A delayed observation from my vacation

It seems to me that some of the Stars sats during the weekday always have overlay.  I played some DS sats that went off very, very short.  I won one that was short at the final table!  I think it started 5 handed at the first table and only wound up with eight at the final table.
I can’t figure out why this is, but my best returns seem to be in sats.  I adjust well to the late stage play in sats (most people handle this situation terribly) and for whatever reason I’ve always had a lot of success in them.  I also like the Turbo rebuys, because it is so fun to play loose and wide open in the early stages.  There is something unnaturally satisfying about playing 75s pre-flop and stacking someone when you hit the nut straight.

The downside about playing well in the sats is that I don’t enjoy turning the T$ back into real money.  I usually play SnGs to clear it, but the quality of play in the higher buy-in SnGs has become pretty good at Stars.  I don’t see nearly as many terrible mistakes as I used to there.  There are a lot of people who appear to have spent a lot of time with the Sit-n-Go Power Tools and are difficult to exploit.  Some of them play way too tight in the early stages and you can build up a chip lead so that you go into the pushbot segment at the end with a few more bullets, but it still becomes something of a crapshoot at that point.  When I used to play SnGs, you could bully at bubble time a lot more easily.
I’m increasing my desire to just buy-in to the WSOP Main Event this year.  I think that may be a crazy idea, but it is really taking hold in my noggin at the moment.  I’m really getting jazzed about the July 1 event, my lovely wife is coming along to provide moral support and encouragement (primarily by hanging out at the Rio spa, I think).
