not bad considering I only played like six. I got badugi, razz and FL Omaha8... and only made 64 cents in the Saturday WR2, but better than 0 I guess :)

Nice run Norman 187. I've final tabled one before and placed 2nd, just played for the fun and challenge and practice of going deep in it after getting a ticket. I also played all of these different tournaments to get practice playing all the different game types, good solid tight play can easily stack you up in these for deep runs from people paying off your monster hands with their marginal holdings.
Good luck with your tickets in the weekly round 2 guys!
