90mans - Played 12 - 1 win, 2 6th's, 2 8th's and a tenth for a 50% ITM rate and +$6.92
45mans - Played 2 didn't cash -$0.50
Pleased to have played 14 tournaments in October (now 25 this year) and the 25c 90 mans are clearly beatable, hoping the slightly higher buy-in 90 mans will be similarly beatable in future. The downside to the 90mans is the time they take to complete, so I will probably need to have a 2nd game for when time is short. This could be NL cash or the 9mans? NL cash would help with my deep stack play, 9mans would help my push/fold play.
For some reason I never seem to do as well in the 45mans, I think the structure leads to shorter stacks further out from the money than the 90 mans and less time for the villains to do something stupid
I will admit to losing a little bit of motivation after winning a 90man which was a key goal for this year, also half-term holidays meant a break from Poker.
November to do list - Play more 90mans, maybe 3 table rather than 2 table, blog post about my style of play (for feedback), maybe look into SNG wizard free trial if I am to do 9mans as my 2nd game.
