Default FTOPS Sweat Thread - May 06

I'll post a sweat thread every day, showing the events I'm playing and the start times so those that would like to watch are able. I'll post some HHs, chip counts, etc. Anyone else playing events is welcome to do likewise.

Today we have...

$216 6Max NLHE (#84232335)

- 21:00 EST
- $1,000,000 guarantee (brain fart on the math, there might be a semi-significant overlay)
- 5k starting stack, 12 minute blinds

$22 6Max NLHE (#84239296)

- 21:05 EST
- $200,000 guarantee (should cover)
- 5k starting stack, 10 minute blinds

Other tournaments I'll play :

Stars 70k
Stars 40k
Stars 15k
FTP 75k
FTP 35k
FTP 50k

If I lose tables early I'll add in the FTP 25k and/or the Stars 20k.

I should also make a request. It would be in everyone's best interest to make the following limitations on chatting with me at the table...

- Don't ever say anything that has anything to do with strategy/my aggression/etc
- Don't say gl to me before we're ITM
- Don't ever mention staking

Doing any of these things will create an impression for the other players that I do not want. Having 6 people say "gl" in the first blind level makes it seem like this is a big deal, and I'd prefer them not to think this. Mentioning staking suggests to the other players that I am playing above my head. You see where I'm going with this.

I'll be in IRC the whole time, so if you'd like to chat, please do so there.

I suppose we can make this the official FTOPS sweat thread for everyone else who is playing too?

Who else is playing the FTOPS events tomorrow? I'll be playing Event 1 and most likely the mini that goes with it.

Maybe post event numbers also since you are registered for about 500 tourneys.

Hand too strong to r/f, too weak to r/c, too strong to open-fold since pushing is massively +EV, so, by process of elimination, we arrive at my favorite play
