Well I'll be honest I haven't been playing much the last couple weeks. I blame college football and NCAA 09 for the Xbox 360. I've been participating in an online dynasty with some family members. The game isn't perfect, but the online dynasty feature sure is great.
I did play a couple minor .50 tournaments last week. They both pretty much went the same. I made the money in both tournaments, but I pretty much rode the short stack the whole way and just never could catch up with the chip average. I hope to pick it back up again soon.
