So I have played on PS for a while and am continuing to build my game/consistancy as a player. I have played in many different tournaments ranging from the .02 990 mtt to the Super Tuesday. It's been up and down.

I am a player who plays more TAG style than anything, but am also a player who switches it up. I love pressure situatioms so thats why I prefer turbos.

My question is... If you were in my shoes about to sit down on PS with a $25 bankroll, what tourney would you stick with?

Just looking for some opinions. Im kind of torn. Ive done good in the 50c 360 man, $2.50 180 mans, etc, etc, but can't seem to find the right one.

Opinions?

Generally for MTTs I utilise a 100BI bank-roll managment. I don't know what games there are $0.25 or lower, but I certainly wouldn't go higher than $0.50 until you build up your roll a bit.

Playing the smaller-field SNG MTTs might be a good idea until you get a bigger roll as the variance is much lower with the smaller fields and you are less likely to go busto.

With $25, I'd be playing the 25 cent 45's and 90's or 25 cent MTT. Any higher stake would make me risk losing my bankroll when a variance streak hits, so that's all I can play until I build up my bankroll to a higher level. To play 50 cent games, I need $50 in it.

Ya Placed 39/373. Played a 320 Wednesday tourney and got 21st. Got 3rd in a pacific Rim rim event amd 80th in a Sunday Million annaversiry event (busted out with KK) on river... Some of my better results from a while ago.

Most recently the best I got was I think a 7th in one of the $1.10 + rebuy (60k GTD.)

Trying to get back up there though
