Skillz Game Tonight - Pot Limit Omaha Hi

Tonight should be a bit faster then the Limit Games, I hope to see you all out there.

Played both of the Tuckfard Opens last night. At both of them I was Chip Leader at some point of the final table. Of course, I didnt cash in either one of them, but made about 1/2 my money back with the $1 Knockouts. I was truly distracted when I found my new favorite tournamnet, althought it is a time consumer. $22 + $2 Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo on Pokerstars, which started somewhere between 6 and 7 pm. Signed up for it seeing that it was a SuperStack, thinking I could get more play. Little did I know until I looked after we stared that the blind levels went up only every 30 minutes. With 90 runners, we had only lost 6 after the first hour, and I played above my starting stack most of the night, having a 2nd or 3rd stack for much of the middle part of the tournament. However I had the Chip Leader (which had at least twice my chips at this lowest) at my table after that first hour until I got knocked out. When we got down to 3 tables, probably 70% of the chips were on my table, with me having the 12th biggest stack in the tournamnet, but only the 6th biggest stack at my own table! I eventually finished in 12th, after 5 1/2 hours of play. Fantastic way to work on my Omaha game.

I hate playing tournaments with really lopsided table chip counts...unless I'm chip leader, but still, that can really stuck being shorty at a table.

How long does it take to win that tournament?
