I played 2 multis yesterday and made the cash in them both - one a 100+ game and one a 250 runner event with 10K added on the new betfair software which I did not find as bad as many have made out. However I didnt finish in the higher placings so a lot of effort for a little return.
HOW TO CHOOSE WHICH MULTI TO ENTER ?
My advice is not just to jump into the next one that is available and to look for some value.
Value can usually be found in 2 different ways.
1) GTD tournaments where the prize is guarentedd no matter how many turn up.
For example if a multi is 2000 gtd and a 20 entry then if there are less than 100 people entered you are getting something for free.
EG Say only 60 people enter then thats 1200 so the software company has to add an extra 800 (in effect as if 40 people have been knocked out without even playing).
Look out for these.
2) My preferred one is when tournies have money added to the prize fund.
Every 2 weeks in interpoker they have a 25k added and a 50k added for very small entry fees of 22$ and 33$ - the only entry requirement is that you have played enough poker to accomodate the points that are required to enter ( points are per raked hand).
If you playing somewhere else and not getting these type of promotions then sign up to interpoker via the raketherake link on the right of my blog - please ref my number if you do.
But these are huge value events - take tonights 50k added as an example where entry fee is 33$.
I estimate 600 players will enter and 600* 33 = 20k. Now they are adding 50k so total purse is 70k - this means your 33$ entry is effectively worth over 100 $ hence massive value.
So 2 things :-
1) if you not currently getting these tourneys then sign up via my link to raketherake and start playing in these huge value games. You don't have to be a big player its just linked to poker points.
2) next time you log on for a game don't just enter the next available multi.
I will be playing the 50k added later and will update you on how I do. Huge prizes available for little cash so fingers crossed.
PS i wont be backing Newcastle any more !!!
