November Update 1

I haven't been playing quite as much this month, and I don't feel I've been running too well. More than once I've had to overcome a large deficit at the start of a session before making a comeback.

I did win $2k though yesterday in the Full Tilt Iron Man tournament by coming 4th out of 331. I never play MTTs these days so it was a nice result. The overall standard was quite poor and it was pretty easy to steal/re-steal and build a nice stack.

Overall this month, I'm up $6,900 after ~60 hours.

Nice money finish!

I should probably start playing these tournaments. More EV+ than the "medals" I think.

For the "muppet of the day" contest, I propose this hand played by the pro Nenad Medic against me yesterday night.

Expert play!

How often are these iron man tourneys on? I'm pretty sure I must qualify for them?

Kenny. They're on once a month (2nd Saturday each month?)

Go to Cashier --> My Promotions --> Iron Man Challenge --> Check my Status --> Select Freeroll

Then Options (from Full Tilt Lobby) --> Requests --> Registered in Tournaments (Details will appear here a few days before tournament is scheduled.)
