A couple of guys in the poker league have been playing in the low buyin events at Choctaw with 3k starting stack. Not surprisingly, the guy who won the league final table last year, and is currently 2nd, cashed in a $125 event after rebuying once. He's a very consistent player.
I'll be taking a shot at Ring Event #12. I figured rather than dealing with the variance of the lowest buyin tournaments that I'd give myself a chance to play a lot more poker with a bigger starting stack and longer blind levels. I'll be studying up and trying to patch as many leaks as possible by memorizing odds etc.
There'll be some great players there so I'm gonna need some luck!
