    soaking up ethanol, moving on up
    my biggest auto-cash in a tourney i didn't turn up for is also < $100. I agree that's somewhat of a fail.

    Starts me thinking of others who get awesome incomes for doing jack shit.
    Perhaps we should start a thread or pole on it.

    I cherished the first few, but it soon became annoying. (Not bragging, just playing a lot of HU).
    I also thought it would be more useful to have non cash emails to balance it and to see how the damage was caused on certain nights.

    Yeah, i always get those E-Mails, have thousands now in my mailbox LOL. I think there is an option in the main lobby for ON/OFF.
    I find these emails also useful for tracking results, if i play some stakes or something.

    That's the problem I found, that they didn't help track results because the other half of the information needed for tracking was missing.
    And I wasn't remembering everything I'd played and not cashed.
    And of course there are much better ways to track results anyway.

    A friend of mine cashed over 400€ in this event when he was away (and almost blinded out, like 10% stack remaining) :

    I played it and got 600€ with over average stack. There's a lot of reasons why our gambling monopoly haven't got really any players to ther site

    On a sidenote, I cashed without playing any hands (fold them all) yesterday PLO 6 card mini-FTOPS. Got 3,3bb left, over half starting stack! Nice event.
