I kinda cheated on my quest.
I was getting bored with the FPP sats, so I played an hour or so of 5/10. The game was pretty good and I took $200 or so off the table. I felt pretty much in control of my game and was playing good. Later last night, I noticed that one of the fishier players from the 5/10 was now playing 15/30. I sat in that game even though my buy-in was over half my bankroll (and almost all my cash). An hour or two later and I had doubled my roll. This isn’t the kind of outcome that is effective at keeping me at the FPP tables.
I’ve been looking at the 2009 WSOP schedule and I think that my edge is the biggest at the limit tourneys. This may be in part because I did so well in the one last year, but I think that it is more than that. Anyhow, they seem to run limit events every Friday. I could fly out on Thursday after work and back on Sunday and probably do a number of them. Unless I made the final table, I would be done on Saturday.
The problem in terms of your EV is that the buy-in is only $1,500 or $2,000 for most of the events and I’d spend nearly that much in airfare and hotel. My best EV probably would result from losing on Day One and hitting the cash tables all day Saturday.
