    Great pod, totally agree with you on what tournaments are the best. While i am sadly unable to play myself this summer I was able to buy a little action in some players. Like you I rarely buy action but was able to get a piece of some good cash players i know in the Main, milly maker and monster stack so i feel pretty good about that. Gotta get those other income streams going haha.

    Good luck in vegas this summer rob.

    Thank you!

    Another thing I forgot to really mention is opportunity cost. Very tough for me to justify playing the Colossus or whatever else when there's tons of action around town where otherwise there isn't. Hourly is almost always going to be higher in cash.

    Yeah, I don't see how a top level cash professional can achieve a higher hourly at any tournament, including the Main Event. You're just playing for the bink. For me, it's really not worth it. I'd rather buy some action from people playing tournies and just continue crushing cash games in LA during the WSOP. If you're some 10/20 NL+ or nosebleed crusher then it makes a lot more sense to me to play some tournies. You could have a lot more going on and be able to afford the variance.

    I agree. ME slightly different though imo.

    There is a utility factor that I think justifies playing a few small ones a year, which is basically what I do.

    Main Event is just too much value at those stakes to pass up imo. Obviously the utility factor in that tournament is completely out of control.
