    Jalopy, I have only played a grand total of 3 rush tournaments so far (no wonder I have no medals!!!), but I think you'll like them. And since you signed up for rakeback with Pokerology I just shipped you $4.40 to try for yourself (if you win ship me back the buy-in).

    I noticed Rycky was playing in one the other day while recording a video for us lot. I think this is unwise because you should devote all your attention to the rush tournament. There is a quick fold button and the quick fold button should be your friend. See as many hands as possible and don't wait for the action to get to you before folding. You miss out on too many opportunities. I'm not saying play more hands, just see more hands. What's your take on that Rycky?

    Out in 8500 place AJ against A3 and Pocket 10's. That was quick.
    Poker is like fishing, you have to use the right bait to catch the big fish.

    I beg to differ about the Quick fold. Someone on another site did a 12k hand breakdown of Rush and found that due to quick fold while on the Co, Button and SB he had a high steal rate. Others in front of him tended to fold already making it easy for him to steal small pots.

    I'm quite use to played 6-8 tables, so running just 2 with one being a rush MTT really doesn't hurt me.

    Now playing 3 rush SNGs among about 5 or 6 games does get a little fun, I was doing that on Tuesday night. However, I'm not missing anything. TBH playing two rush games out of my 6 that I have running is probably the most I should be doing to be on the safe side.

    The opportunity to steal is massive and it's a good idea to step it up. I don't disagree with that at all. But let's say you're in late position or in the SB with a hand you won't play unless you're given the opportunity (i.e. nobody has opened). This is when you should be quick folding rather than waiting for the fold button to appear when it's your turn.

    If you play it like a regular tournament and don't make use of seeing more hands then you're not playing the game properly, IMO. The other players are whizzing through the hands and accumulating chips from the worst players while you play 60 hands per hour compared to their 300.

    If you're playing rush and regular tournaments at the same time then fine, but the rush game should be your focus of attention.

    LOL...my eyes bugged out when I saw the transfer. I thought my rakeback skyrocketed somehow (I did win my biggest pots ever this week) but before I sent you a personal message I thought I would check the forums first

    Thanks Tim I really appreciate assist with giving the Rush tourney a try. Pokerology just keeps paying dividends!

    I'll give one of the tourneys a shot this weekend and let you know how it goes. Hopefully I'll be refunding that buy-in :).
