My strategy is to get in and draw to any pair - no keeping A kickers. Try and trip up.

I've never deposited a dime into PokerRoom (I have an account but have only used it to goof around with play money Chinese poker). If the PL Draw tournaments are going to be a regular thing, I might have to ship some money there.

Oh, IMO playing every pair is too loose for PL Draw. Two pair and low trips are the trickiest hands to play in draw-you got to know when to value bet them, when to check and hope to get a showdown, and when to throw those trips away. Sometimes "tripping up" your low pair is the worst thing that can happen to you. I've busted out of many tourneys overplaying these hands and I usually find that I've made at least one big "Hellmuthian" laydown when I go deep in a PL Draw tourney. You can be a bit looser with flush draws in PL than limit if you've got a table that will pay you off if you hit.

Bayes,
You may want to give PR a try as the number of draw players seems fairly strong there (relatively speaking of course). Active tables above 1/2 happen way more there than other sites I've played at (selective memory probably).

I played today. Interesting. I am a little surprised about too many 4 of a kind, but...

Still interesting. It's a rebuy tourney.

Ok, I put some money in PokerRoom and played some 1/2 limit for a few minutes (up $10-passive competition) and then played the $10+1/one rebuy/one addon tournament. I finished 7th/141 and made $110. I'd say the competition is less aggressive than 24h (less maniacs, more calling stations and rocks) but not quite as passive as Planet.

I really don't like their software and the hand-for-hand (starting 4 before the bubble and continuing AFTER the bubble) was awful. I'll probably try this tournament a few more times before deciding if I want to be a regular or not.

This tourney (at least tonight) starts at the exact same time as the 5/rebuy event at 24h, which I skipped tonight. Does anyone know if this tournament is going to be every night or not? I looked at the tournament schedule on their website and it had nothing about any draw tournaments.

Oh, I'm using a secret non-Bayesian alias at PokerRoom. Just thought it would be fun to use a different username-I'm Tom Bayes at every other room I've ever played.
